Congrats and good luck on the new R. I'm waiting on the 2021 to see if it's worth trading in the RS.
Sorry to hear about the eye Kim.
Though I’m sad you got rid of the RS I completely understand... AND if I was to replace mine I’d get an R as well.

Good luck! That Black is gonna be hard to keep clean!

Thanks, bud. It's a long story, but my "eye" is technically fine. It's more my left *side* than my left eye; I basically see the same blind spot from both eyes; weird, I know.

Yes, I've had black cars in the past (528i, S4). They are grime magnets. Lovely when clean, but rarely clean. Unfortunately, one issue is that the dealerships are starting to run out of cars. Not quite out, but they're not getting more Rs. I could have hunted for a blue or white car, but I like black well enough (truly beautiful when clean), it was there, and the price was generally fair. Truecar came up with an allegedly below market number and the dealer nearest me (literally less than five minutes door to door) matched it. My Ford dealership was hell-and-gone over in Seattle.

Thanks, man. To tell the truth, I like the cockpit UI in the Mk 7.5 better than what I've seen of the Mk8 UI. The new car appears to be all digital. I like having buttons and knobs for heating control, volume, whatever typical high-use functions. I'm not that keep on everything relying on the touchscreen interface in a car.
