    My dealer did a good job of matching my White Lightning TriCoat.
    It is the same type paint as yours... just a different color.
    There is a base tintcoat, then a topcoat, then the clearcoat.

    Re: Grille Question

    The matching colored grille comes standard on the Premium and as an option on the lower level. If you go to the highest tier, they don't offer the colored matched grille because the car comes with the adaptive cruise control. If the car has adaptive cruise control they don't offer the color matched grille.

    I totally missed this question when reading through the first time.

    You are totally correct, UPF is the RPO code for bluetooth integration

    Re: Grille Question

    PM me your VIN and I'll check

    adaptive cruise control uses a radar behind the emblem to tell how fast traffic in front of you is going
    and it will basically keep you going at the speed you request or the speed of traffic in front of you
    (and you can set a distance you prefer to follow at also)

    because the radar is behind the emblem it makes the grilles different
