I'm considering changing the color of my new baby because of the whole Tungsten / lavender / pink whatever issue.

My question is since I already have been serialized and my order is scheduled to be built week of Sept 5, can I change the color of my car without affecting my VIN or build date?

Or will I have to cancel and reorder?

From what I have seen in other forums, it is too late, have you seen these pictures? I can see a very small hue, but not enough to bother me.

First I have heard of it. What is the issue with Tungsten Grey.

I believe that once the car is serialized, there can be no changes.

There are a few who have seen the car in person who says it has a certain purplish hue in certain lighting conditions to it, take a look at the link I gave earlier on this thread and you can see it.

This paint may have the same characteristics just like my Pearl White Harley. At first glance my bike is glossy white. Depending on the time of day and angle of light you can see a hint of lavender or purpleish hues reflecting back. As for the tungsten color, this could be contributed to the metal flake in the paint that ford uses causing a split of the light like a prism. I think this could be a welcome benefit in that it makes the car that much more interesting to look at.

I've seen the Tungsten in person and also noticed the lavender tint to the color. Personally I didn't care for it.
