If your dealer got final allocation for 2 Camaros last week, then both of your orders should go in tomorrow to the Placed Tab.

Which week was this order allocated for from the dates you received in mid Feb?

If my dealer was given a date of 3/12, is that their Pass One Thursday date?

Was the above order Pass One date 2/26? And if 2/26, was that the date you were given mid Feb??

If all is true, then can I assume my TPW to be 4/6 - 4/10??

Sounds like some sort of complicated math problem to me... If a train leaves Boston at 4 pm traveling east and another train leaves the Oshawa plant on 3/12... ***BRAIN EXPLOSION***

What I do not understand is the rumor that the initial allocation (March), which is what I was part of, is getting built in April. I think there is some confusion there and maybe the consensus priod is from the 15th to the 15th of each month?????

I'm just glad to know my car is getting built in a few weeks.

Another guestimate if you don't mind - - what is the ballpark timeframe that a car shows up to the dealer once built?? One week, two??

When I get in tomorrow I'll update to clarify.
Each month there is 1 final allocation report? Is it always mid month or does it vary by dealer?

Sorry for all the questions but my dealer was only initially allocated 1 car through Q3. I'm just trying to find out how many times per month my dealer might find out they get their 1 allocation.

You're right; it's pretty close to a brain explosion but RPO Z28 has helped relieve the migraine.

My dealer has been great but I haven't been able to get this level of detail from them. I just got "we got an allocation", "you're our 1st", and "your order is getting pulled on 3/12".

At least now I feel I know more of what that really means.
I was hoping for early April but it looks more like mid-late April.

The whole March allocation thing got me excited earlier....

Since they come from Canada, it's a tuff question to answer. When the last generation of Camaro's were built, it was about two weeks from build to dealer. All I can say is you are going to see a ton of threads asking where the cars are after they are built.

BTW, the process is not complicated for me because I do this every week. If you were sitting next to me, you would see how easy it really is. The biggest problem I see here is that everyone is relying on salespeople for info when they really are not part of the ordering process. Their managers are the one's who do it.

This is why I started this thread. I think it will be easier to understand if you follow it from the start.

The final allocation report has info for the next 4 weeks.

I think you're spot on and I for one truly appreciate your posts.
It does seem extremely simple and I feel that I fully understand now.
This is the first time someone has actually explained it in this level of detail.

THANKS AGAIN!!!

Well, it's about 830 AM here in the cold northeast. I think it said 13 degrees on my car's outside temperature display. I have my coffee and egg whites on a wrap and I'm ready to go this morning.

After being on this forum for a while, it's pretty exciting watching our first 2010 Camaro go thru the "birthing" process. So here we go for this morning.

Open up Global Connect and click on the "My Placed" link. This will show us all of the orders that ran thru the Pass One process last week. This is the last day for me to make any changes to those orders. If I don't make the necessary changes, I could easily end up with an assortment of generic orders. However, that rarely happens because even if I am on vacation, I either have someone else do it for me or I have internet access and can do it remotely.

But with the Camaro, I have never seen such hype over the order process and I'd better get this one right. I don't want to deal with some crazed Camaro nut who didn't get the proper equipment. I wouldn't do it wrong because of pride so the customer has very little to worry about anyway.

SInce I ran the Pass One with this particular order, I know the car is buildable within constraints so I really don't have to do anything with it except double and triple check.

Next step is to hand the order to the salesperson to double check my work and then I will check it again after he is done with it. At this point, we have no reason to call the customer but if she calls, we will give her the up to date info as we have it (she's not a member of this forum so I'm off the hook).

The status has now moved to a 2000 event code which means "Accepted by GM". My job is done today for this order and I will watch it patiently and update here as to it's status from day to day.

As of today, this order is now considered "Placed" and will appear in the "In System" tab tomorrow. I should get a TPW next Wednesday. It should be the week of 3/23/09.

I will try to post up a screen shot of the order as it sits so you know what to look for.

I applaud your efforts here. Following this order through should quell some of the distrust/discontent of some people who seem to think things do/should change almost daily. I know we covered this last week, but FWIW, I still don't have a TPW on my OrderWORKBENCH even though I've been sitting at event code 3400 for about two weeks. Just throwing it out there as an example for people who see their event codes change and automatically expect delivery in a couple weeks...

So I hand the order to the salesperson to check and he notices an interior discrepancy. Originally the customer wanted all black leather. But then changed to Inferno orange leather. So I changed the order and now the event code shows 2051 (order changed) in the event history yet on the Order Workbench sheet it still shows 2000.

This is why all the hullabaloo over what code your order is at is somewhat inaccurate. All that really matters is when it gets placed after the Pass One.

Confused yet?
