Help. Placed order and I'M TOO EXCITED


Hey guys, just went through spreadsheet and saw that we are all from California with LR AWD orders. So just curious if you guys have gotten VIN yet or anything. Since we're in very similar boat, would be nice to hear latest updates.

I don't know what's going on with mine. My delivery estimate was removed days ago and hasn't come back. So I'm completely in the dark. Just hoping for VIN real soon!


I don’t have a VIN yet, but I got a text about 1.5 weeks ago saying that my delivery estimate was moved up to 12/1 - 12/22. It still shows 12/8 - 12/29 on my order/reservation page, which is what it’s showed since I placed my order (on 10/21). My configuration is the LR with blue exterior and black interior. I have seen people in CA who ordered a few days before me getting VINs and potentially even delivery dates, though, so I am hoping to get an update soon.
No cure, may be terminal. Best of luck.

Jesus Christ this was painful to read. I am the embodiment of your post. I feel dirty - should I?
