My Fuoco Italia (Warning: Picture Heavy!)

I've recently bought this car, a 2012 model with 7.5k miles, and what an amazing thing it is. I think I'm most impressed at how it can cruise about in auto mode like a luxury GT, and then switch instantly to full mental mode when you want it to!

It was in great condition when I bought it although the paint was quite badly swirled (poor washing technique no doubt), a shame with such lovely paint. I've machine polished the car myself and am delighted with the results. Rosso Fuoco is an amazing colour in reality, although quite hard to photograph well.

I know this won't be to everybody's taste, but I like it: I never really liked the diamond cut wheels (not specced by me) so had them refinished in a dark grey/anthracite colour. I also had the lower sills wrapped in grey, similar to the factory "sports sills" option (which I think nicely "narrows" the side profile). Very happy with the results which I think suits the Fuoco paint very well:

Love your floor mats! I always feel good when I polish my own cars. Time consuming, but I always feel I can do a better job than most detailers. Love the painted front bottom section of the bumper with that color. Looks great.
