Anybody receive one with grey stripe

I still haven't seen one delivered with the exposed cf and grey stripe? Anybody? Won't be getting mine for a couple more weeks and would like to see detailed pics of grey stripe against exposed cf, preferably on white.

I don't believe that any of the cars with the exposed CF insert and grey stripes have shipped yet. Fbodfather posted the other day that they were still working on the stripe. I have an order with the exposed and the stripe and my dealer expects delivery to be April 27.

I agree that is the reason. If I could I would have mine sent as is. I am going to remove the stripe regardless because they only put it on the trunk lid with a sunroof. I just can't imagine it will make much design sense. If they end up using the 3M carbon fiber look stripe on my trunk lid and I like it then I might keep it on and buy the roof piece and have it installed.

Either way, I am being patient but would prefer to have the car. I would have just removed the stripe, eaten the $470 I spent on the stripe and been real close to Ultra-Grin with the other three ZL1s already in New Mexico on their way to LA.

Can anybody confirm they have not shipped cars with the grey stripe?

That combo was my second choice... I ended up going white... I have a feeling you're going to really like it...

Interesting how we haven't seen any shipped yet... possibly some slight changes..

Funny, white was my second choice. I liked what I saw on Chevrolets website when I changed the ZL1 to CRT. No stripe though. I wonder what the "issue" is with the stripe. Color? How they were applied?. Quality of material? Anybody know?

If there is a problem I'm assuming it is a color issue as it looked horrible at the auto show, not even close to matching the exposed cf insert. Can we PLEASE get an update. Up until today I thought my car had already shipped? Now it seems there is another issue.

This is from fbodfather. It's in the shipped delivered get in here thread...





We just love reading these posts - the passion that each of you exhibits for these magnificent machines inspires us -- and it's so great to see the excitement!

All - the Team at Oshawa is working as fast as possible to get every one of the ZL1s on a train or truck. We never want to delay getting your Camaro (LS, LT, SS or ZL1) to you ASAP - but quality must be the guiding light in all we do......)


Each car is important to us just as it is to you......

In some cases, we're replacing components if we feel they aren't up to our standards. (Stripes in particular)


the next few days will be memorable as many of you will meet your 'Camaro Comrade' for the first time - and hopefully it will be the beginning of a wonderful relationship that lasts for years!




It is a GREAT time to be a Camaro Enthusiast!

If I take delivery April 27th (or later), that's going to be one very expensive stripe kit for ME as I will lose a few grand in TAX Credit toward the ZL1 from the VR-4 I SOLD last year. It's the same principle as "trade-in" value only it's applicable to Out-of-State or sales to non licensed individuals in-State for a "limited period of time".

GOOD GRIEF! If this is true... just send the car NOW with the proverbial duct tape color stripe. This would be ZL1 #61 & it's been sitting on a back lot since January. I will NEVER special order a car again; it will be out of available stock, I'd have a chance to examine the vehicle or I'd move on to something else if dealers got any greedier. C'mon guys... I have a serious case of PERMA-FROWN right now & this is getting ridiculous. Please do us both a favor & do NOT tell me how it will be worth it in the end.

I would agree that it would have been nice if this stripe issue could have been resolved during that period of time the cars sat in the QC hold. In effect they made the wait longer for a number of us. For some reason it wasn't possible to do 2 things at the same time. Bets on a third delay?

Maybe they'll make it right with Priority Mail or Overnight Shipping.

A 3rd delay would just about send me over the edge. I'm locked into a NON REFUNDABLE deposit of $2.5K. If that were not the case, I'd be looking elsewhere, especially with a $5K over MSRP "deal" pending. I agree with hypoxic; Chevy had plenty of time to change their aesthetics to a BLACK stripe or "whatever" while they were running their CTF cars. I was thrilled to see my build date in January, but every time I go to GM Connects anymore, I get more depressed & wonder: what's next?

You probably won't see them for a little bit, yet...as posted - I think the gray stripes are being fixed.

Well now you know how to set your expectations in the future because they couldn't be met for what you wanted.

Unfortunately....

Hopefully, you stick with it stymie, because only after your behind the wheel will you be able to realize that the wait is truly worth it.
