I noticed this morning we are up to 922 members. Earlier this week, we were sitting right on 900 members. Word about the Solstice must be starting to get around! We are going to be swampped after the apprentice airs next month! :)

Yeah, we're getting a lot of first time posters too, or lurkers. Thankfully so far most of them seem to be pretty knowledgeable so far or have read the FAQs.

Typically there is a 4-1 ratio of guests to members so yes we will start to really take off with the launch coming. FAQs do seem to be helping.

lol. Point taken, but you are both being modest. I have learned alot from the 'elite' posters listed on this page. Certainly more than I could have from Pontiac so far. If the Sol is the success we all hope it will be, it will be largely due to you guys and this forum (that includes sev others like SMan, et al, of course). Many thanks to all. :patriot:

Yes we have more people signing on, but when we did the poll about how many of the members were committed to buy on the first 1000 the figure never reached 100.
I believe not all 1000 will be sold based on that, plus if only 900 are members and we are suppose to be the die hards, the general population will not go out an rush to get this roadster, specialy if during the 30 second add they show the trunk.

2 more new members this afternoon! Were now up to 924!

I think GM will sell all 1000, but only a fraction will go to forum members. A lot of us are playing a waiting game. Some for more power. Others to get a better look at the Sky. Still others who want to be sure the car really meets their wants and needs before taking the plunge.

Let me get this straight, are you saying that there are only 130 dealers enrolled, that will have the ability to place an order from a customer with an ID # on April the 15th?.

The 1100 dealers was a value from before the 15th, which was the last deadline. So who knows how many have registered now though. Hey, one of you dealers on the forums, is there any way you guys can find out how many dealers are signed up?

Yes, but the 1100 dealers signed up was a value from March 4th. The last deadline was March 15th.
Then why he said it was extended until March 18th?.
I wish he would answer the question I asked him just to be sure.

Rereading that post looks like dealers have to register for the satellite broadcast ahead of time. This might be interactive, allowing them to ask q's in real time. One of the dealers will have to let us know for sure.
