Can you show us some pics? All of the ones I've seen so far were indoor shots. Thanks.

My Jeep at the time of delivery is posted up above you. ^

Here's an outdoor shot. I haven't taken any real "beauty" shots as of yet.

Of course, the upside is you get a three-month jump on delivery, cutting the waiting time in half.
Considering how much stuff they're probably going to 'fix' in the 2012 from the 2011, I'd be very inclined to wait until at LEAST November-December to buy one, just to make sure you don't get one of the first few buggy batches.

This is the primary reason I'm waiting until the 2012 models arrive. I'm hoping they figure out fixes for what appear to be the 2 biggest issues on the new WK2s (Quadra-Lift and Key Fob failures).
