    Freight for the ending C7’s was/is $1,095. Yes WWR, very nice that starting with the C8’s, the transportation delivery charge is not longer an add on, but included in the base price.

    For the C8, the delivery charge would have been even more, probably more like around $1,200, for as we separately have learned, only 10 C8’s go on a fully loaded transporter instead of the 11 C7’s that used to fit on the same truck.

      So I called my dealer today to add YZC - Carbon Flash Metallic painted Mirrors. That went with no in with no problem. Then I say I want to change my 5ZU body colour High Wing to the 5ZZ Carbon Flash Metallic High Wing. He says the system wouldn't accept that change without adding a required option. I said that doesn't sound right, he says he even went to his manager and they couldn't enter it without adding a required option, the cheapest being black lug nuts? This doesn't sound right to me. Can anyone comment on this?

        Never heard that before. Maybe it is true? If so, sure would be a new item to me.

          I knew there had to be a reason to demand $225 for black lug nits.

            I agree this does not make sense. What is a "required option"? Bit of an oxymoron isn't it? Any old option? A mystery option only known to GM?

            Canada's #1 dealer probably would not have had this problem

              I remain unconvinced that this is a real GM requirement. Is this a “dealer policy?”

                Sparro's salesman looks OK so it can't possibly be that

                  Canadians. Does the proposed 10 percent Canadian luxury tax on vehicles over $100k have any effect on your purchase? My build comes in at $101k so I will be talking to my dealer before the allocation is picked up.
                  With some provinces sales taxes this could add 25 to 30 percent to a C8.

                    It's likely more a software issue than anything else. GM Canada uses a different system than the U.S.

                      It would if mine was near that. I'd try and do it so it remains under 100K and add other options later. Like the high wing etc. 10% of 100K is 10K not an insignificant amount!

                        I just confirmed with Mike Furman that there are sometimes circumstances whereby adding one single option, requires a second one. Example, adding a microfiber steering wheel to a 1LT requires the addition of a second option, specifically the purchase of comp seats.

                        However barring such “paired” options, merely adding a single option that is not paired, does not require the customer to go out and choose another option within the U.S. He doubts that this is required within Canada, but can not say that with 100% confidence.

                          I was in contact with another Canadian Corvette Salesman and he says there is no requirement to add options in order to get the 5ZZ Carbon Flash High Wing. I emailed my salesman earlier today telling him this is not right and he has to figure it out. Haven't heard back as of yet.

                              I talked to my salesman a few minutes ago. He tried again and says the system won't allow the 5ZZ without selecting another option. Is it because I have the silver spoke wheels selected instead of the Q8Q carbon flash? I have a set of aftermarket wheels on order that I will swap out because I don't really like the stock ones and don't wanna pay the upgraded price for carbon flash. Anyway he tells me I'm welcome to swing by the dealership anytime to go over the build in person and see what happens when he hits the submit button. I'll probably swing by tomorrow since it's not too far away from me.

                                My salesman just texted me and said he finally has confirmed pricing for all of my options. He will be sending it to me shortly. I'll post it up if there any new info for fellow Canadians.
