Thanks for bareing with me. I posted to see if anyone else had heard of such an incident. I will absolutely, post what I find out. I should know something Monday morning.
Well, with a VIN in the 3000's, I would say it is definitely an isolated issue. Your car was not that early of a build. You'll have your car up and running again ASAP, but you might want to give the techs a good 2-3 days to do it right.

I have another question for you though. Does your car have those ugly brake calipers on them? Thanks!

A true dream on 4 wheels. Unbelievably smooth. If I had to describe it in one word, DREAM!!!!!! And when I was getting on the freeway and accelerating, the force pushed me back in my seat. The seat that conforms to my backend, hips and back. The steering wheel is even perfect. There are even little thumby thingys. If your hands were at the 2 & 10 position, little knotches stick out where your thumbs would normally rest.

She's ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!

Thumbs up

Surely there is a good reason to have the weights on the brakes. I don't know that if I could say it bothers me. The Brembo brakes are good anyway..... There is a lot of talk about them.

Yes I ordered the personalized plate but as of right now I am not sure if I am going to keep it or not. I am currently trying to decide whether I am going to pay to have black stripes painted on the Rally Yellow or if I am going to switch my color to IOM with no stripes. If I stay with yellow I will of course keep the plate.

Yeah, I wasn't so sure about the Orange. But if you go with that, you have to get the interior to match. That would be so awesome. It's about $1500 difference, decals or paint. But I think all in all painted stripes are better. Also I could get them glossy and not have the flat.

When the car died my husband let it coast, and when it stopped he put it into gear. I think it quite then and we couldn't get it out of park. There is a manual release under the console, you have to remove the passenger side panel and have a screw driver handy. There will be one in my glove box from now on. My husband said that he noticed the lights went off, then he looked down at the dash and it was out. I picture the scene in the movie, Transformers, when the older camaro died when Sam and Makayla were in the car. :(

It's probably what most are saying, some sort of wire crossing thing. I don't know. I just want it fixed so badly.

HHHmmm! I hope that this is a security issue because it could mean more delays for the lower VINs and AZ is having such nice weather right now!

Agreed, and a simple fix. I would bet dollars to donuts the dealer will take care of it and have it back to you very shortly.

To all the other naysayers, please go away.

No, it does not bother me. My last two Z's as soon as I got them I switched out the stock junk pads to Hawk performance pads. I have had nothing but good luck with them, put it this way I never had to put wheel weights on my calipers.

You would willfully switch out Brembos for Hawks? Say it ain't so!!!
