    My CTS Being Built Now

    I heard from the factory today (friend of a friend) that my CTS is being built now. Should be ready for shipping Friday. I don't know how many they have to ship before they will get to mine though. Now I'm getting excited!

    Re: My CTS Being Built Now

    That is Great

    Ordered my 2008 CTS in June. I called the dealer today and got the order number, but he said he didn't know what stage it is in. So, I called Cadillac and gave them the order number and they say it is in production. What exactly does this mean time wise.....when can I expect the vehicle to be delivered?

    Oh, another question. Since I ordered mine prior to the changes on the order guide, particularly the J55 performance brake code, will I automatically have that option added. It's not on my build sheet from June. I ordered a fully loaded:
    3.6 DI 304hp
    MX7 AWD
    PDQ Premium Lux pkg
    Y42 All season Performance pkg (originally J55 part of this group)
    P63 18" high polish wheels
    41U Black Raven
    194 Ebony leather

    Thanks in advance,

    Re: My CTS Being Built Now

    dadr,

    I wish I could answer your questions but I don't have the answers about your options. I know once the car goes into production, it starts in the body shop where the space frame is welded together, including the doors. Then it goes through the paint system. After paint it goes to general assembly where everything is assembled onto the body. After assembly it gets filled with fluids, alignment done and quality checks done. Last is a run-up in a test booth. All this takes three to four days, then it's readied for shipment. Since mine was in the body shop today, it should be read for shipment the end of the week. It will still have to wait behind all the others that haven't been loaded on trucks yet. I hope to see it by the end of next week.

    gm_eng,

    Congratulations. I would be getting excited too!
    I hope my car is not too far behind yours.
    You must post a few photos when you receive your car.

    Regards,
    Rab.

    This must mean that option B20 (part of PDQ) is no longer on constraint.

    That's right. The supply issue with option B20 must be cleared now. Believe it was related to a color-matching problem with the option B19 wood trim applied to the door panels, center console and IP.
    GM Canada advised today that my car is in "delay mode" due to 'a problem with the wood trim'. (Oh really?!!). I got the impression they didn't really know, and that they'll be stating this right up to the day the car is delivered to the dealership. I suppose it all adds to the suspense... but I'd really like to know what the heck's going on with my order!

    Re: My CTS Being Built Now

    My salesman contacted me yesterday and confirmed my event code status was 3400 - order broadcasted for production. He said mine will be the first CTS his dealership will get because since my order was a "sold" unit, it's production got bumped ahead of their "stock" units. I wonder how many people will be in and out of it before I see it.

    Flyin-Ryan - I'm in O'Fallon. I work at the Wentzville plant. You bet I'll ask my saleman to try to keep everyone out of it and driving it!

    And WHAT are you paying for this unit (excuse me for asking)? NONE of you has said squat about price. Or doesn't money matter?
