Hi guys. I'm new here, please take care of me :bow:
I had placed an order in for a VE GTS with sunroof and red interior on 22/08/06. At that time the dealer told me the car can be deliver middle Sep, but in middle Sep they told me there are too many orders as result the car will be deliver to me middle Oct . I went to the dealer ship today, they said because the sunroof has running out so the car should be can deliver to me middle Nov. That means i must wait another month.

Just want to know, Is it true that HSV running out sunroofs?
What should i do?

Thanks guys ..

I havnt heard of anything to do with a shortage of sunroofs. Things like that do happen though. A few weeks ago their was a shortage of axles for a little while. So I heard anyway.

Guys I was thinking of ordering a SSV with Sunroof and a few other factory mods and was told it could take upto 5-6 weeks.. So that might mean something. I was also told that a big killer in waiting time is sunroofs across the range

I never completed my apprenticeship as a motor trimmer (idiot i know, long story!!):bang: But jeez, I can fit a sunroof in no time. Can only guess the supplier has run out of stock? Hollandia i think did holdens but thats just a vague memory, so dont shoot me down if im wrong there.:thumbsup:
Love to see some pics when ya get it though, best looking one of the HSV's that ive seen from pics so far. Hang on it'll be worth the wait:w00t:

Never install a sunroof after market - you're asking for trouble. At least the factory fitted job will be fully warranted.

And to the OP. The best person to ask about the delay would in fact be the people you're already talking to - your dealership. You really don't think they're putting your off for another reason do you? Think of the commission they'll be getting from a GTS. They're keen as mustard to sell it to you mate!

Oh, and for heaven's sake - PLEASE learn basic English spelling and Grammar!
