Kind of late to the party.... but just wanted to share my input on two things i've read.
1) the black grille with white tridion: It's the one thing i'm NOT a fan of on my Prime. I have a 2016 with blue panels and a white tridion. The upper grille is white, the lower grille is black. I keep thinking about one day taking the front panel off so i can remove the grille piece, and plasti-dip either the top one black or the bottom one white.... but at the same time don't want to risk ruining something since i've never taken that panel off before.
2) 3 oil changes in 42,000 miles? I'm sorry, but how is that catastrophically bad to some people? Oil changes are recommended every 10,000 miles. Yeah, there was a bit of a lapse in some of those that he was told, and it should probably have another one done quite soon.... but i don't think i'd say it's HORRIFIC to see that. There was a time or two where i neglected to follow the 10,000 mile mark to a T.... but I just recently crossed the 70,000 mile mark and, knock on wood, have had zero engine trouble so far. I'm thinking i should maybe look into changing the spark plugs sometime soon.... but that's a different story.
All in all, I love my 453.... just as i loved my 451 Brabus coupe. On a side note, the 453 sounds pretty nice without a muffler :P
