Previous Night


I sat with my sales manager on the evening of November 13th (it was the 14th in Munich) as he and I processed the order. He pulled up his allotment screen and there she was, waiting to be customized. Even he said that it was somewhat of a stroke of luck to have a unit sitting at the doorstep of production. Particularly, given that as we are in Utah, most of their allotment is for X-Drive units. We ordered it and it rolled into production a few hours later. The other stroke of luck was the timing of the ship. Often, a vehicle will not make the first ship - mine did. It's scheduled to arrive in Port Hueneme (Oxnard), CA on December, 26th. That is less than 6 weeks from the time I placed the order!! When I ordered, I was told 3 months. I must say, I am both impressed and rather stoked!!
