    What has been your experience in placing a C8 order?

    Called my Chev dealer and asked when a C8 will arrive for the showroom. "We have 8 pre orders and don't expect a showroom C8 for a year". Why they don't order one for the dealership, I don't understand. Unless Chev has them on allotment. Just wonder what your experiences have been?

    Yes, dealers have specific allotments (allocations) of C8. If they can sell all of their allocations without putting one on the showroom floor, why would they?

    Most dealers around me are asking over MSRP with absurd non-refundable deposit requirements. I went with one of the big three east coast dealers. MSRP, reasonable refundable deposit, no dealer fees and expert Corvette experts. I'll order R8C (Museum Delivery) and have a great road trip home.

    Well, here is what I did with my dealer today.
    He will keep it in the show room until the weather look ok. He is a 20-year friend and I think
    It would be great to have a C8 in his small dealership show room for everybody to come see. Fun stuff.
    3LT, COLOR CODE GS7, FE4 MSRide CONTROL and PTM, Z51 PACKAGE, J6F RED CALIPERS
    TU7 TW TONE SEATS, 38S RED STICHING, 3F9 RED BELTS. E60 FRONT LIFT ADJUST
    ZZ3 ENGINE APPEARANCE PACKAGE, ERI BATTERY PROTECT, 5ZU, HIGH WING

    ALL FIRED UP. BUT........... COULD BE ALONG TIME TO GET. THE UPSIDE IS BY THE TIME THIS ONE GOES IN, I MAY BE ABLE TO GET A Z06 OR BETTER. LOOKING TO HAVE ONE BY THE END OF AUGUST 2020. MY BIG 60.
    LOOKS LIKE, AS OF KNOW THE LONG POLE IN THE TENT IS THE GPS LIFT FRONT END.

    LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK AND THOUGHTS ON WHAT TIMIMG WILL BE.

    Here she is.

    Looks great Mack! As to timing- I think at this point no one can predict since production has not started and constraints are not known.

    Mine's going to be long beach red, 2lt jet black, Z51, MRC, and probably the lift.. I'm not paying Chevy to paint the calipers torch red, I'll paint them LBR, or perhaps "fly" yellow. I already own 4 Deltran battery tenders (two of them dual units, yes I have a lot of things with batteries...lol) so I don't need battery protection.

    Anything else, I can add later...

    Oh, and that high wing won't work so well with a golf bag...lol

    Sorry Jeff,
    Anyway, I called Mike at Criswell, gave him a CC# and I'm on his list. (which is REALLY long right now.) THe only good thing is that he gets a lot of allocations, and he said that usually, about 40% of people drop out.

    He anticipates that I'll see my car in June... That's fine with me.

    About 2 weeks ago I contacted Classic Chevy in Dallas inquiring about available allocations. I received an immediate response via IM from the Internet Sales group. Kurt suggested I send my refundable deposit in quickly since they were in the process of finalizing the initial list. I Faxed my deposit info to him and was advised a week later that I was accepted. Last Saturday, I was in the Dallas area and stopped by just to meet Kurt and thank him for getting me on the list. Since I had a spreadsheet with me that listed all the order codes I wanted, Kurt took time to enter my order information right then, so I am all set. Classic is selling at MSRP, no ADM. All in all, the process was quite easy. Many thanks to Kurt, outstanding service!

    One day after the reveal I called the dealer where I bought my 2014 in Columbia, IL. They had 8 guaranteed first consensus allocations 24 for the year. I gave a refundable deposit for a MSRP price and I’m number 7 of 8 for the first consensus. Optioned my order the day pricing came out. (they still had 16 allocations left as of the 15th)
    I’m at 1100 with a 2020 C8 3LT-GS7w/HTO,Z51,FE4,E60,Q8T,ZZ3,FA5,J6E,VQK,RWJ,ERI.

    I went to order a C8 today but as we went through the options I was informed that I could not order he Magnetic Ride Control without ordering the Z51 option. I held off until I can make sure that is correct? Any help out there? Thanks guys.
