    A question for those who have had a Hellcat build completed......

    Curious: does an invoice arrive at the dealership when a VIN is assigned, when a build date is assigned, or when the build is complete?

    Technically yes but I like many others don't do the loan until the car is either within a week of delivery to the dealership or if it's already there

    I waited until the car was at the dealership. Your mileage may vary.

    Oh man If it was already there...Why would you wait? I thought once VIN was issued you were in the home stretch or is that not the case?

    We ordered my wifes car (BMW) nothing special about it she just wanted options that weren't on the lot and I want to say I paid for it when we ordered, but honestly I think I just got the loan and did everything once the car got there.

    Well my sales rep had my name on the order before VIN was issued and he kept his word and the car for me until after I signed papers after the car was already delivered to the show room

    My dealership told me they could not do the final paperwork on a car that was not physically there on their lot. I do not know if that is a State of Georgia thing, or just covering their butts in case something happened to the car in transient. It did not matter to me, because I was forced to wait until their SRT tech was finished doing the check in and the car was detailed/filled with gas anyway.

    VIN is first step to build. Could take a week or more before build starts after VIN assigned. Once build is complete it has to pass inspection and then plan for shipping which can take FOREVER!!! Aging donkeys possibly pull the cars across country. Once my car was within a week of delivery I had the dealer write up the paperwork with my VIN on it to take to my bank for approval. We estimated mileage. It was awesome because when my car got there, I watched it unload, get prepped and got in and drove off. Asked me if they needed to go over features of car, I'm like. I'm on the forum I got it covered. Showed them how to do stuff they didn't and off I went!:D

    My dealer said I can't lock in the loan until they get KZ status (released by plant, invoiced).

    why would you want the loan before you get the car?

    I wanted mine locked in. I was scared they were going to sell it out from under me so I wanted PO with vin on it. The bank didn't finalize until I drove off lot but approval and papers were done.
