Love it great V12, I would really like to have one. The 7 speed stick is so cool.
I would leave the grill with orange, and replace the mirror caps with carbon fiber.

Agreed, just not sure the wife will go for it. I forgot to post a pic of the rear it also has orange trim which I like.

The Orange on the grille area is very light and yes it's painted. I might try a wrap before other solutions.

The Orange accents inside the car should be more than enough for me. More pics when it arrives.

Another great item is that the entire cast is wrapped in an xpel type material by the original dealer in New Jersey.

I wish I had a picture of it before. The A pillar, rocker, and lipstick were red. Tail was white. Those are not the original set of wheels the car was delivered with either.

The original bright finish wheel design was a poor choice on the car. It sat for a while so they threw some styling on it.

I think that was all they could get at the time to fill their showroom.

Secondary cat X-pipe bypass pipe and ECU tune are the only things you need to do. Combined should be good for 40-50 hp

After a long wait, the V12S finally arrived today. A few pics during the unload and the cherry on top is the pic of my 08 V8V in the garage next to the V12S. The 08 will be gone next week and I will miss it but it looks good next to the V12S.



The mods are ready to go. I went the carbon fiber mirror caps, VAP air filters and the chin splitter to protect the front splitter. I will do the X-pipe at some point, but not just yet. It needs to go to my local dealer for a first year maintenance and a new rear tail lamp, the seal is gone and it has condensation.

Congratulations! I just purchased my V12S manual last week, and expecting delivery this weekend. How are you enjoying yours so far?
