Found out through dealer and Natasha..ETIS is only good for confirming the car is built and what features it has

Just got back from having a peek, and it has floor mats.
Taking delivery tomorrow pm.
I ordered mine on the 10th and the dealer has yet to give me a VIN even. I hope everything is further along that I imagine.

Ordered a Titanium hatch with everything but handling pkg and sunroof on 9/29/11.
Recieved Vin# with build date of 10/25 and delivery date of 11/7 on 10/14. Will pick up on 11/8 How's that for efficiency.

I got my VIN today. The dealer said I should receive my car on the 28th. I'm so relieved to have SOME information.

Hard to say. My car was built 10/13 and it still hasn't shipped. Others have been waiting even longer between build and ship. On the other hand, others have recently reported less than 2 weeks from built to deliver, with shipment via rail. Seems like you won't really know until it's actually in transit.

How do you know when it is in transit? Built on 11/2 and was on ESTIS 11/6.

I'm counting on my dealer letting me know.

Beyond seeing the data from the window sticker and in ETIS, I don't have access to status. My sales rep had been checking status a couple times a week prior to build, and then every day after build. I would guess that he's not doing that any more since there has been no change for so long, but since he's been good about keeping me updated, I'm sure he'll let me know as soon as he does see a change.
