It's how my 2010 is as well. They got it backwards IMHO. If the trunk area was black regardless of interior color it would show a lot less dirt.

I remember talking to a paint rep back in the 90's about this. He said the FBI asked them not to pursue making it because of ID'ing cars at crime scenes.

Older 350's were RWD only. If you wanted AWD you'd have to look into 250's. I wasn't going to leave 100hp on the table so I went with the 350. Since I bought mine I've driven 250's as dealer loaner...

Yes 077 is 3 stage. A white basecoat goes down first. Then a pearl mid coat. In addition to having to match the white base, the color match is affected by the number of coats of mid you put down.
