I got 3% under invoice via a group-buy that a local member negotiated with one of our local 'ships (Thanks, Chase!). Bought it at Bellevue Jeep.
I saw one matching your specs labeled as in transit to NW Jeep here in Beaverton. That may have been the one you got. I have been looking for a base overland with no CD player, but the first patch that arrived all the the dang cd player. Now it seems they are all coming in with the advanced tech package and no cd player. They offered to order one for me at invoice, but I don't want to pay a premium to order when I can get a few percent under invoice to by one off the lot.

Re: Looking for pics of the billet and granite

A few more Billet Silver pics from different angles.

This was the first of this Overland color combo at this dealer..lots of looks from other employees and customers walking the lot.

There was also a Jeep factory rep on site with a group of dealer employees in the lot, all around a 2014 Deep Cherry Red Ltd as she was doing a live tutorial/on site training session on the new JGCs. When I pulled around near them with the Billet Silver Overland, she approached me and asked if they can all take a closer look. Of course....

Re: Looking for pics of the billet and granite

Congrats ravenclaw!

I've got the billet on order and think it looks awesome in some pictures I've seen and a bit washed out in others. Also I find the front end looks VERY silverish. I'm in Australia and managed to see a black LTD in Oahu recently which I thought looked much better in person than I could of imagined. Is this the case with the billet, does it look much better in person? I have started wavering a little and thinking of changing color.

By the way I think yours looks awesome! Are you able to get a photo in lower light(shade)?

Cheers.

Wife and I struggled with color selection at first..the "darks" were too dark, especially for here in AZ with lots of sunshine, heat and dust. Not fans of white, roads are flooded here with white vehicles...true blue was an option but already have a blue vehicle...walked the dealer lots and closely looked at BilletSilver on 2013 Wranglers and some Chrysler passenger cars in sun and shade...had dealer pull a Billet Silver next to last year's Bright Silver for comparison..bottom line, as you can see, Billet Silver won out.
Upon seeing it today, our choice was validated..yes, wife and I, think it looks much better in person.
Just my opinion, it's always good to re-think a choice as you are, but many times, at least in my case, first gut instinct is mostly correct.
I'll have more pics in the next day or two with interior pics (indigo) and exterior with lower light (shade).

Meanwhile, here's a couple of more under a shade tent at the dealer.

It's close..it's coming...hang in there...if the butterflies start acting up again, may I recommend some Pepto-Bismol followed quickly by a couple of shots of tequila ..that always works for me.. (well.....minus the Pepto)

Pretty much the same issue here in Sydney, Australia. It gets hot in summer so I'm struggling with the color choice, although I will be going the black interior which has led me to a lighter colored GC.

Glad to hear you and the wife like it better in person as that is what I thought might happen with the Billet Silver buyers

I like the silver, but it looks like the fuel door is a different shade, or is just the lighting?

You're right.. just a tad darker... in the pic...but in person, it's all uniform.
Sunlight/Shade/Clouds/Night have a big effect on all these colors, especially here in AZ with the brilliant and at times blinding sunshine
But no matter ones location, I strongly suggest in carefully viewing colors in person before ordering.
