    Both of these items are not on the list you have uploaded but LOGO (Shields) and LEDS (Carbon fibre wheel with LEDs) are two items in the UK that impact resale (price and speed), YMMV. You can also get the LED option with an all leather steering wheel as a custom/tailor-made request.

    I know a number of people that would only order a new car with full electric seats and I think that mindset is outdated. IMO the racing seats are very comfortable and when combined with the lifter option are a better choice. At the end of the day it is about personal choice, your the one sitting in them.

    There seem to be 2 sides to this, some guys will only buy a car with racing seats and some guys will not touch them as they are uncomfortable for them, from what I have seen racing seats cars seem to move faster if both cars are of a similar specification

    Why do most choose the bonnet insert in matt black? Why not go with the body color? Enlighten me...

    I do t like racing seats because I don’t wear a helmet when I drive. I like having the normal headrest of regular seats...

    To trick the eye into thinking the hood is shorter than it really is. The designers at Ferrari must have decided that it helps balance the proportions of the car, and I agree.

    In my opinion the racing seats are a better fit so to speak for the F8. They are also awesome for track use. If you intend to drive a lot and most of it is for long distances then comfort seats make more sense. Your intentions might come before resale thoughts.

    look at the Yellow F8 and the Silver F8 in the thread above. The black matte trim breaks the posterior arc of the painted bonnet curve, instead of a perceived constant curvature like the yellow F8. Small detail to add a bit of visual depth at certain angles.

    It makes the bonnet looks more streamlined with the front.

    ADAS. Curious to understand which components of this system are being spec'd. I am looking at the BRAD component only. Thoughts?

    I don’t think so, the ones I’ve seen on the Pista looks to be painted...some have said its a decal. Others that actually have it on their F8 can chime in....

    I looked closely at the pics of the Tributo at McLaren in Charlotte and there appears to be a distinct seam. Leads me to believe it is a separate piece of the hood so as to accommodate an 'insert'. I am going to guess it is plastic...

    The exhibitor cars I saw at the factory (Universo, Sept 2019) had it (quite sloppily) painted on. Later cars are rumoured to have it as vinyl sticker.
    I ordered mine without, can always apply later if desired. Hood is one piece, no plastic trim.

    Yes there is a distinct seem. I was going to leave it as is, but it almost looks like something is missing without the bonnet insert. Thats why I may have matt black PPF inserted there. I don’t think it’s a plastic insert though, someone can chime in with the car.
