Yup, at this point I've lost all hope for getting the car in the coming weeks.
Like what is the hold up? Too many cars? Too little cars that they want to batch it? Feel like we experiencing downside of the both.

It is literally 14 hrs away from the factory and it is going to take us 2 months for the transit time

I agree. What's the point of sending them out to the port after sitting on "Final Assembly" for a month, just to keep them at the port for two weeks. I wish we could get some answers.

Called genius, apparently there was an issue with an audio chip in my car during the production process (I'm assuming that's why it sat in "Final Assembly" for four weeks. It may have also affected your cars.) but otherwise they had no update, just said that its on its way to the port however she told me it would be going to Munich, Germany and eventually to Texas.

I don't think she has any idea what she was talking about and just reading off some sort of script.

I am hoping that somehow the car is actually already at the Galveston port and just needs to be updated lol.

I really hope she's wrong. We don't need them going to Germany and back here.

Thanks for calling them and updating us!

Audio chip problem is new, I called so many times no one can tell me why hahah.

Maybe that explains why my car sits in QA for two weeks then final assembly for another 5.

Dang, I was hoping they would be at the VPC already. Good progress though, hopefully they get them on the trucks by the end of the day. Has your CA given you an ETA?

Mine is at VPC too. They said the work order hasn't started yet meaning it hasn't done the quality check and etc.

I'm going to guess, I'll hear from my CA a week from now that the car is ready for pick up.

My CA said if all goes well at VPC, it'll be 3-4 days to dealer.

You might get yours sooner than me. I'm in DFW area.

I am really hoping to pick it up this weekend!

I hope your CA is right! Mine said a week to two weeks. I'm also hoping for this weekend, that would be great!

I was hoping it takes just a day 😂
But I think the timeline has been at least a few days.
