  • 3400 finally!!!!

    Well, I've been waiting a loooooooong time to make this post. I have finally reached 3400 status with a TPW of 5/31. I do not know if that date was set before or after the shutdown this week, so I do not know if it will be pushed back a week or not. I've sent an email to my dealership to get the last 4 of my VIN, then I will know what date it will be built. But who cares if it is next week, or the week after, I'm at 3400 baby!!!!! I'm soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited.
    3000 Status on 3/1/2021. 3300 Status on 5/17/2021. 3400 Status on 5/24/2021. Will be built the morning of 6/14/21.
    3LT Red Mist HTC. Jet Black Interior w/Red stitching and Carbon Fiber Interior Trim. Carbon Flash Roof, Nacelles and Mirrors
    Front Lift. Spectra Gray Trident Wheels w/Edge Red Calipers. Chrome Exterior Badge Package. Midnight Silver with CF accent fender hash marks.
    Adding AGM Carbon Fiber 5VM package, High Wing Spoiler, Rear Diffuser, mirror caps, and front grill inserts.

    Maybe I'll check again this week, although the only real date now that matters is the delivery date. Everything else is just another stage of waiting and if they're not even building cars this week, what's the point..

      Way to rain on someone else’s happiness. That’s not the MECF spirit. If someone is happy learning that they made 186 cars yesterday even if they already have their C8, and that news makes them happy, that is good news in my book.

      BPSD, I am pleased your order is making progress. 3400 is one light year ahead of those whose orders who have not yet been picked up, are languishing at 1100 status. Here’s to your order making further advancement soon.

                  I question for the more educated/experienced. So I went 3400 on or before 5/24. Concierge told me TPW is next week, and my partial VIN had been assigned but can not give it to me, I need to get it from my dealer. Which I already knew. However, my salesmen, as of today, is still telling me that he does see 3400 and my TPW, but the VIN is not showing up in his system. He says it may take a while for it to update.

                  I'm not buying this. Is he looking in the wrong place? Can someone tell me to tell him where to look? Does his system really take a week+ to update? Keep in mind, I'm am only their 3rd C8 to be ordered (they are a small local shop).

                  Thanks.

                      I'm in the 3400 desert as well, the concierge gave me this status on May 11 but the TPW keeps getting moved due to plant shut downs. It will be soon...when they start building again. My dealer is frustrated as well.

                        It took the dealer long enough, but finally got my last 5 of VIN... My Car is going to be built on Monday June 14th. Only 4 more days... I guess that means it went on the assembly line today. Doesn't each car spend 3 days on the assembly line? 🤞 🤞🤞🤞🤞🤞🤞 it gets through QC fast.

                          10 to 11 hours on the line itself, though painting of body panels starts 4 days before that and a few sub-assembly components such as the instrument panel start the day before the body and chassis go down the line.

                            Congrats Those of us that are blessed to have our C8's will always remember being in that situation. That excitement will only grow as you continue to click on MECF every hour to continue to educate ourselves on the C8.

                              I will testify...it does happen! Concierge told me May 11th that my car was at 3400 but did not get built due to shutdown.
                              It appeared at the dealer June 1 and I was able to pick it up Friday.
                              I am looking for places to drive EVERY DAY!!
