Observations

We live in a small rural area just outside the big city. When we get home in the afternoon we generally stay - therefore not too much night time driving. Took a drive tonight and I'd have to say the car looks great at night. The amber lighting is fantastic, the ambience lighting is just right and the Xenon lights really illuminate the road. I also changed the NAV to 250 mile radius to see about one-third of the nation including the eastern edge. The picture on the NAV was outstanding. The NAV maybe weak but it sho' is purty!! I really like this car at night, it really feels like a luxury car both in driving dynamics and overlook looks and features. I'm drinking the Kool Aid tonight...

Agreed 1000%.

I like walking up to the car from the front and pressing the unlock button and looking at the angel eyes in their brilliant bright white. The ambience lighting inside the car is simply stunning....as is the rest of this well thought out interior. The little LED door handle illuminator lights are just another small touch that scream "luxury."

Hey, pass the kool aid.
