I ordered my car in December 2001 and took delivery mid-April 2002.
It was SO worth the wait!
My dealer let me have one for a full day (overnight) during a heat wave in February (called a Chinook up here) because of the long production/delivery timeline.
Heard from dealer (Mississauga, Ontario) ship docks in Halifax on November 24/02, pretty good turnaround for a November 7/02 assembly date. Photos to come on the big day.
(PS, I turn 50 on Dec 13/02, most daring hatchback before was the made in Germany Capri II in 1976. While car shopping back in October the Missus suggested that I look at Benz after we left the Acura dealer, the sunroof RSX type S had insufficient headroom).
