I placed a deposit last week, however they definitely said it will be some time before orders are accepted. Some dealers are taking "Pre-orders" to attempt to reserve a spot in the order queue, or to reserve a car they may recieve. Its a little risky and compative considering the larger deposits may get first dibs on allocation stock. BTW I'm from Long Island, NY.. However I suspect everyone in the Northeast will begin to see cars around the same time.
