Just purchase RS60 Spyder

I just traded my Boxster for an RS60 Spyder. The sport exhaust is awesome. This car had turbo wheels on it and in my opinion they all should have come with these. This car is great. Here are some photos.

The 2007 Corvette is my other car. I got lucky and married a gear head. She is in to cars as much as I am.

Congrats! Those wheels are gorgeous.

YES it is. You'll have to do the hack to leave the sport exhaust permanently on, rather than just when the sport mode is on.

That's actually the first RS60 I've seen w/o the stock wheels (very tedious to clean btw). Turbo's look good! Def shows off those rotors better.

On the other hand, I myself am sorely tempted by the new Box Spy wheels. Delicate and light.

Red/red is the best choice (I'm biased ). But watch that hot Texas sun, or you'll be driving pink/pink soon.

I love red interiors. I even special ordered my Blue Vette with red interior. You do have to leather care them all the time with the Texas sun.

I'd pick up a can of Raggtopp protectant ( or some other good UV top protectant) or like Gibson said the top could turn a lighter shade. Your vette isn't a Z06? I could've sworn I saw a small scoop on the hood, but it was hard to make out.

I would have bought a ZO6 but you can't take the top off. I have the top off more then I would use the extra power. 400HP was good enough since the top comes off. Trade off I guess.
