    Fantastic. Love the red leather. Only suggestion is to move the shields, they look a little too far up into the corner of the fender.

    Thank you! Measure once; cut twice. I purchased it with the stick on shields and haven't decided if I want to keep them or not.

    It's nero carbonio metallic and I believe the interior is known as bordeaux. This sport seat color combo is inverted from the norm which makes these even rarer.

    Those seats in that color and pattern is probably a 1 of 1 to be honest.

    I think so, too. Almost all of the cars optioned with Sport Seats are Berlinettas. Most are Euro/RHD and some F1. Whoever spec'd this car has great taste.

    I hate all of you carbon sport seat owners. You're so proud of yourselves, so smug, just because you have something everyone else wants. Well, you're not better than the rest of us. Seats don't make the man. In fact having carbon sport seats is viewed in many cultures as a sign of male inadequacy and overcompensation. Just something to keep in mind.

    Stunning!!! Congratulations!
    I would just ditch the shields, I took my stick on shields off and I'm not going back.

    I think the shields look spectacular especially on a black car giving it that yellow contrast - the thin metal ones are almost indistinguishable from factory...but thats just my opinion

    Yep - a gated manual GTS with carbon fiber sport seats is certainly a rare item. I bought a yellow one with large black carbon seats last month!

    You have euro front bumper, do you plant to get the euro rear bumper too ?

    Thank you! I love the clean lines of the Euro front and clear turn signals. I don't think I'll change out the rear bumper. The red reflectors are less obtrusive than the front ambers.

    I love that interior, only thing I wish my car had. Black is nice but a little boring.

    I will say it does look a little odd from
    the side with the rears but not the front. I'd certainly look at doing a euro rear too.

    Otherwise, spectacular car! Love that interior. And it's true red too, not burgundy. Fantastic.

    Thank you! The reflectors are hidden more on a black car, so I think I'll keep it as is for now. How much different is the red vs bordeaux interior?

    I ordered a new set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4Ses and a new Challenge Grill and Ferrari badge. I'll post updated photos when these items are installed.
