    Question RPO Codes

    Does anyone know what the following RPO codes really mean?

    WD01 - Identification start of platform containment vehicles
    WD1 - Identification - Pilot Vehicle
    My 2008 has both and the build date is 2007-05-22 so it looks like the very beginning of the 2008 model run

    Thanks

    Re: RPO Codes

    It took a lot of digging for me to find out about WD0 as mine has this RPO as well (built 2007-07-20).

    WD0 - Platform Containment Vehicle is a Pre-production MVB (Manufacturing Validation Build) Unit.

    Not many of these out there. It was finally the engineering group that was able to provide an answer.

    Don't know about WD1.

    Re: RPO Codes

    Here is a link to a Corvette forum that talks about WD0, WD1 and WD2. I got my information directly from GM and this site seems to be in line (at least on WD0). This may shed some light on your other code as I suspect GM uses these among various lines.

    This may also explain why my car was shipped to the GM Proving Grounds (which coincidentally was a dealer car afterwards).

    Re: RPO Codes

    Thanks DD. I wouldn't have known where to start looking. I suspected something like that because the VIN database shows there were only 149 of those for my model and year with that code and overall only 8 matching my exact options list. I purchased mine as a CPO with very low mileage in March 2008 for a considerable discount and I am essentially the first owner, since CarFax says it was first registered as a GM corporate fleet vehicle.
    I hope this means they took exceptional care with the build. Except for a few very minor issues, the car has been flawless.

    Re: RPO Codes

    Good to hear you've had a mostly positive experience. Had mine just a couple of months now and it has been anything but problem free. Pretty much all the repairs have been completed so I'm hoping this is the start of a new chapter. If I had to pay for the repairs, it would total nearly $10K now. My problems weren't in the "build" though so I'm also hoping there was care taken assembling everything.

    Re: RPO Codes

    Thanks for the info! I just purchased a WDO 2013 CTS-V, which appears to be #10 off the line for 2013 and then went to the GM fleet for 14,000 miles. Got it for a great price, so here's hoping they got the bugs worked out on the first 9!
