Once smart USA receives your $99 reservation fee, you will receive in return a 10-digit reservation number. This number is actually a coded date and time stamp for when you reserved. It can be decoded as follows:

The last four digits represent the date that you reserved. It is the number of days counting froward from 1/1/04 to the day of reservation. So March 19, 2007, the first day reservations could be made, equals 1173 (1173 days after 1/1/04). Other numbers translate as follows:

1186 = 4/1/07
1216 = 5/1/07
1247 = 6/1/07
1277 = 7/1/07
1308 = 8/1/07
1339 = 9/1/07
1369 = 10/1/07
1400 = 11/1/07
1430 = 12/1/07
1461 = 1/1/08
1492 = 2/1/08
1521 = 3/1/08

The first six digits represent the time of day that you reserved (actually the moment that the computer created your reservation). It is the time written in hours, minutes and seconds, reversed, and based on the 24-hour clock and Pacific time zone.

For example: if your reservation was created at 21 seconds past 10:25 pm Central Time, that equates to 20:25:21 PT, which would result in the first six digits of your reservation number being 125202.

Last 4 digits

My last 4 digits on my reservation are 1125. It does not fit this theory in any way whatsoever. I reserved on June 14 2007 yet my number is lower than the very first reservation holders. Anyone with any alternate theory?

Theory of numbers is correct for my reservations

In Albuquerque, I rez'd a cabrio on May 1 at the dealership and my wife a passion on May 2 on line. The theory proposed works out perfectly as stated based on my rez information. Read the hours, minutes, and seconds backwards, right to left. Try that?

Another way to explain what the number means:
The reservation number that came from "[email protected]" called «Your smart USA Reservation» is the moment your $99 deposit was entered into IB's system.
I.e.
the number: 0345511601 or 03|45|51|1601
03 = 30 seconds
45 = 54 minutes
51 = 15 hours
(all Pacific time)
into the 1601st day after Jan 1, 2004
The program started March 19, 2007 with #...1173
