I believe your VIN only comes after the car goes into production...

Update:

From last night to this morning looks like it went from paint shop to "Vehicle is in assembly" message to complete... Phone system lags. Now it says:

4/3/2013 - Your Vehicle Production is complete and is awaiting to be released to the carrier.
