OK, I was just curious since I have direct access to "watch" my order move through the system.
There is a difference between "D" and "D1" though. "D" is a basically a confirmation of the build date. "D1" is "Gate Line". Essentially saying that the parts have arrived (JIT Manufacturing) and are in line to start the assembly process. Does not mean they will start building that day though.
My Commander went "D" on 7/26 and "D1" on 7/27 but did not actually make it through frame until 8/10. Don't know why there was that gap, maybe a scheduled shutdown for inventory control.
The Compass went 11/10, 11/14 and 11/22 respectivley.
