Post a reply in this thread if:

1. you've taken delivery of a First 888, and willing to share VIN, color, date and state.

2. you have found a First 888 either through the inventory search or by visit at a dealer.

This will save me combing through all the posts to find them. I will maintain and update the list and post it as I can. Keeping fingers crossed I don't have to edit the last line. :rofl:

Also give me any input on other items you might like to see included in the list.


6=V6=base model
msrp 27595 = no options
msrp 29765 = comfort & sound + premium packages

8=V8=GT
msrp 31395 = premium package + all-season tires
msrp 31845 = premium package + sport package

exterior colors self-explanatory, no known stealth blue among 888
interior colors: red = two-tone, onyx/red; onyx = black

At this time (1/21/09) there are known to me only just over 100 of the first 888 as forum members. Check yourself against the list. The remaining unsolds list is undergoing maintenance. I'm still missing a few as to their actual config and what dealer they went to, those numbers are included - any info would be helpful to complete the registry.

Funny, I'm betting on the last line to read a lot different after the drawing.

I see mine on there but the same dealer had one more...

#47
Black/Black
Premium package only
Carlsbad, CA.

There is another dealer close that has one as well. I will try and swing by to see which one it is. I know these arent sold but not everyone will post here that gets one so it would be good to add them to the lsit so we can see where they all are at least.

you can get most of the vins off the gts in the dfw area

most of them are a 888 car
Well, I really don't want to do ALL the sifting. That's where helpers come in handy. Check the list as I have updated once again. Here is the data I am collecting.

V60r V8
Exterior Color
Interior Color (note if cloth)onyx or red (=onyx/red)
member id (if purchased by a member here
date of delivery (see above)
State of dealer
MSRP (which will indicate which configuration of options are on car)

I am also putting in dealer names in the database - but won't post it as it could violate advertising rules. I figure the state is vague enough to post. So, if you decipher a list and want to send me info including teh dealer, send it in a PM instead of an open post. Thanks.

Enjoy the list

List updated as of now. Over one third of 888's now on list. Next editions will have to be split due to limitations on file size to upload. If you've got time on your hands and don't see your area represented ( I've got some from ME, MA, CT, RI, NH, NY, NJ, PA, OH, MI, NC, SC, GA, AL, TX, CA, FL but certainly not all by a long shot. It would be good to come up with all of these before they get to the dealer and sold. So any who can, search with the following and you'll get vehicles within 200 miles (up to 25)

http://www.gmbuypower.com/vehiclelocator/locateVehicle.do?isRankVehicle=true&sortType=vehicleRank&displayInTemplate=false&defaultpath=true&hostingSite=gmvs&maximumCount=25&make=pg&postalCode=XXXXX&proximity=200&proximityUnitOfMeasure=MILES&includeDuplicateVendors=true&searchCountry=US&submit=Submit&modelDesignator=2ec69&searchType=0&vendorId=112123.0&style=Sedan&zip=XXXXX&makeId=002&vehicleModel=/images/gmbp/16002/vehicle/2008/med/2008251.gif&year=2008&sellingSource=16&subModel=&subModelId=251&BAC=112123.0&modelId=085&pvc=207&mmc=2ec69&brand=G8 Sedan&model=G8 Sedan&type= &typeDescrip= &optionCode=&preferredOptions=&preferredColor=&style=Sedan&sty leDescrip=Sedan&styleId=Sedan

Copy and paste into Word so you can easily edit, subbing your zip for XXXXX in two places, 2EC69 returns GT's, 2ER69 (again in two sposts) returns V6's. You may need to remove spaces added by this site to get a seamless address, copy and paste into your browser - collect the data and post here or PM me. Thanks.

I would add that if you change maximumCount parameter to 50, you can have up to 50 listed in one query. 200 miles may be the maximum search radius.

It was encouraging to find mine on your list #287 with the right color, engine, interior and state. Now all it needs is the right zip code. Has been on train, I'm told, since Feb 27. Wish they had UPS shipment tracking on those trains.

Someone at solsticeforum was able to actually track train shipments. But it might discourage instead of encourage you - since rail cars get coupled and uncoupled waiting on consists and may actually sit more than they move.

Thanks for the GM Buypower link. Editing in the zip code works great since G8 is still not in the pull down menu from the main site.

Does anyone know when a vehicle shows up at GM buypower? Is it upon shipment out of Benecia or receipt by the dealer??
