Hey guys,
I finally went for it and ordered my 2011 SXT (That is the Canadian version of the base SE) - with the Mopar Interior Appearance Group, Brilliant Black, cloth seats.
Should be in in 8 weeks.
Very excited.
Richard

None of the dealers around me have many of any trim level on the lots (except the IE, lots of those around), and they are all saying 6-8 weeks. I ordered last Friday and he didnt even have an allocation.......we will see.

Your black might cause you a problem because of the metal flake.

Good luck on your order.

You mean black might be a problem because of that shortage of paint material? I hope not, the guy said since I ordered soon it should not be a problem, what have you heard about it?

Yes because of the shortage. I believe that was one of the colors that would soon be on restriction. Good luck.

On dodge.ca no colours are X'd out, on dodge.com if you go to the challenger section you will see some colours are X'd out but BB is not one of them - we will see

Rich, you might want to get RS's take on the color. i'm sure I saw where Brilliant Black, among others, was now completely restrained. I wouldnt necessarilly take my dealer's word for gospel on that. And the Dodge site is never current.

Congrats on your choice of car. Sorry you may have to wait.
I ordered my SXT on Nov 18,2010 and its built and in storage at Canadas Wonderland. I hope it shows up before yours but it might not, lets wait and see. I was told 8 to 12 weeks but whos counting?

26G I was after the leather heated seats and added the sunroof as I'm giving up my 06 Mustang Ragtop
If it takes much longer though I can put the top down before I deal it

Thanks for the tip - I contacted him and this is what he had to say:

"No one really knows the extent that the pigment shortage is going to affect production. I believe that they had enough supplies in stock to last awhile, and they are conserving them by restricting new vehicle orders in the affected colors. IF the system accepted your order than you should be ok"

On Dodge Cars Trucks Minivans SUVs in Canada - Home - dodge.ca now there are only 3 colours for the challenger listed now: White, Grey, and Toxic Orange

Thanks again,
Richard
