Zauri, that's how I ended up with the silver. I had wanted the 5 door in red or dark cherry, but only the base was my in price range and they couldn't find any in those colors with a manual transmission. I was given a great offer on an Ice Silver Metallic premium w/ weather package and there was no way I could pass that up. The color is really growing on me and I'm finding excuses to run errands just so that I can go for a drive.
Congrats on your gorgeous ride and a great deal!
