I'm ordering my Sol next week and I have run across a little dilema.... I know I want the power package, convienience package, abs, a/c, and of course Limited slip differential..... here lies the problem..... I'm stuck on color. I've got it narrowed down to Sly (grey) and Cool (silver). Someone help me I only have 6 days! Also, how long did it take for you guys to get yours? The dealer told me if I ordered next week that I wouldn't have it until sometime in January or February. does that sound right or am I getting the runaround?

I think you'd be lucky to get it in January or February. I've been waiting since April and still don't have mine. I ordered sly.

Sounds like Run-run-run- runaround....You need to ask which position are you in his second allocation (assuming second at this point in time) and do some post searching

by the way the answer is mysterious :lol:

I dont know that anyone can answer that question for you, its a personal taste thing really.

Since your asking though, my personal opinion is that the gray is just drab and ugly, the only color they offer I dont care for. Go with the silver if its a choice between the two.

I really don't know...... I absolutely love both colors and I think it may kill me trying to decide this in a week..... If I change my mind in a reasonable time can they change the color? as it currently stands though I am leaning a little more towards sly

Well if you like them both then there is no wrong answer. Flip a coin for fun.

I almost forgot... If I go cool..... She'd be in my hands on thursday. My dealer had a reserved one that backed out of the first allocation. I really want to make sure I get exactly what I want though and I want to be 100% financially prepared for this car. Keep in mind I'm only 22 years old.... but the dealers allocation is only three out of the second shipment, as opposed to the other pontiac dealer here that gets 10, and decided to mark up the msrp by 10,000 dollars..... I'm sorry I'm not paying over 30 grand for a 23,000 dollar car..... I'll pay list and be just fine

Take the first one you can get, dude! Provided it has the right options for you, of course, but grab one quick!

As you can see in my signature, the flip of the coin determined the color of Vanessa (yes I named her and I don't even have her yet) is going to be SLY... I know it means I'll have to wait.... but then again I get to avoid all the road salt and sand of winter here in NJ

By the way... My dealer said I'm #1 for them in the second Allocation

Good choice in color!

Reason for the name of Vanessa?

I've changed my mind about color several times. I don't think you can go wrong with any of them on this car, unless there is a color that you just hate.

Great choice with the Sly. That's what I'm getting. What interior are you going to get? I ordered the Steel & Sand two tone leather. IMO, it was designed to go with the Sly and looks great.

If you're really desperate to see one in person, I'll let you know when mine finally gets delivered. It has been built, but is still at the plant in Deleware, possibly on hold due to quality issues. I'm hoping I'll get it in time for my birthday, November 9th.

Take the one you can get now. Put your name on the list for the one you want and then sell the one you're driving when the new one comes in.

I like the look of SLY in the promos, but from the actual pictures, I think it's a toss up.

jerzkid: I agree. I would actually be willing to pay extra to NOT get leather. But then, I'm in Houston!

This sounds really weird but I would actually prefer to wait on it.... by doing that I don't have to risk this winter and damage to her. And I named her Vanessa simply because its a HOT name for a HOT car.... and my roomate already stole Alexandra for his 350z....
