Newbie here....Change Color?

Hello Everyone...new guy here..first post. Great site and seems to be filled with all great people!

I ordered my black Overland back on September 7th. Was told a VIN was assigned but still do not have status yet. Does anyone here think I can keep my same order and change the color to Mineral Gray? I will call the dealer today and ask but wanted to be prepared for their response.

Thanks!

Re: Newbie here....Change Color?

We're being told that once the order has been assigned a VIN it's too late to change the order. That's because it's already been scheduled for production.

The unofficial word is that if the dealer is willing to push hard enough, it is sometimes possible to change, but I think it's unlikely.

Thanks bpm...I will be happy with the black...but if I have an opportunity to change colors would consider the mineral gray. Probably not worth torturing the dealer to make the change if in fact production is scheduled...will let you know what I am told!

Hey Scott...

No status letter yet. Will find out today. Do I need the VIN# in addition to the contributing member status to track the progress?

Spoke to GSM at the dealership...my Overland has been built and is in JS status. On the way to storage and then transport to me...so maybe a week or two. Apparently I won't be changing colors! Brilliant Black it is!!
