step by step production help!

Ive been reading many different posts regarding orders on this forum. here is my date by date status so far, can anyone tell me if this is progressing faster than most? or is it about the same? I'm at that stage where I cannot wait no more!...

2/16-placed order
2/17-got prodcution #
2/20-begin prodcution
2/24- in "body shop"
2/25- in "paint shop"
2/28- "released to a carrier and is awaiting transportation"
3/1- "in transit to port of exit"

so, my question again..am i getting lucky as far as the speed this is happening or is this normal?...ANY input is appreciated, thanks guys

Sounds about normal Looks like your dealer got you into a matured 112 status slot (that quickly turned to 150 status). Now the long wait to hitch a ride on a states-bound ship. This is where luck would come in. I was able to be loaded within 3 days of arrival at port... Good Luck.

yeah, this seems pretty normal to me too. it may seem fast but it isn't really. i placed my order on 11/4 and my car was on the ship at the beginning of december and arrived to the dealership on 12/16. and that was during holidays! but there are some people that had to wait for 4 months because of unavailability of a certain option they'd ordered.

as KL2DC said, the worst part is still ahead of you because for the next 2 weeks or so, you'll hear absolutely nothing new from the 800# as you car will be "swimming" over here...

good luck!

My production started Feb. 22nd, and as of today March 2nd, my car is being transported to port of Exit.
I thought I'd be waiting longer than this.
BUT I'm not complaining.
