With the Summit there aren't many choice. Like Ragu ... it's in there.

I did have 4 adds:

Ivory Tri-coat
Ski Grey Laguna interior
V8 Hemi
Skid Plates.

You could get the Platinum Edition, CD Player, Rear seat DVD players and an engine oil heater.

20s are all about the look, other than a slight handling advantage the rest are negatives. Rims bend easier, tires damage easier, they are a PIA to banace correctly and shake if not perfect, they ride rougher, they can be noisier, they cost more. So make sure to enjoy the look lol

I haven't seen the Ivory Tri-coat in person yet... I do really like my 2014 Summit in Bright White but figure 3 years there should be some significant improvements (like when I went from a 2011 to 2014 it was worth it once I got it as I struggled with whether there were enough differences before I ordered it and am glad I did order it). I think I'd do Bright White again with the Ski Grey, V8 Hemi and Skid Plates like you did. Yours looks really really sharp. Enjoy!

Re: 2017 Summit - a few Pix

I like the quilt but can't handle the light color. With my black interior, my roof is light grey and have been worried about keeping it clean. Mostly with my wife who does her makeup in my car every time we go out. Last Sunday we were going out for dinner and as the went for the mirror, I stopped her and opened her mirror myself. She forgot and after finishing her makeup, closed the visor. Now I have a red lipstick stain on the visor. Will look into the Scotchguard for suede.

Bill, back to you. Love the ride. Have you noticed how the suspension is tighter from previous year Summits?

And sorry one last time for taking your space during the build.

Had light beige on a Jetta back several years ago and tried my best to keep blue jean and belt rubs off the leather to no avail. After that car I swore of light interiors for good. Still looks sharp as hell when clean...just keeping it that way is the headache

Mute works the same as it has in 2014 and 2015.

It always starts unmuted. Which I'm fine with.

Only 3 people touch my vehicles. Me, Myself and I.

Both my VW and Jeep Dealer offer to wash it every time I bring a car in for service, no matter how old it is. But I always request not to wash it. Unless it's ridiculously cold out.

I agree with you in that I absolutely love the quilted pattern but I want it in black, with maybe some grey piping. Pair that combo with a grey headliner and I think it would be really nice, and the quilting helps lux it up like what MB or RR do in some of their trims.

It's a sweet looking rig and I'm sure he'll get a lot of heads turning.

Re: 2017 Summit - a few Pix

Now I love the interior color in every way and don't mind the "quilting" either. But I do mind the price to get a light colored interior in a Summit, unlike every other lux ride out there. But that's a complaint already expressed elsewhere. Bill has great taste in how he configured this new ride!
