Good question, especially since VIN will be visible through windshield for the world to see once you get your vehicle.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Will,
Since I have to fly to Houston to pick mine up, I have to make travel plans. I have a few days off starting in the 14th. I am hoping to fly out right after work on the 13th. Problem is that I need to know it is in the dealers lot before I make flight plans. What are your thoughts on mine making it to the dealer by the 11th, and no later than the 12th?

The oversize spout definitely fits properly into the SFU Fueling port (I am having imagery problems here that maybe Chiv can help clear up). Anyway, at least the large straight type works very well that I have found most common at the typical diesel stop. You can't go full throttle but you sure can fill up fast!!
This is the best news of the day for me. So very different from other NAFTA TDI's where Germans over-engineered the anti-dummy mechanisms in the filler neck so ONLY a 15/16" nozzle would fit. The tolerances there are so tight that many users complain that a nozzle that was a bit old and not perfectly round could not open the lock and they had to search for another pump with a better shaped nozzle. Thank you Jeep engineers for keeping this simple, and as always thanks Will. Can't wait to hear the Audi commercial "Nooooooooo" from an 18 wheeler rig driver

Great info, what I've been looking to hear about. Thanks!

I tend to live my life with the notion in mind of why give anyone information to facilitate a fraud and make it easy for them to get if you don't have to. Now the possibility I have in mind is someone creates a counterfeit to my car and uses my VIN number. Does it make any sense whatsoever, absolutely not. But on the same token, why put that information out there. I'm sure it can be used for insurance fraud as well in some way shape or form.

I just think it's never good to post any unique information about yourself or anything that you may own. Even if its very easy to actually get to in person, like the VIN posted on the windshield. Before I do anything I try to think of the worst possible situation and its easy enough to limit exposure by doing things like PM for stuff like that.

Yes I know its a stupid paranoid viewpoint and I have no problem walking outside my house or anything like that, but a little paranoia never hurt anyone.

1. Get a carfax report...
2. Possibly get a key made at a dealership...
3. Report the car stolen...?
4. Use your VIN instead to title a stolen car in a different state?

You also see people blurring their license plate numbers on pictures. Really no reason to be paranoid about this... but I tend to think there isn't a real reason TO expose it... so why would you?

We copied Chiv's VIN and made it look like his ride is sitting in Woodhaven yard in Detroit. In all reality, his was never made, and it's just a SFU

When I was born, I got to frolic in the yard and make friends with all the other 'corns. Sometimes people would come over and poke us, but it was a good time. It seemed like they were inspecting us for a long time but I got to play and zoom around each evening. I really didn't like getting poked in the DEF Tank. Now, most of my friends have left our field and I get to meet newborns. I do get lonely late at night, but I know that I too will leave to be with my forever family.

Re: 2014 diesel production

At some point could we get an update on the number of vehicles and their status. How many delivered, how many in transit and how many still stuck at JS?

I've been thinking (hoping) I would be out of JS by now but seem to be stuck there.

Which older M5? The E39 or the E60? I am quite familiar with the E39...i have one. It is a blast to drive...just doesnt do gravel farm roads worth a damn....which is where I go daily.

My ride is still D1 status with a delivery of 11/4. I saw one was built and shipped same day is that normal? Or is there no way I'm getting it Monday, my dealer is in Ann Arbor.

I'm wondering why does it take so long to ship out what is only two days of JNAP production worth of diesels? I'm sure part of it is that there are still new cars rolling off the line. But with millions of $$ sitting there I'd think they'd want to get those rolling so Jeep and their dealers can get paid. Sorry if I'm getting antsy now that we're getting so close after this long wait. Thx to Will, Milous, Chev and all the others who are putting in so much (unpaid) time to help feed our obsession.
