    Curious if VIN #s are consecutive or if there is some super secret formula. I configured my car on 7/27 and had a VIN one week later (57XXX). Wondering (like many of us) when my car was built. I have to assume with a 7 day turnaround it was finished a while ago. Regardless... happy to have a new member of the family.

    The driver side door jam has a sticker that will list the manufacture date. Guessing yours will either be June or July 2018.

    VINs are not assigned consecutively.

    I configured on 7/29 and have a 57XXX VIN that’s ready for delivery, as well. Other than color, same car as yours. Also in Los Angeles area. I guess we’re fraternal twins!
