My dealer has not been able to have his 2015 orders accepted by GM as of July 31 st. I would like to know how many Canadians now have their order accepted ie registered in the system. Thanks for your assistance.
Canadian dealers allocations are every Thursday. Dealer told me there was no Z51 or Fay allocations Yesterday. If you wanted a regular non Z51 the order would be at 2000 yesterday. Hopefully next Thursday some Z51's will be allocated.My dealer has not been able to have his 2015 orders accepted by GM as of July 31 st.

If you order your Vette from Steve Scherer here in Kitchener, I'll drive it out to you. It'll be broken in and ready for you to enjoy.My dealer has not been able to have his 2015 orders accepted by GM as of July 31 st.

I do have a 2015 order with status 3000 n TPW 18thAug14. I must emphasize that this was a 2014 model year order that was automatically carried over from August 2013. Hope this info would be helpful. Good luck!
I very much doubt that colour choice matters except for the new orange . I ordered Laguna Blue after first ordering CyberGrey, then changed to White, then to LBT. Ordering the Z51 did not help for model year 2014. Depends on which dealer U ordered from and obviously their allocations.Thanks, in retrospect I should of ordered a 2014 that would of been carried over to 2015........lessons learned. I have ordered a basic coupe in Laguna Blue hoping that a basic corvette will be built faster and Laguna blue being a color not selected by many that I could get in the queue faster.....time will tell. Thanks everyone.
I went thru Wilson Niblett, if you aren't in the GM system and don't have a status code then being on hold at the dealership really means nothing other than they have your deposit. You need your order accepted by GM with a status code to consider yourself actually in line to be built. Last I talked to them they had a significant waiting list, they are a good dealership to work with but much of this is out of their control. The allocation system that GM uses is weighted heavily towards a few big dealers in the U.S. , Canadians are an after thought. Good news is it shouldn't be a problem for spring delivery, stay in touch with them and make sure you have a status code from GM by the turn of the year and you should be good to go for spring time. Count on about 3 months minimum to be built once you enter the GM system. Having dealt with WN I would go back to them, good people. Trying to work with a one off dealer in a small town, nope , wouldn't do that, WN knows Corvettes.Hey Grimsby Guy we are close. I have my hold position in with Wilson Niblett in Toronto and am also from Niagara...Fonthill. I was advised that it doesn't make sense right now to order before pricing comes in because allocations are not complete yet, pricing is not set and my specific configuration may change as I am set on Daytona Sunrise Orange which guarantees my order to be a Spring delivery. Whether I order now or in 2 weeks when the pricing comes down doesn't change my position in line.
I REALLY wish us Canadians could participate in the Museaum delivery/presentation option....too bad. Waiting daily for that price list...and actually waiting to see that of the base Z06 in Canada as well.
My options will most likely include the Daytona orange with Pacific package, LT3 and Z51 with auto...dependent of course on just how much of a price jump we see in Canada which could force me to the ZF1 appearance package.
Quite the opposite experience I had with them, maybe it depends on the sales guy. I was a cash buyer as well, not sure that makes much difference. WN received 40+ 2014 'Vettes last year. I tried with local dealers in London and they were getting 1 maybe 2 cars a year, just not worth it as they had no idea when they could get you a car. My car was ordered in May and I received it in July. Think I have may have been an exception though when it comes to timelines as I had some help from GM Canada.I went to WN and was not impressed with them. They didn't seem to really want to help, they wanted to sell me the stock orders they had coming in and wasn't really interested in a Factory order since allocations were few and far between. Didn't even help that I was a cash buyer.
I ordered from Owais at Gateway in Brampton. A smaller Corvette dealer looking to grow their Corvette business. I think they had an original allocation of 5 for MY14 but ended up selling 12 I think.
I know they already have 3 MY15 orders with TPW's. One is a LT2 Convert Z51 with a TPW of 8/11, so will be one of the first in the country. They also already sold their first Z06 allocation, and have one more allocation available.
I would definitely deal with them again, I received emails every time my order status changed so was always in the loop.
