Cancelling my order...

So I was browsing inventories at dealers in MA today within driving distance and found a vehicle about 90 minutes away from me nearly identical to the one I ordered, but in Black instead of White.

So I called my dealer and told him to try to obtain this one and cancel my order (since it's still in 1100). I'm now impatiently awaiting a phone call back to see if he can make this happen! I think it would be in his best interest because otherwise I would be cancelling and bringing my business elsewhere.

I have the GM Card Top-off of an additional $1,000 expiring on Feb. 1, and seeing as though I will VERY unlikely not have my ordered car by then, I think settling for my second choice color is well worth $1000!

Mostly commentary. Feedback is obviously welcome.
I'm just extremely excited! I think I already have a permagrin.

$1000 is a good amount to save but make sure that you're ok with the different color option. But I guess you really can't go wrong with any color on this car. They're all beautiful. Let us know how it turns out. Post up some pics when you get it.

Did you order the SS with a manual LS3 engine? I ordered a white SS with black leather interior and a sunroof, along with the RS package and LS3 engine. Unfortunately I have to wait until the end of February or early March. However, if you ordered the exact same vehicle, maybe the dealers will do a transfer/trade.

At this point in time any dealer that can't get an allocation right away needs to be avoided. Sales are slow right now, and so are orders. If you dealer can't get an allocation now they won't get one later in the spring when orders skyrocket again! Good move to go with another dealer IMO.

I had a black hummer, and black 7 series, and a black tahoe and for the first time ever, I'm switching to white. I'm so tired of dusting and wiping down my black cars and getting them washed once a week! I have a silver jeep and a silver tahoe and only wipe it down every two weeks! I can't wait to get my white camaro. Remember, WHITE IS THE NEW BLACK!

I mean, I even bought a GREY one and it's amazing, I can't wait to go see it in.... 38 mins.... 22 secs....

But who's counting hehe.

Wait for white. I lost my first one that I impulse bought basically and had to buy one across the country and paid shipping to get another white. No color I've been around has received as much attention as the white.

You will probably spend that 1000.00 you saved on supplies to keep black looking good. Ask me how I know....If white is what you ordered then I would stick to it. Don't get me wrong, I love my Black SS but the swirls are soooo much easier to see. I wish that I would have bought an ABM from a dealer here on the forum and had it shipped if I could'nt have found it locally. If you are not a perfectionist concerning the appearance then you may not regret it, but if you are buying a Camaro I bet you are. Think twice because black takes a lot of work.

Yea the color Black is very tight, but the problem is the damn marks and swirls that pop up way to easy. Its like a back of an iphone or the screen, gets smudgy very easily. Thats why I love CGM, on all my cars. Just easier to maintain on a daily basis, and little nicks here and there don't look as bad.

Well I spoke with the dealer. He said he can definitely swap with the other dealership for the car. He just needs to see what day they can get it up [it's about an hour or so away] and when they can get me in.

White and Black are the only 2 colors I would want, anyways...the only reason why I had ordered the White is because I have a Black 06 Cobalt now. I'm very impartial between the two, and to save a grand, I'm more than okay with the Black.

Aside from the 2 options that was on my order (auto tran and sunroof), the black one also has the Polished 19"s and the spare tire...so I'm essentially getting more and paying less!

I was offered a new black SS in stock at my dealer back in June @ MSRP. I could have driven it off the lot the next day. I wanted Summit white and waited to order it. I got my dream car on 8/21/09. Going from white to black ??.
Check out post #19 above (picard 2112)- You will not be sorry in my opinion.

What till you put it in your garage. I went out today after a long day at work, to sneak a peek at mine. Ended up chortling out loud and telling her how beautiful she is.

And I just couldn't help myself, this car is just so freaking gorgeous.
