    I love the look of the white interior but I wasn't brave enough to go for it. Not with two Klingon teens...

    Beautiful color combo and probably what I would have ordered if it had been available for RWD. Welcome to TMC!

    I have a 2002 BMW E39 M5 in LeMans Blue with 18k Miles. I have had an assortment of Subaru’s over the years - WRXs STIs and still have a 2009 Outback XT manual that I refuse to part with.

    I’ve had an assortment of 3 series and M3s over the years.

    Wife has a 2016 Honda Pilot.

    Can’t wait to drive more and learn more about this car!

    Hot. I didn’t go for white. Afraid. Had light tan in an older car and it looked awesome but I tired of cleaning it after some time

    It’s a keeper. Great car. Keeping it going perfectly is starting to cost real money - gasket replacement, vanos etc. I drive it infrequently but do drive it to keep things moving.
