There is consensus every month, for all models. In the consensus, the dealers have to come to a 'consensus' agreement with GM on the quantities of vehicles that they will order for a future month of production.fyrcaptain said:So there will be a consensus each month?
If a dealer is allocated only 2 Z-06s, then the cars may not be "consensed" until the 3rd or 4th quarter if not in the first go around in the second quarter?
Does this mean each month he has to check, or is the order submitted into the system and GM calls them when appropriate automatically?

Velocity Yellow, with Ebony interior, the upgrade package (2LZ I believe), NAV System, Standard wheels, and XM radio.
The Sales Mgr told me they've received their first allocation and my order will be included! With a bit of luck, the car will be built in July!
I'll post more info as I get it.
If anyone is interested, yes, I'm selling the Z51 Machine Silver C6 Coupe. Send me a pm for details.
Thanks for the mention...yes I have cars in the 1st pull...it's going to be a long year, so hang in there -fyrcaptain said:Dogg, thanks !

Each week, the dealer sees the allocation of the consensed orders. Somehow the computer matches allocation with the dealer's orders that have been entered and within the available constraints, will then 'place' the order.
The 6 month outlook is a 'best guess' from the 12 month sales history of the dealer and anticipated ZO6 production volume.
To use an example, if a dealer consenses to 20 Cobalts for July production, some time in the first week, he might get allocation for 6 Cobalts, with constraints for 1 SS, 2 coupes and 4 Sedans. If he has orders for 5 SS coupes, only one of them will get 'placed'. The dealer has to have orders in the system for the other cars to get built to his specs, otherwise the computer will guess at how to configure the car. The next week he might get 6, and then 3 and then 5 to get to his 20.
The remaining 4 SS coupe orders will carry over to the next week, or until the dealer gets another SS constraint.
The dealer also gets to set the order priority for those 5 SS coupes, so that the higher priority order gets placed first. If they are all at the same priority level, the computer picks one at random to build.
Hope this helps. :thumb:
You are #1 as far as I am concerned!Zippy said:Sorry for the delayed reply. I've been away since Wednesday.
I'm number five at Stanford. They don't have prices yet. I'm planninjg on calling them Monday, and will post any new info.
The Bose premium sound system with CD player includes XM Satellite radio. It's available as an extra cost option with the 1LZ package, and is standard equipment with the 2LZ package.
