    I bought my first Ferrari ever and I have been anxiously waiting its arrival tomorrow from FL for a few days now. It's due tomorrow midday and I cannot wait. 2012 red Cali tan Daytona interior. I will make sure to post some pics and share with the group.

    I have tint scheduled for Wed, debating powder coating wheels, but still on the fence, and definitely planning on investing in some upgraded audio/head unit. Open to any and all advice and look forward to learning from the group. Pics to come...

    Congratulations on the acquisition! You will love the California. I use mine at least a few times a week and have done a 6 hour road trip without any issues/discomfort. My co-pilot says its more comfortable than my Porsche.

    Takes lots of pics. It's going to be a memorable day. Enjoy it to the max!

    Free advice - live with the wheels a while, then if you still don't like them, change them up. There are a few recent threads on upgrading the radio, if I am remembering correctly. Finally, drive the heck out of your new Cali!

    Congrats!

    Congratulations on a life decision you should never regret. Every time I get in mine, which I got in 2013 and still have I feel a sense of pride in having achieved a boyhood ambition. That feeling never goes away.

    Good advice, I was thinking the same thing to myself. May hold off until winter and just ceramic coat them for now.

    Very nice, interested to see what you do with the stereo since they’re very lacking in that department.

    Thanks and small world. I am going to move forward and will post some more pics when complete. I like to customize the toys to make them mine.

    Wrap looks great! I was going to wrap mine yellow/black top when I got it but now leaning towards white/black. I don't mind the grigio silverstone but all my other cars have been bright colors.
