I confess Rocksfly. The colour references were for your benefit.
It was intended to 'lighten the moment' for you. I doubt I'd be as patient if My White Overland with Beige interior turns out to be something different.
I do think though that you were the unlucky 1 in 1000. So thanks for taking the hit for the team
I think luck definitely plays a part. Whilst many forum members have disappointments (or horror stories), many more have had a good run and that is all I want.
I bought a car in a few years ago that was an absolute lemon, and I'd waited nearly four months for that. I was so keen for that car to be good. I wont say what make, but the colour was Citric Acid. For those that recognise that colour name will know the company and car model.
Good luck to us all.
I'll keep watching the progress of mine and others through the build and delivery timeline. I am surprised how many are for Brisbane owners, all ordered around the new year.
