I have finally met my car...

After nearly 9 months of waiting (it truly is my baby!) my car is waiting at the dealership and will be delivered to me tomorrow. (Thanks AMA!)
It is just one hell of an amazing looking car...I was looking around it, drooling and commenting to the salesguy on how i was going to tint the windows, powder coat the wheels etc and probably black the car out eventually (not everyone's taste but i love it) The guy looks at me, asks if i'm married, I say no and the next thing i know he is on his knees proposing marriage!!!
It was a funny moment. Bless him.
I am soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited to have it coming home - even if it is going to sit in the garage until the snow leaves.

I was blown away by how frickin' awesome it looks in person. Pictures do not do this car justice!
I haven't driven it yet but can imagine that I will need to be prised out of it once i'm in there!

Thanks guys. I have the Camaro induced perma-grin (even though it's being parked for the winter.) I started it up at the dealership today and it sounds sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet. I snapped a few pics but they're not great (bad lighting etc) so when it comes home I'll take some better ones. Definitely decided i'm going to get the GFX painted...the dealership wanted $1300 for the privilege, pretty sure i can get a better deal than that somewhere in Edmonton!

Yep. Dealers definitely inflate the price for extras like that. Looking forward to those pictures!

bodyshops are real busy here. with the bad weather. to me, i would pay the dealer, since they would be installing them, billing gm warranty. if they scratch it, or wreck it, they fix it. if you have a *X bodyshop in town paint, then take to dealer and shit happens, your beat as they will blame each other leaving you holding the bag.
mind you, i had called ina favor to have a high end shop paint mine, and i installed them, as i didnt want the dealer to skip steps. gm pays 4 warranty hours, and it takes at least 6. it is far from a gravy job for techs, and there are so many ways to cheat. remember when you have them sprayed, you lose GFX warranty.

choose carefully.
