    2 fast 2 furious.

    It’s a car not a pinball game. Leave the damn thing alone. You’re already in an F car, don’t embarrass yourself

    I don't think its that bad. At least its inside the car and not under it. Its hard to tell how bright it is, think a bit lower brightness could add a nice ambiance to the car, had something similar in my S63Cab (factory from Mercedes).

    For cosmetic - you can change the wheels, tint the windows and put a wrap on it or on parts of it.

    Mods that I've made to my Cali have mainly been to make it a tad more "under the radar". First, replaced the silver front cavallino with a black one. Second, replaced the yellow wheel caps with titanium ones. Think it matches the wheels better. Third, just got the Scuderia shields wrapped and painted body color. Wife likes it, I'm still on the fence. I think if the mods are reversible - assuming you plan to sell this car someday - and you enjoy them, not much else matters.

    P.s. Forgot! I got Andrew from Exoticare to make me bespoke front mats.

    Thanks. When someone pointed out that the yellow on the shields, calipers and wheel caps were each slightly different, it started to bug me! So, I got the titanium caps. CF seemed a bit much for a GT Ferrari. Can see them here.

    The mats. These are just awesome. Love how they turned out!

    Need to get a decent picture of the painted shields...T

    Let’s see the shields, Tom! My yellow ones are super bright against the nero daytona paint, would like to do carbon but they are expensive.

    I think it is a nice look, and essential here in Texas.
    My Cali also came with the thermal glass option.
    Legal max in Texas. 25% transmission IIRC.

    Thank you. Not as blingy as your LEDs, but I am guessing you are a younger guy than I, so you can get away with it! :)

    Is the windshield tinted also? Mine has the thermal glass option as well. In the past I have had a couple of windshields tinted.

    From the picture angle, the tint on yours appear darker than legal, thus the question about percentage.

    This is currently best pic I have, courtesy of the good folks @ Boardwalk. Per them, it was a bit of a chore to match Avorio.
    I need to snap some pics in the sun, and from further away. Thus far, I am happy with it, and so is the wife. I think it would look better on a darker F-car, as the seams would blend in better...T

    It is not. I could get it tinted - as my wife has an eye condition - but I have not tinted it.
    I got Huper Optik installed on my 911 - which is a clear, heat-rejecting ceramic - and I have been quite happy w/ that....T

    By the way, Miller is running a father's day special, and I saw CF shields. 15% makes the price less eye watering!
