    I waited 7 weeks for a VIN assignment (assigned on 4/6) and got a pretty low number (mid-8000s) considering the VINs currently being registered and assigned. Does this mean the vehicle is one rejected by another buyer? Should I be worried?

    There's no way to know for sure what a lower VIN means. It could be there was an issue with that vehicle in manufacturing that took a long time to resolve before it could be released. Or maybe even the number was really just assigned to a newly-produced vehicle.

    I took delivery of a 75xx a week ago while others around me were receiving 12xxx's. It does not go in sequence.

    I got assigned 68xx back when 11k was the highest VIN. MSM/Aero as well. My car is amazing.

    Ah, thanks for the info. Good to know others had a similar experience. I think the first thing I will do upon delivery is check the manufacture date on the door.

    In San Diego, there's an MSM, aero with VIN 85xx that's been sitting at the delivery center for a few weeks. Hope it's not that one.
