I am glad to see the enthusiasm everyone showed in my garage. I shall put up the pictures eventually. My hard disk crashed and I am still getting to grips with the apple OSX. I should have heard people's advice when they asked me not to buy the stupid overpriced Ferrari Laptop!!

It almost seemed like blasphemous material before I saw the word Laptop!
Yes, yes, photos please! We all like Italian curves!

Just remember that the longer you wait, and the more you try, the worse your chances get.

I've also had luck with the "freezer trick"!

I have already given my hard disk to a bloke who I know is good at this sort of jibbery. Anyways, coming back to cars, I wont be putting up pictures of the Ferrari just yet as the kit is only half installed and I want it to be a hush hush project. Too many spotters roaming around london invading people's privacy you know..

Also, about the Lamborghini Diablo, We had it only for a few months and it was an absolute PAIN to drive. The 355 was a much much better car overall. Coming to classics, my mini cooper serves me well. She is on Classic insurance so it is cheap to run and cheap to maintain too. And an absolute hoot to drive. in fact, on most sundays, i see myself reaching for its keys rather than the Ferrari or the Porsche.

What colours are the 458 and the GT3? They are my Dream cars, and hope to own 1 of them some day.
Why dont you download snaps thru your cell camera?
One cant own a 458/GT3 and not have people 'invading peoples privacy'!!!

I know it is available freely, however, people in London get too excited when they see something this unique and then try to track the car down and try and try following it home etc. I have had tons of issues with people trying to take pics inside my house etc. I do not like it.

Ahh i finally managed to dig out some pics from the internet and a couple from the phone.

Here you go.

The 458 pics are from the day the car came home. Parked outside my friends apartment at Knightsbridge.

the porsche pictures are from Kensington. I remember this day well, although for different reasons.

Talk about glittering red! Man, that is one awesome paintjob!
Nothing beats a Ferrari in Scarlet!

About your GT3, any pictures with a better view of the Rear Spoiler?

Just my luck. I am in Bombay on business and went out early in the morning with an old friend and whilst on the new Sea bridge or Sea link as it is called, our car was overtaken by a red Ferrari 458 which was like an identical twin of my car. I had a BIG grin on my face!!

Your cars seem to be quite famous, both shots of the 458 showing up on a blog

Ferrari 458: Xe sang t?i th? ? London | Th? vi?n ?nh

The Porsche shows up as well.

Porsche GT3: Porsche 997 GT3 RS - green/black in London, UK

EDIT: Didn't bother about editing the plates since these are already in the public domain. Also, quite a coincidence, don't you think?

Haha, the moment he posted the pics, I did a reverse image search and found the original posts (which you have linked to) but didn't want to post it here and spoil the fun so early!
