Quick question, for the Blue Streak Pearl (mid-october start). Will it be available to order this color around Jan/Feb, or will it be a quick order window like the GWE was this last year? I am going to be ready to buy or order around Jan/Feb, why I ask.

Thanks ResumeSpeed!

I'm torn between the interior choices-but I think I'll go with the slate gray. Oh wait, thats the same color I had in my '08, and '10. How boring!
