Wanted Frosted Glass, but incompetent dealer claimed they couldn't order a SEL sedan in that color. So I ordered Sterling Gray. Waited six weeks for my car only to find out the car was damaged while still on the truck. Dealer couldn't find a Sterling Gray to trade for (popular color) so I went with Race Red. When I finally pick up my car I spend an hour filling out paperwork while staring at the fully loaded Frosted Glass SEL sedan they now have parked in the showroom.

I'm still (Not so secretly) glad that Yellow Blaze isn't the top choice. I like having the only one in my area.

If i could have bought a Frosted Glass SEL hatch with a manual tranny and the sport suspension, 17" wheels i would have one now.
I do love my Yellow Blaze SE hatch and it is growing on me, it is looking more beautiful every day to me.
(I had always wanted a yellow car.. just i like green a little better..)

I was very pissed, but more than that I just wanted a car. I know some have waited longer, but after waiting six weeks I could not wait any longer. Race Red was my third choice and the only car they could find in a day. When I went to pick it up the first thing that screams out to me is that the dealer they got it from had put pinstripes on it. Got the dealer to remove them a week later.

I have learned that in the future I would not order a car from the factory. I'm just not cut out for the waiting.

I spent over a week working with the dealer trying to find a Sterling Gray Titanium with all the options I wanted. There wasn't one (at that time) anywhere in NC or SC. However there happened to be an Ingot Silver Ti sitting on the lot with all my options (plus more) and the more I looked at it, the more I like it. Now couldn't imagine me having any other color. Especially love the fact my wheels match my paint....very nice!!!

The one thing I do like better about Race Red than Sterling is the front end. The contrast between the red and the black grill looks really sharp.

From MGbox in an above post: You need to be here 30 days as well as have 25 posts I believe.

Hope this helps.
