Congrats, thePusher. Did they give you a delivery date? Perhaps a delivery season or a delivery year?

BTW: That is the full option list.. not what I ordered. I am not picking much to be honest and am only looking at small options... Maybe a custom color but $22K for a color is pretty close to insanity.

OK, here's what I would do... All kidding aside, I wasn't that wild about the leather options or the race wheels... Of course, it's not my car or my money, but it's still fun to dream!

Ok Crew my 2 cents.
If we lived long enough the Luggage always will add to resale. I can see it now At action 2045 all Org with Luggage... My self I wounder if I would get it(Luggage).

One thing I know I would pass on is the Sticky Tires..
Why? because it is going to be a sensational car as it is. With the harder longer lasting Tire she comes with, It will be so much easyer to find its limits . and After "I"(Opps) "You" get to know her we can up grade to the sticky race stuff if we needed.

Nice to know one is coming to Calif.. wait tell the S. Cal Mods here about it .... (if thay do not know by already) Again Welcome to the BB were all so excited for you.
I am Hoping one will be up in N cal soon too.

I agree. So many options. The reason I've delayed my "signing on the dotted line." What I definatly want is the "Personalized Limited Edition Badge (in silver) $710".
