If you mean the battery cable problem, there is a temporary fix that GM is authorizing if the dealer can't get the parts in. Ask to see the full TSB on the problem and it will say how to fix it temporarily.

That way you can drive the car until they get the parts in and the dealer won't be using it as a show room jewel.

I think the sunroof is nice on the Camaro, it gives you a brighter inside and a more comfortable open feeling.

I agree. When I test drove, I found the interior dark and claustrophobic, but when I opened the sunroof it was a substantial improvement.

Plus, I'm in California where I could open it up 90% of the time.

So I ordered one.

The same sunroof is on the Camaro, so, I say
I really hate to tell you this, but if your sunroof flips up and slides outside the car like the camaro, you are not driving a 2004 VW Passat. If it does in fact slide outside, then it was installed aftermarket and certainly not a fault of VW. Don't get me wrong the factory one is loud but it slides under the roof.

Congrats on the buy.

Was your order for a SIM 2LT/RS w/ Sunroof? Is the sunroof the only difference from your order to the car you bought? If so, i dont see you missing it too much.

no not v6's sunroofs werent on many if they were, and were probably custom. Sunroof to me just turns it into a sports car and ruins the muscle car theme. Muscle cars and sports cars are two different things to me.

Right...And if anybody thinks that a V6 doesn't belong in a muscle is sick in their damn mind. At first I thought I would just have a nice car with the soft engine. WRONG!!!!! This baby is fast as hell and powerful for a V6. I did 110mph on the highway and it was still pulling.

Saw two today...with and without sunroofs. They are both fantastic looking machines. I am getting the sunroof in mine, but I also love the reverse mohawk you get without the sunroof. I didn't realize you can see it on the inside as well. VERY neat!

SIM 2LT RS

I called around to all of the dealers within 250 miles of where I live, hit pay dirt at a dealer 140 miles away. I got the exact car I wanted SIM 2LT RS without having to wait for the car to be made. The dealership believe it or not had the vehicle on the lot for over a week on the showroom floor and nobody bought it. I asked the Sales Manager to hold the car overnight and I would arrive in the morning to purchase the car. I arrived and the car was sitting on the showroom floor with only 3 miles on it, They took it out and let me Test Drive it before any paperwork was done on it. Finally after 6 hours at the Dealership I was able to drive home with it. It was a beautiful drive home that day, as I was in no hurry to get there. The funny part of this situation was that I was going to goto a closer dealer the next day to place my order for the car.

congrats....but....not sure why you decided to settle for something you could've had YOUR way....its like craving a cheeseburger and settling for chicken nuggets....

AND you ended up getting a V6 which my dealer said GM is not selling as many of bc everyone wants the V8...the wait time as of 1 week ago is about 6weeks.....and v8's 5months!


but if your happy then congrats
