Just emailed the CA...he said there was no progress and I should wait for week 33 for an update. :-(

You will get yours eventually, maybe not so long after mine as it it probably shipped by truck to the midwest. Mine finished production but doesn't get to the West Coast VPC until 8/17 (slow train) so I might not get it until a few days after that. I'm hoping Jon is working his mojo.

Ordered our space Grey, M Sports 30D on the same day. Built last week of July, embarked on ship Sunday 5 Aug, due in country second week of Sep. 1-2 weeks to be cleared through customs and other administrivia and delivery end Sep, early Oct. That beats the 4 and half months my BMW K1600GT motorcycle took from order to delivery and the five months our current Honda took from order to delivery from Thailand - almost right next door.

I'm happy for you...but read your account of order-to-delivery as "fingers nails on a chalk board"...given that I ordered before that I still have no confirmed production date on the phone/web. Oh well...enjoy the car.

I ordered July 27. Was just told by the dealer that it should go into production the third week of August.

Cool...what did you order? Sounds like you might have the car in your possession within a month of ordering.

I went with a Carbon Black 35i. Black leather with Aluminum trim. Almost the full set of options except Cold Weather 2 and the driver assistance package (although I did add on the HUD individually). I can't wait. This will be my first time ever buying a car for myself.

Once a VIN number is assigned...does anyone have a clue how far we are from production? Is it a sign thigns are about to happen or could this still be a few weeks?

I just got my video today, too. It was fun to watch and several cameras caught my car getting built, but the last camera was not working - the one where it drives off the line!! PCD is next Thursday.

Same here, last camera wasn't working in my video either. It seems our cards were built pretty close together.

The phone number offers an "estimated completion" date...not sure how much weight the "estimated" carries, however, something is better than nothing. Hopefully it is finished before, but if not, a day or two more on the other end won't make a big difference. Just call 1-800-831-1117 "option 2" and enter your production number.

Website still says in production. I generally find it to be a day or say behind my dealer's updates.

We placed order for our 28i the evening of July 10th and delivery to dealer in Doylestown PA was last Friday or Saturday while I was away at a company meeting. We were not expecting it to come in until late August and that was not a push because we are away on vacation fro 8/19 till 9/2. However we will be picking the car up tomorrow and be able to take it on our two week vacation to OBX.
