Actually there is a black one in the showroom now. I have to admit I did drive by after hours on Saturday and take a peek at it. I was there for maybe 120 seconds, and I saw 4 other cars pull up and do the same thing. It was at that point that I no longer felt quite as pathetic. BTW if you happen to have the VIN number for my car, how did you get it, and please PM me with it. After all, it is one step closer to ownership Thanks.frayed said:The first delivery and yours are exactly the same car, save for VIN (from what I understand).
OK, Andrew and Neil, I didn't get a call to drool over the paint. What gives? j/k I guess I'll have to save the saliva for MeanTT's car. LOL.
I agree, I think the black is a little muted, and a little understated. To each their own I guess. It is a beautiful car, but I am still happy with the ardent red (since Laser Blue wasn't available). I like the fact that they have a unique color at the dealership though, I think everyone has seen a lot of Sy AR and CO, not that that is a bad thing though..JeffersonRaley said:Just got back from looking at the one in Autostrada's showroom. They were closed, so I had to peer through the glass. Wow this is a cool car. Every time I see one it surprises me.
The black looks great, but I can see where people say it always looks dusty. A non-metallic black would be a little nicer IMO. No clear bra on this one, but the stock protection in front of the rear wheels was very easy to see against the black.
It's not really the dirt that is the challenge but rather the swirl and hazing marks that are left behind all the time. It's an endless game of polishing over and over again in an attempt to rid of the persistant swirls which usually makes them worse.girlracer said:I don't mind that you always have to always be cleaning black. As long as it's well polished with something that beads water (Zaino for example), you can get away with just a quick hose down every few days, and a car duster inbetween.
The black one at Autostrada already has light swirl marks on the hood... err bonnet... err... radiator cover.1FASTMX5 said:It's not really the dirt that is the challenge but rather the swirl and hazing marks that are left behind all the time.
