    I've always thought that BRG looks best on, ahem, British cars. How about a Jag F type or AM Volante with a tan interior and tan top?

    That new Kia Cadenza is pretty sharp.

    Sales of Kia Optimas seem to be booming down here in Northern Cuba. And their drivers love driving at 100 mph to showcase the awesome horsepower

    Whoa, surprised to see another RL owner here.
    I've got a 2006 with close to 100K miles. It's a kind of a null vehicle to drive but it's been comfortable and trouble free.
    The AWD does well in the snow. I've long since given up trying to get the voice command system to understand me.

    You should check to make sure it's had the brake master cylinder recall done.
    The door handle sensors for the keyless entry are supposed to be problematic but I haven't experienced any problems with mine.
    Also, if two people with keys get in an unlocked car, it seems to almost invariably pair with the passenger's key (i.e. wifey's) so the memory seat will try to crush you and all the presets will be hers.

    I actually have only spent 30 minutes with the car so I don't know ANY of those types of features, such as the seat position memory based on key fob, etc.

    Will definitely check into the brake master cylinder recall, thanks for letting me know.

    Trouble free driving is really what we're looking for. I figure down the road if I need something with more excitement I'll scoop up an inexpensive 2 seater, such as an S2000 or Boxster S.

    What tires are you running? Impressions?

    British racing green on tan interior should only be limited to british cars imo

    You've convinced me.

    From now on Candy Apple Red is only for apples, Gunmetal Gray on gunmetal, and lastly only babies may now be painted Baby Blue.

    I know you're being sarcastic, but I wouldn't be 100% opposed to that scheme.

    I hate everything that Bieber represents but his 458 Italia is a nice color (looks like a wrap). Ferrari has a color similar to this too for the 458 Italia, more like silver with a blueish undertone.

    I believe you're thinking of grigio alloy, which is a little lighter than the Bieber car. In fact the first Scuderia touring the US dealerships was in grigio alloy. I love modern Ferraris in that color.
