L is not needed for downhill.

Robert Iorio said the Auto Grade Assist will hold your speed with no need to touch either pedal and that's when you're not in cruise control.

And if you use the pedals to speed up or slow down, auto grade Assist will match that.

How do you know he didn't put it in L?

Maunakea is calling me! I can hear it. Look for a video of an infinite blue premium AWD MME climbing the mountain and coming back down again (successfully I hope) sometime well after the snowplows are put away for the winter (yes snowplows).

Actually yes. The average temperature on Maunakea (or Mauna Kea if you're clinging to the old name) is -2C (28F for those in the USA or Myanmar). There is snow up there a good deal of the time. That's where all the observatories are and while most of the astronomers work remotely in either Waimea or Hilo, all the engineers and technicians need to be up there regularly. Hence snow plows.

Maunakea is 4,207 meters high (13,803 ft for the metrically challenged), with another 20,000 ft/6,100m below sea level. Big ol (dormant) Volcano. Now picture an infinite blue AWD ER MME up here ... next summer. ;)

Can this count as evidence that the "metallic tinted clearcoat" transforms Infinite Blue into a color shifting badass?

Wow - the range of colors on that set of pictures is extraordinary - may be in real life your eyes remember and still can see blue but there are fifty shades of different purple, grey and blue there. May be thats what the name means? Infinite shades of blue:)

I wonder how much of the difference in colors we're seeing is due to the metallic clear coat rather than the underlying color base coat?

Idle curiosity is all.

The metallic clear coat is what drew me to this color, for THIS reason. I like the idea that each time I see the car, it will look a bit different/new while it mildly reflect its surroundings.

The other offering with metallic tinted clearcoat is the Rapid Red. I think it looks fantastic in certain photos. It's just that when I see them in the wild I am less enthusiastic about it. There are times when my eyes see it as hot pink or just pink. Same thing happens with the Mazda Red but overall, the Mazda implementation is much better.

how about you and your simple base 10 measurement go drive on the wrong side of the road. And take Jimmy Carter with you (disclaimer: not a political statement but history statement)
