Number 3, I agree there are many - many new happy camaro owners.

But is is not how you take care of the cars without a problem, It is how GM takes care of the ones that do have a problem that creates true customer service excellence...

I picked up Victory Red SS with cyber grey stripes, no.12977 on Saturday and the car is perfect in every way! I had black ordered originally and changed it. Sure am glad I did!

Unless you are planning to keep it garaged for 30 years, and turn it into a real collector car, the low vin doesn't mean much. If you go to resell this car in the next few years with 80000 miles on it, then you won't get anymore for it because of the low vin. You also won't get any less because it has been repainted. If you can wait, get a new car, if you can't get it repainted. There arn't many pros/cons to either direction other than time. I would personally just get it repainted especially if you can get it custom! The low vin is more nostalgia.

Are you sure of this low of a VIN#? That sounds way too low for a car delivered in the middle of June. Mine was delivered June 17th and was over 10,000.

If it were me, I'd have them repaint the car and throw in some boot! Still a hard decision to make though.

wow...im assuming you didnt pre-order your toyotas, and that you probably bought htem off the lot. so how do you know that there werent issues when they arrived?

Originally I wasn't going to allow the dealer to wash the car so I would be the first to do so.. However there is no way that is going to happen after reading this. I'm really going to have to inspect the car with a fine toothed comb before signing it away..

I took it home, put it in the garage and washed it myself only to find the ENTIRE car covered in overspray. Not a little bit, a ton of it. All body panels, windows, lights, everywhere.
Wow I thought I had it bad with my Z. I had it 4 times to the dealer because it was leaking from all 4 corners of the hardtop, they even had to replace the windshield. Any car no matter what brand can be a crapshoot, just gotta roll with the punches.

I can't make up my mind whether or not I'm going to get them fixed. In one sense I feel like I'm being overly picky, but on the other hand the purchase of this car was a huge financial undertaking.

What would you guys do?

Russ
I thought my blemishes were under the clearcoat... but then.... while applying Zaino..... the polish would leave a "comet-trail" when I passed over the spots.

So I attacked them with Z-AIO (wich has a mild abrasive)...... with no luck.

Keep in mind that these are small spots (~1/8" diamater) that you dont see the first time you look over the car. The only people that noticed mine was me and my freind that works in an auto-body shop that is doing some work for me.

They do get annoying ..... seeing them while appliing each coat of Zaino.... b/c I get at about every possible view angle from the paint when I am polishing the car

Oh forgive me if I haven't been exactly watching the "low vin# hold up" threads............I've been out driving my Camaro!

Hope you get your GFX fixed soon though, it might take the edge off.
