So just out of curiousity; of everyone that has ordered and is expecting has anyone gotten anything more then Unscheduled/Clean?

I havent heard anyone chime in saying its coming, its coming and they have been building for a bit now. I guess i was just expecting a few of us 2 have rides enroute.

i think there's been a couple with build dates. and you're right, those pics from the plant certainly show maybe 100 or so completed. The optimist in me says that now that they've done a bunch that they can ship out a bunch at a time. The pessimist in me says that those ones built so far are not retail orders as 90% of the orders on here (even those placed in May/June) are still unscheduled.

deep breaths :D

This is the big question. I ordered on day one and only have an Unscheduled clean. faST has a vin # and a window sticker if it's not already built and awaiting shipment.

Ya but unfortunetly even though you may have been 1 of the first; clearly there is some order to building. might have to do with location of orders so they can send them in bunches across N/A. Or like Durp said they are stockpiling so they can release 1000+ all at the same time...N/A launch.

Maybe, someday, we will all understand this madness! Then again, maybe we won't care because we will all be driving our cars.

Don't like that theory at all.

To be honest, I've definitely wondered about that as well. I've heard of quite a few people with build dates of the 20th and 27th, so I wouldn't be too surprised. This would also explain the rumored two week delay they may be imposing on the shipping of the vehicles to the dealerships.

I think I will be able to justify all of this waiting if I still have my vehicle in hand by the end of this month. I keep telling myself, I've been waiting for this car for about 3 years, I can wait a few more weeks...problem is, it's been more like a year now, since I was originally told it would be out in 2012 :S
