So, initially, I had "designed a build" that was Blue, but was told that they weren't taking any more orders in Oct/Nov. Then, the red FE came into the dealer (it seemed) unexpectedly and they converted it from a "Demo Car" to sale-able. Over Thanksgiving they started calling people like me "on the list to be on the list", and I was the first to answer back. So, I took it. Then, after it died ... they were scrambling for replacement options for me and somebody who ordered the blue (and pretty equivalently equipped) had asked for his deposit back. So, it became mine. This build was actually very close to my own - including (as I live in Phoenix) not asking for heated mirrors/steering. So, I'll actually get back about $2K.
I'm looking forward to getting back into an electric car. The loaner they gave me was not only an ICE, but required PREMIUM fuel!! :-s
