Congratz....you are going to love it! Turn on the Opera music when you drive away from the dealer to set the mood. Nice color choice too.

Ordered mine on 9/12 & given a "Release for production" date of 12/14. Maybe with some luck, I'll have mine in a week or two? Sure hope so.

Bug your dealer! Keep them checking the status. Not sure if they actually get updates from VW or if they have to go search them out.

Here were my exact dates and production was just completed.

Order Status Production Stock (15) Status Date 11/16/2011 Requested Production Week 46/2011 11/14/2011 Demo In-Service
Assigned Production Week 50/2011 12/12/2011 Hold Information Actual Production Week 50/2011 12/12/2011

21 days from issuing of VIN until arrival at the farthest point from TN!

Hoping to pick it up next week if not sooner.

I ordered the same car on 11/4. I hope they did a huge batch of the same car. That is probably my only hope. Still betting on April.

They must have done a "Canadian" supply first as I orderd mine on November 8, 2011 . .went into production in early December and is now on it way to the Vancouver port. Should be here the week of February 6. Well, this is all according to the dealer of course. I never asked for a VIN but why make this up.

...no...you'r not (I actually thought you had given up, Tom!)

TomB, I hope you like the Amuhricanized Passat. I'm a very picky car guy, and I think the balance is perfect...size, handling, ride, price. Fit and finish is excellent. The added size is just what the American public wanted, w/o having to buy a much bigger, more expensive car. Plus, the MPG is simply outstanding. There's just nothing else in the market that matches it.

I'm sure you'll post when you've got your nervous, sweaty hands on the steering wheel. Good Luck!
