Patience... some people just don't understand how the process works... I didn't, till now.

I'll gladly wait for CGM, so long as its the SAME as the ZR1!

It is a relatively simple issue but they've made the decision to delay CGM by a few weeks. We don't have all the scheduling details of their other lines and the reasons I've stated above make perfect sense as to why they can't just do it now. It's not like they're delaying it by 3 months or something. If they have it in place by April, thats only 10 days of production lost and the only cars affected will be the ones that are #1 or #2 at their dealer and the dealers that can place orders in the first 2 weeks. It sounds like most dealers only got one allocation for the entire build month so half of them will probably still be able to order CGM for even their first cars. Shoot, they may just have allow the dealers to put in the orders still and the plant will just hold the CGM orders until it's ready. Who knows. This is a very small speed bump and I really see no reason to get worked up over it.

And I'm definitely not one of the people that has blind faith in GM especially when it comes to keeping us in the dark. See the numerous ABL thread where I've been outspoken in my argument that they should tell us what's going on.

CGM Delay Qualified by GM Rep @ dealer

I was at a dealer yesterday building my 2SS/RS and the two dealership owners said they had a GM Rep stop by today and said cyber gray camaros will be delayed until August! Looks pretty official now....

I will be #9 at the dealership, their initial allocation is 8 so I'm on their second order. Not sure if I should wait it out for my CGM or pick a different color :-(

IOM/black stripes?!? grrr....

There have been several threads about this already posted. Other threads are saying CGM by late April............lets not spread panic just yet and wait to see what GM says. Fbodfather would be the one to ask this question too and I am sure they will share that information as soon as GM knows itself. My dealer has not been told of any long term delays on CGM so I think I will wait to see what GM says!

I messaged fbodfather yesterday and this was his reply

Two week delay --

Reason: we share paint system with Impala -- Impala will convert to Cyber Gray Metallic -- HOWEVER, we were forced to close Impala production for a few weeks due to the drastic drop in auto sales.

We have sold orders for people who ordered their Impalas in "Dark Tarnished Silver" -- that color goes away - but there is a two week delay because we must build the Impalas in the color ordered.

Two week delay.

dude, why are we getting all these conflicting stories, and why such bad planning? They should have built the impalas, removed that color from the possibilities, and switched over by now.

Good in theory -- now...shut down the Impala plant due to suck-economy...that would make building them kind of a problem, yes?

Not bad planning. Bad timing.

The joke, my friend...is that you used huge red letters when you don't seem to understand exactly what's going on here. Cyber Gray is totally dependent on the Impala's gray being finished. The Impala's gray will not be finished...so Cyber Gray has to wait in line.

It makes far more sense to delay CGM in this circumstance, because as far as you or I know, an 'on time' Cyber Gray car could take longer to deliver than a delayed Cyber Gray car. We'd never know...if not for this forum.

This is good business, they're filling ordered Impala orders...ya know -- those folks who bought an Impala over say...a Camry...wouldn't want to give them any reason to regret that, right? Like...screwing them over because the Camaro guys are whining?

Actually this makes me glad I ordered CMG, I ordered in lower west MoFN Canada so there's no way I'm going to be affected by this delay, and since some people are switching, there will be less of the second most popular colour, adding value to my car.
