My M3LR is set for early Nov delivery so is likely on Talia. I found my VIN in source code about 6 days after Talia sailed. Even if it's not Talia it still must have been on it's way on another ship before the VIN was allocated.I'm pretty sure the last batch of VINs were from Talia (if talia is the ship) and that was well on its way to Suez prior to any VINS being allocated. If any of the ships Mr M is tracking are correct we should probably see a bunch of VINs being issued late this week early next week I think. This is all just guess work on my behalf and from reading other threads. Some people are saying VINs are issued upon being loaded onto the ship but that is not what we have seen recently. I ordered 1st October White/black M3LR and have had nothing through yet.
Incidentally, I still don't see my VIN in my account even though I've known it for 10 days and collection has been scheduled since Friday. Bottom line is don't just wait for the text - make sure you check source code for it regularly.
