Enjoy in good health and best of luck with the mods (although I think you don't mess with perfection )
Thank you good sir! Loving it so far; definitely near perfect

Couple reasons. The high torque from the diesel is nice to drive, especially when hauling stuff. Drive a lot, so the average is nice.

The 350s are (were) pretty popular around here. Hold value really well, even with mileage. Cult following lol

How do you keep these black cars clean? Congrats on the purchase, and once you drive a P car you will be hooked
Thank you! Definitely hooked. I actually missed having a black car, last car was grey. Detailing is a hobby of mine, so I definitely will be busy keeping this thing clean :b

Especially since MBNA no longer imports diesels. Cool insight, thanks for sharing.

Big fan of the 959 too. The GLS is the most discreet luxury SUV and very practical. My car is black and I don't really take much care of it cosmetically. The dirty look makes it look well used.

Congrats, Aatish. We've had at least one black car in the stable for around 15yrs, but in SoCal it's slightly easier. My first 911 is black too and loving it.
