I still find it crazy that the wheel option is more expensive for you guys down in the states, while up north here the b&p has them listed at $700. But to add the upgraded tires costs us an extra $1595.

yeah...I hear you on that & I think the same thing was mentioned on the forum post in question.

You described a very rigorous rust-proofing, priming, baking, painting, and sealing process - and I don't doubt that at all. My question really goes to the routine maintenance in my garage....if the hood in the picture dents from the hand pressure of pushing it closed, how sturdy will Bronco be to the hand pressure of applying & buffing out wax???

...or should all that type work be done with an electric polish buffer & a Very gentle touch?
I'm pretty sure that the dent was made by something quite a bit more forceful than hand waxing, I will check it personally though!

It’s a shame you can only get those wheels and tires with the Badlands.

For those asking why the colors don’t appear similar to other shots of the A51, it often comes down to exposure and white balance. First shot below is the original posted by the OP, and the bottom is one I edited very quickly by increasing the exposure (brightness, if you will) and decreasing the warmth of the colors by adjusting the white balance.

So basically what you're saying is either way it looks good as hell

So for those who have seen A51 in person does it look more like the top or bottom picture?

Doesn't really help but thanks. Here is looks a bit like robin egg blue. I prefer the slightly darker shade that is on top.

Color is closer to the bottom one, but that one is still darker than what I remember. Pictures I took with my iPhone are very close to what I remember.
