But I've only seen that colour outside. She then corrected me and told me it was Titanium.

When Chris came back from having my car sent down to the GT-R pick-up point, we talked about how similiar Titanium Grey was to my car (DMG) under that particular lighting. Considering how busy they were yesterday, I don't think they swapped cars around, but maybe they did.
Sorry mate, I have a huge, humble apology to make to you and the other posters who insisted the Black Edition car in Middlehurst's showroom was Titanium.

I've looked again at the full size version of this picture and decided you were all correct!



Funny how the camera can pick up differences the eye can't. Looking at them live, I would have bet thousands they were the same colour!

Sorry again. No hard feelings I hope!

Steve at Dymag is a great chap. They sell Carbon wheels as standard on a lot of cars.

Unsure if you guys are aware but Dymag were the sole producers of Dymag wheels in the Eighties for the 6R4 and when Group B was banned it nearly brought the company down.

I've had two sets of the Magnesium alloy wheels refurbed there. However as mentioned their work these days is all Carbon. DYMAG - Manufacturers of High Performance Wheels for Cars and Motorcycles

Personally I would keep the car standard.

Picture of the tractor wheels after being refurbed (car now sold).

Yes, there was one in the workshop.
So exactly what carbon bits are available at the moment?
I didn't get sent a list of any? (not that I was planning on spending any more money at the moment. I haven't even sold the 456GT or Z06 yet!)

These are the bits from the list:

Air intake piece £400.00 + VAT
Bonnet vents £200.00 + VAT
Wing vents £180.00 + VAT
Side Skirts fitted £1200.00 pair
Front carbon lip spoiler £750.00 + VAT
Rear exhaust apron £800.00 + VAT
Wheels
Carbon Dymag wheels fitted £6000.00 + VAT set

I was gonna just get a few then i got excited and ticked all the boxes except the wheels. I hope its worth the money.

Just to add to that. If you are thinking of getting any carbon, Middlehursts have some photos that they should be able to send out. Mine are hard copy and don't have a scanner to hand. Soon as i get mine ill post some photos up though.

The bonnet and rear wing (plus some other carbon goodies!) are supplied by Knight Racer. The car pictured is their demo car and after seeing it in the metal (carbon?!) yesterday, i've had to extend my already sizeable shopping list!

The weave was perfect, and they are 100% carbon fibre, not just a skin over some ropey fibreglass frame.
