She looks great. Now do I understand you correctly, that you drove it all the way back to ID in December? How were the passes?

Yes I did travel home to Idaho in December!! The weather was great, sunny skies from CA, thro' Nevada, Arizona, Utah and Idaho, not a bit of snow on the road. I took the I15 all the way, not the most exiting road but nice scenery.

I'm guessing you are referring to the "Polar" part of the silver, right?

Thanks guys. Yes, Perfectlap you do not see many Polar Silver ones. In fact I've never seen one in that colour. They must be out there of course, but I presume the numbers are quite low.
