I actually was tossing up between the Deep Cherry Red and Redline when placing my order back in May. I chose to play it safe and go with the Deep Cherry, mainly because I hadn't seen and photos of the Redline. After seeing photos of the Redline I started to wish that I had gone out on a limb and ordered the Redline.
I got a bit of a pleasant surprise when I called into the dealer to get an update on delivery only to be old that my "Redline" SRT has been built and is on a ship. After challenging the colour, a rather red faced salesman conceded that it is in fact not the colour that I ordered and said that Jeep had stopped producing the Deep Cherry Red SRT. I thought that he was BSing me, but i have heard that mentioned on here as well.
Luckily I am looking forward to the Redline, but it could have turned out to be really disappointing experience. I should have played along and acted all disappointed, demanding heaps of free stuff to make up for their mistake, but I am too honest and got a bit excited. Oh well, hindsight is all well and good, and I am now getting what I really want.
I also wanted the Spider Monkey rims, but didn't get he choice when ordering and was told that the Goliath rims were coming as standard. He then said that he had ordered 20sets of the spider monkeys that were due mid August and I could look at swapping them if I wanted.
I got my VIN from the dealer and sent it to Milous to get my build sheet. It turns out that I actually have the spider monkeys on the car....and it really is Redline.
Moral of the story, Jeep Au is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get. Sometimes it works in your favor, others not so.
I will be sure to post some pics for you.
