      Unfortunatly, I can't post pics yet. The car is in Brunswick waiting to be loaded on a transport truck. Maybe next week if I'm lucky. At least the salesman was kind enough to give me a PDF of the window sticker.

      I got a text from my dealer this morning telling me that my car's status has updated and the car is now on a truck. So I stopped by the dealership at lunch and met the salesman for the first time (all of our correspondence thus far has been via text/phone/e-mail).

      The car should be here Wednesday! And to make things ever better, I'm getting 1.9% financing assuming the credit application comes back good (not going to be a problem, obviously). Pretty excited!

      Sounds like they're not wasting any time moving cars from Davisville. Good thing mine is coming through there too. I'm betting I'll be able to drive it home by about next Friday or so. Worst case scenario, some time the week after.

      Is yours on the Olympian Highway too or already in port? Mine is on there, delivery to RI got pushed back to the 12th but I am still hoping I get to pick her up by the week of the 23rd!

      SCRIBBINS FROM BOSTON MASS! Congrats Dude! You are the first Vortexian with a Registered USA Spec R to post his pictures (make that one picture) of his new ride!

      Now we would like to see more once it's all detailed and purdy.... good going!

      PS: To Mod.. Ok I moved it here like you asked... but since Scibbins was asked to post better pictures other than just one from the rear, off color in a shop on the other thread... it's only fair that we keep it going, plus we would also like to know how it drives, feels, his first impressions etc etc!

      Had mine ordered for a while now, was waiting to take delivery in March/April.... Turns out the local dealership had an un-sold order of the exact same specs (2 door Blue Loaded) coming tonight. I already signed the papers, take delivery tomorrow morning.

      There will be an un-sold Loaded 2 door Rising blue at Garnet VW in PA around April

      Nope, Seven Seas Highway. Due the 16th. Don't know why it had to sit at the port from Dec 6th to Jan 7th but at least its moving now. I bet we'll see less lag time in the US ports for the ships that are coming later, since they've already delivered (to customers) a couple cars and the frequency of ships is slowing down to one every couple weeks, so theres probably less total boat traffic and fewer cars to move now that its the slow season for buying cars.

      Considering they can unload the entire boat in less than a day and the drive from RI to NY is like 3 hours, I don't see why I couldn't take delivery of my car by Friday of next week if it gets unloaded Monday of next week. We'll see, though.

      Ah ok, I like your optimism. I am taking the other angle - Olympian Highway will be in RI port tomorrow and I am telling myself I will see the car the week of Jan 23rd - and mine only has an hour ride to CT

      I sat in an unsold R today in Winston-Salem and the seats were AMAZING. I've sat in Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsches... the seats in an R are just as good or better than any of these.
