So I got a call from my dealership today. He said he had an image available (my heart rate jumped about 60 beats in a second) but then it was a manual only. ARGH :banghead:

I asked him to change the image to an automatic and I'll wait till it's built but he said the images they have gotten (4 so far) have all been manual's and they can't change that.

So is my dealer speaking the truth? I thought you could change an image to automatic (or vice versa) or am I just confused and going through depression because I have no sky :(

Thanks :)

Joseph,

This is true. I was #4 at the dealer and was bumped up to #2 because their image was for a manual transmission. The GM told me that his wife wanted an automatic so I was given her image. My GM and Sales Guy are really great and would recommend them to anyone.

The image itself does not determine Man or Auto, it is just an alloted Sky, however the asvailabilty of auto or any other option is soley up to the day on which it is ordered. If the dealer is ordering, he would know the availabilty the minute he sends the order via his computer, it will either accept or reject depending on the availability. If he is ordering his Skys the way he wants them then it would be a standard shift, however if hwe is ordering for you then you have the option iof waiting or accpeting the manual. It could change daily, in my case I was rejected for auto, it accepted for manual. The image does not come in predetermined!

Technically is NOT true... :nono: The only reason it could be called a Manual image is because there is a restriction at the time that image was last attempted to be changed. You see images come from GM already full of choices (color, stereo, wheels, transmission type, etc) and is up to the retailer to change it to acommodate what they need/want so if the image was already spece'd out with a manual and the auto tranny is not available (limited) then they may not be able to change it. :thumbs:

Regards,

Hi ERNEST I was there for my image change, the car was pre spect and then we started to change it to build my car...all worked fine for me..but it realy was not my image..the person in the #3 spot wanted an auto and the dealship was not aloud to change it from Standard..so they called me to see if I was ready...(who had to ask)...it came in as Black, change it to Chili Pepper, and had chrome wheels (left them) then added XM and LSD the Monsoon was all ready added...SEAL9

That makes 3 of us (at least). On Moday my wife stopped at our dealer and was able to sit in their demo and "play". Afterward she called and was babbling with excitement. She couldn't stop saying how awesome it was and how cool the information center was. She also noted how small the stick shift was (This is a "family forum" so I won't go into details as to what she related it to, but I'm not sure if I should be insulted or proud !). We were hopeing to see a jump in our event code on Tues. but still sitting at 025 also.

Our image was in on 3/7, was at code 025 on 3/14...... but there we sit.
Think the chrome wheel issues are the hold-up ?

Oh well, as long as it's here before 4/28, our 33rd wedding anniversary (Can you say Road Trip !). For those trying to do the math in their head, we're not that old (she's 51 but looks 40 and I'm 54). If I ever get enough posts I'll make our avatar a pic of us, if not there'll be pics when our Sky arrives.
