    If the cars are now street legal there's nothing to stop passengers going along for the ride.

    Thanks for the information. I bought the tix on Southwest, so I can change them without losing money. I can't cancel as it a family vacation and meeting them in NY. We have a planned beach rental for the duration. So, I could change the flight to come back on Saturday the 14th (at no add'l cost) or Sunday the 15th (about $200 more in fare for my wife and me). But then we'd have to get back to the airport while the rest of the family is still down at the shore. I'll sit on it for now, and see if anything changes.

    I'd defintiely like to get back for the test drive, but I'd have to do some negotiating with my family to do it. The other part of the equation would be the possiblity of future test drives. I'm not going to take delivery til November at the earliest (and that's optimistic given my number in the queue). Which would mean an order in the August/September timeline. With the new store opening in Scottsdale, I'm thinking there will be another chance later before I have to place the order.

    If I wait, I'll just have to live vicariously through all of you people here

    Fully street legal so I plan on filling every seat, if they'll let me, including jump seats, if available, and putting my foot to floor on the highway on ramp.

    July 15th in Scottsdale AZ. I wonder if that means that the new Fashion Square store will be open by then which would be really quick as it is was still boarded up a couple weeks ago.

    I hope they will allow passengers as I want to make sure my wife gets to finally see the car and gets to drive/ride in it.

    Are you the same BYT over on the official forums who just got offered a Sig slot?! If so, you'll probably be getting your car by July and can give the rest of us additional test drives!

    LOL, true and yes, that is me, but if I get on that sig list I expect that I would be one of the last and most likely would wait until August or September for it?

    At the rate they are going, early-to-mid August is very doable even for the straggler Sigs, I think.

    If you do pull the trigger on the Sig, please keep me in mind for a more thorough looking over when you get it (I'll not compel you to offer a test drive) I work in Redwood Shores...
