    I am not a big fan of stripes but the pista is a little bit naked without...(accentuate the S-Duct)
    I am specifying my Spider and maybe will ask for 2 straight ones ( the one they propose larger at the back is not my cup of tea...)

    I think you need stripes for sure. It makes the car.

    I have to admit, I like both cars (Pista and Pista Spider) also more without stripes. Way better without.

    Thanks TSOYBELIS, ...I like opaco but I am wondering if it is difficult to take care of it ...?
    (I am specifying my Spider and I would like to differentiate it from the coupe...)

    It is hard to look after properly. However if you apply PPF from delivery you won't have any maintenance issues.

    PPF is a must. you can't buff/polish out scratches. You'll ruin it. and no 'blending' repairs or touchup. Whole panel or nothing.
    You're better off putting satin finish PPF over standard paint.

    I have Aluminio Opaco on my TDF. The best approach is to use a clear matte wrap - takes all the headache out of worrying about the paint and you hardly know it’s there

    Looks 100% amazing. Even more so in natural light. Whoever said "red's dead" was plain wrong! Enjoy it to the max.
