Phone message from my Saturn Sales Rep....:willy:
I'll spare the details, but, I was bumped from #9 to #4!!! :cool: Automatics and Chrome wheels being a sticking point.
He told me if I gave up the wheels he'd order the car (actually the GM is handling the actual Imaging order) tonight and forward an order number and details later....:willy:
I have been looking at the painted wheels and with the Yellow car, the silver windshield and back of the seat trim would then match the wheels -- I like it -- so I went with it... And saved $750.00!:cheers: :lol: :cheers:


Sunni Has been ordered!! :drool: :driving:

Rick,

Congratz from one future yellow SKY owner to another. I just made it under the wire on the chrome rims but I like the painted alloy just fine. I think either way the car looks sharp. I've never owned chrome rims and thought I'd try it. If I had the same restriction, I would have passed on them also and would have done the same thing as you.

You can always treat yourself to new rims in the future. I've seen some nice ones on the Solstice.

So Sorry Rick

Rick...reconsider...please...I am telling u. Don't compromise. The chrome wheels u really want...it does bring out every color...if u can hold out, do it. Just ask any of us that have seen the chrome....don't do it. PERSERVERE. We have for over a year....a little longer...but if u cannot...I feel sorry....but best of luck...I know u will be happy. You would be happier though with the chrome....sorry if I don't agree with the other members. No I am not sorry. The chrome wheels look more attractive on this car.

Come on, it's just the wheels. You can't see them when you are driving it from the inside of the car. I've heard several folks talk about getting the painted wheels to save money so they can go out and buy after market anyway. The aftermarket might look better than the chrome ones we are getting now, and it would be more personalized.

You're not talking about something that can't be fixed later, or cost big bucks to fix, like the color of the car or what transmission you have in it.
Rick, get the thing.

I have a shot of a yellow SKY on my desktop wallpaper. It has the painted rims. I have to tell you I was thinking of changing BEFORE the call. The paint matches the Windshield trim and the back of the seat edging. I kind of started to really like that. So changing was not hard at all.

Saving $750 on wheels also means that's $750 you could spend on after market wheels if you so desire as well. I have the painted on my Sol though and I love them.
