Thanks Westsidereaper.. the number is the US one the Canadain one is 800-263-3777... The lady I just talked with does not know anything about it???? Maybe just a US thing??? She is going to get back to me the week after next ( she's gone for a week ??) So if anyone else gets anything ... Let us know.

No Problem man umm, yeah the lady said that she had no knowledge of it, but would look into it and would call me back on tuesday to tell me when Id be getting it. yeah she had no idea what it was but Im keeping my fingers crossed...my dealer still says Im number one.

Your dealer needs to enter your order in WORKBENCH not Autobook. When he does that, you'll get a 6-digit alpha-numeric confirmation number instantly. There is no excuse for him not doing so. Go tomorrow, or call for that matter, but nicely demand he does it. If you're there, he'll give you a copy of the WORKBENCH printout- if you call, tell him to fax it to you after he enters it.

Don't freak out in the meantime, you have until Feb 15th, not that I would wait. Nobody has any official Chevy "position" yet- even me who ordered day one, October 13th. Cars will be delivered in the order the dealer tells GM to do it. GM will tell them next Friday (maybe different in CA ?) how many of what style they can order for March delivery. I would expect that not many dealers will even be able to order any for March. Then it's solely up to the dealer to decide which of the orders he has in hand to match to what GM is allowing him to order. You could be first in line and he could order the 12th guy's car, identical to yours, before yours. You have to trust your dealer to do the right thing. Sucks, but that's the way it is.

First time post was on camaroz28.com for a long time read camaro5.com daily. The dealer as I am can prioritize your orders no matter when it was ordered I can put them in whatever order I choose so I would have you ask him what priority you are. Like I am priority one although I have seven orders in I listed priority 1-7.

Even then you're trusting what you're being told or shown. You could hang up or walk out and with the "flick of the button" your priority can be changed and changed again and changed again...

I know thats what sucks you have to trust your dealer I have no reason to change the priority on my customers I put priority in the same sequence as they came to me to order. Except for mine I was first obviously as I ordered before we were open that day.

Honestly, my only worry is that dealers with larger allocations (aka mine) will bump the pre-orders down in priority and grab some lot cars first now that they can as of today. I'm not worried about losing my spot among the other pre-orders...

Sold orders take priority over lot cars unless the dealer places a fake name and address and orders it as a sold order and changes it's priority.

wrong. Dealers can order all their lot cars ahead of their preorders if they feel like it. Or they can just never place the preorders. They have control over all of their orders.

Good advice. Right at the top of the dealer printout it reads "OrderWORKBENCH". Then "Preliminary Order Detail - Order # ...." My order "number" (identifier?) is four letters then two numbers.

So i took your advice and went to go talk to my dealer about this welcome kit and about the tracking number and what he told me is that the orders are sitting right here in his order book and when GM schedules a date for the car to be produced they will hear something . I told him about the forum and how we are getting direct answers from the people way up higher then some sales manager are telling me to order through the workbench, not autobook. He insisted that his remark was correct and i should basically go home and sit by the phone and wait for his call. He didnt want to give me the time of day and all that fun stuff...... so either he is right or i just picked the wrong Chevy dealership

I ordered in October and haven't seen a letter or kit yet? Just get me some sort of a timeline so I can sell my old car and plan a road trip in the new one.

What does the letter or kit have to do with selling your old car? As long as you know your spot in line at the dealer and his total allocation you should be able to guess with 60 days when you would be getting your car IMO.

Bumble bee ss ... your deal sould have a 6 digit number for you ... if he does not I would not worry to much about it as they sales and the ordering guy's might not talk to each other LOL .. does happen ... If you made the deposit you should get the car .. As far as I know my dealer did not want me to have my number so I had to go up the food chain .. got though .. keep on 'em

IMO, he's a douchebag. You have every right to have that 6 digit order confirmation #. If I was in your situation, I'd email Chevy customer service. When they give you the response saying that the dealer should give you that number (which they undoubtedly will), take that to him and ask him if Chevy is wrong too...

You already own two Camaros so they figure they don't have to "woo you into submission" ?

Ya its weird with alot of the dealers Im hearing about. Since I was the first to order at mine I was given the workbench paper from the get go no questions ask and he told me not to lose that paper. And then when I called GM yesterday for the kit I was able to give them my order number, which was weird cuz it had like one number in it.....but come to think of it, that was the only way to order the car was through the workbench, he was honest with me on the first day that whats in his workbench is what should be ordered because there is no other way to do that, there were 12 slots for 12 cars so once all 12 kits are out its pretty much a guarantee so long as the $500 deposite is in order.

Ok this is starting to piss me off on how Canadian's are getting the shaft on the letters, paint color pallets, camaro's being at shows and dealerships . How come the US is getting this and Canadian's aren't? they are built here and they don't even have one on show anywhere in Canada that I know of.
