Hello, everyone! Let me have the pleasure of introducing you to Isabella, my new (to me) 2014 GranTurismo Sport, decked out in Nero Carbonio metallic and Rosso Bordeaux.

131996


Still waiting on the title to register her, but right now, I'm focused on fixing the sticky button problem she's developed. :\

131997


Planning on keeping her stock for the most part, save for fixing the sticky buttons and replacing the old stock infotainment system with something a bit more modern. She also needs polished to remove the swirlies, and her driver's side sun visor needs fixed (doesn't remain snug against the roof when put away).

131998


Overall, I'm delighted. I paid a bit more than I wanted to, but I also knew that this color combination is quite rare to come onto the market, and this is my preferred color combo, so I was willing to eat a bit more of a premium for it.

Here's hoping I'll get to take her for a spin real soon. :D

I liked the Rosso Corallo color too, but it was a bit too intense for me to imagine living with day to day. I preferred the Bordeaux because it was the red interior I wanted without that same neon intensity. (Though, admittedly, maybe I'm just getting old.... XD)

I'm in the process of finding a way to remove the sticky buttons and replace the infotainment system. The sun visor on the driver's side needs fixed too. Any ideas on where to start?

Yeah the bordeaux is much easier on my eyes as well. I'm not a fan of the rosso corallo as I find it's too bright for my taste.

Welcome and congratulations on the new GT. I like the contrasting color interior.
I probably paid a little more when I bought mine as well, but it had all of the customizations I wanted (wheels, brakes, carbon fiber spoiler etc.). You'll be glad you got exactly the color combo you were looking for instead of regretting settling for a more common one.

Thanks for the bulletin! Not sure if it applies to my situation, but I'll take a look at it. It looks like someone unsewed the visor along where the arm connects and did a real bang-up job patching it up. My guess? Whoever broke it originally thought they could fix it and did a real half-assed attempt.

Hey now. Isabella is my car's name.

Nero Carbonio with the precious bone parchment interior.
Well, Elizabeth was already taken by my daily. I was originally gonna go with Isabelle, but Isabella was more appropriate for her Italian heritage. :LOL:

Sorry to say but I don’t think anyone broke it I have a 2014 and I have the exact same problem with my sunvisor on the driver side I’ve seen a few other ones on lots all have the same droopy visor never stays all the way up on the driver side at this point becomes normal failure
