While I am quite pleased with the standard wheel design, I know some of you will be changing the wheels.

Suggest wheels and I will produce renderings for the community.

Nice pics Aristo! I doubt anyone with a launch edition will change the wheels but I especially like the BBS

Can you photoshop the roof in black please?

Thanks

Thanks a lot! I think if I can get a wrap in a black which is the same as the a pillars I might do it!
My other baby is a bicolour as well so it work well together....

I like some of the modifications, but I can't say I'd change anything about the LE. Even the headlights have grown on me (maybe because I've looked at them so much I've become conditioned).

I am pretty sure that if I find a very good place to do a Matt black wrap for the roof I will do it :)

Hi, the roof indeed looks great. I'm checking the possibilities and what it would cost. What do you guys think? Is it not a little too much? And matt black, or perhaps similar grey as those great-looking wheels?

Looked at some wrapping sites... black carbon look is also possible. What do you think?

I got a quote from apparently the best wrapping guys in the London area and the cost for the black matt (satin finish) roof is £210.-

Pretty good I would say :)

PS I normally don't like carbon look wrap because it is pretty obvious it is a wrap so fake carbon

Sound indeed affordable. And agree on the carbon...

I was wondering whether or not you will see a difference in color once the wrapping comes off? Do you know?

If it's a good wrap it will protect your paint. Honestly it depends a lot on how long you keep the wrap on and how well you take care of the car.
If you detail the car once in a while nicely the colour of your car will not change at all (at least for a few years)

Worse case scenario if there is a slight colour difference after you remove it a good detailer will be able to take care of that

Ok, thanks. I understood from my dealer that the matt white paint on the LE could not be polished like you would do normal paint.
Anyways, you also considering the black side-stripes?

No I think I will only go for the black wrap roof and the Italian flag on the side. What about you?

No, not the stripes, although they also look great in the brochure. Wrap roof, don't know yet. Have a little bit the feeling that the car is so stunning when I pick it up, that it needs nothing more... but I don't know yet. Black roof does look cool. Perhaps after I see pictures of yours? :)
Wrapping can be done after some time I assume.

I am looking at windowfoil which must look stunning on the white car in combination with the dark wheels and carbon details. Also looked for applying a clear bra on the car but didn't a company yet that is able to apply a matt bra.
