Thanks for the compliment.
Yes, steel blue metallic was a new color for the 2003 models.
I know what you mean about Tire Rack. Originally, I was supposed to buy those rims the Saturday before Memorial Day. As I was getting ready to go down to South Bend, I called the day before to make sure they had them in stock. When I did call, they did tell me they had one set in stock, in their warehouse in RENO, NV! What they don't show you when they say an item is in stock, low stock, etc, is where the merchandise is actually located until you actually go to checkout and pay for the items (I didn't know this at the time). So I had to wait another week and a half for my set to ship. I immediately paid for them over the phone, and last Tuesday went down there to have them put on.
Just another reason to "read carefully before purchasing".
