      Looking for RB 4DR with Nav. I told myself that I would be okay with white, as my current car is white, but I know I would just end up regretting it when I saw a RB R on the road. So I'm sticking to my guns and waiting for what I originally wanted. I just keep hoping the April date gets moved up to mid March or so, but being that production hasn't even started, I'm not holding my breath.

      For the west coasters (not the PNW) the Rhea Leader is finally docked in San Diego and unloading our cars. Not much longer now.

      I just heard that there was a "hold" at VW Quality check at the port in Houston...and that may be affecting all the ports

      Nope. Probably something minor. I imagine we'll find out when the folks who already have them get a letter from VW to bring it in.

      SO far looks like they've been coming through Houston and railed up to there.

      Whatever the recall is for..it must be a quick fix. Mine went into VW QC yesterday...and was released to transport to dealer today. Supposedly they are expediting the R's....

      I hope this hasn't been asked already but 39 pages is a lot to sift through...

      How does dealer allocation work exactly?

      I have an order with a deposit in IS order bank currently.
      The dealer I ordered with had gotten at least two of the initial production run, what are the chances they will get two more? (one I ordered and one they were ordering for stock).
      The dealer told me mine was marked as sold when the order was placed, and had my name associated with it...but when tracked in this thread the status was simply IS order bank.

      I have zero problems waiting 120+ days to get a car...if it's actually coming.
      I wouldn't be crazy about waiting 120 days for my order to remain in IS order bank however.

      Sorry if these are dumb questions, I have never ordered with VW before.

      Not a dumb question. No one really knows how the allocation system determines how many a dealer gets. But I'd be surprised if you sat in IS Order Bank for that long.

      I'm in exact same boat. I'm not sure that even though I have a commission # that it's a LOCK that the car is for certain until it hits Factory Order Bank status. At that point you get an actual date right? Please confirm. I was told my dealer had to have his orders in the system by today the 20th. Mine is in so now it's set to change status I hope.

      I also have a question. My dealer had 3 cars allocated to them. By the time I contacted them they had sold 2 of them and 1 was unclaimed. The unclaimed one was not to my specifications but they claim they were able to change it last minute and it is now listed in Factory Order Bank. Does this seem right? Is a dealer able to change a car? Or are they stringing me along hoping I will just buy it the way it is?
