    Just comparing top down vs top up? Both are great but I’m drawn to the top up look.

    Yes, just trying to see what other prefer, convertible or coupe look. I think I prefer the coupe look...

    Either one is nice. Custom wheels and suspension enhance the look. Love the black top.

    Thanks. Agreed with wheels and suspension enhancement, contemplating on lowering it with spacers...

    Has it been lowered at all? If so how? It appears to be slightly lower than most stock I have seen, but maybe just an optical illusion with the custom wheels. Is your black top factory paint or a wrap?

    With the top up, the big butt doesn´t look out of proportion. This is probably the only convertible that looks better with the top up.

    Both are great. I really love the look of the two tone coupe.

    What would you like to know? Custom wheels from BC forged, I can send offsets and sizes. Matte black vinyl top, ceramic coated and paint corrected then fully detailed. Novitec suspension from Vivid racing. Don’t forget to have an awesome detail shop and great Ferrari technician or “stuff don’t turn out right”.

    I vote top down among the two pics presented. Of course, I'm not typically a fan of the black roof look on Porto and Cali...T

    If it’s raining the top up looks better.

    If it’s sunny the top down looks better.

    Especially when you are in the car.

    The car looks stunning. Enjoy. Ciao bella.

    I almost never take my top down, already have a convertible, not the T's purpose to be a convertible, at least not in my group of cars. I will not comment on anyone's modifications, none of my business.

    No spacers. I had the wheels spec'd exactly as they needed to be with the proper offset. Novitec has a kit for the Cali...it's nice.

    It has been lowered. The front has the stock 20s but I put 21s in the back. The top is a vinyl wrap.

    IMO coupes always look best but Verts are more fun
