Do either of you know what your estimated build week was when you ordered?

I think I ordered mine on the 15th August, and the build week was 39 (next week), so with only being a day after I'm wondering if they are ahead of schedule?

Fingers crossed I'll be receiving a call sooner than expected then :)

I did make a few changes since the original order though which may have impacted mine, but the date never changed on the system so I'm hoping they didn't!

Mine took 8 weeks from ordering to delivery at my dealership. It arrived 1 day before we left om vacation so I decided to pick the car up upon my return...longest vacation of my life :)

Can't remember being this impatient with my previous cars.

I was never told my build week actually but when i ordered the car they said that they would make the estimated arrival date 1/9/15 so if there was an early build slot they would make my car priority. I don't know if it made a difference but thats what they said. My car will either be ready to pick up on Sunday or some time next week but i haven't even picked the reg yet lol
