Not a fan of stickers on a $100k car, but that's just me.

Jeez look at that wheel gap. What a profound level of incompetence to the ad team/marketing dept. How could this pass to print?



It looks like a 6" or larger gap. What other company puts out pics like this for their Halo product. SMH.

How are these decals worse than the GS decals? I think it's cool

Agree totally, don't know why they keep on trying to reinvent the wheel with some of these terrible special editions when there are so many great combinations already available, missed the boat on this one

This is about the fifth Special Edition thread that I've seen and commented on and it's not looking any better.

However in fairness to others, I'm not a "special edition" kind of guy. I'd rather take the extra $15K and personalize the car my way. I would start with some forged custom wheels and go from there...

I thought they were recognizing the average buyer's age.

Not so thrilled with the Special Edition, but that color sounds interesting, can't wait to see it in person. The $15k price for the package sounds a bit steep for not having that much useful content.
