    Thanks for everyone's patience with answering questions that had probably already been answered a gazillion times before.

    After 2 test drives and about 1000 hours ruminating on every decision, I just placed my order. Whoo-who!

    S85
    Grey exterior (seriously considered Pearl White, since I've had so many grey cars, but just love the car in this color)*
    Grey interior (I've never had anything but black interiors and wanted to make a move to something different)*
    Matte Obeche
    Panorama Roof
    Standard Rims
    Standard Stereo (I listened to both systems and really didn't hear that much difference, except when boosting the bass really, really high)*
    Tech Package (I, mean, does anyone EVER get this car without that?)
    Air Suspension (Advice I received here and elsewhere really pushed me toward this one)
    Parking Sensors

    *Items that I'll spend the next two weeks questioning....

    Yay. Glad that's over with. Now I can get back to my real life and thinking of something else (until I get a delivery date....)

    EXCITING!! Congrats in advance. I hope to going you this coming Friday.

    You can also send your order directly to production and not have to wait two weeks, just FYI.

    Congrats! Try not to second guess your color choice (impossible I know). Grey looks really nice and can't go wrong with any of the colors actually.

    Congratulations! Your build looks great, you won't be dissapointed (my build is the same, save the parking sensors... and the colors).

    Quick, let's all second guess these choices, I mean White is awesome and Grey completely understates the car to th point it looks like a Civic... and Grey interior? Are you sure? :biggrin:

    Just giving you a hard time... seriously though Congrats! You will love your car, and now you have the added knowledge of knowing you helped design it. :love:
