You just placed the order.. Chances are they haven't had a chance to put it in the computer system yet. One thing to remember guys, is the dealers will general call you periodically to let you know where your vehicle is. The sales person, can't access the workbench. That usually takes a manager. And please be understanding that dealerships usually get busy. Best thing to do is wait a week, then just call the sales person early in morning, and ask if he could check that for you.

I'd say give them about a week, then they should have the order number for you! If it takes them longer then that, stay on them, call till you get it!

Just ask for the order number. That's all you really need.

1100 and 3000 are order status codes. The numbers change as your order goes through the process of being built. If you look at my signature block I have most of the important ones listed. Once you get your order number you can go the tracking thread and ask the Viz. He can track it up to 3800, which is your car being built. Hope this helps you out.

Call Monday. They could have submitted your order in workbench while you were there. There is NO reason not to enter it and give you your 6-digit confirmation number- NONE.

might be worth it to find out how many orders are ahead of yours and find out how many allocations they have so you have an idea of how long you should expect to wait. some dealers will just take your order and let you hang out there expecting to have a car soon. meanwhile your order isn't even close to being accepted or produced. pm me if you need any help.

finaly went to the dealer and ordered my camaro today.

hey guys the dealer I went to told me they have available allocation to order my car. he also showed me how many cars he has been getting alloted each month. when I asked him if he would give me my order number right of way he said give me your deposit we will order the car on thursday. He told me that he can only put orders in on thursdays for some reason, that sounded strange to me. I need some advice people does this sound normal or is he gunna hold my order for 4 months before he puts the order in lol. Also I heard that dealers can put orders in when ever they want even if they dont have allocation. He told me im looking at about 2 to 3 months for the car. Should i have asked him for something more \. should i have not ordered from him , Your opinions are greatly appreciated thanks.

thursday is the day that each order cycle begins and that may be the day he has set aside time to place orders. you can put an order in any time between 9am to 9pm est but since the camaro allocation is based on gm's formula the order wouldn't be picked up until the dealer has an allocation and the order doesn't include any constraints in that order period.

I think for the most part you are the exception to the rule. Most people are finding out that the sales guys are in no big hurry to help out if the car isn't on their lot..... IMO if the lots were full of Camaros the sales guys would fall over each other trying to get the sale ......
