Happy Birthday

My car was born one year ago today!!! Just checked and it was Friday the 13th. I sure hope that doesn't mean anything. Other than a bad HUD, nothing yet ... knock on wood

That probably would have done it for me as well ... that said, this car was exactly what I wanted, so I don't think Friday the 13th knowledge would have made any difference at all

Actually there diffrent colors, just a tad diffrent. Mine is Crystal Red Metallic, or Claret Red Tint Coat depending on what information you find about it. Its a 2013 color. Since the pigment that they were using for RJT was coming from Japan and after the sunami they could not get it any more.. Unless Im mistaken but I could be...

Mine is also Crystal Red Metallic ... and, actually, I am with you on the Red Jewel, that would have been my "perfect" color, just a little darker. Red Jewel ended with the 2011's
