Ferraris cost a lot of money.

But so does caviar.

It amuses me that people associate quality with cost.

A Ferrari is not a quality product. Never has been. Its more like a fashionable pair of shoes.

The paint on my Getz is better than a Ferrari.

Would be interesting to see what the earlier models had. I'll have to look under the Stradale lid next time.

In any case, my point was that Ferrari paintwork was average. It's disappointing considering the money you pay.
All 360's had ppg
Everything looks better in carbon fibre

Ah yes, It was the PPG and Glasurit paints. Don't know why I thought of DuPont  :doh:

My 2002 360 Modena has the PPG Grigio Titanium sticker under the bonnet, repainted same colour 2 years ago as original was not doing well.  Have never seen a different paint manufacturer on them either.

Not that I give a crap, but because I have an "ardent red" Lotus I've noticed several threads on Lotus boards saying it's the exact same as "Ferrari red". Not sure exactly which Ferrari red they allude to, but FWIW having seen them side by side you'd have to be Sherlock Holmes to pick the colours/depth apart.

That's because when a lotus grows up, it wants to be a Ferrari  :D

There have been multiple variations of "Ferrari red" available year in, year out since the early 1970's. There must be hundreds of variations on the hue now.
