    Dropped mine at Mike’s on saur day. He says 4-6 weeks. A guy was picking up his car as we were dropping ours off. As far as color goes I’m going with Mini Cooper 870 electric blue, which is the color on the 289 on the FFR showroom. My CFO saw that color and said “that’s it”

    Outstanding job !

    I love the look of it with the larger sidewall tires, 15" I presume?

    Thanks Bill!

    Yes, those are 15" wheels. I'm also a fan of the larger sidewall on these cars. The tires are pretty good, no complaints so far.
