Please DON'T have yellow calipers on a black 458 - you will take one look at the car and all you'll see is the yellow calipers - they will totally overwhelm the car. Go for either aluminium or, my choice, black - understated? Yes, but classy.

Hi Danny, thanks for the info but that won't be for quite a well, maybe never! I'm just a young pup at 20 years old LOL.

I was just wanting to know the official colour of this car, looks nice on a 458.

Danny- I and many other owners like yellow calipers on dark cars.

GS and Yellow is coming soon

Maybe because its a cloudy day but that Grigio Silverstone looks darker than I remembered it. I am awaiting delivery of my GS California and I too got the yellow calipers, shields, tach and horses on the headrests. I think GS is complemented nicely by yellow elements. Oh well to each his/her own I say.

I saw this GS California (looks the same colour, although a little lighter than the other pic) with yellow calipers.

One of my friends has a Nero 458 Italia with white calipers and it looks very nice! Not a combination that you see very often so that added to the effect of it.

Tom, that's a nice interior.

Monaco, do you have any pictures, it would be interesting to see one with white calipers.

Dealership sent me a few quick pics. Picking her up for the first time on Saturday. She could be a sibling of yours.

So what do you think? Grigio Silverstone with Cioccolato/Nero interior. I am hopeful that the pics showing a darker brown are more accurate. I think the fluorescent lights make some appear washed out and more milk chocolatey.
