Re: New member. Ordering my Overland TONIGHT! What color? help!!!

Since I ordered basically the same Overland as Nbtstatic I have been checking out his pictures a lot. Hopefully he doesnt mind but I did a real quick photoshop of one of his pictures (my favorite one). I added front window tint to match the rears which is one of the first things I would do. I also did a very slight drop to show it sitting at the "park" setting. Man this thing is SICK!! :-)
Yeah im excited lol

Re: New member. Ordering my Overland TONIGHT! What color? help!!!

I favor the Mineral Gray with the Saddle however I didn't want to wait so I got the black interior. The frost beige is too light. I really like the saddle although I haven't seen one in person. I think the best color is in the Laredo which is the medium Gray...just my opinion.

Yeah you really cant go wrong with either. I already ordered my dark charcoal with beige interior. I have always loved the light interiors. Yes its easier to get dirty and shows everything but thats not an issue for me since im super anal about stuff and detail all the time.

This other dealership I was dealing with actually called me today saying they just got in a mineral gray overland with saddle interior and adaptive cruise control. Its not an ordered sold car and is for sale. Its unfortunate that that dealership will not go below $43,500 otherwise I would be tempted. I got mine for $41,225. I will be happy with what I got and one benefit that I like is it wont be such an early built car. All the ones sold already or showing up at dealers were likely built in 2010 and are relatively early built cars. I like to get one from a little later in the year.

Re: New member. Ordering my Overland TONIGHT! What color? help!!!

James,

I'm in the western suburbs of Chicago - what dealer did you work with to get that price? I'm looking at buying an Overland in a few months - probably will order. Were you happy with your sales person? Would you recommend him/her? Thanks!

Nadine

I did a lot of research, emailing, test drives and hopefully all my work can make your buying process as simple as going in and ordering with no work required :-) Yes I was overall happy with the dealership so far and I would recommend using them again. The dealer was Tyson Motors (chrysler dodge jeep) in Shorewood, IL which is under 2 miles from my house in Plainfield. Wouldnt be too bad of a drive from the west burbs you can either take rt59 all the way down or I55. Its at I55 and Jefferson and only a half mile east of rt59 and Jefferson. My salesmen name was Nathan and he was nice and not pushy like your typical salesman.
The original deal I negotiated all by email before ever stepping foot into the dealer was $41,700. Once at the dealer to order I worked them down to a final price of $41,225+ttl no trade. They took a $250 deposit which I thought was also reasonable. That was the best deal I could get in the entire Chicago area. Unless something changes in a few months dont bother with Naperville Jeep, they would not budge under $43,500 and even told me Tyson Motors was lying and there is no way they could let a new Overland go for right near $41. I said ok watch me....and I did. I understand dealerships need to make money as well, but I gotta do whats best for me to.

Anyway, let me know if I can be of any furthur assistance to you.

P.S. Mancari's in Oak Lawn was the other dealership willing to get into the $41's, but Tyson said they would beat their price. That and along with Tyson being 5 minutes from my house it was a no brainer. Both are high volume large dealers.

2nd P.S. One last thing. I originally wasnt going to order until spring either until I found out how long its taking some guys to get an ordered Overland. I wont have mine until spring time when I was originally looking to buy anyway. So I figured might as well order it now to get it when I wanted it. Otherwise had I waited till spring to order it would have been more towards the end of summer to get it and I didnt want that. I wanted an entire spring and summer to enjoy my brand new Overland and keep it nice and shiny. No payments, downpayments or anything obviously until you take delivery except for small deposit.

James

With saddle I perfer Mineral Grey. With frost I perfer Dark Char or Blackberry. Either looks good in white.

Blacks always cool but didnt want that. I ordered the dark charcoal with beige interior. In certain light dark charcoal looks almost black anyway so it's kind of best of both worlds in a way. One other reason I opted for something else is black is the most produced. So when these WK2's start getting super common I'm not going to see my exact car at every stop light.

Re: New member. Ordering my Overland TONIGHT! What color? help!!!

Thanks, James for the thorough info. I had stopped by Naperville Jeep a few months ago just looking, and I knew right then I probably wouldn't be working with them. I grew up in Plainfield, so I know exactly where Tyson is. Good info on how long the order process takes for the Overland too. I was thinking of ordering with the idea of getting the Jeep in late April/early May. Sounds like I need to get in there and place the order. Appreciate the advice!!
