R6P-If Window Stckr shows price increases-How do u get dealer 2 honor org MSRP price?

Many people ordered prior to the 2 announced price increases (IOM paint increase, Auto Trans increase, Factory installed Stripe increase, according to the past and previous chevrolet.com price listings).

I have in writing from the dealer to sell "at MSRP" (Which is the only guarantee you could hope to get as a pre-order). I preordered mine 10/28...

But...

The Window Sticker URL for my VIN and the Chev website shows all pricing at the "current" price, that is, an extra charge for IOM, and factory installed stripes, and the auto trans. It seems kinda creepy that I have to pay for extra IOM when I never "realized" that IOM was a premium color and when I ordered stripes they were $395, and now being reported as $470. I can sort of buy the Auto trans increase from 995 to 1185 because of the "remote start" surcharge or whatever...

I read on another thread to just "tell my dealer to honor the original price and GM will credit the dealer the difference". While that may or may not be true, the only thing I have in writing is MSRP. My dealer can honestly "play dumb" and say the agreed on price is MSRP, and there was no guaranteed pricing until the window sticker/invoice was available... especially if the window sticker and "current" MSRP tools includes the price increases.

How on earth to I get the dealer to honor the pricing before the April announced price increases? Please help!

The dealer sent me pricing that had a number (not just MSRP) once the initial MSRP was released ...

But that is a good question .. hopefully someone can chime in and answer it ..

I'd ask them now before the car actually gets here. Be cool, but be firm!

Well it was widely promoted that all who ordered early was price protected. Sounds like we need to Beam up Camaro Scotty to the bridge!!

That sounds "easy", but
since I've never discussed MSRP with them before,
never threw "preliminary MSRP numbers" back and forth,
official MSRP pricing released always seems to have a disclaimer like "subject to change without notice"

My challenge is to show that prices actually increased since my order, and even though the window sticker says one thing, they shouldn't really charge me for the IOM premium cost and the stripe price increase because the site didn't show that a few months ago. When I placed my order, there was little to NO pricing, and the only "estimated MSRP" came from Order Workbook PDF files marked up by members of this site. I feel stupid calling them without some sort of hard "proof" to back my claims up...

What should I cite to them to verify that IOM wasn't a premium when I ordered or factory stripes really used to be $395? Doesn't sound like something I would do if I were a dealer... Especially if this dealer really wasn't proactive in obtaining pricing for the camaros, but always "waited" for GM to tell them something... Get my drift?

I would love to hear the answer to this as well....

At this point all we have from our dealer is the same thing, a promise to sell at msrp, but he keeps telling us he will have the price for us " soon ", now I have the price list that I printed from this website with all the prices, from invoice to msrp for all the items, including the car and all the seperate accesories. I plan on taking this with us when we pick up the car, but at this point our dealer still hasn't given us a price and my wife is freaking out ! I don't think he is going to rip us off or anything ( keeping fingers crossed ) , he keeps telling me the car is going to be around 37k, this is for a 2SS w/ black stripes, sunroof, polished wheels. When I run the numbers I get $37812.05 so I'm not too worried, yet. But, I wonder which msrp he plans on trying to use ???

my dealer also wrote up the order for the car to be sold at msrp, and made it clear to me that msrp could change between now and when I receive car.

I had my sales manager write up the deal, tax, tag, and title included and less my deposit. I know to the penny how much to show up with on delivery day. Since this won't be the last car you ever buy, don't leave yourself open to added charges and get it in writing next time. Thats the beauty of preordering at an introductory price.
On the downside.... many people have already got their cars or can buy them as lot cars while I wait at event code 1100. But I will get my car the way I want it at an agreed price.

when a lot of us places our orders in October there was no confirmed price sheet to go off of. . . thus we couldnt get it down to the dollar price quote.

While what you said may be 100% true, it doesn't help those of us who ordered prior to pricing being available, yet were still "smart enough" to get MSRP in writing.

Any ideas on how I can get the dealer to honor MSRP prior to April? Or more specifically, how do I prove to the dealer that MSRP was less prior to April (IOM wasn't a premium, and factory installed stripes were $395 not $470)? Or even better, can a dealer just chime in and tell me that when my window sticker is officially printed, it won't reflect the IOM premium and stripe price increase? The URL for the window sticker at wwww23.chevrolet.com for my vin and the "build you own" website shows otherwise...

When I orderd my car the dealership printed out a price plan from workbench. Did you get something stating the price of the car, options, etc when you ordered it?

If you orderd before the pricing was announced, did you get anything from them when your status changed in workbench?

It sucks that your not getting the original pricing.

Good luck!

1) When I ordered it, pricing wasn't available from Workbench.
2) No. I wasn't smart enough to ask if pricing was available through workbench on a status change. How could I have known to ask? As of 5/1, my dealer tells me that the pricing for my car isnt available through the workbench yet... I think he is specifically talking about an MSRP price for my specific car...
3) I don't know if I'm not getting the original pricing.

I'm just trying to prepare for a possibility that the window sticker doesn't show original pricing. That is, I am hoping my window sticker doesnt show a $395 premium for IOM, since my workbench order was placed 10/28. I have that printout (my original workbench order), along with a signed paper saying they will honor MSRP. But according to this site, April was when a "price increase" happened, and IOM became a premium color. If my window sticker does show the IOM premium, I'm asking if anyone can help me show something to my dealer that would allow me to be justified in not paying extra cost for IOM. Otherwise, our agreement is "MSRP".

I'm guessing a lot of Oct/Nov preorders are in the same situation as me...

This is what I got from GM in Feb. I'll also post up a Feb price sheet in a sec.

Neal,

Counting down the days until you can get behind the wheel of your very own all new Camaro? You're in fast company. Less than one month remains to preorder one at introductory prices.1 Be one of the first to own a true 21st-century sports car.

Which one will you choose? It's available in a V6 with 304 hp and an estimated 27 MPG highway2 or in an SS, which generates 426 hp and goes from 0 to 60 in 4.7 seconds.

To preorder, download a spec sheet and then go to a local dealer to place your order. Be sure to hold your place in line before March 15, 2009.

I'm confused.

Won't the window sticker on a pre-order have the R6P code and have the original pricing that was locked in?

If so, and you agreed to MSRP, you pay what's on the sticker don't you?

The thread that came out with the new price increase in April stated the invoices will come with current prices, but the R6P code guarantees you get the pre-increase pricing.

What happens if you changed part of your order after the price increase? I kept telling my dealer I wanted to change the color but he encouraged me to wait...then the price increase came. I changed the exterior color and stripes. Do I now pay the increase for these items + the increase on the automatic and accessories that I didn't change?

I wonder what price the invoice will pop up with...or do they have to manually modify it to pre-increase prices?

Invoice has pricing as of time the car was built. It will be interesting to hear if people are able to get the correct, preorder pricing.

Maybe this will help some people. This is the email they sent to people who signed up for the camaro mailing list clearly stating that preorders would be price protected.
