Has anybody given you the working definition of "soon" in this case? I hate to hassle these guys, but I'm guessing that their last estimate that my car would be here in August (i.e. right now) could be off by six months or more.Ground Loop said:Any specific questions are met with "we'll know more soon".
Nope. It's always some point in the near future, usually "30 days" or so. I'm beyond frustrated at the endless stalling and lack of information.andykeck said:Has anybody given you the working definition of "soon" in this case?
I wouldn't blame it on elves, troll, or hobbits. I'd blame it on the Scapegoats.zvezdah1 said:Well, Ground you don't have to buy it, and I guess you want someone to blame, so by all means blame LCU, the dealer, Lotus UK, GOD, the elves, the hobbits.........
http://www.elisetalk.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&postid=80139#post80139I am #13 at HRM (no LSS), got an e-mail today that my car is in port. I have had my VIN for a few weeks now, and had my order/production # before that, having been told when my car was on the assembly line...Although I got somewhat impatient (and maybe a little paranoid) from the time I found out my car was being built until finding out it was here today(can't blame them for that delay),
tahoemark said:I just got off the phone with Gary Hagan who is the West Coast Sales rep. He is on the road right now and couldn't give me a status check on my car #11 at Desert European. However, he did explain that Lotus USA had requested cars to be built in order of deposit, so that the dealers would get them in order of deposit. However, Hethel can't build one red car, one yellow car etc. So because of the batching of colors the cars may not come out in exact order of deposit. The other thing he said was they had had reliability problems with the wheels on the sport pack and initial orders with sport pack were delayed about 45 days. That problem has been resolved but the early orders are obviously delayed.
I also talked to Pat Marsh at Desert European and he still doesn't have any cars but is expecting the first 3 within 72 hours(their demo plus two others). Gary confrimed this information about Desert European. I will be talking to Gary again on Friday and will report to all any info I find out. Bottom line folks this is all part of growing pains going from 150 cars a year to 2200 cars thats about a 15 fold increase. If I did that with my business I would be buried!!!!
