Just because you buy off the lot doesn't mean you can't or shouldn't get what you want. Look at other dealers in your area via on-line inventories. I am lucky being next to two major cities (and four states) and there's plenty to choose from. Except these days with combined dealerships and closures, there isn't as many as before.
I've always purchased off the lot and gotten what I wanted and even more without paying for it. I find this to be a good haggling tool to not order and get options at a lower price or no extra charge because you didn't want it to begin with. I have no loyalty to any dealership, just to myself and to pay the price I want. Unfortunately the higher price vehicles are harder to haggle with but I know which dealers no to bother with because they have plenty of customers paying sticker and more. I have the cash and just not an idiot to donate extra cash to dealers.
