I'm in Chino Hills, but haven't as yet made a deposit. I'll probably follow reports on teh car's performance and service reliability in local driving conditions before I buy. Besides, I'm not planning on getting a new car until the '09s come out. That should reduce the likeilhood of seeing sticker prices having premiums added to them. This was the case when I purchased a 2000New beetle.
I am in Ventura, CA, (winter) and Silverdale, WA (summer). Just bought a 2006 Passion coupe black / dark metallic grey panels. Couldn't wait. Just love it, but errands take longer answering questions about it.
