i3's On Hold at VPC

If anyone has an i3 incoming or you are planning to buy one in May off a dealer's lot you might be waiting a while. It seems that all incoming i3's are being held at the various VPC's around the county awaiting a software update. Our new car is stuck in Oxnard with a reported 700 other i3's. The latest report is that the software will not be available before May 15th. Even assuming the code shows up on time how long it will take the folks at the VPC to update hundreds of cars is anyone's guess.

Interesting because I bought my i3 (build date of 11/16) off the lot Sunday (05/13). When I asked, they said service repairs had already been made. Hmm, I wonder if they really were. The salesman never mentioned a software update. He said there was a recall on REX units due to a gas tank vent line rubbing on metal and possibly causing a vent line leak.
