    Redline NIX'd for start of production...

    Redline and Stealth Gray are nix'd (dropped) from start of production for CTS-V. Q3 or Q4 is the word on availability. All orders slated as Redline or Stealth Gray must be changed or deleted.

    Sorry....

    So some vendor couldn't come through with the bumpers, or some other minor trim bit, I guess...

    So even though my stealth gray order was "picked up" in the system per the dealer, I can't get that color anymore? Bad news...so are we back just to black or silver? :madtalkin

    Yes, back to black or silver. We had to change two orders today.

    This is becoming a bit of a frustration for me and others I would guess. I have an 05 V light platinum with a light gray interior on order and heard through this forum that the light gray interior color is on hold also. What gives with GM? Is it that difficult to get paint and leather? I can understand a minimal delay but Q3 or Q4 because of paint! It can't be! Someone help me understand this. Larry

    I don't understand it either. I could understand it on the regular CTS, because any *new* features on the 2005 make the remaining 2004 models harder to sell, but on the V, its not like there are hundreds sitting around not selling .

    I don't understand it, I really don't.

    Just to clarify - does this mean that 2005 orders (black on black w/moonroof) are on schedule to start production May 17th as earlier posted?

    Yes. All vehicles (including red or stealth gray that are changed to black or platinum) will be produced on time. If a red or gray is not changed, it will be either deleted or changed to black.

    This gets real confusing for a consumer. My dealer says for the week my order was picked up Stealth Gray was not on constraint so from what he sees in the system they are planning on building it. He says this week, the gray is on constraint for all CTS'. Nothing has been received requiring my ordered color to be changed. Miscreant.....does this make sense from what you see?

    I was contacted via phone from GM Order Management. They confirmed what I had heard hours before. They said NO Redline or Stealth Gray models are going to be produced at start of production. Your dealer will most likely get a call from Order Management insisting on the change. Order Management also said that a GM Messenger message would come across here soon listing the orders that were changed/deleted. The Constraints on GM VOMs are indicative of the current situation, and previous orders are being changed or deleted. If your's goes through, that's great, but from what I was told by several GM people was that Redline and Stealth gray are COMPLETELY nixed for start of production. None will be produced.
