    Mine might be on the same delivery truck. It was status 30 (in paint shop) before the Christmas shutdown so is hopefully nearing the end of production now.

    Yes it’s on the App even though it still says waiting list.

    Dealer said the app is normally a few weeks behind and the pics may even come after the car is here!!!

    My car may be just coming out of paint, status 30. Can you tell me the last 5 of your Vin so I can get an idea about how far behind you I am. Mine is 64465 Grigio Titanio

    I don't think the VIN number has any bearing on the production sequence but others may be able to confirm that. My VIN appeared on the mobile app around mid November (week 47 I think). It was reported at status 30 (painting) on 16th December which is week 51. Production at the factory resumed on the 4th January and I just received the first production photo (of the body prior to painting) this morning on the web version of My Ferrari. My dealer had told me that the production photo's would likely not appear until after my car had been delivered as well so it was a surprise to find this one today. The production process is fairly swift once the shell has been painted assuming there are no supplier issues. I hope to get a status update from my dealer tomorrow.

    It's around 11 years since I was last at the factory when they had just started production of the 458 but I think it took around 2 weeks or less to go from in the paintshop to completion of production. I'm not sure how long it takes nowadays.

    Thanks. I've not seen one in this colour as yet so am hoping it looks as good as I think it will.

    Took the Roma for a quick test drive at Ferrari of Palm Beach yesterday. Was surprised by how different it looks in person versus photos. Quite frankly the car is stunning. Definitely looks better in person without question. The one visual aspect that is much different in person is how the back end slopes down. The HUD detail is remarkable. In terms of the interior, I absolutely love the new dash. However I’m still not a fan of the center console and how it intrudes on the interior space.

    This is definitely a car that looks better in a metallic color and in my opinion Rosso Corsa won’t work well on it.

    The new eight speed transmission is flawless. What a great new upgrade to go along with a fantastic new model entry.

    Definitely more of a GT car than I would have expected as I thought it might be too soft of a model to wear the Ferrari brand. I was wrong!

    The one thing that really stuck out for me was the exhaust. Unlike my old 488, you really don’t hear the turbo in the Roma. It’s a great exhaust note that matches the car perfectly.

    If you can you must test drive this car!

    Any opinions on exterior carbon vs. standard lower trim on the Roma?

    Hello all,

    My car is ordered, specs finalised last week. I was looking at the configuration on the Ferrari phone app, the 3d version, and noticed that under infotainment there is now an option of “wireless phone charger”. I swear it wasn’t there before, and doesn’t appear in any other documentation I have, including price list. I’m in the UK. Anyone else seen this option, is it an actual option, or does it come as standard?

    I'm in the US. Just noticed this option and another option for a heated steering wheel in the 3-D configurator last week, too.

    Sometimes it’s good to go a little later ;). On question above about carbon, I went without on the exterior and I don’t think it’s that noticeable. I am Roma blu so maybe the darker colors create less contrast and thus less noticeable? I spec’d mine more old school GT so it wouldn’t have gone w the vibe.

    Finally heard that my Roma will ship on 1/27. By air. Should be local within a few days thereafter.

    Then prep and ppf.

    I guess it will be a sweet V-day present!

    I have noticed almost no one else has posted about receiving a Roma in the last 2 months! Good to see the production chain open back up...

    I’ve always been told by dealership sales people, in moments of unexpected honesty, that exterior carbon trims are a bad idea for daily drivers, due to the natural wear and tear. And that was reinforced by the Ferrari salesman that sold me my Roma.

    Doesn’t apply if you are planning on just using your Roma for weekend drives.

    I’m more curious in opinions strictly based on appearance and resale aspects.
