Hi everyone,
Looks like I'm the new guy. You know the one that knows nothing and thinks he's getting his car in two weeks, and doesn't know that he will be tied to this site until the day his car is delivered, probably in winter '06.

I've been reading all of your posts for the last couple of weeks and I've learned a lot. I now know what an image is to a dealer and that I really need one. I'm sure I'll have a ton of questions over the next few months and hope to get to know some of you!

Only 8000?

Ok, question #1
Have any of you heard that there were only 8000 to be produced this year? If so, does that mean that some of us that have recently made a deposit will not get a car at all. I was told by the dealer in Newport News, Va. that he had 80 people on his list and they would only get 7 cars this year. Has anyone else heard something similar?

The numbers we are all hearing is around 10,000 this year. Each dealer was allocated roughly 20 cars. That doesn't mean that some dealers won't be able to "buy" or "trade" with other dealers in remote areas. My dealership had 15 at least check on his list and the sister dealership had around 25. The people after 20 were told that they would not be getting one this year unless someone backed out or they were able to secure some extras.

Welcome to the site, but word of warning, this place makes you anxious to get the Sky in your hot little hands!:lol:

Being #9, you may get one of this years run and we are starting to see them trickle in to members, so, and I think I speak for everyone, we are all hoping the trickle turns into a flow and we can all be posting pictures of our new "baby"!!:thumbs:

Yes, our customer did indeed suffer a heart attack. Our thoughts and prayers are with him. Word of advice. PLEASE be patient, don't guess, assume, etc, about your number in line, or your production date. Things are playing out differently every day. We get images that we can or cannot make into a particular order. (see the other post about that) Just rest assured that we are doing everything in our power to work through our waiting list and get everyone their SKY. Heck I had to tell my own father that he had to go to the bottom of the list! And this after he agreed to pay for my wedding!!! :willy:
Cheers,
Jill

Also did you tell him there was a 5% Upcharge on the wedding and that you'd add a Champagne toast for only $10,000...?
All in all just another $17,553.64 in documentation, licensing and fees...

Hi Jill,
Why did your father have to be bumped down to the bottom?
Also, did you guys get your demo in yet? I would love to go back and actually sit in and maybe drive one.

Definite Noobie, he thinks he will be "tied" to the site ONLY until his car is delivered!

Forget it, this is HOTEL CALIFORNIA man!!! :willy: :D :willy:

"...you can check out, but you can never leave!..."
