This is going to seem like a stupid irrelevant post, and I know no one can really tell me what to do, but I've been actively (ok, compulsively) reading this forum for a few weeks now.

I ordered my tC last weekend. I wanted a NB. The dealer called me and said that there was no way I'd be able to get a NB by the end of the month, and gave me three choices of what I could get. (BCP, FM, or the silver)

FM isn't bad, but it isn't exactly what I want. He said it would be at least 6 weeks till I could get a NB.

Now, specific colors aside, would you settle for a nice color that isn't exactly what you want to get the car now, or would you wait however long to be 'perfect'.

I'm a new driver and am eager to start driving, but I could probably wait a bit if I had to.

What would you guys do?

For me there was a long wait no matter what... so I went with what was shortest the SSM. Still waited 2+ months.

IMO if I was going to spend 17k + on a brand new car, I would want it to be perfect so I had no regrets. I would wait but thats just me... I think you should get what you really want. 6 weeks is a long time but I think you will be glad that you waited...

I actually wanted the BSP and FM as my first choices but since I eager also I just went with what was available which was the SSM.

No, I'd wait. Make sure you get exactly the car you want. It's definitely worth the wait!

I had to wait a month to get my BSP, all because I wanted a manual tranny. I wasn't going to settle for 2nd or 3rd best. But it's up to you. Do what you feel is right. Just don't do something you think, or KNOW you'll end up regreting.

depending on your definition of near...

no, i guess not. sacramento, ca is probably too far to drive.

i agree, wait to get exactly what you want. i liked flint mica with black as my second choice. i almost settled for black because i would have gotten it in one week instead of two. i decided to wait and yesterday i got my flint mica, and i am so happy i waited. i still like the black, but the flint mica is the nicest paint i've seen on any car, and i'm really happy i didn't settle for my second choice. at least thats my opinion : )

i would wait.i really wanted the silver streak but instead i got the 1.0 because they had one available.plus its a limited edition.so i thought, what the hell?it's ok i guess but i'm just not used to having a "hot" colored car.besides the tC not really having a back end, the red really makes it noticeable.annoys the hell outta me.

if you can afford the wait, (not moneywise) and dont *need* the car right now, i'd wait. if you absolutly need the car, i would get it right away. 6 weeks is only a month and a half; you're gonna have this car for years.
