  • Override Color Cost/Estimate....Past Builds?

    So I'm a little bummed looking at the Ordering Guide and unless I'm reading it wrong, it looks like I can't have Adrenaline Red seats in a Rapid Blue car. Personally, I think that's a great color combo especially with Red calipers. Anywho, I only plan on getting a 2LT, so would an override be allowed on that trim, and what have the typical costs of an override been in the past?

    Thanks

      To answer you other question, I think that an override would allow you to get that color combination. Your dealer might ask for a substantial non-refundable deposit, though, because they'll probably think that if you back out they'll have a hard time finding another buyer who wants it.

        And they would probably be right.

          Depends to what market segment....red interior on a blue sports car is far from the most outrageous thing I've heard.....but up to the dealer i guess we will see.

            In the BMW world (and maybe others) that color scheme was referred to as the Superman combo.

              Yeah I see it's very common with BMW....as you can tell from my last C7, I like different. Heck I even found a pic of a Mclaren (I know I am not getting a Mclaren lol) with a similar color to rapid blue with red interior and in my opinion it looks sweet.

                Um yeah, I remember our dealership back in 1995 having a brand new code 43 Aqua Corvette with beige guts. That car grew roots into the tarmac. The dealer finally put a $5k sales spiff on the car. If an old lady came in looking for an Oldsmobile 88 she was shown the aqua Corvette.

                  Well thank goodness it isn't 1995 anymore and the C8 doesn't look anything like the C4 lol ... Rapid Blue is the most hyped and talked about color right now amongst my generation on social media so I have no worries regarding its marketability....Porsche, Mclaren, Mustangs, and so on are all using this color or similar to it for a reason.

                  I will say or agree that beige guts would look terrible in my honest opinion.

                    My point was we sold every C4 quite quickly, if something gets done too far out on a stylistic limb, it can make people say yeeeeeesh and a dealer doesn't want to get stuck with anything, so the higher non returnable deposit shouldn't put anyone out on a color over ride.

                    We also had a yellow convert with beige guts and top. I could always taste a little bile in my mouth every time I saw that car.

                        I've seen a C7 at a few shows in red with orange stripes. For sure not my taste, but if the owner is happy that's what matters. If blue on red is what you want, get it. Your car should be purchased for YOU, not the next owner.
