    Indeed no holding back... but that makes a terrible car IMO!!!
    Truly terrible. It's the absolute opposite of a clean spec. Someone ticked all the boxes, way overdone.

    I respect your opinion. I like it... Don't find it overwhelming. A little over but not overwhelming. Still my favorite is the Bianco Italia Pista with brown seats and tricolore details, I posted a while ago. .

    It’s a bit much for my taste as well. Sometimes less is more.

    Don't be alarmed. I've seen far worse cases than that one. I would rate that one as acceptable in comparison to certain others. No wonder there is so much talk going on Fchat suggesting Pista prices aren't holding - I mean just look at some the examples for godsakes. Some of them will cost an absolute fortune to recover.

    Problem with this one is that it's a rolling showroom for all very popular available options, so for some it could even pass as a *highly specced unit*. But it's an impossible amalgam. For starters, it's usually black roof OR stripe, not AND stripe. Otherwise looks so busy. Same with all the rest of stripes and tricolore details, usually nice in a clean car, here just add to the mess. The yellow calipers+black wheels is a personal pet peeve, but even if you like them you cannot deny they add to the mess, again... So, shall we spec a clean alcantara racey interior to compensate? Why? No need, much better 2-tone every-single-part.

    I don't mind it. It may be seen as a little excessive here and there but overall it works. Its the right color, not too overly done with red on inside. Outside is fine although would be better w/0 the black roof but kinda still works. Don't mind the black wheels and yellow calipers on red - plenty do. It all generally works. I think if I was going to lay the axe into a spec there are plenty of others worthy of laying it into well and truly before this one. Maybe you need to go back over the thread and take another look. This one is in many ways brilliant.

    I guess we'll have to agree to disagree, then ;)

    Sorry I think you are nuts. The car is beautiful. (Dont care for the interior or the rear view mirror treatments though I will grant you that).

    I hate all alcantara interiors. Meh.

    You want everything but forgot the shields. Then once you got it you said, crap I forgot the shields. Then you get stickers of shields that are twice the size of the real shields. Don't know.

    Velocity in Honolulu is an awesome dealership in a cool location. Well worth the stop when there on vacation.
