Right, if there is something else we need to do to be "early" in line (with a 20 April Reservation, for example), nobody has told us what it is.

What is needed for this "getting in line"?

We do not know which (more-or-less local) dealer to choose, because we do not know the prices.

Also, we do not know which dealer will have LEAFs allocated, or when, or what "position" we will be in that dealer's queue.

So far, we are told "more info 30 June" and "deal with dealers" in August.

I think and I could be wrong. If your on the list then you can go to any dealer and order it then it will be delivered to that dealer.

Your not committing to a price yet, or even committing to the dealership.
Only getting a spot in line at a particular dealership.
You will have to ask the dealership if you are on their list.
I don't know how this is done.
Once you know a dealership knows you exist,
then ask them where you stand.

For example...mwalsh somehow, ask him, got himself on our list.
If I can sell a Leaf to someone as far from our dealership as he is,
then he WILL receive one of the Leaf's in our first month's allocation.
As I have promised to many, he will NOT pay over MSRP.

Our list, or our waiting list, holds positions in line for the customers who have placed themselves there.

Glad to be on your list! But not sure at all what mechanism put me on it, so I don't know how helpful I can be.

You are under no obligation to purchase from Santa Barbara Nissan...yet. You are on our waiting list.
Now...if only YOU could tell everyone else what you did, that might prove to be very helpful.

I am thinking that just as Nissan has used all your configuration information to aid in the product development that is currently ongoing.
They would do the same with your dealership selecting, possibly allocating to the dealerships as the traffic goes.

I quite literally have no idea.

Originally I had Garden Grove Nissan (the one down the street from my house) as my preferred dealer and Santa Barbara Nissan as a dealer who could contact me.

Then, remember, I said to you that I had changed you to be my preferred dealer.

You admonished me not to, since you might not be able to accommodate the purchase due to geographical restrictions.

So I changed it right back to the way it was.

This all happened within a matter of a few minutes, the afternoon before you were due to receive the spreadsheet.

So I am either on your list because the spreadsheet you received happened to be generated during the few minutes that you were my preferred dealer, or I am on your list because when the spreadsheet was generated you were authorized to make contact.

I guess things may become clearer when I go to see the folks at Garden Grove Nissan again and see if I'm on their list at all (if they're even clued in to the fact that they were supposed to have received one!).

SB I signed up on a dealer near my house. Now, how does that affect my place in line. If others signed up before me to the dealer but I signed up on Nissans web site first. I am I before the guy who signed up at the dealer?
