That said, it does very well elsewhere: the gaping jaws at the front along with the the wide wheel-arches give it a very aggressive poise (if this is what you are after, you'll love it); the wheels are spot-on, very tasteful (I was considering 18" ones, but I'm so glad I came to my senses); Jerez Black is an enigma and continues to elude photographers - I think the colour is fantastic and demands viewing in a variety of settings in real life prior to ordering, but it does delineate a car whose lines are much more prominent in Silverstone II.
Objectively, the car has attracted very few interested looks from folk so far (with the exception of a couple of policemen who wanted me to show off for them!) - clearly it does not really have that "wow" factor (perhaps it would in AW) but it manages to look very purposeful without looking at all riced out.
Thank you for you honest and objective point of view...
