Default Carmine .2 GT3 manual - just off the transporter - pics

My carmine got to the dealer this afternoon. The pics are rough but those of you waiting for carmine, here's a sneak peak.

The car gets prep'd on monday before going to have its PPF done.

Silver stitch. IMO, the guards red stitch didn't do it for me.

Great choice. Too much red with the stitching. The platinum stitching is very unassuming/neutral and it works very well especially with your PCCBs

All, thanks for the kind wishes and compliments. Carmine was a bit of a risk for me as I've never bought a "red" car. I've mainly been into Gray / Silver / White / Black . Carmine was a tough call which I eventually settled on (with much consultation with friends) because nothing else in the current palette was doing it for me. After seeing some of the colors starting to appear on these shores, I've come to the conclusion that it's hard to dislike any color on this car! So far I like them all.

Thank you Jimmy. My preference would have been for a totally neutral (gray/black) stitch and stripe, but as we know, that's too much to ask for. I was concerned how the sliver would work out, after seeing it I think I'm ok with it. Not ideal but not bad.
