Those yellow calipers are sweet, especially with the verde.... Verde is a great color. When I bought mine, the dealer told me that customers were ogling it and asking if it's available -- they all loved the color. Red is obvious, grey and white a bit one note, but Verde Ossido is a nice in between with a dab of color

Agreed, it was the color I gravitated to. It was worth the nearly 10 month wait for this, that's for sure. I was told there aren't many Verde Ossido versions running around because the online ordering system only had the rendering which makes the color look like a dark olive green, instead of the blended grey/green it actually is.

Agree on the calipers and its something I noticed on an OEM level with other brands. Looking high up, McLaren does this and it always looks good regardless of what the body color is. But of course Yellow has been the go to color for calipers since people started coloring them.

Yeah, as I mentioned elsewhere, my wife and daughter picked it and I was worried it would be too green-green. I was very pleased when I saw the actual color was a bad ass metallic grey-green. I love it.

I just wish they gave us better wheels since with colors like that they take away from the overall design. Not always do car makers get it right the first time and Maserati is a good example of that.

I actually like the 21's that came on my truck, but I believe having a color other than black on the brake calipers helps make them pop a bit.

The 21s on the Levante have quite a bit of sidewall. I was pretty surprised honestly. Now the 21's on the Ghibli/Quattorporte are a whole different story.
Thats what i noticed and was a bit turned off from it.
The overall wheel and tire package doesn't do these justice at all.
But that extra bit of tire might mean better ride quality, they can't get away with poorer ride quality from low profile tires like BMW.
