Order placed today, an interesting meeting

I placed my order today!!
1SS
GBV
AFL
UQA
VRU
VZG

Everything went smoothly and rather quickly. I told the dealer that I was not in a hurry for the car and would be willing to accept a car that was outside of his allocation allotment.

The dealer agreed to accept my GM student discount (basically priced at supplier pricing as I understand it) and I received a print out of the workbench paperwork with my 6-letter ordering number. This is the only paperwork I received. The student discount expires on July 29th.
If my car comes in after that date, will I still be able to use this discount?
Any paperwork that I needed to get from him to confirm the acceptance of the discount?

When we finished, I got up and left and totally forgot about putting down a deposit; the dealer forgot also or he did not want one. I have bought from this dealership in the past might be his reasoning for not requiring a deposit. Great experience!!

Congrats! I dont know much about GM discounts though. You should ask your dealer, and get all terms in writing....

It was stated earlier that welcome kits would arrive within 60 days of order being placed

It has been my experiance that most discounts can be re-applied for after they expire. Asuming you are still a student after it expires. I have the GM supplier discount through my work, and it last for a about a year, then I can restart it. I also have access to a Credit union disount. Doesn't matter either way since my dealer won't take them :(

My dealer told me today that GM is sending one car to every dealer first so they can display them and then my order will come in later. Is this really true or did they sell the one to somebody else first and tell me i was getting the only one they get allocated in this first run? He said they do NOT know what color or what style - they said it will ship in an enclosed trailer so they will know what they get when they open the trailer. This sounds like a bunch of BS to me.
Has anyone heard the same story from their dealership and if not could you call your salesman and ask if this is true please - i feel like i am not getting the true from him.
Thanks

I don't know why you picked this thread to revive but yes, it is true. All dealers are getting one v6. Your order is not affected by this car. (unless it's a v6 in which case it's affected by the one-per-dealer program as a whole as they are under constraint).

If you ordered a V6 the dealer cars ARE taking priority....I know it sux, but that's just how it is. GM wants it to be their bread and butter so they are getting 1 out to the dealers as soon as they can for the May reveals.

np, and don't feel too bad, I'm kinda in the same boat, many will get their cars ahead of us that ordered in October. It's not when you ordered that matters...it's where you ordered :(

There are listings of the auto shows around the country that have Camaros in them on the site somewhere.
