I went out to my dealer today (So Cal) to check the part department's ability to fill LPOs for my Volt (Dealer provided options). I was specifically interested in the front window shade (option SFJ), the rear seat storage/barrier (option RWW), and the additional 120V charging cord (option RXL).
After a bit of exploring, my parts manager was able to find part numbers for SFJ and RWW, with prices that match what we've seen here (99 bottles of beer on the wall). As we've also seen, he found nothing for RXL.
But he also showed *NO* availability on any of the options.
For those on the other coast, are you folk able to order LPO and obtain LPO options? Is GM shorting all of us, or are they rolling out the options with the availability of cars?
Question on option RWW. I have the tan interior. Can I get a neutral leather barrier? Or are the only choices black cloth or black leather?
I asked my salesman about the front window shade as a Christmas gift for my nephew. He ordered it. If it does not come in I guess I'll just give him a picture of it and an IOU. You pay for it when it comes in.
Re: colors for the cargo barrier - only one color for cloth. Three colors for leather, dark (black?), neutral (with black trim) (so probably the same color for the barrier), and green (don't know if there is black trim with this).
The one cargo barrier that I saw was black and I thought it looked pretty good. Not sure what happens when you fold the seats down, if you have to remove it or what. Also what if you just fold one seat down, does the velcro require you to first unstick it before mvoing a seat?
