Are you sitting down?! I called my dealer today to let them know that I noticed some posts on this website saying they were able to place orders for an RL. Later he called me and said that a GM Exec had called and was willing to put me on the list for 1 of 5 RL's being delivered in Michigan this year! I immediately agreed and was told that this will push my order ahead and I should get it even sooner than if I had ordered a regular Sky!!! WOOO HOOO!

My dealer suggested that maybe GM is wanting to get some RL's on the road to get more interest (like they need more interest!!??!!).

I don't think this is BS but was told I may have my RL in 1 1/2 - 2 months! It happens my 40th birthday is July 17 so I told them that is the date they should shoot for delivery!! Everyone think happy thoughts!!!! I have already cleaned out my garage! :D

No I don't think it's BS. You will see some Red Lines by MAYBE end of September, but I would say by the End of October for sure.

The GM exec said 1 in 5 DELIVERED THIS YEAR in Michigan. He didn't say July big difference.

I wouldn't plan on seeing it in 1 1/2 to 2 months though. I know when the unofficial production of the GXP is going to start and the Red Line should be about the same time. So plan on MAYBE end of September or October for these car's to start hitting the streets.

Nothing is official yet, there could be quality issues or some problems that could arise which could make production start a little late. You have to wait untill the date get's a little closer and they make it official.

I would NOT hold my breath if you are expecting July/06 delivery of your RedLine... :nono: I don't expect to see the first deliveries until the October timeframe. :thumbs: I don't mind being wrong here though :lol: .

Regards,

:willy: BA :willy:

My local dealer didn't know anything about ordering the RL
The local dealer here (NOT where I bought my Sky) said they are already over "promised" on the regular Sky with 30 deposits. As of 10 days ago when I stopped in, they had only received 3. - Good luck to the 27 people in-waiting. When I mentioned Redline I really got nothing but a shrug, as if to say "Not this year".:confused: Another dealer I called said they had not received any word about ordering the Redline. I got a "Probably next year"
I know dealers are independently run but how can there be so much difference between dealers?:confused: :confused:
How can one be supposedly writing up orders and others with no information to offer?
:cheers:

Amen! Shocks me how poorly informed the dealerships are. I am a Newbie member on this forum and the GM at my dealership said to me today "Honestly you probably know more about the RedLine Sky than I do" and I agreed with him.........sad. I told him to come to this forum if he wanted to meet some folks who knew about the Sky.

Luke the one's with no info aren't trying to get info ! Tell them bring up the work bench order system and they will see they can order. Plus a lot of dealers might not want to order a red line for someone, they will keep it as a dealer order and get 5,000/10,000 mark up.

You are right on. :thumbs:
You've given me some tools to work with regards the order system.
I am sure some dealers are going to want the RL for themselves to make a few bucks. I guess at this point when it comes to knowing what's going on, is where you can separate the "men from the boys".
:cheers:

Bring dealer proof of order

SkySpy had a recent post on his order and made doc with what the Dealerworld system would print out on order. Or P.m. me I can fax you copy of mine with Dealerworld markings and all then they would have to answer your request to order. You may not like what you here they may be making them all dealer ordered at your dealership

so correct me if I'm wrong...but if we special order the RL we just pay the price for the car w/o any markup from the dealer?
That is the way it is suppose to work.
