Good Morning or Evening :willy:

I just received word that I was 1 of only 40 allowed to buy through the local AAFES car sales program and got a GREAT deal. :party:

I bought the SLY with the dual tone leather and had it FULLY loaded out the door for only $22,253.50! :yesnod: The only option that was not offered on the build sheet was the OnStar, but I really do not use my 03 Burbs anyway. :yawn:

I will not be home until next year, so the wait is not too bad ...but I am excited. :leaving: Finally, something good happened over here! :brentil:

I wanted to ask if anyone has seen the SLY in person and what they thought. I had such a hard time judging the colors, due to having little access over here. I wanted a deep color like red, black,or blue at first, but SLY just won me over ... some how. :thumbs: SLY seems to be not too "in your face" to me. I thought the 2 tone leather looked good, again in photos, so I would appreciate comments on the 2 choices.

Finally, I picked polished aluminum over chrome, because I thought the chrome would look better on a deeper color. JMOA

I would appreciate any feedback on the other colors ... if you have seen a Solstice in person.

Sorry for the length, but I had alot of questions. Thanks for all input.

Congrats! :cheers:

I wouldn't think you could use the OnStar in Iraq even if you had it, could you?

:agree:

LOL ... I am coming home to pick it up in AL. :leaving: (April 2006)



However, there have been a few days when I needed it! :brentil:


Until I come home I just have a pair boots for transportation ... the Solstice will be a BIG upgrade! :cheers:

PAO ... you are correct.

I hope dori-san was joking. :crazy:

The Solstice might last 30 minutes ... over here. :skep:

Uploaded Hummers are the way to go!:thumbs:

Take Care! :grouphug:

i've been up close to sly,deep,cool and aggressive... and have seen the other colors from a distance at the plant. i have come to the conclusion that the solstice looks fabulous in any color. sly is close..maybe identical..... to the concept car, and is featured in most of the promotional material. somebody at Pontiac must think it looks best in this color. look in the gallery and ou will see plenty of pix that are sly with steel/sand interior. congratulations on getting a solstice.... as good as it looks in pictures, the real thing looks better- and better yet from the driver's seat.

:agree:
Damn straight! :patriot:

Is this a GM-sponsored program for soldiers deployed to Iraq? or overseas in general? Either way, I think its great - I just wish they had enough Solstices for all Iraq veterans (but that would take 10+ years production :willy: )

Congratulations! Good choice, Sly's a beautiful color

I too ordered the Sly. It's an interesting, and (in my opinion) beautiful, color. It looks slightly darker in low light, and a lighter in bright, direct light. There's a CTS in the parking lot where I work, and depending on whether or not the owner parks under the cover or not, the paint takes on a different appearance. The brochures and pictures make it look slightly darker than it looks in the bright sun. :cool:

The color, when I see it, is a calm, understated, yet striking silver-grey with a subtle semi-metallic glisten. I saw the two tone interior with the Sly at the LA Auto Show in Jan 2005, and it was well balanced. It has a refined appearance.

My thoughts are with you for a safe return. Thanks for your service.

Be well.

Keep safe over there and a deep thanks from someone who lives under the benefits you and the other guys over there have given to us. Have fun with your Sol when you get home. :patriot:

Great news! Ditto on the thanks for our troops. There is nothing we can do to repay you folks. I'd like to see you guys get 'em for free. I don't think Ophra and/or croud would sponsor that.
SMSgt (ret). Come home safe and God Bless!!
