Re: Got my VIN, build date is crazy

Does this mean Magneto's birthday is tomorrow?

This is what's on the window sticker (above the BLEND):

The dealer told me my build date was June......

Re: Been following, about to purchase!

I wanted to offer a thanks to everyone on the forum for information. I've been stalking this forum for a bit gathering information while considering purchasing a FFE. Anyhow, I'm pulling the trigger on an Oxford White that's arriving at the dealer any day now. I wanted red without leather, but the ...

Re: Installing my Level 2 Charger this weekend

Yesterday I purchased the GE Wallstation 30 Amp Plug-In charger, model number EVW SWBC-CP01 from Lowes (paid about $425, they had it 25% off of the regular price of $629, plus I used a coupon I found on the Internet to take an additional $50 off). Curious. Lowe's website has this at $799. Was this ...

Re: Got my VIN, build date is crazy

I got my VIN last week, however I can't pull up my window sticker.

How long does it take for the window sticker to populate?

Thanks!

Re: Really need a charging station?

That's the thing. It doesn't look like the "do it yourself" ones really save anything.

Bottom line seems to be approx $500 for a station.

Not sure if they are going to renew the tax credit or not......

Really need a charging station?

Can't seem to find an answer for this.

Do I really need a charging station? Can't I just hardwire the SAE J1772 plug into a 220V line and be done with it (although those SAE J1772 cords aren't cheap). Since the car handles the actual charging, what does the station offer?

Thanks!

Re: He's Finally Here: Great Car, Lousy Delivery Experience.

Are they giving you a new front bumper? Chances are it comes from the factory unpainted, and they'll have to paint it. Get down on your hands and knees and inspect it for air bubbles, stray hairs, etc.

Also, went you go to trade it in, they will take off value for your bumper having been replaced.

Re: Placed order for Magnetic 2015

When I search places for parts, there is a date cutoff. One seat is listed as thru 9/17/13 and the other is from 9/18/13 Granted these labels are on the leather seats, looks like I'm ok on cloth. Unfortunately none of the parts places list if they are heated or not. I'm just going to have to see if ...

Placed order for Magnetic 2015

Pulled the trigger over the weekend, after 4 years of waiting for the pricing to come down. Had to order the car. Am told it will be 6-8 weeks. Hopefully the rebates will be even higher then (I'm locked into the $4000 now, so it won't get any worse). Looking forward to it. Has anyone swapped out the...
