Order it. You will have to return the car to stock for lease turn-in. Not to mention the huge expense of the change.

Also, consider Euro Delivery if you are going to order anyway :)

Don't have an answer to your specific question, and I'm sure it will also depend on your relationship with your SA/Dealer. Regardless, should not be a big deal to cancel and resubmit?

I thought they had been available since October? A search through the ED forum shows numerous deliveries. Or were they stopped briefly?

Looks like a similar config to my 335 GT. I suggest MSD if you can swing it, helps lower the finance cost a good bit. Should not be hard to get the usual $500-$1000 over invoice in spring.
