    Looking forward to you crossing 30k, then 40k, etc. Of course with the washer fluid running low you may be up the creek for a while!

    Picked mine up from the detailer yesterday (paint correction, Graphene on wheels, windows) and dropped her off at the wrap guy’s shop for a full coverage of Suntek Ultra. She will finally be home on Wednesday. The Suburban will be kicked out of the garage once again.

    Who knows? I may still be in the honeymoon stage and if it sounds good...go for it. His comments are below. It does look fantastic though. I can see how some people like to look at their cars just as much as drive them.

    “Graphene Ceramic Coating is the newest formula out on the market. It is much better than the Ceramic coatings that have been out. Adams Graphene Ceramic that I use claims to protect up to 7 seven years but that depends on how the vehicle is taken care of. It claims to protect up to 1500 degrees as well. The surface has to be prepared for the coating. It has a deeper gloss and will withstand more punishment. Less prone to water spots, acid rain, and bird droppings.”

    Love to see you put miles on that thing!

    I hope to have my new one by this weekend since the weather will be nice down here in Houston. Fingers crossed!

    Hope you're Ferrari driving soon, McG.
    You still shooting for a T? I drove my first turbo F car yesterday. This bad boy.

    F8 Spider.
    Sound not as good as NA, but no turbo lag. Thing is a rocket!

    Yep. I have a 2017 T that should be shipped here this week.

    I can only imagine how awesome that F8 was to drive! Was that part of the drive experience that Boardwalk was doing?

    Glad to hear that. Can't wait to see her! Post up pics when she arrives.

    There are a bunch of demo yellow/sterling blue F8 Spiders making the rounds of the F dealers. It was pretty awesome. You should snag yourself a demo drive. You will be trading up in no time!

    Tom I like the yellow one in the picture. I was contemplating a grey one at my dealer the other day and I really like the design.

    I agree. I think it's one of the better looking new Ferrari I have seen in a while. I liked the interior much more than the Roma. Did you drive the F8 Spider, Mario?

    Tom I didn't drive it and that's why I'm curious to know what's your impression of the F8 on the road.
