Hi Gang,

My Deep blue beauty has shipped and is expected by the weekend! Here is my timeline:Order and deposit on 5-3-05, Dealer order 6-24-05, Available to be scheduled 6-29-05, Scheduled 8-29-05, sequenced/broadcast 9-7-05, labels generated 9-13-05, Produced 9-14-05, Released to the carrier 9-19-05.

VIN#1G2MB33B96Y101353

Deep, Steel/Sand, Power locks, windows, mirrors, Keyless entry, Carpeted floormats, Air, Limited slip differential, Anti-lock brakes, Cruise control, Leather-wrapped 3-spoke steering wheel with CC/DIC controls, Monsoon 6 disk in-dash CD changer, and Fog lamps.

No XM, No Smoker's package (Bleah!)

My insurance agent quoted me $570/6 months. He said when I tuck it in for the winter, we can change the coverage for a cost reduction. What have you guys been quoted??

SolSister, congrats! :) your car is exactly what I ordered for the wife. Just got a quote last week from State Farm for her as primary, no work commute status: $423/6mo. We're in Dallas county. We're patiently waiting the call from the dealer that it's been released to production. They still haven't received their first 1K car. They got three 1K's and their next allocation was 7, we were supposed to be 4th in line.

Jester, is that $310/mo Canadian? Our big saving is she doesn't work, so it's classified as a "leisure" vehicle. And, we have discounts for 4 cars (2 kids in college) and homeowners.

If you're under 25, that's probably the biggest difference. It's incredible the risk premium under 25 males pay although they deserve it most cases!

HOLY CRAP that's expensive? How old are you?

I mean, sure that's like $250 US a month... but that's still almost $3000 a year.

I got 290/mo with ING Direct. Give them a call, I'm 23 so you'd probably get a better rate then that!

Sometimes going through a Broker helps. Not only do they find you the best rate but they know how to manipulate the forms to be able to get you an even better rate.

Sure - they aren't color-batching post 1K

Mine is deep as well. 101409, built on/about 14 Sep (MAYBE on the 15th).
What was that about no color-batching after the first 1K orders are done? :rolleyes:

My dealer has no idea what is going on with my car as of right now. I made an order and put down a deposit on 4/20, so I can assume it will be coming soon since cars ordered later are being filled?

Don't count on it being there Friday I think your dealer is confusing availabe to ship with shipped. I was told the zz,fm,and some first allocations aren't going out untill October, but check back at the last few days of Sept. in case they go out a little early. They have to ship the first 1000
first what few of them are left.

When a non-1/1000 gets there before a 1/1000 you better get ready for :cuss: :rant: :cuss:
and you can take that to the bank. :cool:

Of course. That seems inevitible. Be prepared to hear things like "they aren't breaking any promises. The first 1,000 were the first 1,000 built for retail sale just as promised. There was never any mention of them necessarily being the first 1,000 delivered." Or something of that nature.

It's kind of like when there was all sorts of :cuss: :rant: :cuss: on A-day (15 April, 2005 - a day that will go down in infamy) from those of us who didn't make the cut. We all got to read things like "It doesn't matter if you have had a deposit down for months or years, that's not how the system was set up to work. The server dealt you a bad hand... tough."

Yeah, you'll read something like that in response to the rants. But go ahead and rant, and cry on our shoulders. You'll find that most members here will still feel for you. :cool:

Edit: Not necessarily directed at you, SATCH. I know are in both camps (you had your deposit down well before the EOP scam was devised/announced). After re-reading this, it almost sounds like a flame.

The forum will be a shoulder to cry on if/when some of the remaining first 1K customers are still in limbo when regular allocation deliveries start popping up.
