I am not making up facts. When buyers are told they cannot order the combo, there are some misinformed sales people out there. I never said nor implied that most sales people are under the impression it is not possible.

I'm not arguing with you about the color combo and whether is can be order, which seems to be your impression of my comments...

And I agree on your commet about the other color combos being "okay" for the average buyer. Same rational as to why dealers rarely stock manual cars for dealer inventory.
