Dealer just email me the vin no: SBM11AAA6CW000849.
It's in production and it should arrive at the dealer no later than the end of March... 50 more days for me...

Mine is 833 and is pretty much 2/3rds built but will be another two weeks. It's getting there after a long wait! I think I saw 849 yesterday.....yellow paint with red leather seats and purple dash:D

Ooh, Ooh!
Dealer just told me that mine is in the US sitting in Baltimore. delivery scheduled for Feb 20th! It just needs dealer inspection and prep plus I've asked them to do a clear bra on the front. looks like I' ll make the Motorsports Ranch track day on April 1st and Big Bend Open Road race on the 27th!

Yellow? I would like to see that!
There was a lemon yellow paint special in the MPC yesterday. It did not 'work' for me, but a butter yellow would.

I saw a snot green Evoke today and that looked OK but not right if you know what I mean. The middle age lady driving it looked very proud so it worked for her!

I had them do a clear bra on mine through Park Place, and they did a great job! You will be pleased.

How much does a clear bra cover, language is a mystery at times:D
You can do as much, or little as you want. I did the front and splitter, hood, lights, front fenders, mirrors and side intakes. Basically everything from the start of the front door, forward.

Wish I had some sage advice. 17 days in a row I've driven it. To work every day. Early morning drives on the weekend. The car continues to amaze me with its breadth of abilities. It's like it has created its own market segment. Snowing now so my streak might end tomorrow. Not sure I'll survive!

I feel your pain!
Mine arrived NYC last Tuesday, should be in CA a week from now, delivery expected Feb. 22 after clear bra and radar detector installation. The latter was deemed very necessary after reading all of the current owners' law-breaking exploits! :D

No cameras allowed in the MPC. They took some pictures of me and my car but they have an anti upload software embedded so can't share.

Not that I am suggesting you subvert their content control methods since it was cool of them to take those shots. However, as an FYI, on a PC you should be able to take a screenshot of any image visible on your monitor using the Print Screen function. Then you can paste the captured pixels into an image editing program like Photoshop, or even a simple one like MSPaint, and save it as a separate file without carrying over any embedded restrictions. There might be one or two exceptions that I've not encountered, but it is true for nearly everything that is viewable on your monitor.

If you're on a Mac it's been a while since I've had to fuss with one and don't know how to perform the similar steps, but it is probably still possible.

None to give!!! Only not driven it on a daily basis when ive been on holiday,even then ive had to take my computer so i can see how you guys are getting on!!
Driven it in the snow now,just have to watch the right foot and ground clearance or you become a suragate snowplough,i think its a bit mad but i had to try it on some quiet roads,that is untill i passed a few cars in a ditch and thought i had better leave it in the garage the next day,that was thursday,but out in it today as the roads are -15 but dry.Im sure the turbos give more power at these temperatures but im sure you wouldnt want me to find out:eek:

It is really too bad they are not a bit more open.

I have been told they check this site daily but are not allowed to post. Big missed opportunity to converse directly with owners and owners to be.

Boxer, give them a call and have a chat. Ron is very chatty, well sort of. His team are open to any suggestion as long as it does not involve Fezza Red as an option!

ps solved the picture upload by use of the clip tool and save function.
