I called the Dealer on Tuesday we no nothing. My image was accepted Jan 9,
I got the vin. two weeks ago and nothing.
My Salesperson called from Saturn of Elmhurst the car is on the Showroom floor(number 271). They drove it for gas and she said it just stopped traffic. She said there is always a crowd around it on the floor, it is locked and they have it always in someones view. I'm in New Hampshire on business till next Saturday it is very hard to focus now and I can't wipe this stupid smile off my face. I don't want anyone to drive it so it will sit on the dealer floor for at least 9 days, it will make the dealer happy there traffic builder is in the house.
Im on cloud nine. Insurance for year 890.00 for year in DuPage County Illinois.
Members in the area stop by and see it Saturn of Elmhurst, Marilyn is my salesperson and the best buddy a guy can have she pushed this all the way.

I would if I could

The weekend is when the deals get done, but it will be hard to concentrate.
The car is paid for so there is no chance of anything happening. And the weather is not the best in Chicago Area now. Plus I want to give my dealer a thank you for getting this for me and putting up with my constant nagging. I called her every couple days after I got the vin, and always started conversation as "This is your Sky Pest calling", Great Dealer and great people.

Congrats Eye!!! My first stop this weekend...Saturn of Elmhurst...to have a peek at your car! :D That's not even 10 miles from me! :willy: Just curious...what color/options did ya get?

Regarding insurance...I got a quote from my State Farm agent and the prelim quote I was given was $285/6 months w/$100 deductible. I thought that was pretty darn good for a sporty car. It's only $67 more than my VW Beetle.

Deductible and options

The deductable on insurance 250.00, for 1000 it was only 30.00 difference so it was not worthwhile.

The options everything but x-m radio and spoiler
Color Midnight Blue -Black Top-Black Leather- Chrome Wheels, If anyone goes there post some pics. for me.

Congratulations on your Sky's arrival! I know this will seem like the longest week of your life! But at least you know she's taken care of! Soon you'll be able to actually demonstrate what we've all been dreamin' about-driving away in our own Sky's! Hope this week flies by for you!:willy:

And just in case you're wondering...No, we did NOT sit in it.

Congrats!!!!!:cheers:

Thanks for the pics

Thanks everyone for the comments, and nscrbug for the pics. It looks great! I'm going to have to pour it on to get out of here early. If these people thought I was obnoxious and pushy before, watch out. I just can't wait to drive it off the lot. But if the weather is crummy, I will still wait to pick up til the sun is out. Thanks again for everything to everyone on Forum I wouldn't have got the deal I got or the info to keep the dealer honest with the info you have provided. Can't wait for a rally to meet a lot of you people. Have a Great day and I hope your wait is almost over.

In the same boat

As most of you know, my baby (#573) was shipped 3-14. My dealer is confident it will show up on or before 3-29.

I am presently sitting in Fort Lauderdale airport waiting for a flight to Washington DC. I don't return until the evening of 3-29.

Bet you a dollar my SKY is delivered about the time the wheels leave the tarmac.

Well, I guess I'll have to wait until Thursday.

Let's hope it doesn't have a few hundred miles on it when I get back.

Congrats Eye!

Just curious, but is that dealer charging you $2K over invoice? I canceled my order there last month after they held my deposit for 3 months as they told me I would have to pay more than MSRP.

I placed my order with Saturn of Naperville, and they honored MSRP. They placed an order for me Thursday.

Good luck with the new car!

Msrp

I had it put on pre-order and on order written msrp or less. Thanks to people on this forum. I had copies of everything so no problems. But if you didn't you were screwed. They made the 2thousand over a policy at the end of February
I signed papers on Jan 6 and image was accepted on Jan 9. It was mentioned to me about that change in february, I just reminded them I have the signed contract when the image was accepted.

They will all have the same antenna, it is not only for XM but the onstar, both work great on my Sky....

Zr1Owner...what # are you over at Naperville? Do you know what image they are on? I've got my deposit at Downers Grove..MSRP there too...but I won't get to order for quite some time...probably not until end of May or early June. That's great news that your car was ordered on Thursday...what color/options are you getting?

I was #9 at Naperville, but then due to the red leather, chrome wheels and automatic limitations, I got bumped up to #2 or 3 I believe. I never really asked.

I thought it would be several more months before I could order, but then they called me Tuesday to let me know that I had moved up, but only if I could accept the car without red leather, and with polished wheels.

I have polished wheels on my 05 vette, so I thoght they probably look similar so that was OK wth me. As I was planning on recovering the seats with all red leather, I took the opportunity to move up. I would just need to redo the whole seat instead of just half.

A couple of days ago though they called me to confirm the actual order, and the salesman informed me that the factory accepted the red leather option. So when all is said and done, the only thing I didn't get was the chrome wheels. I can live with that.

The saleperson said that he has no idea when it will arrive, sue to all the issues with ordering this car. They don't want to make any promises. He says that other less popular cars take about a month from order. He expects it to be about 2 weeks more at best. We'll see. That means about lat April beginning on May.

We'll see if any of this adds up.
