I ordered mine 10 days before you from (probably) the same dealer and haven't received my vehicle yet -- bummer!

Guessing they're re-jiggering predetermined build slots.

Congrats on your new car. I'll keep an eye out for you on the road. Haven't seen one in the area yet.

Contests. Really jealous!! Can't see pic yet prob need to find myself a LAN to connect. If you get chance for more pics that would be good. Does black seats look good?? Also give for that option and was worried as all discussions so far have suggested oyster/beige.

kmarei,

Congrats on your new addition. Hope it was a painless birth. Since the "after dark" photo is the first "baby" pic you have, I ran it through Photoshop for a little (actually very little) enhancement:

Your commute was worse than mine -- 6 hrs. Didn't run out of gas, but got the rental car stuck in the snow in the parking lot. Embarrassing. Over the 6 hrs I saw 2 snow plows. Toll road was blocked at Reston Parkway for at least two hours. Nothing in the traffic reports. Something went way wrong today.

Hope they're able to clean it up well enough over night and you get the day to check out the car tomorrow!

So, they told me production week of 24 January -- mine must be at the tail end of the week! Dang.
