Re: What if I ordered the "wrong" color?

I would think someone somewhere (i.e. a regional manager) could enter in a color change while in D status....

Re: What if I ordered the "wrong" color?

My dealer reordered and let me choose when they came in. Oddly, the one I ordered one week later came in one week earlier, so I didn't even look at the other one. Both were the exact same options, and neither went through the 40 mile QA. I'm not sure why your dealer won't reorder for you. Maybe they don't think they can resell the white gold?

Re: What if I ordered the "wrong" color?

I'm a happy camper this morning! Just got word from the dealer that they were able to get the color change in, so I will be rolling in the Mineral Grey Metallic. Rolling, that is, as soon as the beast gets built and delivered, which can not be soon enough! So while the salesman was not giving me a confident "can do" perspective, he got the job done anyway, making for a very appreciative and happy customer! My first-ever Jeep experience is getting better and better. . . next stop: D1, and soon I hope.

Re: What if I ordered the "wrong" color?

glad it worked out, nothing worse than buyer's remorse before you take delivery. ya gots to love the white gold unequivocally, otherwise it's not something that will grow on you.

btw, saw a green overland in full sun on a dealer lot. spectacular.

Re: What if I ordered the "wrong" color?

+1 I was definitely overthinking the whole color thing. I'm "better" now!

I did like the White Gold very much,and paired with the Summit's Saddle seats and dash it is a very elegant, classy combination. Then I saw a Mineral Grey Metallic on the road in good light, and it was really striking. IMO the Mineral Grey reacts best to changing light and reflections, really showing off the crisply-sculpted bodywork on the WK2. Great interplay between the paint tone and the chrome bits, with just the right contrast. To my eyes, that is. Color can be so subjective!

I used to work on the Mercedes-Benz of North America account back in my advertising days, where we'd spend days discussing which specific model looked best in which specific color. . . and we got paid to do that! Then we got to order the cars and colors we wanted to take out to the desert, or park in front of concert halls and mansions for their closeups. So, speaking as an art director and photographer, I think this SUV (in Summit livery) may look its all-around best in the Mineral Grey Metallic! I have not yet seen the Rugged Brown, though I'm pretty sure I'd love that too. I also saw a Green Overland last week, and it was sweet!

This is a very handsome vehicle, and it looks great in lots of colors. As far as Golds go, the "best" Gold colors I've seen are BMW's and Volvo's. . . the tones get a lot deeper and there is more metallic flake in the mix, giving that great sense of sculpting and modeling to the coachwork.

Is this a great country or what, that we get to obsess even a bit about these kinds of issues? I'm lovin' it more, every day!! Love this forum too!

White gold looks 110% better than gray. Imo

Re: What if I ordered the "wrong" color?

Well I mean there are quite a few grey cars on the road. You could always go for a custom paint job, and get something unique.

Magnaflow is a exhaust company, make very good aftermarket exhaust, I have it on my mustang and get great compliments. Here is their link and a forum thread where you can hear someone who has done it here.

Did you get the Hemi or V6?
@ ArmyRXP : this looks pretty cool...i have a summit hemi on order, due date March/April/who knows . Do you know if this magnaflow exhaust system creates any real 'interior' noise during say, while on the highway? I'd be interested in some more real life customer stories, do you have any other spots with real life customers and/or clips of the sound?
