When my 1LE comes in...

I already told my dealer that I don't want the front plate on nor want them to wash it. I was just wondering if the car comes with a full tank or does the dealer fill it up? I want to make sure it's 91 octane from either Chevron or Shell.

That won't happen. My dealer only puts 87 in all of their cars.

The first two requests are mine as well. The gas part it's harder. They take their cars offsite. You could tell them to don't add fuel.

My dealer is good to work with. We ask, they do it. When it comes to license plate holders they toss them in the trunk, as for the first tank of gas my sales guy who I've been dealing with for many years takes it himself and fills it with premium if I ask and when ever a vehicle is delivered or is in for a service issue we always ask them to skip the complimentary wash.

Pretty good folks in my book, we ask, they do it.

Dealer put full tank in - I told him if he wasn't putting in 93 I'd do it....I made him show me the receipt showing 93 on it!

I put the full tank in when I went for my test drive when it arrived, of course the dealer paid for it.

My dealer didnt install the front bracket, left it in the trunk.

And it was signed off with a full tank of premium.

They knew what they were doing when I drove up, to make the deal.

My dealer was very careful to follow my delivery directions. It was not washed or dealer prepped other than to install necessary items like the splitter. They did not install the front license plate holder but I did sign a waiver on that since Cali is a front license plate state so they had to cover their ass. And when I asked for premium on the first fill up they let me drive it down to the gas station right near by and gas it up with whatever I wanted and just had to bring the receipt back. Overall I was petty happy with my first new car ever and the factory order process was great, I think I will always order cars if I purchase new in the future.

I was lucky, when my car arrived on a Monday, it was on the showroom floor Tuesday. Wednesday am, I cranked it and drove it off the showroom floor. Hardly had any gas, so my salesman hopped in and my test drive included a gas station. I was able to pump good ole 93 Octane myself!

Had same request to my dealer. DO NOT wash and if you put fuel in it make it '93, no less! They had no problem with this and my salesman even filled up the tank before I picked it up He was however a little sad to see me drive off the lot in a dirty car!

I got very unlucky. Since I didnt order mine it came with the fron license plate on already. Only good thing is the dealer only puts 93 in all performance vehicles (camaro, vette)

Yeah Im a Chevy Guy. 11 Silverado, 12 Malibu, 14 Camaro 1LE
