Not a single dealer or even the Pontiac marketing department knows how this happens.

Each dealership gets 5 cars, but is it a max 5? The first 1000 are internet based and not dealership based right?

My dealer here said "oh just come in sometime this afternoon or tonight"

Is there a first post im missing? Pontiac doesnt know how what happened?

As far as the cars its a max 5 they are not even guaranteed 5. There are 2000 dealers going after 1000 cars. Your dealer may not realize that, but if you want a chance at the car you better be there at 2

Yes for early order thing each dealer who signed up can get 0 to 5 Sols in this first run.

There will be many more Sols after this Apprentice thing.

Ive got to say, my dealer, when I talked to them yesterday, at least knew that watching the apprentice was important and that there was an EOP program, but they didnt sound confident in what was going on, Im not going for EOP, but she(saleswoman) said she had another guy coming in to do so, and I would be afraid that he had better be very knowledgable about the process, because he might have to walk them through it as well, what paralyzes all these dealers? the ones we have here with us are probably the most knowledgable in the US about solstice, but whats happening to all the rest!? I think maybe the low allocation(max 5 and not guaranteed) is causing a lot of dealers to treat the program as a red-headed step child or something. Its disappointing :willy:
