Short Throw Shifter Constrained??

This is gonna hurt some feelings though.

Chevrolet Team:

Just a quick update on the Camaro launch as preparations are underway this week for the first Dealer Order Submission Process (DOSP) for the all new Camaro.

As outlined in this month's consensus notes, the following items will be on constraint:

* V6 Engine (LS and LT models) due to one per dealer activity
* Cyber Gray Metallic and Summit White Exterior Colors (pending paint availability)
* The LPO High Wing Spoiler (pending validation)


An additional constraint will also will be introduced for the Hurst Short Throw Shifter LPO (code VYV). This shifter will NOT be available as a LPO accessory (appearing on the window and invoice as a dealer-installed accessory), but will be available in the future as both a factory installed RPO, and a regular dealer installed accessory. Further information on the timing of Hurst Short Throw Shifter RPO will be provided in the coming weeks.

Since this shifter will be available as a regular dealer installed accessory, orders with the LPO (code VYV) currently "in-system" will be removed. Dealers should also be encouraged to remove this LPO (code VYV) from their orders.

Customers desiring the Hurst Shifter can instruct their dealers to either wait until the new RPO is introduced, or have the shifter installed at the dealer as a Chevy accessory after the parts are released for sale.

Again, more information on the shifter including availability of the new RPO will be provided in the next few weeks.

Finally, we are planning a web-cast broadcast on the Camaro launch the first week of March for wholesale team members only (dealers will have an IDL broadcast at later date). This web-cast will bring you up to date on current plans and activities including the Camaro unveiling for early May. Details on this webex will be provided next week.

I guess that's what happens when you try to release a car early...

Holy zombie Jesus, I just got off the phone with my sales manager, and he had just gotten the constraint info and removed the LPO code from my order right before I called about it.

Either they are tired of hearing from me, or are actually trying to stay on top of things.

I've called my dealer and asked them to remove me from "Priority #1"....I want the Short throw to show up as an RPO for collector purposes.

This really was that "proverbial straw" that convinced me to wait for CGM, ABL resolution, and stop the frantic worrying.

I guess you could say that I'm "removing myself from the game"....so for the rest of you who continue to "stay in"....good luck!!

I'm sure the "#2 order" behind me that just got bumped up to #1 is going to be one happy camper!!

I really want that shifter, and while the constraint is kind of a disappointment, I like that it may be factory-installed now, so it's done right, from the beginning, and I don't have to worry about my dealer botching anything up. I'm already near the end of my dealer's allotment anyway, so I'm not too worried about being delayed further by this.

Not a big deal just get it later at a cheaper price. And I have worked for GM for a long time and seen Tahoe's come in with different tail lights from GMC products and stuff come in completly messed up. So if you think the factory is perfect in there install of stuff your mistaken I am sure because most people think dealer's are idiots does not mean a mechanic does not know how to install a simple short throw shifter.

And having it on an RPO code does not make it anymore collectable it's a shifter not a numbers matching part.

I'm beginning to wonder about GM myself...how do you not have a part as simple as this ready when you already delayed production 30 days?

Also...seems everyone is wanting/hurting for jobs yet you can't get things ordered on a car...maybe someone needs to look in to that one! Sure seems the demand is there...why not hire someone to produce it?

This is starting to get crazy! I'm still in and will even take delivery without the shifter (as I'll just add it later) but come on GM...

No V6.

That really has me pissed. What's the point of rushing these "one per dealer" v6's out when you won't even be able to get one for months and months if you ordered in April when the cars will be in the showrooms? They should worry about sold orders right now and fit in the freebies when they can.

That is not the point it not what Gm told us all this time, if the car is not ready than do not put it out, or don't advertise to us what is not ready to go on line.

blee
If you're number one you'll need to tell them to remove the LPO code and hold your order until the new RPO code is available. The LPO code will be removed no matter what (either by the dealer or GM).
