    I could live with Giallo and tdf stripes. But no stripes?? Not a chance.

    The problem with the Pista there are zero allocations if you turn down yours even if the factory painted it a different color.

    The factory always blames the dealer even thought the specs in modus are correct.

    My dealer ordered a white Portofino and the car came in red. This happens several times a year. I am convinced at the start, middle and end of production there is nobody at the factory that checks that the car was made as ordered. Most of us have been to the factory and it is amazing how this can happen when you only make 9,000 cars a year.

    In my view this is Ferrari saying “ you dealer made a mistake” we are Ferrari and we are superior to you and you should be happy we even allocate cars to you. When errors like this occur and the customer turns down the car, the dealer has zero recourse with Ferrari. The dealer try’s to sell the car to another customer. In the case of the Portofino, the wife actually liked red over white and the customer bought the car as is.

    Luckily, my Portofino which had several special items was done correctly. My fingers are crossed for my Pista. It’s TDF and hope it does not come with a yellow stripe otherwise I will have to sell it to the University of Michigan!!

    That’s great they corrected the error
    Were they sent with the base Grigio wheels? Just curious to know if my interpretation of the first photo is correct as those are the wheels I’m planning for my spec
    Thanks

    You probably shouldn’t be seen in a pista with a stripe like that. I’ll take it off your hands for no fee ;)

    It was delivered with the dark grey wheels, first picture, this did not match my spec as the wheels were meant to match the centre silver stripe. They changed to the standard silver wheel for me to correct matters.

    Still no update here. No pictures either. Seems Ferrari might be a bit too far stretched right now. Several mistakes on cars and lack of updates.

    They should. Wheels are the easiest things to change.
