I did buy the car. The carfax was clean. I verified the RPO code, which appears to be 8555? From what I can tell this is indeed black.

Anyhow, that'* a good picture of the 'browning' going on. Perhaps there was a bad batch of paint in the factory, or the previous owner somehow damaged that section of the car?
