Wrong color now or preferred color later?

My local dealer has had a white RS on order for me for months and it was scheduled in a while ago. It left New Jersey on a train several weeks ago and they still haven't seen or heard anything regarding it's location. They have one on the lot in Stealth Grey with all the same features (less sunroof, which I don't care about) that I could take delivery on this afternoon if I wanted.

If you had to choose between an RS that wasn't necessarily your first color choice *now* and your preferred color *God knows when*, which would you choose?

The price difference is almost exactly $1000. They said that they won't add any sort of discount because the white one is inbound, just no idea when.

I'd wait. You ordered the color you wanted for a reason.

Murphy's law dictates that the second you decide to settle on the grey color, your white one will show up on the lot the next day.

I'm biased, but I prefer the white RS.

Color choice is one of the bigger reasons to buy a new car.

I'm torn, honestly. My wife really prefers the SG color, and I do like it a lot. It's just that every hatch I've purchased for myself in the last 20+ years has been white, starting with an '89 Mitsubishi Mirage Turbo (which started my hot hatch fascination back in the day). ?
