It might not matter all that much if you're getting a wrap on it, but Black is definitely where I'd go. White just gets too dirty too quickly, especially if you're spending any time in snowy climates.

Random question. Does anybody know if it standard practice for dealerships to change/flush fluids of trade-in vehicles before putting them back on the used car lot?

I think that depends on the dealer and milage probably.

I think I read that a darker color is better for wrapping. I don't know. That's why I'm being picking because I may not ever get around to doing it.

So far my best offer is 5% off MSRP. I'm trying to get someone to go to 9%. I heard that's tough on AMG's, though.

Do it. The ride looks badass. Whats a few grand at the end of the day when you are looking at a car at that level?

Id also go black btw. Some of the hardest parts to wrap are the mirrors and the handles. If you go black, you can leave those un wrapped, keep the top black, and it will look great.

i.e. Like this beauty :wink:

I was told in the past that Mercedes dealers have about 5% to play with sans any sort of discounts. Im not sure if that still is or ever was true but If it's a highly sought after model 9% could be pretty tough.

I might be changing employers soon and I'll have a 45 minute commute each way on a 70 mph freeway. I currently have a work car and only drive about 5 minutes. So if I do change jobs, I'll need a new car. Don't want to spend a heap (it will be the second car, other car the wife has is the family vehicle). Want something comfortable in terms of seating position, relatively fuel efficient and a little fun (without costing an arm and a leg). Can buy new for about $35kAU.


Have you considered a Golf GTI or Golf R?


Not really -as they are about $10k and $20k more expensive respectively

I actually really like white for certain SUV's, but black on that model looks awesome.

admittedly not a fan of either the 86/brz. but theyre also not really that quick for what they are. honda civic si's are quicker, and cheaper (here at least). id also buy a mazda miata over an 86/brz. but if youre a fan of the 86/brz, then go for it.

My 15 STI is going in for some more goodies. Among them a much bigger Turbo and Front Mount Intercooler and a little bit more power.
