Yeah, Im very pessimistic about it. I hope he's right tho. Either way, he's a good MSRP or less guy. One thing that scared me tho was he said that after the tuesday after ordering, you cant change the order. And the deposit is not refundable. BUT, thats with pricing known. If I know pricing I wont need to cancel or change my order. We'll see what happens Monday...... Im not going to order blind without a refundable deposit.

Whatever you give your dealer for a deposit is to the dealer. Not GM. If your dealer says it's not refundable, that's his policy, NOT GM's I would get another dealer. Mine is totally refundable. I am still amazed at what people will believe on this site. Probably 90-95% of the info here is speculation that people are believing because they have a couple people no more credible than themselves agree with them.

So many of the questions I see on here are answered elswhere on this site or on the internet if people just take a little time to find it.

I'm not putting everyone down on here but damn, take time to read more and realize there are very few experts on this site. There is a small handfull i believe as credible. They all work for GM at some level. A Few others may know more than some of us but the rest are just speculating. I'm glad they are not speculating on my behalf on the stock market.

Much of what I write on here is also opinion based but i'm probably older than most of you. You won't see me writing something that's a guess without saying so, If I guess, I say i'm guessing, not saying I know it as fact.

I'm just saying the answer is usally here already if you read a couple threads and sort thru the . It's a bit aggravating to see the same questions over and over. If you spend enough time on this site you will start to see who are the 'ers are.

Sorry if I strike a nerve with anyone but you are probably the ones this is aimed at.
SRTCLG, this is not aimed directly at you. Yours is just the post I chose for an example. Back on thread, if you can't get your deposit back blame your dealer, not GM. Over MSRP? Dealer, not GM.

May the Mods be kind to me after my rant!

that's kinda a oxymoronic question lol^^ no offense, but speculation means it's a guess and then you asked if it's true so it's a little oxymoronic, no offense.

changed the word to "statement"

Maybe I shouldn't say someone, it's actually an article

http://consumerguideauto.howstuffwor...let-camaro.htm

2010 Chevrolet Camaro Prices: They're a bit hard to predict, what with an on-sale date nearly a year away. But GM has said Camaro will be a premium car, and it won't compete with the Ford Mustang on price. Our guesstimate: The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro V6 coupe will start around $22,000 with the V8 model around $28,000. Convertibles will likely start at around $28,000 for a V6 model and range up to $35,000 for a V8.

That's a bad thing. It means you've gone from a great school to a bad school. Education differences FTL.

Ive read all 324 pricing threads You have hurt my feelings lol. Just kidding... But I should've prolly been clearer in my earlier posts. Please do throw me in with the er's!!

Didn't mean to single anyone out, thought I stressed that in my post. It just bugs me to see the same questions and general statements repeated so many times. [insert beating dead horse]. I realize some of this comes from new members to the site, but there are also a lot of innaccuracies posted by long term members. Just my observation. I have no notion of being better or smarter than anyone else.

We are all anxious and impatiant for our new cars. I cant wait to see the comments that will be posted when we start driving these cars home.

We have many customers who want to "pre-order" Corvettes in March or April for the next model year. This year for example we had dozens of orders placed before we knew pricing. It is just unfortunate how GM structures this. When you pre-order a car such as the Camaro in a couple of weeks, most dealers ask for a deposit to place the order. It is at the dealers descretion as to how much this would be. Once an order is accepted, which in the case of Camaro won't be until December or January, the dealer is obligated to that car. That is why we ask for deposits. With Camaro, the initial allocation is something you need to be cautious about. Early allocation is based on 70% Chevrolet sales and 30% Corvette sales. All Chevy dealers will get a few Camaros at first, but the larger allocations will go to larger Chevrolet dealers who have an emphasis on Corvette sales. Unfortunately, the small dealers will have a hard time getting cars in the first few allocation cycles. Basically, make sure the dealers you are working with sells a large volume of Chevrolet product along with Corvette sales. Hope this helps.

First -- your formula is wrong.

Second -- you should not be talking about this yet!

Your statement that Camaros will go to dealers who have emphasis on Corvette sales is incorrect.

Sorry if my information was incorrect. We were told by a top perfoming Chevy store in the midwest that allocation would be based on the 70/30 split similar to ZR1. I meant in no way to mislead.
