Default Dare I get excited?

I received the automated email just now that my car has gone into production. It is a Q5 prestige with DAP, cold and warm weather. With all of the delays I am almost afraid to get too excited. September 1 has been its factory completion date for over two months now. Can I trust the email or is it just automated and has no relevance to the actual production?

Keep your fingers crossed! Mine arrived exactly 1 month after it's prod finish date!

I can hope. I hope it is here when I get home from Colorado the first week of October.

Interesting so it sounds like it really is in production. Hopefully some of these folks who have been waiting so long can get theirs finished soon.

Have a great trip here! Supposedly due to the wet summer it is supposed to be a good fall for the aspens. You will LOVE the azores...we have had a ton of compliments on it.

All I gotta say is that this "just-in-time parts" methodology really sucks for some of us. Obviously production is moving and with 20" wheels, but some of us that have been waiting longer were sequenced behind some that required less parts I would assume.

I got an email just a while back that my Audi has gone into production.

Production date was 8/27 (ETA)

I agree there seems to be a real problem and I feel really bad for those who had their cars get stuck in the line. If my car were delayed by weeks/months I would be pretty unhappy. Still could happen to mine for that matter. It is not on the boat yet.

The port of Houston opens tomorrow. That's important because the next ship due to arrive in Veracruz has been waiting to get into Houston.
