Mines been called “The Batmobile” by the grandkids (Ebony twilight with darkest legal tint on all windows) or “The Black Pearl” by a woman at the grocery store. Like everyone else, I get “what kind of SUV is that?’ once a week or so.

So far I have been asked if it was a BMW, an Audi and an Alfa. But only one of those people I would have expected to be car people.

I did have one random guy come to me at a gas station that kind of knew what it was and thought it was cool but I don't think he ever saw one.

There's many. I love it. Here's a few...

After walking by and staring, the person doubles back and asks, "What is that thing"

Good friend, car person, upon looking at photo of my new TourX from the side "is that an Audi?"

my brother, a car guy,, visiting from out West, who recently bought a vehicle as he and his wife are recently retired "wish I woulda bought one of those"

my kids "you did it!, that car is you"

"That's the sharpest car I ever seen" - my colleague.
"Is this Buick?????"-random guy at the gas station.
"My dad had a Buick SW back in the days, but it was nothing like this one"- property maintenance.
I think, I need to de- badge it to bring more confusion)))

Tint was so dark on the windows of that cruiser, you could not see in the car until she rolled down the window.

I pulled into the spectator parking lot today to attend a huge car show in Parsippany NJ. The young guy (18 or so) who was collecting the parking fee, remarked that my TourX was one of the coolest cars he had seen all day. I've had it about 2 months and I've only seen 3 others (one of them was at my local dealer for service). I recently had the windows tinted and it really improves the appearance.

My black, debadged TourX (the front emblem is tinted almost completely black, but at just the right light/angle, the Buick shields barely glisten through—very stealthy, AND the ACC is 100%)

-Mentioned by several strangers- “I honestly thought it was a Tesla from the back!” (there are many Tesla’s in the area where I work)
-Passengers in slow passing cars doing a full neck-twist 180* to the right and trying to decipher the grill- 50+
-My father, the Teutonic car snob looking at the VIN label- “Wow, it IS a German car!”
-The Sales Manager at the Volvo dealer where I work- “Where did you get the aftermarket grill for your V60...?”

Car guy who just rented a different Opel in Europe (guessing it was the Insignia sedan) from a distance of 100 yards, squinting: "Is that...is...is that an...Opel?!"
Sister upon first seeing it: "Nice Grand-Dad car!"
Teenage girls soccer team: "Wow! Cool car!"
Owner of both a car-detail shop and a 10-year-old Volvo wagon, said at a gas station last week: "Is that the new Buick? Wow, it's a looker! What do you think of it? I am due for a new car soon, I need to check these out!"

Conversation with my Dad today about preparing for hurricane Dorian. He lives in the Bahamas so he hasn't seen it in person, but I told him before when I bought it. :rolleyes:

Make sure you put it in the garage, if you get any hurricane. Stay safe.

VHT Nite Shades spray paint, available at just about any Auto Zone/Advanced Auto/Pep Boys/etc. Prep is important, but not as critical as the careful laying of each individual coat for smoothness and desired level of darkness.
