    So long story long. Last year I ordered a HC and after the whole debacle with the deliver and production I passed and bought a new C7. I kept it for 3 months and then bought a SS. Kept it for 8 months and am now back to the HC. Just so happens I "lucked" out and my dealer orders one a few months ago and is about to go into production. I went ahead had them out my name on it. Here's the question. I asked if I could change the color and they said no. What are the reasons why I couldn't? When I ordered mine last year I could change the color and opinions all the way up to the point that it entered whatever code it was(cannot remember). My thoughts are: 1) is it further along than they are leading me to believe it is? 2) do they not want to go through the trouble to change it (not certain how much trouble it could be). I was told they expected it around end of FEB/MAR time frame. I have been dealing with the dealer for years and trust them but cannot figure why they would mislead if they are at all? Appreciate the thoughts.

    Thanks for the feedback Far. I will give them a buzz on Monday. Good chance that is the case.

    I originally ordered sublime with black rims then changed to B5 and brass monkeys when they where available with no trouble at all. Was changed before D1 though,Good Luck!

    Well if it's been a couple months you're probably outta luck as they are producing the 16's at a much faster clip than the 15's. You really need to get the status to know for sure.

    Tell them to keep your car, get your money back and go find your dream car sitting on the showroom floor somewhere in the US...then go get it

    not a difficult situation...your not stuck with your order...........i ordered a SRT in 2011 and walked from it due to issues

    What was the color you initially ordered that they could not change? Post it . Someone on the site may want your color.
