Pretty sure they don't want to make it available again. Sunroof was available on the first transformers edition but not the second.

My dealer told me yesterday that they haven't released anything yet on the HW edition, is he really that much out of the loop?

Unfortunately, they usually are. None of the 3 dealers I went to last month knew anything about the 1LE package. I had to give them a lesson and then they finally saw it in their system. Does Chevrolet give these dealers training? How do they know so little about their product? You'd think they would want to know all of this information so that they could upsell customers whenever possible. Most of the salesmen I encounter just want to hound you about products they know nothing about...but I guess that's a topic for another time.

I can say this, fortunately he's proactive and is more than willing to stay on top if it and let me know ASAP about any info that comes in. So I guess we'll see.

No doubt - customer service is entirely different from product knowledge. I've encountered salesman with very good customer service, but unfortunately they just didn't seem to know their stuff.

Well isn't this a beesh.

GM won't give us a KBM 1LE


This has been a very depressing week for me. At least I get my car back from the body shop today.

Short answers are; yes...usually within days of a media announcement.

The problem is - not all dealerships are pro-active in training their people. And others (like a local one, here) try to have "specialists", but that doesn't work very well when a non-specialist salesperson gets a customer who's interested in those "special" vehicles...

I talked to 2 dealers this week about the HW edition and neither have received allocations yet. One told me I had seen the same things he has...and that was the General Manager. Just told them to let me know when they received allocations, then I would make up my mind.

It says right the Chevy website "available for order 10/29". http://www.chevrolet.com/chevy-cultu...l-edition.html

I wonder if they really need an "allocation" to order it. My dealer didn't seem to have any trouble ordering mine.

Keep us informed. Are you thinking of trading your current Camaro or adding to the stable?

I will.
I'll either trade it in (if they offer a good price), or I'll sell it privately.

That was more of a rhetorical question I was posing. I guess I should have asked if dealers provide any kind of training though as I'm sure Chevrolet provides them with everything they'll need. lol...yeah, the specialist isn't too helpful if it's their day off or "on lunch."

This color car looks amazing. I am equally as frustrated as everyone else to the lack of a good blue. I love my ABM. I have said numerous times that I would have already upgraded to a ZL1 if there was a color like this available. I just dont know why GM can't or won't offer this color. Even as an upgrade color option, i would be willing to pay some extra.

I think the reason the ABM didn't sell well was because the online and even the brochure renderings were hideous. So no one trusted it. Once I saw it in person though, it had to be mine.

If this was available, I would order my ZL1 tomorrow. Listen to us GM.

Any update with your HW? I'd like to see how she came out.
Mine arrived back in April, but wasn't sure if I wanted to get it because the dealer wouldn't offer me what I wanted.
Well, they caved and offed me what I wanted so i'll be going down to today to trade mine and pick my new HW Camaro!
I'll post pics up after I get her.

Silly as it may seem, the things that stopped me from buying one was the "No Sunroof" option and the big Logo on the seats...

Otherwise... I love the color!

I'm happy with no sunroof, but I do think they over did it a little with the logos. The seat logos are fine, but I'm having the body logos removed except for the rear one. I don't like the double stacking on the side. I was contemplating actually removing the Camaro logos too, because its obvious what kind of car it is, but they look too good on the car!
