My build sheet has 7H8 (Assist/BT/USB) included but listed as N/C -- this option isn't listed on the website as one of my selected options. It's probably worth giving my CA a call ... as if I haven't bothered him enough already.
Congrats on the 150, which is a pretty good milestone.

Yeah, I think you're correct that the the website may not reflect your actual options. It wouldn't hurt to contact your CA just to verify one last time.

I have week 39 build slot. My build status just updated to "in production" on the website. All options correctly listed on the website. 1-800 has not updated yet. More evidence of U.S. production vehicles getting bumped up a week or so?

Sweet. You can get the VIN from your CA now. Don't forget to post it in the registry sticky.

I just found out I'm week 40 production (week of 10/3). The 800-number and website still haven't updated, though. ED scheduled for 10/20! This keeps getting better and better...

That's great news. You may be one of the last EDs for US prod 1Ms.

Just checked the 1800 and it finally updated. The recording said, "Vehicle is currently in prod w/ an est completion date of 26 Sep".

Just checked in with CA to pickup some 1M posters, and had him check status for me. Well I am a week 40 production build, and now it is at 150 status today. So production is ahead of schedule. Things are getting better every day!

Another big update. I spoke to my CA and the vehicle entered status 153 (assembly started) this morning and now it shows status 155 (production completed).

My PCD is 11/28, so I hope things slow down a little . Like always, the website and 1800 are behind.

Nice!

I'm a week 39 and the hotline is still stalled at no confirmed production date and the website is still hung at production begins.

I wonder if the relative numerical values of the production numbers and VINs have any relevance when it comes to what order cars roll off the production line?

UPDATE: Called CA. 155 status.

1-800 number has been worthless unless you talk to a human. Mine is supposed to hit status 155 on 9/28.

It's hit-or-miss for sure. However imagine my surprise today when the daily 800 call yielded: "production complete, awaiting release to carrier."

My dad's car just moved into production 150 status today! So should be trailing right behind you guys. Unfortunately we are delivering it at PCD on December 5 so we will have to wait and extra week or so for pickup But the PCD should be worth it!

Great news. Mine was released to carrier, but awaiting transportation to the port of exit. I hope it slows down quite a bit, since my PCD is 11/28.

I'm now at the port awaiting a shipping vessel. This thing needs to slow down some.

My car has also been released to the carrier and headed to Bremerhaven.

The port of entry for my car will be Port Hueneme (Oxnard, CA). I suspect dominoM and I will be sharing the same ship (I assume vehicles headed to Colorado would go through the west coast). Anybody else west coast bound?

Time to start looking at shipping schedules and marine tracking websites.
