Good call on the 19"s, they're alot easier to clean, and I like the open design; gives it a "rakish" look.
Best of luck, you'll enjoy it. Give the kids "Rick's car Rules" - "No feets on the seats, no eating and keep your hands off the glass". It worked - most of the time.
Great points, Rick. My kids are now 8 and 10, having been weaned on my earlier Bimmer 323ci and current Infiniti G35. They have been pretty good considering their relative youth!
My last two cars had light beige leather and it's just nearly impossible to keep clean. This time went with the dark brown saddle leather interior for the A7 as well as the ash trim. We have similar seats for my wife's Genesis and like it a lot.
Chawk, I haven't found the 3-4 month wait to be a big deal. I knew up front and was willing to wait to get what I want without paying for features I don't. Since I like my current car very much the current swan song is a happy one as I begin to ready the Inifiniti for its next happy owner.
I ordered in November and think a wait until late March is more than fair considering that's it's custom built and needs to swim its way across the pond.
