Mike, excellent color combo and use it in good health, have you heard from your dealer when the 430 Replacement will be out in Europe at all.
430 replacement will be shown in October 09 with first Swiss and Euro cars Jan 2010 delivery, looks fabulous!
Beautiful California, Mike. Breathtaking car! Are you in the U.S.?
Does have winter tires, though!
Body surfacing in second to last picture looks great - makes me think this just might be like many other pininfarina designs that only get better with time.
He's not in the US.
I wonder if the color is Canna di Fucile?
Thanks for heads up Mike, I am assuming you will be one of the first people to have that car.
Yes, a nice combo
Congrats, good color for that car.
I like how you turned the car into a thing of beauty by cutting off the fugly rear end with your photography
Wow a whole 9 posts in, well done.
Welcome to f-chat btw
Dude, you really need to wisen up if your gonna stay around!
Congrats on the new ride! That's a perfect color package given the cars more subtle, everyday mission. I like.
Just curious about the information about the 430 replacement (450?). Is this word from the factory itself or from a dealership? In my experience, dealers (particularly salespeople) offer information that is wildly off. If you believe it to be ironclad I'll certainly take your word!
Just amazing! Cannot wait to see pictures of the white California.
I have an SL63 at the moment and am planning to get the California. But, I use the SL63 as a daily driver. So, I am curious how you would compare the California's navigation system, Bluetooth, satellite radio (if it has one), and iPod interface etc. to those in the SL63. I think the ones in the SL63 are generally very good (big touch screen controls and easy to use etc.). Do you think the California could be a good daily driver from an in-car entertainment and navigation perspective?
Also, how would you compare the dual clutch transmission in the California with the manual/auto transmission in the SL63? I think the SL63's transmission is a lot better than the SL55's but it is definitely not as good as the dual clutch system in my Nissan GTR. Is the California's transmission more like the GTR?
Best colour combo I have seen so far, very nice.
Look at you driving in the cold swiss weather with the roof down! Poser
Beautiful car and color scheme. "Whilst" says British extraction or British education. LHD says expatriate. Fun to play Sherlock Holmes.
I write books for a British publisher. We have an agreement: If he ever edits one of my books to include "whilst", I never write for him again. An odd quirk of mine, most assuredly.
I STILL think it's pretty good looking. Great color. Congrats.
Shes just perfect!
One of the best color combo, imo!!
congradulations the color is grigio silverstone correct?
I guess we never figured out what color the exterior was.
My best guess is grigio silverstone exterior and new Cuio interior. Digital photography always shifts true color especially when there is high reflectivity.
Look at the photos again and focus on the least shiny areas of the car.
Love the color combo! Congrats!
I still don't like it but its always nice to have a new car, so, congratulations and drive in good health..
I am confused, did you see it, or the "!" stands for what the dealer says..
