1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Could be a bad detail job, photo setup/lighting, poor paint job, or something else entirely, but that green 458 looks plasticky... :confused: not a great look.

    I was thinking exactly that this morning. I was stopped at a red light and this sweet dark blue Honda Accord pulls up. Driver had his sunglasses on, smoking a cigarette, and his seat raked all the way back so you could barely see his head.

    I thought, man, those Hondas are definitely the final word in cool luxury.

    That Ferrari green, is a non metallic color, so I wouldn't be surprised if it looked like that url.

    Just google Ferrari Verde British

    I've always thought that BRG looks best on, ahem, British cars. How about a Jag F type or AM Volante with a tan interior and tan top?

    Sales of Kia Optimas seem to be booming down here in Northern Cuba. And their drivers love driving at 100 mph to showcase the awesome horsepower

    Whoa, surprised to see another RL owner here.
    I've got a 2006 with close to 100K miles. It's a kind of a null vehicle to drive but it's been comfortable and trouble free.
    The AWD does well in the snow. I've long since given up trying to get the voice command system to understand me.

    You should check to make sure it's had the brake master cylinder recall done.
    The door handle sensors for the keyless entry are supposed to be problematic but I haven't experienced any problems with mine.
    Also, if two people with keys get in an unlocked car, it seems to almost invariably pair with the passenger's key (i.e. wifey's) so the memory seat will try to crush you and all the presets will be hers.

    I actually have only spent 30 minutes with the car so I don't know ANY of those types of features, such as the seat position memory based on key fob, etc.

    Will definitely check into the brake master cylinder recall, thanks for letting me know.

    Trouble free driving is really what we're looking for. I figure down the road if I need something with more excitement I'll scoop up an inexpensive 2 seater, such as an S2000 or Boxster S.

    What tires are you running? Impressions?

    You've convinced me.

    From now on Candy Apple Red is only for apples, Gunmetal Gray on gunmetal, and lastly only babies may now be painted Baby Blue.

    I know you're being sarcastic, but I wouldn't be 100% opposed to that scheme.

    I hate everything that Bieber represents but his 458 Italia is a nice color (looks like a wrap). Ferrari has a color similar to this too for the 458 Italia, more like silver with a blueish undertone.

    I believe you're thinking of grigio alloy, which is a little lighter than the Bieber car. In fact the first Scuderia touring the US dealerships was in grigio alloy. I love modern Ferraris in that color.
