Don't thank me until it's proven true! All iron alloy rotors will oxidize a little, but it depends on a number of factors as to whether it's visible enough to be cosmetically undesirable. If you're parking indoors you're way ahead of the game. Controlling humidity in that space is a big part of the outcome... if it's not climate controlled, consider adding a dehumidifier to cut the water in the air on rainy days.
Live in Florida with basically 100% humidity. So yah…. Not sure I can convince the wife we need to AC the garage to keep my rotors from rusting but I guess I’ll start preparing the case….

…and would you not agree that you deserve a heat & humidity free walk from the interior of our beautifully air conditioned home to our impeccable new vehicle my dear?

I rest my case your honor.

Before you guys and gals get carried away, this is purely for a bit of fun on my part: I shopped a few different cars, (including the dealer event Magma Emira) to Dark Verdant (or my aproximation of it). It may not be accurate and it's nothing official, but I enjoyed doing it for myself and I'm happy to share for a bit of fun. They're all a tad different and if they're accurate, it's more by chance than anything...

Ignore the people in the background that look like they have facial gangrene, I got lazy with the editing and couldn't bothered to correct them.

Thanks again for creating these. After seeing DV in daylight the other day, I think you’re pretty close.
I’ve gone with yellow calipers & considering adding a yellow stripe along the bottom of the doors, just above the lower black pack, to follow the curve towards the rear wheel arch. Something similar to this…

Would you mind having a play with photoshop to see how this might look? Cheers!

The problem is that the real car does not look like this. This has the wheels stretched to the very outer limits and no wheel gap. It looks the way a real race car sits, not a street-driven machine.

It looks incredible, but likely unrealistic.

This color seems similar to san remo green in BMW - it may be a bit darker

@TXEMIRA = sad face. Don't be sad, I think we can get it closer while still maintaining full driveability and no running on fender wells, etc. I am all about stock-like ride quality and comfort, etc., but I want it to look the part of a supercar, at least what one looks like in my mind 🤪

I am probably doing wheel spacers and lowering cups to get it to look as close as possible. I hope that whomever does the same shares their results. I will be way behind many of you getting a car, so if someone does it first, please share details!

I’m sad the configurator stance isn’t reality. Ride height or wheel gap or whatever really shouldn’t need anything aftermarket on a car like this IMHO. We should get it the way it looks in the configurator. Those mm matter.

True, but to be fair these images are just from a 3D model that is not the same as the configurator. Who knows, maybe when they finally get an actual production car for us to see it will have a stance like the Evora, which was really nice.
