The V is finally here. Got a call from the dealer this afternoon.Ready for Thursday P.U. The V was built Dec 22/08 and invoiced on the 23.
Apparently due to the C $ dropping again we missed a big price increase
that came into effect Jan 1/09.
The V is Black and a full load
The weather has been sunny and mid 40's so it'll be decent cruising weather.
Can't wait. Now I can park the 06 Z for a couple of days.

Thanks for that - I ordered 12/09, but it never made it to production before they shut down. The plant will re-open 2/09, so, hopefully they will get right to it soon afterwards.

Anyway - how do you like your V2 so far? Any pics ... ??

It couldn't have been built on 12/22/08. It was most likely built the week of 12/15/08, invoiced after it was built and shipped on 12/22 or 12/23.

The factory shut down at the close of business day on 12/19/08.

Picked up the V yesterday. Awsome car. More later.
By the way for the Canadians on the Board the Price is just under $ 81,000
out the door, for all available options. The Recaros are great.
