Visited my Dealer to be today.

I finally took a trip up to West Covina this afternoon to check the place out. Having spoken to Lena on the phone a couple of times, it was nice to meet her in person. I didn't actually take a formal count, but they had approximately a dozen cars out in the back. No orphans at this time. I believe they have over 100 people on their orphan list now. I didn't check to see where I am now on the list, but I presume I'm probably still stuck at 70 something. I still think I will end up with the car I actually ordered before an orphan becomes available that would work for me. There were no yellow or red cars on the lot. I have configured white on black with a red interior. That configuration was not on the lot, however, there was a white on black with a tan interior. So at least I got to see what the outside of my car will look like in person...

Does this have the making of a "Lena Fan Club" thread?

If I really wanted a car and one cane in with all the accessories i wanted but the panels were the "wrong" color, I think I would spend the 900 to 1100 and buy a second set of panels. Then sell the others .

If you have a decent amount of cash on hand I'm sure you can always work out a deal!

But generally, no you cannot go into a dealership and buy one.
