Re: Factory orders

Not only are they on web sites as available, the dealerships will use them as test drive vehicles if not directed otherwise.

Scummy dealers will do that.

Any decent dealer will put it aside.

Actually you are correct. My factory order was an early 12/13 delivery.
With the full tech package. Basically everything except the sun roof and amp speaker system. They used it for all the salespeople to test the systems, especially the self parking. They had almost 40 miles on it. But actually it was not a big deal because I had to drive it 300 miles back home and it eliminated the first most restrictive(40-50 miles) break in requirements.
I would guess then the only thing preventing the vehicle from being sold is the window sticker that will have your "custom build" and your name on it. I suppose it would be possible to sell it before you get it if the dealer was a sleep at the wheel. The dealer still owns that vehicle till you sign on the dotted line. But there must be a dealer restriction on that vehicle as a screw up could be a big issue for the dealer.

In July/August, 2014 there was a build stoppage of all KLs that included the tech package. Buyers were getting real impatient waiting for their vehicle to be built/delivered. One guy went to pick up his ordered vehicle and the dealership couldn't find it. Had to reorder and wait again. Dealer played the dumb mistake card. Some of us thought someone slid some money over the table and stole the dudes build.
