I don't call it "special" order, simply "order'. Out of about 15 cars I've owned, I only bought one off the lot. So yes, I always order my cars. I want the exact colors and options, they rarely have exactly what I want in stock. For the prices cars cost, especially in the range we're buying, I won't settle for a compromise. I can wait the 6-8 weeks, I'm used to it. OTOH, we've leased several Acruas over the last 10 years for my wife, for those there aren't so many colors vs. options, and we've generally taken one from stock.
