Took delivery 1st November.

Details:

3.0tdi.
Brilliant Black.
Sportpack.
Y design 19" wheels.
Hologram inlays.
Black leather/alcantara.
Hill hold.
Advanced key.

Just completed 1000 (enjoyable) miles.
Only one, avoidable, issue - windows opened (twice) when the car was parked and I was 30 yards away in my office. Solution = don't sit on the advanced key.

Welcome! How is the brilliant black holding up for you, out of curiosity? I just switched to that color (don't have mine yet) and am a bit concerned about such a deep mirror (i.e. no metallic or other flecking) black showing swirls, etc.

Edit: Oh, and what the heck are hologram inlays!? Photos?

Welcome and congrats on your new car!

Aluminium hologram inlays are available as an option in the UK. I picked up a brochure when I was in London a couple of weeks ago and noticed that. Below is a pic from the brochure.

Thank you all for the welcome.

Regarding the paint, so far so good. It's Winter in the U.K. so the car needs cleaning weekly, starting with a high pressure jet wash. I understand your concerns though, my previous car was a V35 skyline, your Infiniti G35, the black paint finish was hard work to maintain.

TXcarguy Thanks for posting the inlay pic.
