There has been no official date released at the moment. I wouldn't expect one before next year (calender year 2006).

Keep working on him to get the standard! Way more fun, especially for a roadster!

MS Solstice asked the following elsewhere:

MS Solstice said:
I'm new to the forum, and I have a question about ordering my car. I was at the dealer the next morning after the "Apprentice", and signed the papers to order my car, but I need an automatic transmission. So, I wait.....and wait. Does anyone know when they expect the dealers to be able to order the automatics? I appreciate the help.
I said no official news yet, and pointed out thsi thread. Anyone have any new news?

I thought Small Dealer said the first day you could order an automatic was 9Jan..that was when the dealer could place the order against an allocation????

Small Dealer???

uh-oh, can you wait for an order to be built an shipped? Takes a while. Best we've seen was 2 months, but most take a lot longer. GL

Probably, we do have another car, a Yukon, and the one that's on it's last leg is a 1992 Pontiac Firebird, what can we say, GM all the way!

Found Smaller Dealers quote for the auto release date:

Solstice 5-Speed Automatic Transmission (MX0) ... will be available for order placement as of Monday, January 9, 2006. MSRP for this option is $850.

of course this assumes your dealer has a solstice allocation...or where he wants to put you in priority against his other solstice orders.....and whether or not there are any constraints as well....

I'm number one on the dealer's list for the auto, and I actually got to sit in one Thursday. Boy, that got the itch going! It was all black, including the interior, and it was beautiful. I can't wait!

Dad got his yesterday :lol

Well my dad went out and bought a mazda a couple months ago (the special series???) so he said he was happy - anyway the dealer called him yesterday and told him his silver Solstice was in (manual trans though) he gave me a call- I told him go take a look. Well he did - left the 2 month old Mazda there:yesnod: and drove home his new Solstice - Yeah - he said mom can't drive the stick - but she has her own car.. Told him I will buy it from him when he wants to trade it in. Dad is 70.


Cheers All - Thanks for all the good words-----------------:grouphug:
