Yes. You can either special order (around 3 months wait) or I just saw a Yellow '02 at the dealer yesterday with cloth and moonroof only. Odd.

Last year, TEG special ordered his car like that. I've put a special order in for my '02 (Blue/Black LS, LSD) because I'm willing to wait this time.

it doesn't 'cost more' but the dealers may not be willing to deal as much since it is not something they have on hand. In my opinion it should be cheaper since they have to do nothing more than make a phone call, but thats not usually the case.

It doesn't cost you or the dealer any more or less in terms of the sticker price of the car. There are no special order fees.

But like Jiggs said, a SO car is an EASY sale, but it's not a RIGHT NOW sale...

Dealers lose money every day the car sits on their lot, so it's in their best interest to sell it ASAP. (therefore they will be much more willing to strike a deal with you) In cases of special orders, they might not be so willing to deal...but at least you get only the options you want.

I got my IS with cloth and m/r no special order. Easier sale, I got a better deal since most people want leather. The dealer wanted to sell the cloth ASAP.
