The dealer placed my order earlier today! I'm so excited
He said N06245 (N AS IN NANCY!) but I'm pretty sure its going to be M06245. skruffy, can you see it?
I was wondering how long it's taking you guys to get build dates and / or VIN #s...
I put in an order and immediately got a commission number, and was told 2 weeks for build date, a month for VIN. It's been close to a month, and I still don't even have a build date, and I keep getting told that "VW isn't giving us information."
Does this sound right, or am I getting taken? Should I start looking at other dealerships to order one through?
Someone that is in the know can correct me if I'm wrong, but from what I understand, the allocation comes under a model as a whole, not by 2dr/4dr or base/premium packages...
For example, a dealer is allocated one R, and they have three customers that have ordered. What I've read is that the dealer then can choose the configuration that should go forward to be built first and that order will move to "Factory Order Bank" status and go forward with being built. At that point, I think it's just up to the dealer to pick the order that came in first (First Come, First Serve type thing).
Can a dealer chime in to verify?
My order M00144 was placed on 9/22 and I was told by the GSM at the time I was the "first" in line. Well, he was fired and the new GSM, unhappy with the agreement I had with the previous guy concerning the terms of my purchase (involved buying back a car I bought from the dealership), is telling me now that I am actually 2nd in line.
So now my number is still "IS Order Bank" and I am beginning to wonder when I will see my car. I don't really care if I'm first or second, but if that means the difference between getting the car Dec/Jan or Feb/March/April... well, I will be upset about that.
Is there any sense as to when ISOB will be built? Is there any sense that lower numbers are built before higher numbers? If you're not getting a dealer's first car, any idea when the next round is arriving? thanks.
