- 2019 Buick Regal TourX
Pulled into the dealership service area and three service writers said “I didn’t know Buick made a wagon?!” I was thinking “there are two sitting outside right now...”
What a nice man...I recently moved to a new house and was pulling in my driveway after a hike with my son and dog right as my neighbor was walking his dog. He came over to comment on how beautiful my wagon is and told me that he has always been a "Station wagon guy". I started to explain that it's a Buick but it's actually an Opel made in Germany and he cut me off and said "I know what it is."
Brought my new TourX in for state inspection as required to local lube/oil change place. All the other technicians stopped what they were doing and gathered ’round while it was tested.Kid (20's?) at the fueling station the other day - "man, that's cool! Is it brand new?"
I had recently washed it, not detailed, but the Dark Moon Metallic on this TourX with 9k miles - the whole package does turn heads. The kid was genuinely interested, and went to front of car to look - assume he saw the Buick emblem. I told him very briefly it's origin - he had never heard of Opel...
What did you use to tint the front emblem? It looks excellent that way!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...?”
