Car coming with wrong rims, what to do?

So after 6+ months of waiting my car has been built (23580) . Like all good Camaro5 member I check out the VIN number and run the window sticker.
Well.. the price is off so I carefully check the window sticker to find out that the car was built with 19" polished rims, not what I ordered which was the standard 2LT 19" painted rims.
Now I am not a big rim guy, thus why I did not order any of the optional rims.

What should I do? Does anyone with the 19" polished rims really like them? I will not wait for another car, just not sure how much of a big deal to make of this. While it is only $470, the rims are nothing that makes any difference to me.

Just take it the way it is and swap it out later if you choose.

The ones he's getting cost more and most think they are better but I think the Midnight silver is better than the Polished wheels.. hence why I didn't do Polished...

Yes but its not Midnight Vs. Polished, its Polished vs. Base.

Yep, more money for the polished. Rims are not my thing, so I didn't order any extra or better rims. Now the car has them. Maybe I can get the dealer to sell them to me at invoice (since I did not order them or want them).

I also did not have much luck using the search to find pictures of the polished 19" rims (as most members either have an SS or the RS package).

No no no....




You have just recieved a Free Set of Rims.




They ****ed up = you win. They may need a little argumenative convincing but you won.

I seriously doubt the dealer is going to eat the price. He may at best offer them to you at dealer cost. The polished look is a good one. If they money doesn't bother you take them and go enjoy your car!

Like most people, I don't like to give away $470, but it is not a deal breaker for me. I don't expect the dealer to eat it, maybe they can sell them at invoice.
