I ordered within 30 minutes of the opening. Did everything I was suppposed to. Got a car. Is one of the first 1000 NO. Does it matter NO. What does matter is that the seats may not be two tone and On Star may not be included. I ordered the car because I like it. If you ordered the car for the badge maybe you need reconsider your purchase! The process was a mess GM scrrewed it up an dthe dealers screwed it up further. Does it matter. NO you ordered a car and are getting a car. Maybe GM will decide all the cars ordered will get a badge. Oh wait they already do its called a VIN #.
