    AdP won't do wheels. I tried to get gloss wheels on my Perf and at first AdP agreed and wanted around $4k but prior to production they told my dealer it couldn't be done. Same thing with custom brake caliper colours, it can't be done at the factory.

    In regards to specs, I feel the STO looks best in a darker colour but again it's a personal choice. I'm not a huge fan of the two tone contrast, my fear is it can look good in the configurator but in real life it might not look good. Too bad we can't see real life pics of the various specs, supposedly there's quite a few pre-production specs at the factory.

    Thanks for the info re: wheels and brake calipers. It’s good to know.

    Agree that one should think hard before choosing a secondary accent colour. I believe it will work where the base car is a shade (white, grey, silver, black etc) but colour on colour is a risky move. They pulled it off nicely with the launch car but it’s basically an homage to the Gulf colour scheme which is a known combination that works. I’m sure a few other colour combos will also work... I’m just not sure what they are.

    If I were to choose a colour for the main bodywork, especially a bold one like verde scandal or themis, the rest of the car would be black. In fact, I’d probably want the roof, engine cover and lower sill/door to also be in black to minimize the amount of green real estate on the car. I’d even consider the STO door logo to break up the green.

    I hear you. But there are so many nice details that’ll get lost with all black.......certainly a dilemma.

    Comical situation - best looking car and no way to spec it, lol!

    Keep trying everyone, it gives me hope. I have zero artistic flair and must rely on others for ideas.

    One of the discriminating features of the STO is the flattened side fenders. They look great in person!

    The decals posted by @SLDriver accentuate them - I think it’s a nice look. Otherwise you really don’t notice it until you’re right in front of them.

    Verde scandal/singh with black roof and engine cover looks stunning.

    For clarification, that code adds the Ad Personam configurator features to the Unica app, or that code simply imports your Ad Personam spec into the Unica app? Thanks in advance.

    It'll import your AdP spec with pictures but you can't edit the AdP options on the app.

    Image Unavailable, Please Login Image Unavailable, Please Login Ok. I will try. I’ve seen the balloon white in person and it is a beautiful pearl white that has a 3 dimensional look I will say that I’m tempted to have all the stickers with the exception of the “STO” branding deleted. Too much going on for my eyes. That might change when I see it in person.
