I am not 100% sure but I don't believe it was an option. Even 600s I saw with no "extras" (like one I saw with no radar cruise and no rear seat upgrade/RSES) had this stitching. It all seems to be...

Nice find, CRowe14! There is a TSIB for cracked wood on the console. Whether this is the very same issue this car has or not, I don't know (though I'm thinking that it probably is), but if it is,...

Amen to that! I found my 600 in the PacNW, and I'm on the east coast! Also a '10, but 9,7xx miles (not as much wear-and-tear as on yours ;)).

Indeed it is all about patience to find the right...

There is a known issue with door hinges on many '07s, and I wonder if this may be a factor. Interestingly, the main symptom is difficulty opening the doors.

Having said all this, your description...

Yes, prying gently (in fact, bending the individual "teeth" on the washer clamps) is what I did. Going in, had I known how the emblem was held, I would have most definitely bought new washers and cut...

I cannot comment on the market at the moment, but from the numbers you shared, it doesn't look like you did badly at all.

Very true! I didn't even get that far in my thinking. Paint is also hand sanded between coats.

Quality/fit I would say is comparable (not that I've played with the 2015 LS, but I think it's safe to extrapolate). Otherwise, optional semi-aniline leather is just about the only "extra" the LX...

You can get marginally better and quicker at it through practice (I've played with it a bit over the years), but it is still slow and not practical in traffic, as others have said.
