Thanks for the comments guys. I've been set on the color since the videos of a Pearl Blue one at Fuji surfaced pretty early on. People really like this color combination and often compliment me on my decision, but I just tell them I cheated.

Still aiming for delivery this week. Naturally my car arrives during a really busy time period for me - probably the busiest I've been in several months. I haven't been posting on here much either.

I'm not really that comfortable with the idea which is why I didn't do it on my F. I like the idea of the protection, though...

I built a custom heating system in my current place and that was just for my F. I guess I may have to do A/C now... but I'm gonna tell you, warm weather is a long way away here.

Thanks for the compliments!

Thank you gengar for letting us share your new toy with the world! You have great taste, that is my interior combo of choice! It definitely fits the "F" theme. I can't wait for you to take pics of it on your side of town.

So lets do it...more pics!

Gengar, any significance to the allocation number you chose? BTW, I got to see that red one at McGrath, while my car was in service. Pleasant surprise to say the least. Gorgeous is an understatement. Definitely a top 3 color to have!

I absolutely hated that red LFA... meanwhile back on the fence again
Maybe I should go with fresh green and be done with it.

No significance - I asked to be added to the list as first available production.

I definitely prefer Pearl Red to the normal Red (just don't tell McGrath that). The normal red is just a little too aggressive for my tastes, even more so IMO than say Ferrari's Rosso Scuderia which I also dislike.

Now Fresh Green, that is an awesome color. Definitely among my top 3-5 premium colors, so I hope you're not joking.
