I will post video and still pictures when she arrives. However no launch control videos until she's broken in. I plan on keeping this car 10 years minimum so I'm gonna take car of her. It's gonna be hard to be restrained on that issue, but I'm going to do my best.

I have a seat mounted video camera holder, I will take video of my first drive and the drive back from the dealer along with still pics.

Yes I was slotted for week 10 production.

I haven't searched this question yet, but does anyone know if the VIN numbers are sequential?

Hopefully, Fifth will get his VIN today, he was scheduled for week 10 production as well.

No the VIN #'s aren't sequential but they are pretty close... I think that the last digits refer to each region. I went into production the same day as someone else but our vins were similar until the last four digits.

I still have a little wait. My dealer seems to be taking a little longer than expected. But that's ok I waited this long I'll wait a little longer.

Yeah...it's gonna be nice when they roll off the production line and right onto a ship the next day.



I wish. Now the real headache is gonna start. I can already forsee how many times a day I'm gonna be on OC and the shipping company's website in the coming 3-4 weeks.

Fifth - I can't beleive we have sequential serial numbers. How wild is that? We'll have to take pics when we get together in April.

If we all get together we can charter a plane to fly our cars to the states next weekend after production is finished we could split the cost three ways. I'm sure that would be cheap.

Who's in?

Gasman, is only 13/14 behind us.
