I am eager to see who has the first pic of the 08 Acadia in their own driveway. Mine is being built as we speak, but being in Florida I am sure I will loose out to someone in Michigan. Wish it would get here soon, as I am not into this delayed gratification thing. :blob:

Would love to hear what your dealer has to say, as mine has just been very vague up to this point. I wish there was a way to track these things with out having to do through the dealer.

The issue right now is that you have the Buick Open vehicles being built so all other vehicles are being held up because of that - also, if you ordered the White Diamond exterior color, expect a little bit more of a wait time as this color is on restriction for both GMC and Buick. Your dealer is probably being vague in his answers because the answers are not always black/white from the factory.

Remember, patience is a virtue; the factory is building them as fast as possible...demand is even higher than expected. Expect to see the first 2008 pictures around middle of July to late July...

They are building 08 Acadias ... just got off GM-Dealerworld web site and did a locate of 08 Acadias. Dealers within 1,000 mi radius of Buffalo, NY show that there are at least 4 VIN's with a status 3800 (produced). 2 - Dark Crimson, 1 Summit White and 1 Carbon Black Metallic. Looks like they want to build the new colors to start

Dark Crimson, eh? I guess that's one of their new colors? That'll be nice to see.

NY Joe, it's a new color, with a new code. From what I've been able to tell, it's going to be closer to the "Black Cherry" color on the CX-9s.

The white one might be mine. Checked with dealer today and it is waiting for a truck to transport it to me (Vestal, NY- 200 miles from Buffalo). Can you shot me the VIN of the white one?

I bet it will look like the Sonoma Red that is available on the Pontiac Torrent - it is a nice wine color, deeper than the Red Jewel, but not that purple color available on the Enclave.

I'm jumping out of my skin with anticipation. Stopped at the dealer's today and he showed me the invoice he received showing that our 08 was built this week and was shipped Thurs (6/21). I know better to be too overly confident as I've been following the posts of Cravenfan and agonizing with him through his frustrations, but the dealer said that there's a chance we might see it by the end of next week. Hope others that also put in their 08 orders around the same time frame are getting similar news. Keep is all in the loop. IMO it's exciting to see anyone's post when they have received news showing their order is progressing and getting closer to delivery.

hey guys, I dont think I should do this but shoot me some vins and if you guys can find out the CSN numbers on your cars I can tell you where they are in the system, if we have started building them yet. Just dont tell anyone im doin this, just incase it pisses off the bosses.
dont do it muddyz, you never know who is reading these forums and we don't want you doing anything that will jeapordize your job.

It will be interesting to find out whether the $1,000 Conquest rebate will apply to '08 Acadias. I would think it should since you can get it on the '08 Enclave, but I've seen nothing to confirm either way. Whoever picks up their '08s first, please let us know.
