In Reply to: FrankR, anyone...Status "122" posted by jimheisler on March 06, 1999 at 18:56:56:
Jim, ask for a printout of current status - always available. keeps changing, first at 111, then 122 or was it 112 (I forget but check my archives - if you are really desperate I will check my records)and then 150 (being built - prod started etc.) - did not check later updates but they sure were there - I just did not have time to call but my dealer kept giving me status updates by checking his daily printout. yes it is a daily printout.
Cheers. And dont let the chaps jerk you or sell your car to someone else. they did that to some other poor soul on this board who was lucky enough to get the exact same car elsewhere.
: I was looking through the archives and noticed you were notified on or before december 28 that your car was status "122". I ordered my car on jan. 23 and was told it would be built in the first week of february. So I called the dealer on feb. 10 to check the status. He said we missed that cycle, I didn't think anything of it, it happens. He said it was scheduled for first week of march. I just called him today and now he said it was scheduled to be built next week. I asked him to fax me some kind of comfirmation from Germany that they recieved my order and it was scheduled for next week. I asked for the "page from the allocation list with my car, my name, estimated production date..."(he said he knew what I was describing). He said he didn't have it yet, it just pops up one day after it's built(on his computer?;out of his fax machine?). Is this right? Or am I still waiting on status "122"(parts are confirmed and no changes to options)?
: I feel like I'm being jerked around, but I can't catch him in a lie.
: I have no production number on the "motor vehicle purchase agreement" and no dates are explicitly stated.
: Should I give him 10 more days then ask for either something in writing(confirmation from Germany with a procuction date) or my deposit? Give him an ultimatum(spelling?).
: Any thoughts?
: Thanks in advance,
