Got my VIN today...

BRZ RWD
DV1SS
JF1ZCAC18D16002xx
7J20
SATIN WHITE/BLK.INT.
3287xx / 001
2012/03

I got a letter from my dealer today saying my BRZ has a VIN and is getting loaded onto a boat in Japan. I was also told though that it won't be released from port until mid-June though. But at least some light at the end of the tunnel.

Anybody else get their VIN?

Note: x'd out the last 2 digits of the VIN.

Oh, nice. In what range was your VON?
edit: just realized you're in Canada, so VON is probably useless...

Yeah, I was told quite a while back that Canadians wouldn't get theirs until late June or July so I was expecting it. Sad but I figure the biggest news is that if my delayed Canadian one is making its way onto a boat that a bunch of American ones will too.

For some reason I figured these boats loaded with BRZ's leaving Japan at 09:00 on April 20th. :P Travel safely BRZ's!

I may have received a VON.

BRZ RWD
DV1SS
n/a
7J20
SATIN WHITE/BLK.INT.
3279xx / 001
2012/5






n/a

That look familiar or not? Received it back in march.

This is great news! I'm not sure why Canadian have their cars sit at port until June??? But if they are already loading NA market cars onto boats, then the US might actually start getting cars by late April already.

There were conflicting articles.. some said that shipments would begin April 20th and others said actual sales would be begin April 20th. I suspect both are incorrect, but the news that your car is on a boat already means that shipments have started sooner than April 20th.. so that is really nice!

Oh, and so people aren't petrified about what this means for them...

Being a Canadian my dealer wasn't able to place my order until March 12 so I would take that as meaning everybody who had a car ordered before then should hopefully have their car on the way soon.

Congrats! This leads me to believe that my source might have been on to something. He said that in CA the dealers will be taking delivery of the vehicles by late April. Now I'm not sure if that means we will be able to purchase in late April, but that's what I was told.

Weird, just noticed that in my first post it's 3287xx and 3279xx. I was told though that 2 SWP were coming in though and I would get whichever came first so as long as 1 comes in... meh.
