    Just spoke to my dealer to spec my Stradale and took the stripe plunge. I asked for official confirmation that it really is painted and is smooth to the touch (since I've only seen the Euro-prototype w/stripe in person and this had a sticker type stripe).

    So its:
    Rosso Scuderia w/Stripe
    No Stereo
    Alcantara Red/Black interior

    And that's about it - don't need colored calipers or luggage :) & I'm sure I can find a less expensive fire extinguisher!

    Sometime in April when the snow drifts in Boston have gone - perfect.

    Assuming it doesn't fall off the boat :-(

    Very nice Dan. Congratulations on confirming the order!! I cannot wait to see, actually hear, the 360CS at the next gathering. I personally like the stripe as it adds a different touch to the 360 to differentiate it from the standard 360. Nice choice!

    The Battery Charger is also available as a dealer option and is "somewhat" less expensive that way :) [Like the extinguisher]

    Dan, the stripe IS paint and you CANNOT feel the lines. I felt one myself! Smooth as glass.

    a race car for the street, so why not go for the racey stripes, would have done the same if in position to buy one. Surely looking forward to see it.
    In my opinion the shape of the 360 is JUST a tad bit too short in profile, in the same way the McLaren F1 roadcar is (ie. I am not critisizing here, but the LM ver.sans rear spoiler looks more right to me) Adding a stripe as you have just ordered makes the car look longer and sleeker. Nice little optical illusion.

    May I ask how much extra for the stripe?

    Just cannot get that early image of the blue CS with the stripe option out of my head. Anyone got that picture?
