Re: Factory Order....Wrong Colour...!!??!!

I would absolutely demand a coin holder or walk away (or perhaps a deluxe coin holder at cost)!!!

Re: Factory Order....Wrong Colour...!!??!!

The charcoal coordinates better with the interior, especially the dash and seat piping. I'd take the deal and be very happy with what they've offered. You'll be pleased with the final outcome, and in my opinion, the Mineral Gray doesn't work quite as well as with the saddle interior.

Re: Factory Order....Wrong Colour...!!??!!

After a couple of days with the Charcoal it is definitely growing on me. I've got the Jeep parked right outside my office window right now and it definitely looks more Gray than Black which is good...

It's kind of distracting me from actually getting anything done at work...I should probably park it somewhere else! Maybe next to the Sales Guy in our office who has a 2011 Explorer...my favourite quote about the 2011 Explorer from one of these forums: "It looks like someone threw up in the future and sent it back for us to deal with."

Re: Factory Order....Wrong Colour...!!??!!

Regardless of whether you keep the ride or not, this thread may have started with shock, but its been fun to read.

Now if only we could somehow link this with the On/Off road tire thread, that'd be something special.

Good luck with your decision.

Re: Factory Order....Wrong Colour...!!??!!

So I spent the day observing the subtle changes in the DC Pearlcoat on my(?) Jeep parked outside my office window.

Cloudy - Dark Grey
Dark, Raining, Wet JGC - looks more like black
Sunny - Medium Grey!

I gotta say it is pretty cool how it changes colour in different lighting.

I am demanding floor mats with coin holders built in. This is non-negotiable.

Yup - That's what's fun about Pearl Coats. My Rugged Brown Summit changes color quite a bit based on lighting.

Yup, happy ending (not the way one of the posters was describing though...)

I'm definitely good with the dark charcoal and will post pictures from camping this weekend soon....
