It should be showing as an in-transit vehicle. If it doesn't show that flag, send me your details and I can trace it.
Technically, and I know you don't want hear this, it is not
a sold vehicle until you take posession of it. It is
a sold vehicle for production purposes and that does get you priority at the plant and ahead of all other order types.
Corporate does track sold vehicles and audits dealers regularly. If it is found that a dealer abuses the sold vehicle priority, they lose it (along with a lot of other things). This means dealers have a very good incentive to ensure you buy they vehicle that has been tagged with your name. If a sold vehicle tagged with your name isn't sold to you, there is a lot of explaining to do on the dealers part.
