I want to be as sure as possible to be able to get a new Sky ASAP and at MSRP so I put deposits on one at three different dealerships. Two in my home state of Florida and one out of state. The first $500 deposit I placed was over a week ago at a local dealership. They had an available image for a white car/ tan interior and top, with all available options. White is OK, but I'm not sure if I will like the tan interior since so much of it is still black. It also has the spoiler, which, after seeing pics of it, looks like an add on that ruins the sleek lines of the car. Perhaps in person, it will look better. My second deposit was out of state from where I would get GM Courtesy Delivery to a local dealer. It was for a silver/black car. This dealer required me to order every available option. The third deposit is with another FL dealer who's policy is never to charge more than MSRP. I was free to order the options I really wanted on the car. My first choice was silver/black. To top it all off, I have been on a list to get one of the first available 2007 Z06 Corvettes at MSRP for about a month. The earliest I could get the Vette would be August. I'm hoping to get the one of the Skys a lot sooner. Soon enough to see if I like it enough to cancel the Corvette order !

Best get that Courtesy Delivery chiseled in stone. I am unable to Courtesy Deliver ANY SKY. And that was straight from the top. BUt yes, seems like you have all the bases covered, lol.

Well I guess the dealers of the other two won't have a problem selling them. Do you think you'll get your $500 back from the other two or will you have to walk away from it?

BTW are they all giving you MSRP?

Dealer in Indianapolis-I am #1 on the list at MSRP.

Today I took Ernests advice and went to the dealer and sat down with the sales manager and had him pull up my record and print it out. :driving: :driving: :driving:

I too looked at the Vette as an option but after getting my Sky I can tell you that you will be so much happier with a Sky. The Sky is by far an eye catcher. No matter where I have been people flock to the car. Granted the Vette is faster and more space but I am happy to have pocketed $30,000 plus and have just as much fun! Trust me once you are in a Sky you will forget the Vette within minutes.:thumbs:

Darn, doesn't look like I will be a 1st 1,000... since I am still a couple of images away from being able to order.

I agree. I wonder what the total # of deposits are combined of all of the dealers? It would be nice to know if you were on the outside looking in after being told you're not.

I'm #7 or 8 out of 10...only 2 have been imaged at my dealer so far. :banghead: I too, have been told that I am guaranteed to get one...it's the 'when' part that they are unsure about. :willy: Spoke with my salesguy last night on the phone and he predicts that I will be imaged the first week of June...hopefully.

All the dealers said the deposits are fully refundable up until the time the car goes for final imaging. The local dealers deposit just gives me first shot at it as it had already been ordered by them.
