Thanks for confirming, it is/was time sensitive for sure. Now I don’t have to ask my dealer about it.
Yeah. I was very surprised.
So any idea when you guys gonna start rolling orders into 2023? Also just to make sure, us out of state guys wont lose our spot when it rolls over correct?I just read through the official document.
The way I understand it, the price protection does not cover rolling from one model year to another model year. It would only cover the price increases for the same model year that was ordered.
When a new model year is released, the orders don't roll over. The customer has to place a new order or the dealer can do it for them. Its a new order at that time so a new price protection would begin.
With that said, without getting into all of the dealer side details, the way this program works, it leaves the dealer open to losing $ or potentially even selling the vehicle at a loss. I would not be surprised if dealers start placing people on waitlists now, rather than placing orders in the system to sit at 1100 status..........
PDR honestly is worth its weight also for have a camera recorder for day to day use. Mine automatically records as soon as the car is started as a dash cam. My understanding is on the 5, the rear records too so you have two cameras iirc.Thanks for taking the time to look into this @1StunnaV, I appreciate it.
Yeah @Finally-a-V, my MSRP went up by exactly $12k too. Time to make some decisions. Do I really need that PDR for the 1-2x I’m going to be on a track? Carbon backed seats are definitely out.
@Daijoubu I read something similar about that on one of the Corvette pages. Who knows anymore, not just GM but everyone is changing the rules as we go along. It’s like the Wild West out there.
Oh and just for grins I spec’ed a 120 with my options and it came out to $148k. Yow!

It's not the same........... Sort of like drinking a diet soda, or decaf coffee...
Again, it's not the same or as good.......Just my .02 cents...........Obviously they are not the same...
Flipray's post said the PDR is worth it to have a camera recorder for 'day-to-day' use. For dash-cam purposes, SVR > PDR just because you have 360* views of the entire vehicle, not just the front one with data overlaid.
It's a common misconception that you need to have PDR to get the dash-cam feature and I'm just clarifying that.
