1. VON (Vehicle Order Number, assigned when an order is placed with dealer, sometimes same day, sometimes weeks later))
VIN (assigned several weeks after order is placed)
Did your salesman give you the VIN? Seems unusual to have a VIN so quickly based on when your order was placed.
I placed my order about a week before yours and am still in "pre-release," which I think is the same status you are in.
Not sure "D" is a category, but that is maybe what you mean by "pre-release".
In any case I don't think any of us (except for the one reported export case) have yet to hit D1. Once we hit D1 we get an expected delivery date!! Which looks fairly accurate based on other non-diesel builds.
Yes, my dealership's sales manager sent me a sheet with my order details and that included the VIN number. Got that 48 hours after I committed to the order. The form also showed my D status.
That info was validated when I checked it in VOTS.
