Great car
I have the same one with same color combo but i made few changes like putting black kidney grille and side vents instead of chrome and trust me it is well worth it as it changes the look of the car
Enjoy!!

Yep, agreed.....black grilles, side vents, and exhaust tips. Beautiful car. It will make the color pop that much more.

Black grills ordered
I'll keep my side vents as I have Carbon Fiber package
For some reason I like stainless tips this time around, black maybe nice but not much as contrast with carbon fiber makes them pop!

Black grill arriving today
I got front camera and not sure I'll be able to DIY this time around!
Yours certainly looks way nicer with black grills on

One of the more beautiful photo shoots I've seen in a long time.
The U.K. Magazine 'CAR" would have really good photos enhanced and these pictures are every bit as fun.

Humbled
I am a photography enthusiast as well at heart!
But hey can't take credit, it's the car and nature that we're simply breathtaking and I was capturing it! Little processing done if any!

Congrats on the new car. I see you picked this up from Sewell. Saw this car several times at the dealership and always thought it was a great color combo. It sat at the dealership FOREVER...so glad you grabbed it (and hopefully you got a good deal on it).
