Nice car and a definite welcome. It's always nice to hear the dealer tech's perspective, especially regarding the more experimental amongst us.

Coral Red??? I thought that was Venetian Red Pearl? Either way it's a sweeeeeeeet color (not just because my car is the same color <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif">).

Is that the color that they had in The Saint movie?<BR>I used to think they had the Saffron color. This is a cool color, the look can be very distinctive depends on the angle and lighting.

Yep, it's the same color as the one in the Saint. I know this because I have that movie on video and I keep it cued up to the point where Val Kilmer has to make his QUICK getaway in the C70. Except he has the euro spec side turning lenses, WITHOUT the amber reflector. And a different shift knob...Ok,that's bad, I know, but does it help if I say I bought the movie WAY before I got my car? <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif">

The Coral red sure looks very different under the sun. It can be deceiving, I can see why some might think it's the Saffron color.<P>c70pusher: Top this...I'm gonna get myself the pin they had in the movie! LoL~~! j/k...I'm not that sick yet.
