    Re: Ordering a V wagon

    So to clarify - production of Gen II Coupes & Wagons will continue (on order only basis) thru 2014 while they launch the new body style sedan?

    That Stealth Blue on the Wagaon is mighty tempting. Congrats on the order, can't wait to see pics.

    I believe the V2 Coupes and Wagons will be orderable and available on lots as they have a few new standard colors for 2014.

    The stealth blue is/was an order only color. Dealers cannot order them for their inventory. I am not sure how long they are/were taking orders for stealth blue. Plenty of pictures, I promise.

    Wow! Awesome! I haven't heard @#$! about my Vagon, so you might beat us all to the dealer to pick up your new car!

    Please post photos as SOON as you get into the driveway, I really want to see the SB in natural light.

    Re: Ordering a V wagon

    I don't want it to show up too early! It will sit at the dealer until I get back in six weeks. Maybe they can keep it somewhere tucked away indoors while I'm gone (not showroom floor). I'm exploring options for tinting it and the dealer has already quoted $245. I also want to clearbra it, so that could potentially be coordinated through the dealer if they don't offer the service themselves.

    I will ask them to take pictures of when it arrives, and there will be plenty of pictures in natural light once I see it in person.
    I also have to make a decision on whether to tell the dealer to skip pre-delivery inspection. Any recommendations in regards to that?

    Tim:

    I don't know if Tennessee requires a front license plate, but make sure they do NOT drill holes in your front bumper.

    From the pics of your Sedan, it looks like no front plate is necessary in TN.

    Re: Ordering a V wagon

    Tell them they can put it on the showroom floor -- as long as there's a velvet rope around it and no one can actually touch it.

    Have them set up a webcam and we'll all watch it for you.

    But seriously... don't you open yourself up to warranty claim hassles if you decline pre-delivery inspection? It might make more sense to provide a specific list of "don'ts" so they can inspect but not mess anything up too much. Like "don't install the front plate mount." It'd be tempting to say "don't polish the car" but then you could be screwed if there are issues with the paint (that would have been deemed fixed if you'd let them do their job). I've got more time than you do to think about this, but I look forward to others' advice here.

    Re: Ordering a V wagon

    There is no front license plate required in TN. THANK YOU Tennessee.

    I trust this dealer pretty well. They all seem to take their job seriously, and they must as they are located in a wealthy suburb of Nashville. My salesman is top notch. I think I'll allow the PDI but give it a very thorough going over when I see it for the first time. After owning a V, it will make it easier to walk around the car and know what things should more or less look like.

    I know exactly the dealership your talking about. I may have to go take a look at it whenever it comes in. Congrats.

    7-10 days typically unless there's a burp in the system (positive or negative).
