Why dont you tell your dealer or stealer which ever you want to call them, that if you buy a used seat, complete seat if they will reimburse you the money, since you should still have warranty on it, that yeah you dont have to wait any more just a thought try it might work beats waiting another 8 months.

That really sucks. Not that it matters, but do you have people in your back often. It's my kids for me. Other than myself crawling around back there to clean, no adult goes there.
In any case,you should not have to wait 8 months for this part.
I like the seat replacement suggestion.

Good luck-hope it comes soon.

welcome to gto ownership my friend. should have bought a corvette. i feel your pain. it took me 3 -4 weeks to get a key. one that was "laser-cut" but in all actuality it was cut on CNC mill that i'm pretty sure was as simple as punching in the VIN number to get the interpolation of the machine to do it's thing. i'm agreeing with that used seat deal or a used part off of a seat!

I was informed if you need a part and it is not available or will take some time to get to the dealer, GM has authorized after market parts be used. In this case I would think aftermarket parts are not available.

This sort of story was one of the reasons I got rid of the GTO. As time goes on I look for the parts to be harder to come by.
