You make a living out of what you get...

...but you make a life out of what you give!

Hey gang I just joined this evening. I am happy to be associated with this group.

It is good to know we all share at least one of the same passions!

As a first time Ferrari owner, now I need to learn how to drive this beast.

I look forward to being a resource to everyone and calling upon all of you for answers to my Ferrari questions.

Thanks St. B!

My company, Avatier Corporation, sold a lot of Identity Management software (self-service password reset and automated user account creation software) this year to pay for this thing.

I am trying to get carbon ceramic brakes installed now.

More pictures and VIDEO to come once they fix the Video link for Firefox.

Regards

That interior looks awesome :thumbup: I can't tell for sure from the pictures but the seats almost look suede are they? What are you planning to do to personalize your car?

Alcantara, not Suede

Its super cool material. I believe it is more durable than suede.

Make sure you turn off your sound on your computer before you click on this link.

http://world.alcantara.com/newsite/americas/index.html

People tell me it is typically found in the Bugatti Veyron.

http://www.bugatti.com/en/home.html

I cannot find it mention of it on the Bugatti site. Anyway, I am glad I got it. It is a lot less slippery than leather.

CUSTOMIZATIONS
1. Heated Seats
2. Radar Laser Shifter
3. Lots of ClearGaurd Front / Rear by the convertiable top
4. Skid Pads
5. Non-Reflective Front Lights
6. New Carbon Brakes and Yellow Calipers

Alcantara Dash & Radar Laser Shifter

Your dash looks cool. The prior owner went nuts with the use Red Alcantara. He put it everywhere dash, daytona seats, daytona firewall, doors, dash, etc.. with black carbon fiber accessories.

At first I was overwhelmed but now I think its pretty cool to have a pimped out Ferrari.

I need to check with the dealer to see which Radar Detector / Laser Shifter they installed. I just told them I wanted the best thing on the market that their clients have successfully installed that could be built-in and hidden.

Yes, this thing supposely jams frontal laser tagging reducing it to merely 100-200 ft. It just warns on use of Radar.

I also bought Veil Laser Stealth Paint

http://www.1stradardetectors.com/acc...alth/index.php

I don't know if it really works but the ad's say so. It also will darken my front lights making them look smoked, which will be cool for this black beast.

I am sure I will have a bunch left over if anyone wants it, just pay for shipping and tell me where to ship it.

Never herd of such a thing sounds like good old snake oil lol
Let me know if it works like many I watch to much Mythbusters and they say there is no paint that works but who knows.
I take it you live somewhere radar detectors are illegal, You should look into a Valentine One by far the best radar detector they have one that is a rear view mirror very cool.
