Maybe so...I seem to speak to the same guy everytime I call. I asked him what my estimated date for production was and he said it is now confirmed for Week 10. He never said it was status 112, but I asked again, "so it is confirmed for Week 10" and he said, "yes, the first full week of March". So, assuming he's not an idiot, things look good for now.

Thanks ... the only thing now is, I've got less time to sort out the interior colour. Right now I'm extended black ... but I'm tempted to go fox red ... but not extended as the red on the dash is overkill for me. Decisions, decisions ... Time to go and look at the official fox red thread again ;-)

My idea on Fox, which I've posted elsewhere, is to replace just the console piece with the red one (I have the part no.) after delivery, giving a semi-extended look without the red on the dash. So far, parts says there is no pricing on that piece.

Thanks Greg. yes, I have being following along with that thread. Sounds like a good idea to me ... although if I go fox red, i might decide to go console in black leather and lower half dash in black leather .. .although that could start to get very pricey indeed.

111 is on order with a fairly loose production target. 112 is on order with a production target that can change. 150 is on order with a confirmed production target, which means they are gathering parts for your car, and production will start in a few days. The automated system will not differentiate between 111 and 112. You need to speak with someone and ask them to tell you what the current production target is. Some of them say they can't release that info, others are more than happy to tell you what it is.

This is defintely true. I have been Status 112 since January 30. First production estimate was Week 9 (next week). I called today and now I'm week 15. My CA is trying to understand the push. I did order the 19's (on sedan), but supposedly, my order was in before the cut-off for delays. I'll be interested to see what he comes up with.

Wow...that sucks. My CA checked the system today and I'm 112 scheduled for Week 10. I hope it sticks.

Did you order DCT? That's the other bottleneck it seems. Also, maybe there are sedan specific scheduling issues.

No DCT. I've been following the threads, and the only thing I could assume is the 19" wheels. The delay really came out of no where to me since I've been at week 9 for several weeks. We'll see what they say.

That's odd indeed. Good luck.
