Just got home from the dealer , picks to follow tomorrow . Platinum Tri Coat , with Shale / Brownstone. Nice and quiet , very comfortable . I like that it feels like driving a car , vs my 2011 Explorer that felt truck like . Cant wait to be able to play outside with it a little and learn all the nuances of cue , and such , as well as a good coat of wax. One thing that does feel very strange is the very subtle massage I get in my ass every so often with the seats.

You shouldn't need or want to wax your brand new car. It's even in the owner's manual. Just enjoy your car and keep it clean.

If you cross the centerline it will vibrate the seat.

You may want to reread sect 10-90 in he owners manual. It says do not use aftermarket clearcoat sealants and waxes. It does say you can hand apply polishes and waxes. Waxes are highly recommended for any car and can greatly extend the life of the paint.

Congratulations!

Now you've got a new masseuse too.:tongue2: You'll get accustomed to 'massaging' soon and I have found the Driver Awareness Package actually very useful.

Enjoy!

I don't know if your CUE has the latest update but after my update my voice command works great now! :)

Hi Marc. I was told it did have the latest update by my sales manager , as they did it as part of the PDI. My climate icon is a snow flake , I was told that is how you can tell if the software is the latest. The phone I use is A Samsung Note 2.

Congrats on the new SRX

I am trading in a white Platinum Ice 2010 AWD Performance. I am looking at your photos and getting a little sad lol. The white was a real head turner on the highway. I am picking up the 2013 Black Raven Luxury later in the week. I am beginning to wonder if going black was the right choice.

Hey Kuya. You will love the Black Raven . White was not my first choice in colour , the Black was. How I ended up with the White was that I wanted the Brownstone interior , as all my other cars have always had light colored seats with grey or black trim. The only SRXs around with the Brownstone interior were Platinum. I must admit it is very rich looking, same color as the ATS I picked up for my father in Feb. A good coat of Mothers this weekend at it will shine.
