Any Canadians receive their letter from GM?

Just wondering if any Canadians have received the 2 letters from GM regarding your order and the passcode to get that sketch off of the website.

Im not sure if the sheet they gave me is a workbench. Can anyone describe theirs? Mines just sheet with the options and specs with a black/white pic of the camaro on top. No "workbench" written on the document. Is this it? Thanks in advance.

yea... the whole time i've been calling it workbench, and really all it says at the bottom of every page is "GM Autobook, Data Version: 133.4"

Mine is a black and white camaro on the front too.... stupid canadian dealerships. why the hell are we not on par with the same ordering system as the states?

Yeah thats what I got. No order number, nothing. Doesnt look good for us Canadians. Where did you order from? I hope we dont get the shaft on our orders. Why the hell does that always happen to us when US is involved. The damn car is built in Canada. They can atleast keep us in the same playing field. I also just found out today that a major supplier for tooling for my work is taking out all distribution retailers out of Canada and keeping everything in the states. Now I have to order from the states and wait for delivery instead of calling my distributor and receiving it in 15 min. Goddamn american companies. Sorry for the rant.

No letter for me yet, as you hang around here long enough, you find that us Canucks get the short end of the stick quite a bit. US prices for GMPPs have been out for a month now, and GM Canada is still twiddling their thumbs. None of us have received letters yet (And I wouldn't hold my breath, either.) AND our dealerships didn't get any of the paint swatch booklets either, and yet there are douchebags in America getting like 4-5 of them and selling em on Ebay.
I don't get how the country that MAKES the car can have so little info on it. I hope someone from GM canada reads this forum, or that the Fbodfather can make some phone calls and send some black suburbans up north to start getting things on track up here.

We went through this on another thread. The Canadian dealers do use Workbench. Autobook is some other "processing" system I believe for getting prices, etc and not for ordering. I'll look up the other thread...

Ok- found it...

look in the following thread->

Appears most dealers in Canada did not enter the orders into Work Bench.

Those who figured a price used Auto book. I got a 6 digit and copy of Work Bench on Friday after "placing " my order last Nov. Now there seems to be some urgency to get the orders into the system.

Got mine back in November too. Of course I now have a second one - but that's another story. I think the letters was a US thing only. But I'm going to be calling GM very shortly to complain. I think it's total BS why the Canadian pre-orders would be excluded. Or perhaps the postage to Canada will make the general go under.

My dealer called me yesterday to tell me that all the orders have been put through on the 29th, he had explained to me before about why they did it this way and he expects my car in April, i told him April sounds great but May is my deadline. He said that it should be in for sure by May. I thought it was stupid that he said April, but then i realzied that everything he has told me has been right, and hes a great saleman, so if figured what the hell, anyways so he told me to come in today, but seeing as how i tore my ligment in my left knee, it took me until about an hour ago to finally get there, but he was gone, he did tell me to come in at 10, so it was my fault. Anyways so im going to get further details on all the orders and estimation time on monday.
My dealer told me that when they had ordered their Malibus, they came within a couple of weeks of eachother, i know theyre different cars, but there are less orders for the Camaro here.
Heres hoping for the Camaro in May
