I have a red LE which I only took delivery of yesterday. It's a brilliant drive and the 'popping' noise of the exhaust as it up-shifts is sublime. It feels wider than it really is at first and you need to spend some time setting up the wing mirrors to get a good rear view as the bulges of the rear arches present 'blind spots'. The interior rear view mirror is pretty much useless as the smoked glass screen behind the seats mean that all you see is the engine. The thrill of the drive is just immense and will make you smile. So far I'm just up to 500 miles. I took a cheeky day off work today just to drive it.

Maybe manettino's recent move to Monaco gives him a better delivery lead time.

Or perhaps his 458 Spider or Road-racing 159 Diesel gives him extra privileges:

It's stupidly fast, especially if you select the F1 style 'launch mode', before you know it speedo is registering in excess of 100 mph and you think you are doing about 50 !!!!!!!??????

I would post pictures but I operate an android tablet and the AO site does not like this. Even my Cup avatar had to be loaded onto an old PC and then re-loaded to this site before I could get the image to register. If anyone knows of another way I will bore you with as many of my 4C photos as you like !!
