When did you actually place the order with dealer if that was different than deposit?? I 've had a deposit on a Z06 for over 5 months so deposit to TPW doesn't mean much since there is not an actual order.

I don't know if your question was directed to me, RaceBlue, but (as I understand things) all a deposit does is hold your place in the dealer's queue. In our cases (people making deposits in the later part of 2019) we sat in the dealer's queue for a long time! Only when the dealer's allocation (a few cars at a time) is takes care of everybody ahead of us does our deposit result in an "Order" with an "Order Number". For me that took more than a year!

Of course to get a TPW you definitely have an Order Number. Remember lists like below, where (I think) having a TPW means you're at 3400, where I was when I wrote that note. I still don't expect to see my car for several weeks.

I understand the process as I've gone thru this in previous years and agree with your description.. Generally deposit date means nothing to Chevrolet, only the dealer since no order has been generated. That being the case I didn't understand the issue with the duration from deposit being placed until TPW. From order to TPW would make more sense to me since it is no longer just on a list at the dealer but by Chevrolet since they now have an actual order. Thanks again.

Congrats SgtMaj. Decided to wait til the political scene is settled to order mine. Have a 2014 2LT so I can at least sleep.
