I'm not waiting until Oct and you can mark me down on that one.
I switched from 2LT to 2SS two days ago. Got an email this morning that they got a consensus and my order will go in in a week or two.

^^^That's one way to make everything be alright. Ken Dixon got 2 this concensus too, so mine will also be going in pretty soon. I think you'll thoroughly enjoy the extra V8 ponies. Congrats!

I am thinking since they said that v6's would be under constraint for a month because of the 1 per dealer thing. If thats so next week when they release constraints it will be a month from march 16th that those orders will be built so lets hope next thursday we will find out there is no longer a v6 constraint. If not i am going to be very angry.

Ok, so are these march builds being made in april? Or are they actual april builds? Guess what I'm saying is, are these march builds getting in the way of my april build ? If so, move aside please

No, Sean, the production goes in order, week after week. Dealers are allowed to submit orders each Thursday - Saturday for production in a future week. The timetable is:

Submit-------------Build
Mar/12-14............Apr/6-10
Mar/19-21............Apr/13-17
Mar/26-28............Apr/20-24
Apr/ 2-5...............Apr/27-5/1

Did your dealer get any cars this last concensus on March 6th? If so, they can be submitted, as allowed by GM, from March 12th to April 5th for production in April. Your car being submitted by the dealer also depends on your priority number, #1 thru #5,10,20.

Wow, now I'm really confused. This is not how I though it all worked. When they said March builds and Aprils builds, I asumed that they would be built in those months, not just submitted. So technically, no customer cars will actually be built in March?

So here's my settup..

I am #3. 1 & 2 were picked for March build/submission. Is there a chance both 1&2 would be taken for submission in the March 12-14 period (I'll call my dealer for this info). If so, mine could be submitted in the March 19-21 period?

Yes they will, he just didn't go back far enough in listing dates. There were orders pulled in Feb, mine included, that will be built this month.

Well, I do feel a little better. Let me see if I got this correct. If I have an april build, at the earliest, I could hear about it this week (March 12-14). Or later if it's going to be built later in april. Being the first one on the april concensus, I would think I would be an early build (as far as the others at my dealership goes at least.)

My only reall worry is, does the dealer have to actually enter his weekly submissions by hand, or does the system automaticly take the orders in the priority the dealer has them in?

Only my dealer can answer the rest I quess.

The part that you care about is that if you pre-ordered there is a good chance that you will have your car by summer. And if we weren't such fanatics and if this was any other car, you wouldn't even know that this crap (consensus, allocations, etc) existed, cause you would just go to the dealer and buy a car off the lot.
