    Are you set on Motlen Orange? I actually found I prefer Orange Spice kts what I ordered and am about to take delivery on. Yes I got the Smoke Storm Recaro’s . Hit me up in pm as I do know an out of state dealership that has a 2017 Orange Spice with Smoke Storm Recaros and nothing else. You might get a smoking deal out of them.

    I'm partial to the more red'ish hue of the molten vs the more yellow spice...that being said, I haven't seen the spice in person. Just going off all the forum and google pics I can find of the 2 in different lighting situations.

    A smoking deal would be rad as perhaps the small technical changes made w the '17...but let me see what I can find first w molten orange. Very much appreciate the lead!

    Well I wanted a Performance Blue had decided I was ok with a Magnetic in 17 and then in the fall of 17 saw a Orange Spice in the sunlight and it jus jumped. The color is awesome in the sunlight. I personally am not a Red fan so the fact that Molten goes red outside of the Sun turned me off. The Orange Spice actually goes more toward a burnt orange and almst copperish outside of the sun not so much yellow.
    I wound up with an 18 so I got the back up up camera. I also got a great deal at $19,678 before tax and license.

    Ah my OTD was pretty much $22,478 Tax and lic is a .... here in California. Though $19,678 before for a Option color($595) Recaros($1995) Ebony Wheels($375) car is still a great deal. Thats 5k off sticker. At least 2k below invoice. Take those options off and you would have a base ST for $16,678. Roughly.

    You can dicker here it just depends. I actually went through a couple of dealers before arriving at the one I did they happened to have a 17 arriving and it was the same setup I ordered....But i got buay and it arrived and I about to go up to the dealership and buy it and it got sold. I can safely say I got lucky as I got turned pver to the fleet manager and he was like hell I will just order you one.
    It was 1k more than I was going to get the 2017 for. Then the rebates rose and I got a hold of a 2k private cash deal and the next thing you new i was dropping $5400 off sticker. Lol So ordering actually worked out real well. My car is due to arrive any day now too!
