I think I ordered the wrong color... HELP

I ordered my Summit 2/1/11. Since I ordered it i'm afraid I ordered the wrong color. I have seen 2 black Summit's in person and they look great. I can't imagine the mineral grey looking as good as the black.
Is there anyway a dealer would do a transfer of colors, ie- a black for a mineral grey? Mine is scheduled to arrive next Thursday 4/7/11.

I'm a fan of mineral, to each his own though. You might end up waiting for a black one with the specs you want.

Stick with your order. This week, right? See it in person before you let panic set in. MG is spectacular.

Black rocks, but it is everywhere and is a PITA to keep clean.

There is both a mineral gray summit and a brilliant black summit in transit to Lake Norman in Cornelius, NC. Take a look when they arrive and decide which color you like most.

Re: I think I ordered the wrong color... HELP

The wife and I were up there yesterday. They just transferred the black one in from another dealership. The mineral grey one was not on the lot yet. The dealership is about 1 mile from my house so i'll keep my eye on it... heck, it might be on the same truck as mine... the dealership i ended up buying from is about 20 miles north via I-77.

And there is already a mineral gray summit on the lot at Black Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Statesville, NC.

Edited- just looked at the VIN number on the website (pasted here-
1J4RR6GT4BC660991) and compared it to my VIN number (pasted here- 1J4RR6GT4BC660991)

Re: I think I ordered the wrong color... HELP

I picked up my Mineral Gray/Saddle last Thursday in the rain. I wasn't so sure I had picked the right color until the sun came out! WOW! The metallic Mineral Gray is stunning in the sun. I'm very happy. (and I have a black Solstice GXP and new black Mustang GT, so I know black!)

Re: I think I ordered the wrong color... HELP

I thought I had ordered the wrong color Overland too - white. I live a long way back in the woods and white has always been the best color for low maintenance and looks since my car remains really dirty/muddy about 95% of the time. The dealer gave me a mineral gray one to drive until my Overland arrived (next week I hope) - every time I looked at this car I absolutely loved the color - the more light on it the better. But holy cow it looks TERRIBLE when dirty, especially when it gets rained on - showed every drop. So even though I LOVE the mineral gray - and it would be my first choice if living in the city - I realize that the white is a much better color for where I live. I bet you love yours too!
