    There are several variables that can impact this timing.
    • First, your dealer must have an allocation.
    • Second, some options, colors, etc can be on constraint - meaning only a limited number are available (could be none). For example, B20 is currently not available and the outlook is so bad that they have decided to build ordered cars without that option.
    If everything is in alignment, it could take as little as 2-3 weeks from order entry to your production week. In my case, order was on or about 5/24, but they did not start building production 08s until July 16. Then my order was on hold with the B20 option issue until GM decided to build them without. My car was built on or before 8/4.

    OK, so basically, Im safe in saying that since I ordered it about 2 weeks ago, it's wont be hear next week

    I believe B20 was the wood steering wheel. I believe there was some delays with that particular product.

    GM decided to ship the cars out without the wood on the steering wheel for those that ordered it that way and I believe they got a 150 dollar credit or something like that..

    Ditto to everything Zymurgy said above.

    Re the order for my '08 CTS, here is the chronology and outlook, as it stands today:
    - June 6th: Placed order for vehicle.
    - June 28th: Vehicle preferenced (event code 2500).
    - Week of July 23rd: Advice received that order was in delay mode due to a vague 'issue' with option B20 (wood accent trim for steering wheel & shift knob). Decided to wait & see for a while, hoping the problem with B20 would soon clear. Received zero additional info from GM in this matter.
    - Aug. 13th: Decided to delete option B20 on my order after learning via this forum (thanks gm_eng) that the problem with option B20 was going to linger until at least the end of September.
    - Aug. 20th: Learned today that my order has advanced and that the TPW (targeted production week) is August 27th (next week).
    - With any luck, my car will be delivered to the dealership by Sept. 18th. That timing would be okay, as I'll be arriving home on Sept. 20th after a 3 1/2 week biz trip to N. Africa.
    - Sept. 21st: Hope to be saying "Goodbye '02 Olds Aurora 4.0", and "Hello '08 CTS DI AWD".

    By that time I should long be enjoying posted photos of '08 CTS vehicles delivered to forum members such as Zymurgy and gm-eng.

    Cheers
    Rab.

    Rumor on street is that it will be in 3000 status around first of month.

    That would be a pretty safe bet. About the only way it could happen that fast would be if the dealer already had the identical car on order as a non-sold order.

    B20 is the genuine Sapele Wood Trim on Shift Knob and Steering Wheel. It is part of the PDQ option package and can also be ordered separately.

    FYI, Sapele wood is also known African Mahogany. It is a reddish-brown wood that in many ways is very similar to Mahogany.
