No worries! With CAI and Tune it's pushing 411 hp on a pretty light platform. Handles better on the track than my 2010 2SS RS Camaro did.

Just looking forward to driving the Z

I had a 335i (2008) for a few years and really enjoyed the car. Loved the styling when they first came out. I put a Dinan system on it to get it to 400HP. It was a comfortable car and great to drive but it was quiet and a bit soft - had more of a luxury car feel than a sports car feel. BMW in general has shifted more in the luxury car direction with all its models which is a disappointment to me. Totally different experience from the ZL1 which has a very distinct personality, nothing subtle about it which is what I like.

Greetings all,

I understand the frustration behind the hold(s) on the affected orders and we appreciate your patience to an extreme degree. Currently, the Camaro ZL1 and 1LE are under a quality assessment review. The assessment involves looking at each ZL1 / 1LE unit still at Oshawa to ensure it meets our standards. After the assessment is completed, the units are sent off to the dealers.

Please understand, quality assessment does not necessarily mean there is an issue with any one or all the cars. It is the plant's opportunity to ensure the cars are meeting and exceeding the set standards before the unit is shipped to the dealer and ultimately delivered to the customer.

If the current ZL1/1LE hold at the plant is simply a quality assessment review for each car, then why have no ZL1/1LE's been shipped to any dealers in the last month from Oshawa? It would make the most sense for each car that passes inspection to then be released for shipment to the dealer. Is it realistic to think that none of the cars have passed the quality assessment inspection in the last month?

So why aren't ALL Camaro's being held for inspection?I'm sorry,I fail to believe all ZL1's and 1LE's are being held for a "quality' inspection.I'm not trying to start trouble or anything,I'm just saying it's a load of bull in my opinion.

That's called a canned response to not get the end consumer to panic. I doubt customer service is informed of the reason for the hold.

I just posted over on the other page to Becky to check today on my car to see if it has been released.If I read some of the other post correctly it looks like they have started releasing some. I hope they have and she will have good news for me today!

How many of these quality holds have there been over the past year? In one sense, getting a car that has been gone over with a fine tooth comb at the factory would be a really good thing right?

I'll wonder if it's about the rear main seals. I still get sporadic mouth fulls of burnt oil aroma even as I approach 1,500 miles. I know other people are having this, too.

Well if that is the reason I sure want mine fixed before it leaves there. I just checked my response from Becky and mine is still bayed so I guess it has not been given the green light yet.
