    Hello everyone!
    I picked up #1699 on Monday, June 19, 2017 from Colonial Honda in Chester, VA (just outside Richmond) for MSRP! I added a few accessories that I am waiting to arrive: door visors, illuminated door sills, illuminated console, and a car cover. When I picked it up, I had them leave everything wrapped, inside and out. I also didn't have the front plate mounted, even though it is required in VA..

    Here are a few photos from the dealership that were texted me by the GM:

    And once I'd gotten her home, still wrapped :spaz:

    The next day was tint and her first wash:

    you can see them there and in high resolution :thumbsup:

    Sorry for the long post and thanks for reading it!

    I'll actually leave that on for a little bit- I want to give them recognition for actually giving a great experience! I did tell them not to add on a dealer badge, so I figure this will do for now lol

    So beautiful. And not mounting the plate does make a difference.

    Once your car was close to delivery did they try to move from msrp? How did you manage to get it for msrp? Good stuff.

    Ohhhhh good to see that the exterior protective coatings stay well intact even after driving it home...I kind of had this back-of-my-mind fear of it flying off and blinding me or blinding the person driving behind me :rofl:

    I think I am lucky in that they didn't add anything over the MSRP. It was my best new car buying experience to date and will buy from them again, even though it's 100 miles from my home lol
