I personally LOVE that 20" wheel, my local dealer has a Crystal Red Tintcoat XTS Premium with them on it and it looks phenomenal. I am probably going to get the 2014 XTS Turbo later this year with those wheels. Waiting to see the 14 CTS in person first though.
Rod, this is from a discussion group, but I believe it is generally correct:
When you place an order into the system the first step it goes to is 1100 (Preliminary) That means the order has passed GM's edit tables and is a valid "Buildable" order. It also is when an order # is generated and assigned to it. This order # is the one that will follow it until it is built. It also is what is used to make sure you have things like price protection in the case of a price increase between the order time and invoice time. 1101 is essentially the same thing as 1100. The only difference is 1101 is more of an internal code for GM. They both still mean that it is a preliminary order still. When your order gets accepted by GM for production it will move to 2000. Here is the brief list of Status codes that are applicable to an order as far as the customer is concerned.:
Order status codes:
1100 = Preliminary Order (Order passed GM edit tables but dealers has not received allocation to place order)
2000 = Accepted By GM (Dealer used allocation to place order into production)
2500 = Preferenced (Order pulled to the production system)
3000 = Accepted By Production Control (Order input into the production system)
3100 = Sequenced (Order sequenced for Production)
3300 = Scheduled For Production (Order is scheduled into the plant build cycle)
3400 = Broadcast (Order is sent to various build & supplier areas to bring order together)
3800 = Produced (Order is built and VIN# shows in the Dealer Order system now)
4150 = Invoiced (Order is invoiced to the dealer)
4200 = Shipped (Vehicle is shipped to the dealer or point of delivery)
5000 = Delivered To Dealer
6000 = Delivered To Customer
There are other codes but they are almost exclusively used internally by GM and have no real effect on the status of the order as pertaining to the customer.
When you order [any] GM vehicle you can call them and ask what the Status Event Code is, and they will give you one of the numbers above. This will help you figure out where your order is within the system.
Wow! I had no idea there was all of that involved! Thanks for the informative detail. I ordered 2 cars in my life, a '78 Buick Regal and a '90 Corvette, but wasn't aware of all those steps. All my other new cars, Cadillacs included, were purchased off the lot. Keep us posted as to your progress and definitely give us your thoughts and experiences with the car once you have it. I'm really anxious to hear what it's like with that much more power, and also curious if they tighten the suspension up to deal with the power and how that feels.
