    My order went in on March 21 and my V Coupe is scheduled with a TPW of April 21. Who knows when it will get out here to L.A.

    It's going to be every bit of 8 weeks total before it gets here.

    Mine was six weeks from order to delivery. I live close (240 miles) to the factory and it took two weeks for delivery. Go figure!

    It usually takes 4 weeks or more to get out here to California.

    I missed the cutoff. My salesman sent me an email stating GM will not accept anymore orders. I had planned to put order in on the 5th.

    PM me what color and options you want and I can run a nationwide dealer locate for you to see if the car you want is out there. I have found at least 5 Vs out there for forum members in the last few days built very closely to their ideal V. I can try to find yours as well. Let me know.

    Well, I was one of those who waited until the last possible minute to pull the trigger. Got to the magic numbers on the deal and trading my '09 sedan, wrote the check, and then got the dreaded call from my sales guy--with the information that Shaun had already posted. DOH!!

    Good news is that Shaun helped locate a few Vagons to my specs not far from me, so there's still a high likelihood of me joining the ranks of the 6MN Vagon unicorn club. I'll keep y'all posted.

    GM-4-LIFE, thanks for your contributions to this community!

    Has anyone's production week slipped? I went from having a production week of 4/14/14 for the past month to not being sure when it may be completed. Maybe Im reading into it too much, but its a bit of disappointing order news to start the week...

    *Edit, my question wasn't very well worded. I guess the car is still slated for production this week, they just aren't sure of a specific date for the VIN or shipping. False alarm! I just want to thank the Cadillac/GM reps on the boards for putting up with me!

    If you want you can PM me your order number and I can tell you exactly when the car is built and I can send you the VIN # as soon as the car is built. It should be built sometime tomorrow.

    I went to Tropical Cadillac (the dealer in FL with 14 Vagons on the lot) and wanted to order a wagon. The GM there said not possible, window is closed (this was on 4/16). In desperation, I called James Quinn 2x and left him messages that I got his contact info from the CTS-V forum and I was ready to order NOW. He never called me back. I ordered a V wagon from a dealer in VA couple days ago, but I suspect they don't know what they are doing (they had 1 V in stock, but not my specs)... and I probably will be getting a "we're sorry" call any day.

    Does anyone know and GM Lifer, in particular... why o why doesn't the GM web site show inventory beyond about 100 mile radius of the zip code? I've literally spent hours zip coding the entire US map and looking up inventory of Vagons. Is there any way to look up inventory nationally??

    I ordered a plum vagon, 6 MT, but don't think the order will stick. Tropical Cadillac in Bradenton had the car in stock, but it had 160 miles on it and that's a deal breaker for me. If my order doesn't go (which I'm sure will be the case), what's the best route to find inventory?

    I have GMS through my wife, so pricing is easy and dealer "deal" not a factor.

    Last day to order a V wagon was 3/21. Surprised they were even able to place the order for you. My advice is buy whatever you can find on the ground at a dealer, as this is the last year and once they are gone, you will be out of luck. Topical may be your only option. General manager there seems very nice to deal with. I have already exchanged emails with him.

    I keep asking them for the order # and it's been 2 days now, still waiting. The sales guy told me his boss was sure order can be placed, though I think you are right and they just don't know better.
    I might be back to Tropical if all else fails. I've been lusting for a Vagon for 3 years, just sitting on the fence and enjoying my day dreams. I did find a few SALVAGE V's that came out of Bondurant race school (2013's) with about 2,500 miles and they are really aggressively priced. So I'm also conflicted about just buying one for $20K less and then I can be oblivious to color or options. Sigh. There's always the C7 and minivan twofer as an option, instead of a vagon, if all else fails.

    Take the 160mi car and embrace the long warranty. Every day you wait your options are getting slimmer.

    What's the problem with a car that only has 160 miles on it?
    If the vehicle has the options you want you should really give it another think.
