Actually, GM can't change the allocation process to reward those dealers that don't rip off their customers. Legally, they are bound to set up a fair and equal way to distribute allocation, such as sales volume for the last 12 months. Those that sell more will get more, those that sell less will get less. Ideally, the buying public would gravitate to the larger dealers that are able to survive based on a large volume of sales at low margin rather than purchasing from dealers that survive on high margin low volume.

My guess is 2000 +/- 5 pre-ordered so far. That's 1 per every 2 dealers, roughly.
