She's a beauty! Congrats on the new ride and welcome to the forum. I see that you are in Houston so window tint is a must. I lived in Dallas for 7 years and lost more than a few layers of skin to hot car seats!

Thankfully in Canada we rarely have to worry about hot seats, in fact we have seat warmers that we use most of the year.

Do you have a black interior as well?

black always looks amazing and as hard as it may be to maintain, how it looks well properly cared for makes it all worth it in the end.

my GF learned the hard way with my old coupe, jumping in right away on a hot day with a lot of skin exposed....and that didn't end well :D
seats get so hot you can literally cook an egg on it, even some bacon strips.

I came back from getting my windows tinted yesterday, and there was a scratch on it. On my way to take it back to the dealership to fix it, I got a freaking speeding ticket. My first one in 12 years. I just flat-out wasn't paying attention, trying to fidget around with the controls, and next thing I know, a cop is behind me, and I look down with the gauge over 80. I'm sooooo annoyed...at the dealership for making me go back to get it fixed, and myself for speeding in the first place. In my defense, it was going so smooth, I honestly couldn't tell I was speeding.

Yes, it's black on black. Everyone commenting on it has said that it's definitely the nicest look. That being said, it's definitely a pain to keep clean. I'm walking around with a washcloth to wipe smudges off.

Soooo I'm gonna go with you probably being the first ever RC350 owner to get a speeding ticket isn't exactly the award you were aiming for huh???? Sorry dude that sucks …. I'm gonna write it off to the cop being so fascinated with your ride that he just had to figure out what kinda car it was
:D


As for the wash cloth and smudges … yea that would be me out here in CO. Bird pooped on it and I about lost my mind hahaha

Where did they scratch it?

Sounds like you are having some bad luck my friend. My guess would be that the copper was checking out your RC and then he had to find an excuse to take a look at the interior lol. Are you going to fight the infraction?

Owning black cars is a part time job. Dont ask me how I know...

Turns out it wasn't a scratch. There was a foreign object, like some kind of stick or debris that just blew in when they were applying the tint. It was about half inch long, but definitely noticeable. I found some other scratches on my driver side window as well. Instead of having them redo it all that day, I'm going to wait for a couple days for the tint to dry, then I'll take it back so they can do all the fixes.

I've always gotten attorneys to get it dismissed. When you do defensive driving, you're pleading no contest, and you have to pay administrative fees along with it going on record. I was cited for going 83 in a 65. I'm usually going with the flow of traffic, but it was one in the afternoon on Tuesday, and traffic was pretty light.


On a side not, I had my kids with me (12, 11 and 5). It is NOT a good vehicle for backseat riding, not even for kids. The seats were pushed pretty far back to be comfortable for the upfront people, so there's barely any leg room. It makes the airlines seating look spacious in comparison.

And you can surely count on observers of your new car to be candid. I had a friend (a member of the Sheriff's SWAT team) who actually bought an Aztec once, and I had to tell him how much I liked it.

It doesn't have to be a part time job.
I used take care of it myself with no help from a detailer but it's just easier and better to have a detailer do paint protection, waxing, etc and waxing every so often to keep it looking good.

Plus they are the pro's, might as well.
