    I can't help you with a serious answer, but I think it means you are more excited than you were yesterday!

    It means they are identifying and sourcing all the parts required to build your car. For example the seats, sound system, tires ...

    Those are all great questions. I'm currently in the same situation. Ask your Delivery Contact. The excitement is killing me. Sounds like you too.

    My delivery specialists give me vague pre determined read from a manual answers. That's why I was hoping for answers here.

    All he told me is mid September. How about you?

    I'm still in pre-production too from my March 70d order and expecting late September or early October delivery. To confuse you further, my vin is 117xx.

    Wow you're still in pre production from a march order? Does that mean those of us with recent orders probably won't get ours till later as well? My wife and I just preorders the X60D seven seater and they are saying delivery will be around that time too.. The excitement is killing me!!

    Yeah, I'm hoping I'm an anomaly, but also somewhat frustrated, as there are many reports in the August deliveries thread of X75's with similar (but not exact) configurations as mine that are taking delivery. What's worse is they have VINs that are higher or very near to mine, and about half of them ordered after me. I'm just hoping I get a special surprise AP hardware upgrade for my patience.

    It doesn't help that my DS is not being very useful in providing info - just the usual canned excuses. I'd like to elevate the matter, but I dont' think it's that far out of whack that I have a serious argument to make, yet....

    If it makes you feel any better, the delivery time for a Morgan (iconic British
    sportscar) used to be 7 years. They've got it down to about a year now.
    Admittedly, no robots are involved in their manufacture.
