Congratulations on your new ride. Great pics and very Ferrari like color. Looks great.

Coming to the wipers leaving foggy film on the windshield, I do experience this whenever the outside temperature is lower than the inside temperature. In such situations, I first use the hot air and then turn it back to the cold air. This does reduce the foggy film on top of the windshield.

They are stock. Came with the car itself. Dynamic or Emotion version has a different version of wheelcaps.

Can you please post some interior pics, as I want to see how the dash without the stock audio system, ACC and the silver console.

A detailed review is awaited since you have almost completed run-in by now.
Will shoot the interior pics a little later. It does look decent enough.

I agree to that as well. The full black front grill and empty fog lamp holder on the active variant looks fabulous on the GP. The silver ones on the higher variants look and feel plasticky and cheap.

Default not satisfied with the pics!!!

May be its the Grey / over cast skies preventing you from taking good pics.

Lets head to Parigi / Anathagiri Hills or to Nalgonda

Sagar: few questions...
1.Have u removed the plastic covers off the seats,sun visors,hand brake? If not what is the ETR (estimated time of removal)?
2.When will those Lemons come off the front grill?Will they let them dry off till one can make a pickle out of it?
3.Lastly will you also be tieing that golden sash (supposedly a holy sash) arounf the Steering (for an holy spin) or on the rear view mirror for a (Golden Horizon behind)?

All these questions because now you own a Italian beauty and you gotta give some Italian charm to it and not spoil the Indian way....lol

Nice pics and the wheel caps look awesome.

Oh boy! Oh boy! Ram! Here are my answers,

1. The plastics are still on. I have strictly been told by my parents not to I am thinking if I should go for leather seats or stick to stock fabric.

2. I so damn hate those lemons and that thread. But I HAVE to keep them (parents) till they rot off and fall or some kind soul comes and plucks them off.

3. Yup, its tucked away nicely behind the RVM.

There are somethings we cannot evade from, like these. My parents have a lot of belief and faith. After all I can compromise a bit for afterall, I wouldnt have had a GP if it wasnt for them. So such small issues and not an issue for me.
