>I spied one EXACTLY like this at my dealer in ABQ
Hmmmmm... vellly intellestingk!!!! :shock:
Since when it's time to buy it's going to be cash, there's absolutely nothing keeping me from shopping around the country. Maybe I ought to give this dealer a call... since they did it once, they can certainly do it again.
I'm sort of curious about what color it was originally... could it have been a black one? Black would not seem like a fun color to have during the summers there.
I have no idea what the original color was or if there was some other motivating factor behind the paint job... As I recall, I believe it was a DX that they essentially loaded (wheels, tires, A/C, stereo) and painted, which did boost the price on it by ~$2k over comparable EX - I could be wrong on the exact numbers, however.
All it needs is a taxi light on the roof and an "NYC Taxi" decal on the door. haha
I think the IU red color would be cool. I can't understand why they didn't come out with some shade of red, but orange seems popular though. I saw 2 of them on the road today, one of them being test driven. I think today I saw about 5 or 6 on the road, which by far is the most I've seen in one day.
