Welcome to the Cadillac V-Series Forums!

Blackwing Order Tracking - 2022 Model Year

Well...shit...I tried deleting a couple posts out of the old order tracking thread and I apparently nuked the whole damn thread! :r :hb

NOTE: the order tracking system is for U.S. based orders only. I can only view orders placed with dealers in the U.S.
NOTE: I will only track ONE order per member. If you have orders in at multiple dealers, pick one...

Shitting baby ducks is a visual I will not be able to get out of my head now.
I, for one, will NOT be doing a GIF search for this term (as funny as it might be to actually see what comes up). I have more than my share of cringy ads and suggested-follows popping up in my social media feeds. 😬 🤣

Nope, no CF. Our builds only differ in seat belt color, wheel selection, and sunroof (I got one).
It's interesting to try and deduce what the hold up is. Mine is in the same range (486) and I've got the ceramic brakes and the sunroof.

I agree with this...... I would be shitting baby ducks if my car was sitting for months on end, sorry everyone!

Honestly I think the whole damage while sitting thing is blown out of proportion. Mine was built 2/2 and didn’t get delivered till 4/14 so it sat for 2.5 months. There was even bird poop on the paint in two areas.

I took it to the detailer after and there is no sign of any damage to the paint whatsoever and I’ve inspected it with a detailing light to a ridiculous degree.

Normally cars would sit for who knows how long at the factory and then at port and then for months and months at a dealer with some kid who washes them all down monthly with the same bucket for all the cars and a dirty brush. I think letting the dealer PDI your car will likely do more damage to the paint than the months of sitting will.

Despite all the fears I don’t think any members have noticed any paint or other damage from prolonged sitting.

You are probably right, and it didn't happen to me but I think its more of a mind thing to everyone waiting....

My car has only been sitting built for 2 months, but it's really sucking the excitement out of the air. It's my first ever brand new car, and the last 'used' car I bought was 10 years ago.

I'm sure my attitude will change when I see it in person, but it's just frustrating at this point. My wife wants a new kitchen and has been hinting that we forget about the car and use the down payment for that, but I've been fending her off so far. Can afford both, but she sees the car as a luxury item as as it'll be our 3rd car (my weekend/fun car), so she can take it or leave it.

Just curious why some of us with a tpw of 5/9 are still stuck at 3400 while others got built. I was wondering if it was build related or some associated constraint. Options I had were Shadow Grey Metallic, manual (not an option I know), CCBs, tech bronze wheels and PDR, mid level performance seats and red seat belts. Any of these on constraint? I know Shadow Grey may be but my original tpw was 4/18. Are manuals on constraint?😳
I'm a 5/9, manual as well. Not built yet. PDR, no sunroof, no CCB, mid grey seats, bronze wheels, parking package.

Road trip? I've got bolt cutters, just need a truck and trailer. We could deliver the 10 or so cars for our area haha
I have access to a 3 car hauler and the rig for it. I’m down. Bolt cutters won’t be necessary. If gm can’t get cars out in a timely fashion what makes you think they have security. Lol

I heard manuals were on constraint. T or F? I don’t know for sure.
My build was for a A10.

I was under the impression that 3400 meant all the parts for your car were accounted for and ready to build. The constraints come in much sooner in the process. But, it's a whole new world out there now, so who knows.

None of the Goat Rodeo has bothered me thus far, with 2 exceptions.

1) Cars that have higher production numbers making more progress or delivered than cars built first. In my case, I have no CF, nothing on constraint, so there is 0 explanation for this. I am 4BW 46-320 and I am stuck with 2-3 other cars in the high 280's and low 300's yet to be delivered.

2) When even your salesman gets brick walled to info, including no info from the distract manager.

All it would take some basic info, like hey, your car is waiting on the following parts, its going to be another 4-5wks. OK, cool.

At this stage who really knows? Dealers don't seem to have a clue. Cadillac doesn't know when an order will ship after it is built, etc etc.
We might as well quit tracking and just be surprised when the dealer calls us up and says I got your car.
