Angry Blue SS/ can change order yet.

People there is power with numbers. To everyone that has ordered or is ordering a SS in AQUA or IMPERIAL BLUE, send emails to (contactus@ccgm.ca) in Oshawa to have the colour blue on the SS. My car has been on order from day one and it is loaded in Black so it can go to a paint shop when I recieve it.Cherl Pilcher (camaro production manager annouced that the SS can now be ordered in blue), when I read this I went to the dealership to change the order from BLACK to AQUA BLUE. They said it could'nt be done,I contacted GM in Oshawa Ontario & they confirmed via email that it can be ordered but the dealers still say no.WE NEED TO CONTACT GM AND TELL THEM TO INFORM THE DEALERSHIPS THAT BLUE IS A GO. At his time the big 3 are having money problems,If they let the customers order the car the way they wanted they would have a happy customer translating into repeat sales (A HAPPY CUSTOMER ALWAYS RETURNS) This is the salution to the money problems they have at this time.

FOR YOUR INFO.
They are producing 3 cars a day for training the employes. The first true product Camaro was yellow. After the employees are up to speed I think the line will be able to produce at least 300 units per day or more.

There was a message sent to dealers on 12/4/08 that the changes were made in Workbench and that blue could be ordered along with the polished wheels with the SS/RS package and a few other changes. Search the threads and you will find the official announcement from GM. Print it out and take it to your dealer (or email it to them). And BTW, you aren't the only one who is having this problem.

Man, I thought that problem was solved.

Advice from a dealer on another thread that may or may not help:
The dealer needs to go to the preliminary order screen and click on the options (just the codes). It will bring up a screen just for options and allow you to add or subtract options. Don't go under the regular "Configure a New Vehicle." Go to the "Quick Order" link. They are under the same order vehicle tab.

Good luck!

SS in blue/ First yellow SS

thumbup:Thanks alot for the input, I will be going to the dealership today to let them know.


On a sadder not the for anyone that ordered a YELLOW SS (this was the car that first came off the line 2 weeks ago) Everyone was stand at the end of the line and the person put on a show with the car. Keep in mind the SS's are dangeously fast, it hit a light poll in the yard, I am should that somone at GM has this video. So if your car is aSS in YELLOW check the body good.

I cant find any video of the yellow SS, and I dont think that Camaro will ever be sold to the public. I wonder if these first Camaros even have a VIN#?

BLUE SS in Canada still not possible.

The dealership still can't change the colours on a SS to BLUE. I went to the GM WORK BENCH and then to the quick order its not there. Keep in mind people I am in Canada I hope that it can be done on the Canadian side also. Are there any people reading this that has changed a order to a BLUE SS.

I still think that if GM is flooded with emails about the BLUE on SS's they will breakdown and get there act into gear.

Thanks for the input Rodrunner and Camaropete.

They might be production...but I'm 99% sure they're not saleable cars. That is; they can't be sent to dealerships and bought.

As for the blue issue; keep prodding your dealer. See if he/she can find out exactly what's wrong...because it SHOULD work. If that doesn't work; try contacting Chevrolet/GM CANADA...ask them what's wrong.

The newest news on the chevylaunch site witch was added 12/04/08 says that Imperial Blue Metallic and Aqua Blue Metallic will be available on all SS Models and that the polished wheels can be added to the RS package and that White Stripes will be available with Rally Yellow exterior color. This is legit info off chevylaunch.com

Edit: Also customers taking delivery of 2010 Camaro 1LT, 2LT or 2SS model will be upgraded at no additional charge to one year service of OnStar’s Direction and Connection Package.

Yeah, I saw that about a whole year of OnStar...pretty cool. Of course by then we'll probably be hooked on it and have to renew...we'll see...a buddy of mine has it in his Envoy and loves it.

Gotta love how the 1SS is still being shafted...buy accessories as aftermarket or dealer add-on now the 1LT gets a perk that the 1SS does not? Awesome..

It seems ridiculous that the 1SS buyers are getting shafted on 1 year of onstar service.. Whats the point of not allowing someone spending over $30,000 on a car who will have more money to spend than V6 buyers not to try the product out for a year...I guess they don't want me to be interested in me getting onstar..

You'll get the basic OnStar Service, just not the turn by turn which costs about $100 more....You COULD always "upgrade"....And right now they let you try it free for like 30 days.

BTW, I just wanted to update everyone. My dealer was able to update my order this week (added the polished wheels to my RS/SS). He had some trouble until I sent him the release from 12/4 that says the changes were made. If you still can't get your order updated, I would copy that new release and forward it to your dealer.
