I'm sure that the first cars here will go to the Sheikh's when they do eventually get here. That's just the way things work. My Focus ST was the second one in the UAE because a Sheikh took the first one.

I imagine all the guys who ordered here are just getting a little irate now. At least 10 of us ordered our cars before December last year. And the hardest thing to deal with is that the guys on the showroom floor know a lot less about the cars than we do. Dubai4C can confirm that they're still telling us that only 4 cars have been delivered to ANY customers in the world.

This is where I wish we could bypass the middle man. I get blank stares when I ask them about other buyers getting models of their cars, and they revert to "Mr Clint, there are only 4 cars in the world, what are you talking about?"

Would love to, but doubt my visa would be cleared in time...

They had an LE in the Dubai showroom for a few days last year. Think I spent a good hour in and around the car (until my wife could take no more). Found out that the fixed passenger seat was horribly uncomfortable to me, but then remembered that I mostly drive cars from behind the steering wheel, so problem solved.

Only bumped into one other guy from the UAE so far, and apparently there are 30 of us (upped from 10).

Possibly a good place to start is trying to make sense of what exactly is happening here. Dubai4C and I have totally different stories from the same store in Dubai. So, anybody else in the UAE on this forum? Would love to hear what you've heard.

This is me so far;

- Put my deposit down in November 2013, the 8th person to book a car in the UAE. Was told that the car would arrive in Feb, and would include a free service plan and car cover.
- In February I have to phone them, and I get told that there is good news, that my car will be registered as a 2015 model (their version of good news is different to mine apparently). And the first shipment of 12 cars is coming in June, and I'll most likely get my number.
- I'm also told that there are only 4 red cars in existence (no other colours), which goes against everything I'm seeing on the interwebs.
- In May I discover Dubai4C has received an email confirming his number. I call the dealer up and he swears that no one has been assigned numbers, not even the Sheikh's who've ordered. And apparently the rest of the world is smoking some sort of hallucinogenic because there are still only 4 cars in existence. (So guys, your cars are imaginary!).

That's my story for now.

Yay! Joy unto us!* Deliveries possibly moved to August according to my dealer today.
