    Great result with the wrap. I put mine on 5 years ago and it's not moved. It does last[emoji106][emoji106] jealous with the caressing space you have around the car. I had to give my space to gym stuff.

    Looks great. I need to sort out mine at the back. Noted.

    I have one complaint however. That two car garage is now one car?

    And today at the Italian Passion for Speed event in Cardiff Bay, parked next to the ex. JayKay La Ferrari (car is now resident in South Wales). Must say, I don't like the colour on it.

    First time I've been back here since the first event 2 or 3 years ago and a much more comfortable experience having the barriers around the cars

    Annual charity run last weekend. Conditions dire, a tractor would have been more use..

    The route took in the elan valley this year, the dams impressive in full overflow.

    Some of my photos have disappeared, here's one after cleaning last week, The car has only been back on the road a few weeks as we had a 5 mile travel restriction in Wales! Great to back out in it, It's such a good car.

    This shot highlights some of the body lines, Pininfarina did a fine job on the 458. The new Ferraris have (IMO) definitely lost elegance in their design. The Pinifarina Battista is what an evolution of the 458 Ferrari should be (would have been) looking like now, stunning, elegant:

    I'm relatively young (41) and can't see me buying a new Ferrari model in the future, if I did change / add car, I think it would be the F12 & backwards. This is not due to finances, but due to a combination of the design / engine, but more so due to a loss of Mystique by the brand since the sacking of LDM and the Public Listing. They are making far too many models, the launch of a new Ferrari whetted the appetite for years, unfortunately they seem to have adopted the McLaren model.

    For me, LDM maintained the Mystique, had that direct link to Enzo, and controlled production numbers and new model launches perfectly.

    Mike (good to "see" you and hope you guys are all well?)

    I agree, with the above. I think the F8 looks better than the 488, but I just cant get excited by the interior and all this ipdad dash stuff. The Battista was up at one of the local petrol head haunt last year; and whilst I never saw it in the flesh there were a fair few pics only, and whilst I couldn't care less about anything electric (other than my Makita drill!) the styling looked stunning. They all seem to be saturating the market place with models and specials, which at the end of the day will pop the market; especially now I would think.

    If I could (and I certainly cant) the only one of the current line up I'd like is the 812 GTS. I have asked my local dealer to make sure somebody buys one in blue, with crema interior and Daytona seats, willing to sell in 5-10 years time

    The concept photos look nice but the last shot from the back could've been anything. As I read the page from the bottom (latest post) upwards I actually thought it was a BMW at first glance, due to that thing near the rear window. I too can't stand the iPad dash and wouldn't buy a car with one. Ferrari need to stop that asap as it looks absolutely stupid.

    It’s a difficult one with the driver interface because what SHOULD be driving the new car market is largely the advances in the human / machine interface. We have just done a concept car that takes this up another notch with the drivers emotions in ‘race’ mode being projected into the ambient lighting of the car along with human ‘systems’ tracking. Think fighter pilots G-suit type connection for track work. Of course those familiar with the aerospace world know that we have had ‘fully glass cockpits’ for decades. The idea in fighter aircraft was primarily designed to reduce pilot workload and focus on the many task(s) in hand and in many ways the automotive sector has not quite followed suit. For sports / supercars I have been continually underwhelmed by the lack of progress in this area. I think the right electronics could dramatically enhance the driving experience but a lack of imagination and Luddite attitude by many OEM’s has failed to give the enthusiast driver features they would want.
