Here's what the dealership has told me... First, part manufacture's have been unwilling or able to produce many more parts than are required for vehicle production. This is partially due to the fact that a certain amount of parts for production have been paid for by GM but a good many have not and the manufacturer's arent going real far out on the financial limb for GM. Also, GM is in the process of changing the distributors that inventory the parts for the dealers. This change took place on July 1st and has furthered the delay of part availability; especially accessories not ordered at the time of vehicle order. You can ask you dealership parts manager to request GM to "release" a part directly from the manufacture to your dealership. This cuts out the distribution channel, however, if there are no parts availalble that doesn't help you much. I did this with my GMPP exhaust and it arrived in one day!!

That would kind of piss me off, especially with something like the dovetail. You are paying a certain price for your car to look a certain way, and waiting that long is unexceptable. its like you are paying that extra money every car payment, no matter how small a difference, for nothing for the time being until you get your spoiler.

I ordered my quarter flares a week after delivery, and they were installed by the delaer less than another week after that. I currently have the car cover on order.

When ordering parts that are not in stock, my dealer asks me to pre-pay, with the promise that I can return a part that turns out to be different than what I was looking for.

Maybe this pre-payment is making a difference in lead time.

We may have some quarter flares left in stock, depending on color -

I ordered my engine cover with the car, and stripe package as well. I have had the car three weeks, but still no stripes of cover.


Oh well, at least I got the car!
