Thumbs up Pledge to Provide Accurate Info 2SS Order

Our dealership has allocation this week for our first Camaro 2SS in Inferno Orange. When I get in tomorrow morning I should see this order in our "Placed Tab". Since our customer wants the car ordered as it was from the start, no changes need to be made.

We have named the car, "SIENA" for the purposes of this thread.

What I am going to try to do is provide up to date info on this specific order thru the process until it arrives at the store up until delivery. This will give you guys/gals a little real time info on an order that's in process from today going forward.

Feel free to PM me with questions regarding it and as long as I don't get overwhelmed with PM's, I'll try to answer ASAP.

This way you can "adopt" this order to either supplement your own or just watch the process without dealing with your dealer (assuming they won't help).

Maybe this will help some folks rest a little easier.

BTW, this order is going to a 70+ year old woman who also currently has a 2007 Corvette Coupe (hope she trades it). How cool is that?

RPO

Yes. Pass One on Friday. Good to go on Tuesday. TPW is usually the following Wednesday. Not this Wednesday.

It's like a test to see if an order "passes" and can be built within the constraints for that vehicle. Can be done from Thursday to Saturday. Let's say an order contained a Hurst shifter this week and there were none available nationally. That order would "fail" until you removed the shifter or put another order in it's place.

Thanks for all the great info RPO. But even after reading through the other thread I'm still confused about 1 thing. Was it just last week that you found out you got 1 allocation? Or did you already know you got a car the first week in February but you were just able to fill your given allocation last week?

I'm just wondering if I should have my dealer check each week to see if they get an allocation. Or if the allocation number is only given at the beginnig of the month but GM restricts when you can use it. Hope I was able to word this so you can tell what I'm tring to ask

What are the TPW for the initial allocations provided a few weeks ago?
I was told something was happening with my order on 3/12, possibly a "pull"??
Shouldn't my TPW be in March if part of the initial allotment??

We got our final allocation report mid Feb. (can't run the report now from home to verify) That let us know which week we would get this order. So last Friday we do the Pass One (other thread) and can modify the order tomorrow AM.

When I get in tomorrow I'll update to clarify.

In case anyone didn't see the Pass One from last week, see the pic below and notice the TPW at the top right. So, that means the order this thread is referring to SHOULD be built the week of 3/23 as per this report.

If your dealer got final allocation for 2 Camaros last week, then both of your orders should go in tomorrow to the Placed Tab.

Which week was this order allocated for from the dates you received in mid Feb?

If my dealer was given a date of 3/12, is that their Pass One Thursday date?

Was the above order Pass One date 2/26? And if 2/26, was that the date you were given mid Feb??

If all is true, then can I assume my TPW to be 4/6 - 4/10??

Sounds like some sort of complicated math problem to me... If a train leaves Boston at 4 pm traveling east and another train leaves the Oshawa plant on 3/12... ***BRAIN EXPLOSION***

What I do not understand is the rumor that the initial allocation (March), which is what I was part of, is getting built in April. I think there is some confusion there and maybe the consensus priod is from the 15th to the 15th of each month?????

I'm just glad to know my car is getting built in a few weeks.

Another guestimate if you don't mind - - what is the ballpark timeframe that a car shows up to the dealer once built?? One week, two??

Each month there is 1 final allocation report? Is it always mid month or does it vary by dealer?

Sorry for all the questions but my dealer was only initially allocated 1 car through Q3. I'm just trying to find out how many times per month my dealer might find out they get their 1 allocation.

You're right; it's pretty close to a brain explosion but RPO Z28 has helped relieve the migraine.

My dealer has been great but I haven't been able to get this level of detail from them. I just got "we got an allocation", "you're our 1st", and "your order is getting pulled on 3/12".

At least now I feel I know more of what that really means.
I was hoping for early April but it looks more like mid-late April.

The whole March allocation thing got me excited earlier....
