Help Needed

My fiancee just got a call from her dealer this morning, her car is being built today and she had originally ordered Cyber gray metallic. She doesn't know what to do because she really wants that color but also really wants the car. She is basically torn with what to do. I have tried getting in touch with FBodfather to see if he had any more info on the constraint but haven't heard back from him yet. Personally I would wait and let the dealer send another car in his allocation in front of hers, but this isn't my decision to make. I also don't want her to tell him she will wait on Cyber gray metallic just to find out that she'll be waiting for another two months for her color. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

She needs to get the color she wants, its her car, her payments, and true happiness only happens when you get what you want. I am waiting on CGM too...

Hello
If she wants a car anytime soon she really should go to a 2nd color choice

Wait for CGM. It'll be on constraint for less than 4 weeks. It'll be worth it.

Remind her that a 2 month wait gets her a car she will probably own for many years. What's the point of rushing into something now, knowing that in a year you'll be looking out the window trying to figure out what kind of loss will be acceptable because you're sick of that damn silver/red/blue and wish you had CGM?

Actually she is calling right now to cancel her order. GM really screwed up, how can a major car manufacturer take so long to make a car in a certain color. If they knew this was going to be a problem they should not have offered the car to begin with in this color, or at least announced, like the summit white, that it would not be available till the summer time or later. What is the point of pre-ordering a car when you are not going to take delivery of it until a month or two prior to it showing up around dealerships for sale to the general public. Like I told her, she's not going to be happy when she sees camaros driving around on the street while she waits at least 4 weeks for her color, and she also would not have been happy if she ordered one in another color just to see the actual color she wanted a few months later. It's a lose-lose situation and I think GM really failed this time, they made such a big hype about this car and then they can't even come through for loyal camaro fans that have pre-ordered this car months in advance.

Canceling over 1 or 2 months.

Dude, she didn't really like this car as much as she let on. Hope she treets your future marriage better than that. Good luck.

Also, sorry to send another post, this information about not knowing a definite time frame as to when the color will be taken off of constraint is total BS. Someone at GM has to know the exact time frame when this will be taken off of constraint, and I feel like we are just having our strings pulled around like puppets. Does GM think they are keeping customers happy with all these unannounced changes and dates that change? Why can't we be just told the truth from the beginning about things and then people can make rational decisions based off of general knowledge. FBodFather, your input would be appreciated as to why we can never get a definite date from GM, last time I messaged you, you said it would be a two week delay, now my dealer is saying a 4 week delay. What is so hard about adding a different color paint to the lineup?

It sounds like she'll be fine waiting for cars to hit the lots and deciding what she really wants then. Something tells me the inability to get it RIGHT NOW has caused her to rethink the whole thing. Not necessarily a bad thing.

In that case, I would change my color. Black maybe.

But I'm biased to this car. If I had to have it right now and Black was on constraints, I would pick a different color, but not a different car.

Is she really cancelling the whole Camaro idea? That sucks. She should wait or change colors - I'm sure we all have second choice colors, they all look nice.

She should buy a $1000.00 Honda, wait for her Camaro, then sell the Honda. No, I'm not kidding.

I have a 77 corvette in the garage for my second car but I don't think I'll be letting her drive that around every day.

She called the dealer earlier and told him to let someone go ahead of her, he send he sends his next allocation of cars in two weeks. Does anyone think CGM will be available by then?

No one really knows. Look at the V6 constraint. Everyone was pissed not knowing when it would be lifted. Now, today V6 orders are getting pulled. Same will probably happen to those of us who ordered CGM.

The delay on CGM is because the Impala's haven't used all of their old grey paint due to extra idle time on the Impala plant. All expectations that I've seen are this should only delay CGM a few (2-4?) weeks and if you really prefer CGM such a wait is well worth it to get the car you want, at least IMO.

Since I was right on with my "guess" for the V6s... I'll toss mine in the ring for CGM.

The constraint will be lifted April 2nd for orders being placed Apr/ 2-5 and built Apr/27-5/1.

This is based on the previous "end of April" availability for CGM on Impalas which should be the same for Camaro.

pffft...

I completely disagree with your 'GM really failed this time' statement. Because of a color??? Please. Calm down and wait a couple of more weeks for CGM.

My previous car was dark gray, and my wife's was silver. After owning both at the same time...I'll choose silver any day of the week. The dark gray will also *likely* be harder to re-sell than silver. The allure that cgm has to this crowd is not likely to have the same effect on the average consumer.
