My car wasn't scheduled for production until November. I got an email from my salesman yesterday with a real live VIN. Apparently the factory is ahead of schedule???

This means I should have my car by Christmas. Happy, happy, joy, joy.

I was told some point in November. They really couldn't narrow it down for me. I was all set for the wait, so this was truly a wonderful surprise.

I wonder how well it will handle the snow...;) At least you'll have time to properly prep the paint come spring.

I woudn't put too much into getting a VIN number. The factory may be able to give you a VIN based on expected production, not what they are actually working on. Once you get "in-port" date you may begin to celebate. Then you have the "It's here!" phone call to wait for and then let the driving begin!

That's the serial number portion of the VIN. You call will be number 894 off the assembly line...

I know the last five are serial number, but what does anyone know how to translate the remaining portion of the VIN?
