Hi there! Long time lurker, first time poster. I originally ordered my i4 eDrive40 sometime in July or August of last year, it's hard to remember now. Probably was earlier than that.
Ran into all of the woes expressed here, parts shortages and delays. But I stuck to my dream build, because dammit if I'm shelling out this much for a new car, I want it to be PERFECT!
And then...in February it almost seemed too good to be true. Scheduled for production, was I hallucinating??
Alas, as many of you have experienced, my baby hung in that status for over a month. Once production began, it was a whirlwind! Refresh in the morning, exterior body assembly begins. Refresh after work, paint booth!!
Before I knew it, she was heading to the port. Not two weeks later, in transit!! But wait, what's that? Back at the port the next day? Hm. Quite the speedrun across the Atlantic.
Yet another long month and a half after the false start, success! My sales rep confirmed -- she's arriving on the Hawaiian Highway! Thank goodness for all the posts about how to track a cargo ship like a stalker. Which, speaking of, the ship is now moored at Brunswick, where my car will be unloaded and sent to the PCD.
Boring finance stuff out of the way, and all I'm waiting for now is that exciting email to set up a date. Can't wait to finally have my hands on a car with range!!
...because yes, my username is a nod to my current vehicle. I've cherished my time with my 2013 Leaf, but now it's time to upgrade. Goodbye, frog car. You converted me to the EV life.
Can't wait to see you all on the road! And nerd out about this amazing vehicle in the meantime
