scorpion, thanks for pointing this one out though. Very interesting!
It's not that I am in the dark about it. I just avoiding telling people false information. I think I recall that phone call. It seemed like you never believed a thing I said
I posted this in our forum a few weeks ago. Gm China has been stating the MPIII will be out soon since January of this year. In January they said April, in April they said June. in June they said august, in august they said October and now it’s two weeks anytime I ask. I have delayed several sea orders this year waiting for the MPIII release. Then giving up and asking for my order to ship without as I can’t wait any longer. I am once again debating on having my next sea order ship without them as they are not ready to go yet. I have seen pictures of finished MPIII so it will happen soon. But until I have some on the water coming to me it’s still a waiting game. GM China has promised the dealers will have stock before any release. They are also stating they may get out of direct selling to the public and will sell only through the dealers. This would certainly improve their customer relations and make the company grow. My personal prediction is they will ship to all the dealers and then release the MPiii on their website before the dealers receive their stock. That way they get the product out to the dealers and grab all the first round sales. I have been a GM dealer for two years now and I have already seen many things they do that are only in their interest and not the dealers. Who knows how it will all turn out? I am hoping for the best. All I know is if you buy from GM Canada your warranty is sound, elsewhere I would at least send a test email to see if you receive a response. Personally I know I will be prepared to support my customers as I am ordering extra cables, controllers, hall sensors, etc. That way I know I will be ready for any issues that may arise at the release.
Heres a little bonus, I believe a picture of the new wiring harness. But who knows if this will even be the wire harness. I have also seen other pictures of the MPIII and the wires look a little different but do look streamlined. If so it will be a simple hookup. Each plug can only fit into its mated plug. Should be an error free setup which is good as they rarely provide any installation documents.
