Yes, my dealer said my car is built and was waiting on a part. That was a while ago. I hope it's on the ship by now. But who knows. I only know what they tell me. I think it was also established that color has little to do with the schedule of when cars will be delivered as cars are being built to order.nxm150 said:Derek, you previously stated your car was complete and waiting on the missing part. I guess this means that BRP is one of the first colors used? The other being SY?

PostJust thought I'd add my 2 cents!
I was at the factory about a month ago. The body panels were lined up against a wall and not in any way grouped according to color. Annette Lancaster said the cars are built to a specific order and would not be grouped in colors (unless there were say three yellow cars with one other color in between). They paint the body panels in paint booths by hand like at your local body shop so there is very little time saved if they group them. Each car has a specific order number from the very start. Body panels received are fitted to a master jig to be sure they fit, sanded. primed and painted. Yes the body finishing takes a good bit of the entire time at the factory because it is done by hand. Really the rest of the car is assembled like a kit from parts that are manufactured elsewhere.

Man, that's like being on a 3 month waiting list for saltine crackers!ivan1 said:Imagine what this poor guy is going through :

I take it that means you didn't want the '04 Prius? My buddy at work has been on the list for over nine months, waiting for one fully loaded.zvezdah1 said:walked right into the dealer last year and bought my wifes Prius, no wait, couldn't have taken waiting on two cars
