@Emozine, I know you want the Bright 5-Hole wheels and are trying to swap. Question: have you thought on the option to power coat the current Dark Tecnico's into OEM Bright?. It's about a $600 for the set and the power coating they do in some good shops is the same process at the wheels factory. I'm asking because I'm thinking on that, too.

Yes, I've flirted with this idea. If I'm going to keep the tecnicos no question I'll paint them bright. If I can't work out the 5-holes I'll be looking for a powder coat shop...

The brake dust is crazy on a QV with dark wheels. Can’t imagine trying to keep the bright ones clean.
No doubt! My 2018 brights got visibly dusty after a couple of braking events. So. Much. Dust....

That looks beautiful and right. I'm not usually a fan of red cars unless they are seriously track capable, like a Challenge Straddle, but that looks amazing with the exposed CF roof.
Enjoy it!

You know, I was kinda "meh" about it. But when I saw it in person in the sun. WOW. I'm with you, why WOULDN'T you get it? I was also "meh" about the CF mirror caps, but in combo with the roof they sure pop!

Gold wheels. Hmmmm. I'll have to photoshop that. Agree on the classic combo.

The FIAT 850 and the 124 Coupe are 2 cars I had access to when I went to Italy over the years.
My uncle had a baby blue 850 all rallyed out....and my cousin had a beautiful red 124 Sport Coupe`
they were very good driving cars, just maligned because of the FIAT badge

WooHoo! I'll be picking it up tomorrow. I've posted about trading those tecnicos for bright 5-holes. Offer still open, though I'm in discussions with a couple of members now.

I'm not sure I wanted the exposed carbon roof, but it might just grow on me...

The tecnicos are so much better than the 5 hole. I’d gladly swap my dark 5 holes for the tecnicos!
It's home! That new car smell is something else...

Yeah, it's already growing on me. It does look sweet....
Beautiful. What colour is that?
