I couldn't get to the dealer as I was overseas with work, so I asked my son to check it out. He is (amongst other things!) one of the UKs most respected car detailers, judges competitions and has his own signature wax (Celeste Detaglio) made for him by Chemical guys in California. Check out HeavenlyDetail in You Tube for a few examples, including Bugattis, Lambos and all the rest!
Anyway, this was his verdict:
"Ok had a good look.
It's lovely...
They sadly chose the worst colour and wheels, looking past that in white maybe and with 20" alloys in the anthracite colour it would look stunning.
With the 19" on it looked like a typical Lexus from the side.
The build quality is ace as is the paintwork.
The interior is one of the best I've seen and well laid out...
I know you'll probably commented about 20" wheels ride quality but for the premium it would sell 100x easier when it's time to change.
The car needs large wheels I think to carry its architecture.
Overall I thinks it's a beautiful car.
The photos don't really do it justice.."
I think the colour is Grigio or Grigeo Maratea, which could have been my pick......I also think its the same car that was at Goodwood. Pics to follow when I work out how to embed an image from my iPad!

To include photos, upload them to a photo sharing site (like Photobucket.com), and then copy and paste the image code generated by the photo sharing site. It should look like this (without the two asterisks): [**IMG]link of your hosted image here[/IMG]

The forum essentially references the location of your file (stored elsewhere) in order to display the photo here.

That or upload the files to this forum as an attachment when creating a thread by clicking on the paperclip looking symbol

Ok, let's try again!





Goodluck!

Last effort.
I thought maybe using Flickr was no use, but see other pics from this source.
As I'm on a slow connection whilst away at work, I'll leave this attempt and see if its just really slow downloading!

Here David, now that the photos are online I can post them here for you. Flickr is actually one of the more difficult photo sharing sites in my opinion. On their site, one must view the individual photo's page, select the desired resolution, and then right click to copy the image URL. Much more complicated than Photobucket or other sites that I prefer.

Cheers!
You wouldn't believe I work with computers...................
Stuck with just an iPad at the moment in a remote location though.

Thanks for the pics and thanks to DJR for posting!

I used to use Chemical Guys a bunch back when I detailed 5 years ago. I remember I absolutely loved JetSeal 109 and it was my favorite sealant.

But...............................
Having another look, I'm not convinced which of the 3 Grigio "Shades of Grey" it is.
Bear in mind all my sons pics were taken under artificial light. Grigeo Maratea does seem much darker in my brochure than here. However, the Goodwoood shots of what I think is the same car seems a different colour again, with a purple cast at times.
Annoying, as unseen Grigeo Maratea with cream leather seemeda good choice, but my son was unimpressed with the showroom car colour. But then he rates white highly, and some other forums have not been keen on it at all, so it's personal choice. Need to see the dealers metal sample swatches, I guess, soon as I'm back home in the UK.
