At a test drive last weekend Steve Brown told me that he was expecting 10 cars by october and then 6 per month after that.
I pointed out several spots to Steve during my demo drive. The hole over the Lotus badge was off center and the superior aspec was hung on the badge. Furthermore, the center piece of the chin spoiler was overlapped and peeling off. Steve mentioned that he'd point it out to the rep.ConeFusion said:He must have been busy calling people today! I got a call this morning, he needed to know if I wanted the Starshield or not. So it looks like things are moving.
BTW, for the people who saw the demo: Apparently the Lotus rep who was in last week was very unhappy with the Starshield installation on the demo, and they'll have somebody in to have it redone. It should look much better on the customer cars.
Reto, you and I HAVE got to stop trading spots. I think the early confusion was with counting the dealer demo in the allocation pipe.ConeFusion said:Thanks for posting the update. So I guess my call might come soon, I'm #19 (or 20, or 21, depending on how you count). It looks like they're on the predicted delivery schedule. I was kind of hoping that my car might arrive in early December or even late November, but it doesn't look like there will be a positive surprise.
So you think my friend, so you think.ConeFusion said:The only thing I know for sure is that I'm ahead of you!
That indeed would be very good. I'm also hoping that the weather is nice enough, i.e. no ice, sleet, rain, snow, that I can drive it home instead of trailering it.ConeFusion said:It would be kind of cool if our cars arrived at the same time.
It's nice to have more KC area people. As to Steve, he has been consistent and realistic on his projections. I fully agree with your attitude toward the delivery in our winter, with the weather blunting the fun times I feel more OK with not having my car.MikeRoberts44 said:
It looks like Steve's early statement of 10 by the end of October and 6 or 7 per month is still holding up, but Steve says it seems a bit slow to him. I am still hoping for January, but with Kansas City winters, February or March is fine.
