    My choice for your car would be Blu Chiaro Met (503/C)

    Those Ferraris look fantastic, rich, and limousine-ish in that color

    Blu Pozzi or Grigio Scuro would look smashtastic.

    That looks just a tad lighter than TDF Blue, do you agree?

    Does practical enter into the decision? TdF is my favorite all around color, but if it's a true driver, you'll likely end up washing it (or a Black one) after every use, unless it's a grocery run. Then again, you may do that anyway. Silver and Marrone would be better from that respect. I suppose you can split the difference and go with Azurro Metallico or California.

    That was Lime Rock 2004 - I thought you'd notice your car! I remember chatting with you about 400 ownership, as I'd been lusting after one since the 1980s. Obviously, you didn't put me off.

    Cheers

    Well, I hope you won't hold that against me! ;-)

    Here's an interesting shot showing how the "big" 400i looks next to my "compact" train station Camry, also in silver/black leather.

    Great example to pull out next time someone dismisses a 2+2 Ferrari as being "too big"!

    Pozzi and Le Mans are both extremely elegant shades of blue but do they work for the 365/400 series ? Pozzi, for example, looks stunning on a 456, but would it look as good on the slightly more 'angular' 365/400 ?
    I'm still agonising on what, if anything, to do with my 365 and finances being what they are the final decision will have to wait in any case.
    It's currently the original, and rather battered, Maronne although having looked at the stunning pics of Lee's 400 I'm extremely tempted to leave it as it is !

    Confused from Cape Town...

    I am not really a computer kind of guy so it is beyond my capability, but it would be swell if some dedicated computer guy could photo shop a picture of a 365gt4 in the color of pozzi blue! I'm still not completely sure what color to go with, and time is running out.

    So that's Sir Ivor, magnificent.

    Just by way of comparison, here's a pic of Ralph Stechow's 365 in Rosso Corsa FER 300/9.

    Now red rocks, but can anyone come up with a Pozzi and/or Le Mans blue ?
