Just saying..

But on the order sheet? I have my Dealerspeed printout from a July build, and it doesn't have either of these two line items (6VC or 8TL). It does have things like "6NF Smartphone Integration" or "6FL Ipod and USB Adapter".

Still seems strange that their build sheets would have a new line item added without a hardware change. That build sheet refers to *hardware*, not delivery instructions.

And you can change to aftermarket bulbs to get a "white" light for the coronas, but it won't look as good as the OEM option. They have redesigned the entire light housing to spread the LED around evenly, you'd have to replace the entire assembly to get the identical effect.
