Great video, did notice that the side blades look very easy change and replace, previous posts speculated about high costs and great difficulty in changing blades. Well imho this now looks a piece of cake......:) :) :) :)

When I was there they told me a complete swap (so remove two blades and install 2 new blades) will take about 40 minutes.

My initial order was a black with oxygen :)

Later on I saw the Daytona in person. I liked it so much I changed my order.

So on a black, oxygen please :)

If you have a carbon engine bay liner, then you must compliment it with carbon sideblades as well. Will look good on either Phantom black or Daytona grey.

Its not the changing of the blades that is the difficult part, its the correct aligning of the blades thats tricky, quite fine tolerances of the gaps to get both sides perfectly even, trust me i know....

I did like the silver carbon's very much. That will definitely be cool. But that would be cool also for the whole week :p

Maybe someone could develop transparant blades? :eek: :D

yeah why not transparent.. but I dont think there is much nice to see behind them... but if we couuld see some hints of the air intakes or a glimps from the engine bay.. just from another angle.. then transparent would be very welcome... (rinspeeds 2007 concept was developed to be as transparent as possible.. so materials are around)...
