Finally got to see one in person!!!!!! with pics
 
All I can say is WOW!!!!!

As has been said here many times... pictures do not do the scale of this car justice, it seems to be perfect in every proportion.

The Inferno Orange is awesome!!!! But I really can't see myself living with the color, just my opinion.

I got to hear the silver L99 start up, it is quiet at idle... but not silent. On the gas is a whole different story.

The BA system actually thumps a little... very nice sounding (always had systems in my cars), hard to say at this point, but I think subs will compliment this system perfectly.

The silver car (1ss/rs vin#2718 is leaving tonight. The IOM (1ss, vin#2887) is staying a few days for the black rally stripes and ground effects kit. Salesman told me he would call when they are finished with it, for more pics hopefully.

Obviously both cars had the "weighted calipers", but they are not very noticeable while sitting still, not sure about when moving though.

These cars were built on the 9th and 10th, and were delivered on the 21st and 22nd. So 12 days from completion to delivery!!! This was all according to the Inv. Manager.

For those who haven't seen it in person (I never thought I would), I can only describe it as having a "presence". There is no mistaking this car is a beast. It is unlike anything I have ever seen, even my 69.

My thanks to "Krazy and old" for giving me the heads up on these being here, saleman ended up calling me today before I showed up anyway.

Sorry there aren't alot of pics, I really couldn't stop staring and chatting. My 5 yr old is responsible for most of the pics (her mom trained her well).

I'm sure I'm forgetting something... but I'm on such a high I don't care.:wub::wub:

BTW I told them if they stuck they dealer sticker on my car... I would go OFF!!!!! :D:D

Not sure if the production day is right....Mine was built on 4-3-09 according to the event log and vin is 2616......sounds like my car was just barely part of the "hold, getting fixed" group:iono::chevy:

Yeah I thought about that after she said it.. either way, that would put it right around 2 - 2.5 weeks which still isn't too bad.

Ya, that's what it should be for normal production. I know I won't be getting mine for a little while longer. My ground effects nor my car cover have arrived at the dealership yet. I was told they would arrive first.:(

I saw that... looked at Colby and got :mad0259: Finally the silver one comes back from the PDI and it has the sticker too :bonk:... then told him if he does that to my car I would :paddle:. After I said that, I told him I would be bringing my checklist a little earlier than I had originally planned.

He :sm0:... I tried to get the message across to some of the detailers, but they didn't think I was funny :facepalm::D

Evotion, when did you order yours, and when do you get yours? I am going to give them Camaro Scotty's list, that's for sure.:headbang:

Ordered 10/20. The pisser is... if I had not ordered CGM that IOM car would have been mine... but I got bumped:(

Got pulled 4/9. Sitting at 3400 currently. My TPW according to most would have been first week of May, but I'm not counting on it. Either way it looks like it's been averaging about 2 weeks til delivery from build date. Could be May... could be June... but seeing this one tonight... at least I know now they exist.:D

Flynnaz 04-22-2009 10:57 PM

They told me July or August now, its better than Sept, then again I think we know more then them:bangdesk:

Rob490 04-22-2009 11:03 PM

At least you guys can go in there in person and smack them around if you need to. :paddle:

It was pretty tough to convey my rage via email when Colby told me they weren't going to honor the military discount. :mad0259:

It is a sticker, it will probably come off with a hairdryer, but why go there. :yikes:

That sucks!!!!!!!!!

I can't believe they would do that, especially here. DMAFB sends a lot of business their way, that pisses me off too.

I am going to call them tomorrow and subtly hint about it... will let you know if I hear anything new.

Vash 04-22-2009 11:19 PM

It's plastic not a sticker. Just tell them to "please" remove it it should not hurt the paint.

As someone else on the forum suggest in another thread on same subject. Tell then in advance no stickers or logos unless U want them.

Its a rubbery sticker, my buddy just bought a Traverse last week from there. It should come off easy, your right :)

I was pretty mad about it at first. One of the only reasons I agreed to a $1,000 non-refundable deposit and ordered from there instead of just waiting was because they told me they'd honor anything GM offered. I pitched an epic fit and Colby just said (to paraphrase), "If you don't like it, we'll sell it to someone else. No one is honoring discounts. There are plenty of people who want this car." He did offer to give me my deposit back, but at that point (a few weeks ago), I was already pretty emotionally invested in having the car soon.

If you can sway them, that'd be awesome. I even mentioned that I'll be going to Afghanistan in the near-ish future, but no love. :( I don't ever pull the Marine card, but this seemed like a good time to give it a shot.
