Try this one, I put my deposit with Star Motors in November of 2001 and expect my car in late July early August, that would be 3 years and 8 months!

Actually 2 years 8 month, but I'll bet it feels closer to 3yr.8mo.

I think I'm somewhere around 80 at FVMC. I was roughly 120 at one point.

I've gotten flamed before for saying it, but I'll do it agian anyway - I'm impressed with the way FVMC is handling their customers, I have no complaints and I feel like they are "taking care" of me. I'd rather be in the high numbers with FVMC than low to middle with other dealers I've been reading about. If I was placing an order today, I'd go back to FVMC without hesitation. They are a high volume dealer (if not the highest in Esprit sales), so I expect to have my car before the driving season begins next year. This year would be a bit optimistic after the recent push backs.

It's worth the wait for me, no complaints.

Did they have a lot of people drop off the list?
Yes.

And so far I agree with Reddirt, FVMC has been a pleasure to deal with.

I wanted to order one when the S1 came out in '96. I was one of the people trying to get Arnie to take a deposit at the '98 LOG. My deposit has been "down" since January '02.

Does that count?

I HONNESTLY don't want to sound like a loud mouth kid, but since I'm 15 and I have my entire education ahead of me, it looks like I won't be seeing my Elise for more than 10 years. Driver's license, then finishing university, then saving up... :( I can't wait!!!

Officially, I've been waiting since Feb '03 (#32 @ SYmbolic means I'll probably not see my car until end of this year, beginning of next)... HOWEVER.. I was researching bringing in a gray market Elise for about 5 months or so before that, so let's count that too... oh, and my girlfriend at the time spotted one when she was in the UK in 99 & I wanted it then, so... let's count that too. ;)
