Had a white 428 when my black 435 was in for its annual maintenance. Not a fan of white, never owned one, but it did look bigger than mine. Did not notice any height variance.

Good info for the next guy. If you are not prepared to walk away on any type bad deal you are going to get killed. For many car buying is to much an emotional issue & not enough common sense.
