IOM Delivered 5-18!!

Well, it made it Dang digital cameras don't show the orange very well, but it is ORANGE. Very sexy in person. Great tranny and clutch feel, visability is great and sun roof clearance ok (6'2"). Neat trick on the window down a crack when the door closes to equalize pressure! Hope it is ok at 155
If your's may be in QC, be glad--keep reading......
I notice on http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...t=23000&page=2 discussions about the front bumper color. I did not notice mine right off, but it is for sure off color. But some folks around these build dates better WATCH THE DOOR FIT (see pics) Dealer has worked on for a day and not much luck. Body shop guys trying now. They have been great and I bet they get it fixed
Midnitght silver wheels once poliched do show some black reflections from the black inside of the wheel, so they are good.
Any one waiting on ground effect? The dealer said shipping packaging had to be changed so waiting on reship? Maybe another thread. But I'm not doing the "official" title until the ground effects are on and the door is right.
Over all, while waiting an extra day or two is no good, walking in and seeing it pampered in the show room and the overall look is SUPER

The window looks to be down a bit. I'll bet the door was cracked no way that could get by QC.

Sorry guys- it is that way for sure. Dealer worked on it a bit yesterday, but now the body shop guys get a crack at it to see if they can move the fender a bit. problem is the hood/fender alingment is perfect, so they can't really do much--so far. Anyone know what is up with the mismatched front color?

The front bumper mismatching can be attributed to the metallic nature of the paint. Its that or the bumper is being sprayed at a different time than the car and its being different.

Our 09 Malibu is Black Granite Metallic and no matter what you do or what angle you look at the front bumper from it looks like a different color. It seems more grey than the rest of the car. However, the bumper is EXACTLY the same color per a color gun at a paint shop.

That door is whacked! Can't believe that it was shipped like that. I really don't see the mismatch in color. Glad you are still hyped about the car! She's a beauty!!!!!

That is a car that needs to be sent back to GM so they can trouble shoot how the door got on like that and how it passed the quality control process

So please tell me you guys are just trying to personally push my buttons. You can't tell that door is open? It's obviously open. Why don't you guys ask if it is really a Camaro?

Sorry man- unless gm can deliver one this week ( it is not going back. With all the trouble others are having and mine getting here so fast (IS that the problem?) my dealer can bill GM for the repair.
Gues us IOM's will have to live with the color difference. are the reds that way?

No worries, but it is like that as it sits in the show room this instant. Now wheather it was like that on the truck, as you appear correct on the truck picture, I can't say. But how could it have moved like that, and then been solid when I was opening and closing the doors, I'd like to know. So I would call it a factory issue.
More pics Thursday-gone tomorrow.
