    Re: How to check VON number?

    The most painful question out there.... The only two ways that I know of are to call the dealer and have them look it up or call SoA and have them look it up.

    Someone mentioned a Domino's pizza-like update system online....that would be so awesome. Jim-Jim is installing the door panel, John is installing the headlights.

    Waiting just plain sucks.

    And yet knowing isn't going to make it get there any quicker.

    It'll get there when it gets there, knowing exactly what's going on with the car is going to do nothing more than give you a placebo effect to satiate the impatient childishness driving the need to know.

    Childish? Check. Impatient? Check. Your point is what exactly?

    I'd probably want to be able to check, as well, so that I could plan for the car's arrival. Cody, do you never check tracking info for FedEx or UPS shipments?

    Ya, I just ordered my 13 wrx on saturday and I have already called the dealer to check its status... I know I will most likely have to wait a week or two for a VON to appear, but I am sooo impatient.

    What is the "VON" you speak of? A "VIN" is a Vehicle Identification Number, though...


    Yeah, if you just ordered it, prepare to wait. There are a ton of threads just like yours on here about this. Search and scan through them to get a better idea of your wait time.

    Vehicle Order Number. The first step in the long wait to the new wheels.

    VON means it has been logged in the system, VIN means it is tied to real parts and a build date.

    Learn something new every day! Wish I had this when my wrx was coming in, but only if I could use it as a tracking number just like UPS

    Well, not entirely true....your dealer and SoA can both look it up for you, but it is a pretty coarse system and doesn't update all that frequently....

    Right. They have very vague updates (on the boat, on the truck...gee that's helpful!), but there's no way to track it like a UPS package.
