    Not as yet. Not had more than 2 people in the car recently though. No issues with 2 people though.
    Will update you once I've had more in the car.

    Well I've had a car full today and happy to report that I've had no rubbing issues.
    I am getting my rota wheels refurbed next week which will have slightly stretched tyres
    8.5 inch wheel with 8 inch tyres so minimal really. Will put some photos up if them too.

    Very nice.

    Are you running on 16" wheels?

    How do you find the ride on the SE suspension (which I assume you have)?

    That's the beauty about tastes and opinions. Everyone has one and they all are not necessarily the same.

    I would imagine you have chosen a grey, black or white vehicle for a more conservative approach. I'm not a conservative person I prefer things a little more loud. :)

    Fair comment. Having previously owned sprint blue and racing blue mica I went with a more 'conservative' blue, Estoril blue crystal effect which offers exploding pop effect in the sun and a sophisticated British discerning gentlemen look when overcast.

    Enjoy your new purchase ;-)

    Awesome colour mate!

    Looks like Porsche Riviera Blue to me, though a little hard to tell from that photo. Could be French racing blue but that's a fair bit lighter.

    Yep! It's Riviera blue. Once I get the car, I'll take some pics in the sunlight.

    Ha. It's not designed to pop. It's designed to be driven hard. :)

    Excuse the dirt on the last photo, was just to show the fitment of the wheels when they were first on

    Not sure why two of the photos haven't uploaded as thumbnails but they still work when clicked

    Car goes in for detail before pickup next week.

    I think mine 'pops' a little more than your blue and it's not even in the sun

    Definitely not gentlemenesque though!

    I came very close to ordering Riviera Blue but decided against it at the last minute and ordered Nogaro Blue.

    Do love Riviera but I couldn't live with it as a daily driver for the missus

    Mine in nogaro (again ;) )

    Really need to get some decent pics sorted of mine.
