I took the delivery a little over 3 weeks ago and have been in awe with this color.
I can officially say that I'm truly obsessed with San Marino.

I will keep adding more pics to this thread.

I decided to be satisfied with my Portimao Blue and not spend the $$$$ for San Marino, but still drool whenever I see photos. Congratulations on a beautiful car!

By the way, the red calipers work perfectly!

As amazing as these pictures are (really nice work) cameras just cannot do justice to San Marino.

Enjoy!

Car looks phenomenal…

Carbon Seats and 6MT… should be a package offering like executive package.

You should start an "Official San Marino" thread so we can all chip in our shots. Just start it off with some of your shots here. It certainly seems like a color that deserves it own "official" thread. Hahaha

Thank you! Couldn't be any happier with the color combo selection. I was pretty set on the exterior, but I have to give credits to my wife for the interior. She convinced me to go with Kyalami over Silverstone.

Stunning! SMB in person is amazing. Can you (and others) comment on your experience with 6MT and carbon buckets? I'm deliberating on carbon buckets. Haven't tried them. Some say the middle part would be a nuisance. Haven't gotten I put from a 6MT owner. Thanks.

It's under the hood.
Another benefit from individual paint, they clear coated the paint under the hood as well. They skip clear coat under the hood for standard paint.

I'm 6'1" about 190 lbs. I wouldn't get the car without the carbon buckets.

It took me literally a couple days to figure out a way to get in and out. I even don't think about it anymore.

Once you're in, (I'm stating the obvious) they really hug you in place. They are comfy for me, had no complaints whatsoever after spending 3 hour one way trip from our house to the top of Pikes Peak. The middle hump doesn't interfere whatsoever with heel toeing.
And my favorite thing about the carbon buckets, you sit down low.

Go get them!

That looks really great - also a huge fan of the CarPro line of detailing products. Nice combo. Before I ordered my 23 F90 I was considering a full individual / M performance parts G80 in Violet Blue + Kyalami. I think the blue and orange goes so well together - maybe one day have the calipers painted orange to go w the interior?
