The biggest issues I've had taking photos of it is just how bright it gets in direct sunlight. Now that the rainy season has fully started here perhaps I can get better photos due to overcast (people hate it, photographers love it)

3) 291
4) DD

Picked her up last night. First manual, so having a tough time at the moment, but I'm optimistic that I will be driving smoothly soon. Hopefully my clutch survives.

Sorry for the poor pics, not great at photography.

Beaut!
Going to pick mine up tomorrow.
On my wish list was some clear side markers, but with your pics, I actually like the contrasting orange on the side.
Going back to the AUS spec version, looks very bland with the clears.

Anyways, congrats! Looks awesome.

I've driven Manuals my entire driving life and it took a couple days to get the hang of this one due to the weird bite point. That and its sometimes hard to get it into low gears at certain speeds. Other than than that you have a great gear box to learn on based on my 6 days with the car.

Thanks! Hope you have a great drive home tomorrow. Your right about the orange color, mixing well with the blue. Hoping to add some more orange, to mimic the iconic gulf livery in the future.

I think I am either going to just accept the orange as a tertiary color to the blue and black, (maybe paint my calipers to match the orange ) or I will try to get the dark black looking LED ones to make it match the rest of the black accents.

Had to have my friend drive it the 2 1/2 hours home from the dealership in Maryland to NJ. He came to the same conclusions, but was able to pick it up pretty quickly. I drove the last 11 miles, and stalled too many times to count. Thankfully it was past midnight and the streets were clear. I'm Stall free today though so slowly making progress.

WRB for guys. Hyperblue for chicks?
Just kidding...sorta.

It's a little to baby blue for my liking. But I guess I won't judge until I see one in person.

orange and blue always go together. It really is amazing how different this car looks depending on the amount of light in the picture. Can't wait to see one in person.

It will loosen up with use but still maintain that nice notchy precision. There are several cheap and easy things you can do to adjust the clutch. I was going to but got used to it and now other manuals feel weird to me.
