Thank you. Wanted to make it a more personalized and a little different. Thinking of painting wheels all high glass black to match exterior details in high gloss black. I contemplated putting HRE's and lowering but think doing change to stick will be just about right.

You will enjoy the DD capability of the TTS, it's a really great car and you picked a good set of options. I am curious about Ferrari's though because I want one but don't want to trade my TTS to get one. If I get one, I will have to garage it elsewhere. I know the Scud was a special version of the 430 but how long did you own it and why did you buy it in the first place? Do you think the 458 is more of at least a weekend car than the Scud? I have looked at Scuds and I always rule out anything with racing seats and that car seems to be standard with the racing seat. The 458 has some good seat options but they don't have ventilation and I find that to be a great feature in the TTS and CTTS, particularly on the track. Was the 458 an option in your thinking when deciding on replacing your Scud? If not, why not?

In my opinion the Scud is an absolute special car. The sound and track oriented driving it provides is second to none. That being said, it's quite loud and you feel every single piece of the road you drive on. I picked it because of its rawness and look. Regular 430's didn't do it for me. The 458 is much more a DD vs a scud. 458 has more options and comfort than a scud. Scud has no insulation and its best for track use. I owned the scud for about 2 years and put about 3000 miles on it. Can't drive it longer than 30-45 mins without getting tired. So I was on the highway and decided to race a TTS a bit and subsequently got beat pretty bad. Decided to take a look at one and here she is.

Thank you for the compliments. Was curious to know if anyone lowered their TTS using stock wheels? If so how much did they lower it?
Thanks in advance

I sold my 430 in March 2015 and am waiting for my 2014 991 TTS in White over Black.
I took was thinking about the HRE P101's in Satin Black.

Has anyone painted their stock wheels?

Congrats on the car. Drive in good health!
