    saw 430 Spyder on Local LA TV KTLA,,paint SCRATCHED on TV!

    So, i was watching my local morning News Show in L.A. today. KTLA Channel 5. They had C. Van Tune showing the new 430 Spyder loaner that is making the rounds at all of the ferrari Stores and TV shows. Its the only one in the USA.
    So his segment has him kneeling near the front of the car wiping a freshly oiled California Duster along the front corner of the car. the guy is totally excited about the car. At this point he puts the duster on the ground (broken Asphalt) and its picking up all sorts of tiny rocks and dirt. He is talknig about the car and is completely oblivious to what he did or what he is about to do. After he is done talking. He picks up this dirty-rock-filled california duster and proceeds to rub it into the paint. Numerus times!. WHen he is done with the segment you can see a few foot long deep scratches being picked up by the morning sun!.........YIKES!,,,,,the guy just damaged a $230K plus car on TV and is completely unaware!

    And you wonder why you some car mags get such ridiculously low accelaration numbers . They drive 'em like they don't own them and then complain of faulty brakes or recalcitrant clutches or balky gear changing as they pass them around to the different media !
