Let me know if there is anything I can do to help. We have a shop GT-R now, so we have learned tons about those cars.

Cobb just got a 2012 last week, so I know they are working on it.

No, no mark-up. Most guys in SoCal are buying them out of state.

No. It's the same car. In low light its a real dark blue, but in the sunlight it changes to a lighter blue. It has a lot of metallic in the paint.

Ummm...if it's a lease then why does it matter? You will just give it back to the dealership after you're done with it
