It actually took three years! I'm actually delighted with the results - the gold is relatively subtle (and matte), almost bronze ... I think it worked great with the Rosso Fuoco, and actually with the interior. I've still got the other wheels to switch to when I fancy a change back though!

I remember viewing the pics of your 458 when you first posted them, such a beautiful colour and it's an itch that won't go away! I viewed the 458 Spider in Rosso Fuoco that's for sale at Bramley Motor Cars but the colour in the flesh is nothing like yours, it's verging on a dusty pink! It's still up for sale 9 months since I viewed it and I wonder if yours is a different hue? I tried to PM you but apparently I have to post 10 times first!

Wow what a car and colour. Wheels wouldn't ordinarily be my cup of tea but this car could pull almost anything off!
