S'up y'all. I've finally caught up on my daily message in the 11/12 thread. Nice activity. Here's some replies, comments and questions to you all.

Why, yes it is! Exciting, isn't it! I feel bad for Mr. Lio Martinez. There's gotta be something special about his delay that is goodness.

Does getting a VIN mean 3800 status?

Yes! Got up and checked status ASAP, had cereal, coffee, wrote out my agenda for both meetings. Rocked it! Finally on home computer time now! Long day. Did get a workout in at least though.

Let's hope for one more day. Would you like me to write to Becky again this evening or do you want to go at it alone. I'm happy to do it. I wouldn't blame you if you wanted to change "dealers" (ie - like in Vegas, baby!).

Lio, I ordered my plates a few weeks back. Just go onto dmv.ca.gov. As you can imagine, all the 1LE plates were taken. I got one with another RPO added to it. :-)

Do you think dealers get stuff wrong? No way! They aren't going to wash your car or put gas in it are they?

How long did it take to go from 4B00 to 4200?
What was your VIN date?
What was your TPW?

So your VIN date was 11/17, TPW 11/12. That's about three days to get wrapped. Did the status code change at that time? I see you're 4300 now.

I think Becky's said the hard part isn't getting out of 1100 or getting the VIN ... it's getting the shipment! ;-)

So, that's VIN/3800 on 11/14 and Bayed/4B00 on 11/20 or ~5-6 days. Any clue how long it takes before it's 4200?

I was grumpy because I was stuck between BRM and CRT, and the fact that CRT pics took awhile to surface in 1LE trim. Now I'm happy =p

1. Great email. Ballsy but necessary.
2. What do you mean by "..all the problems behind me."?

What's the first song I should play in the 1LE (after getting off on the engine, exhaust and gears)?

I might have to take a day off work and drive up to San Francisco and across the bridge into Marin county, the coast and wherever the roads take me!

1. Breaks (Black Keys) https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/th...up/id279535830
2. Anthem (Rush) https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/fl...stered/id50543

Part of the GM buyback was that I had to return to the dealership that ruined my vert.

Got clay. I clayed by S4 in 2001 when it arrived and will always clay every car I own for now on. No better way to get it pure.

Thanks for this video on the mirror adjusting. I've been doing it wrong.

I have to say that shuffle steering is for the birds. You a'int gonna see me driving the 1LE that way. I made a reply on that thread.
