Ferrari 456 pop-up lights

What do you think of these?  I saw a silver 456 yesterday and it's been ages since I've seen one.  I'm usually a fan of pop-up lights but they looked funny on the 456.

My favorite 90s Ferrari, which is saying a lot. The 355 and 550/575 were much better cars, and very beautiful too - especially the 355, but the 456 is just so classy and understated. The dark gray estate with turqouose interior that belonged to the Sultan of Brunei is one of my all-time favorite cars.

@Alan: The Sultan of Brunei wagon is all sorts of awesome but that green interior is nauseating.

@F1O: So who else is gonna win this season? Kimi, MSC, Grosjean?

It sounds nauseating, and it SHOULD be nauseating, but for some reason I love it.

They weren't all autos, most were manual. The early car with metal, airbagless steering wheel and row of ancillary gauges was one of the best ever fitted to a Ferrari, vintage or modern.

Canada should a McLaren, Red Bull or Mercedes circuit. Probably more so Mercedes since it has two DRS zones and tight corners. They had pole in tight Monaco and the two DRS zones just play to their strengths with their trick rear-wing.

I think the window for Lotus and Williams to win (again in William's case) is closing with each race as the front runners are getting on top of the tire issues and getting their updates on their cars. So I think it'll be hard to see a Kimi win from now on. I would love to see it though.

I'm probably completely wrong in all of the above though! Ha!
