To others waiting for their ZL1 to arrive

Do you find yourself constantly looking at photos of the car and rereading the same magazine articles and watching the same YouTube videos over and over again?

I am starting to get frustrated and started to look at new cars. I ordered my car in Mar and had it accepted by GM and nothing since. I am sure it will arrive right before the 2014's start production.

I am getting somewhat impatient, but it may be a blessing in disguise
since the winter/snow season is approaching in the New England area.

My order: QNDD5S. CT has not moved beyond 1100 since 7/31/12.

Went to order one and was advised it might be best to wait until spring at this point (which will mostly likely make me want to wait until 2014 models anyway). Sigh.

I can check your order status if you would like. I can also check my resources to see if there is a dealership in your area with same options.

Let us know!

I already took delivery of mine and I still constantly watch YouTube and read every article that comes through my google notifications. It's worth the wait!!!

To others waiting for their ZL1 to arrive

Whether we have our ZL1 yet or are still waiting (like me), aren't we all collecting all the same magazine articles on the ZL1 (most of which also review the 662HP 2013 GT500 and compare the two)?

It's actually what I read here on Camaro5 that gets me more and more worried:

Will my 2013 ZL1 have the good ZL1 dash emblem or the one that peels off easily?
Will the exposed carbon fiber hood insert have any flaws in the finish or clearcoat?
Will the paint have numerous blemishes and/or dirt particles trapped in the paint?
Will my wheels be nicely sealed or will the lug pockets be unfinished?
Will my car have a coolant leak because of a fitting cross-threaded at the factory?
Will my car have a leak at the master cylinder cover?
Will the dealership install the front license plate bracket even though I instructed them not to?
Will the dealership fail to remove the spacers from the front springs?
Will the dealership remember to give me the spring spacers after they remove them?
What in heck else can they possibly screw up on a $60K car?
