    Awesome photo's Stradale! Your 430's interior is beautiful! Congratulations! Did you sell your CS?

    Re: Picked up my F430 last week. Some pics here.

    Thanks Mike. Yup, sold the CS.

    Re: Picked up my F430 last week. Some pics here.

    Car looks great!!!

    Re: Picked up my F430 last week. Some pics here.

    Such a beautiful car Stradale. I can't get enough of these posts. Great photos as well

    Just out of curiosity, at the meet, did you happen to see any 6spd F430s? I'm really curious as to how many are really out there. I read some statistic that said 10% but that might even be outlandish.

    Re: Picked up my F430 last week. Some pics here.

    Congrats, hope to see it soon on our LI roads!

    Re: Picked up my F430 last week. Some pics here.

    Beautiful car - congratulations!

    Great photos.

    Sad to see the CS go I presume? Do you still have your 997?

    Re: Picked up my F430 last week. Some pics here.

    STRADALE, did the CS fetch enough for the 430 or did you have to pay anything extra to get the car?
    The more I see the car the more I'm impressed.

    Re: Picked up my F430 last week. Some pics here.

    Beautiful Car Stradale, CONGRATS

    Re: Picked up my F430 last week. Some pics here.

    Wow, I like it! Definitely!

    Congratulations!

    A little bit but not that bad. If I didn't have the excitement of getting a new 430 I'm sure it would be tough to let the CS go. Yes, still have the 997 S Cab.

    That's great to hear! I hope you're still going to hang onto her for a little while. How about some pics of them next to each other? I love those kind of photo's!

    I paid sticker on both cars. The original sticker on my CS was $197k. The sticker on my 430 was $225k (because of the $17k for CCM's & $20k in interior options). I traded the CS back to the dealer and got a few dollars more than what I paid originally. By trading to the dealer instead of private sale I saved $18k in taxes on the 430. I only had to pay $1750 in total taxes for the 430. Hopefully that answers your question.

    Thanks Crash, I'm really happy with the way it came out, without ever seeing what it would look like the gamble paid off.

    Thanks guys for the nice comments.

    All depends. My dealer said if they make a 430CS I'll get a car. After having the F430 a short while and really enjoying it I'm not sure if I'd go that route or wait for the next model. Guess I'll have the car anywhere from 1-2 1/2 years. I never had the opportunity to get both Ferrari's together for a pic. My salesman asked me to bring in my CS because he had a customer interested and that was it. It sold in less than a day.

    I know what car I'm buying should I ever move to the US . Regarding the successor, everybody here says that it will arrive by 2009 at the latest, so it will probably make for some great timing - finish your 2+1/2 years and get the new one .

    Hey buddy.

    What do you use to clean the exhaust tips? Something like a fine polish? Usually my sports cars are clean as clean can be but been so busy driving the car haven't had time to really go over her. After this weekend & the run on Sunday she's a dirty girl.

    Hi STRADALE (got to change you nick now, eh? ),

    I've got a special paste to clean metallic surfaces, but to be honest I don't see much difference if I use it or just clean the tips with a cloth. I also don't think they get too dirty, as some chaps at Fchat claim. Biggest problem at the F430 exhaust IMO is the condensed water, that is black from the exhaust fumes and unfortunately drops right onto the car body beneath the tips. (just have a look at your pic )

    Not sure what I should do about my nick. Guess I'll just leave it.

    Thanks. Yeah I saw that stuff too. I haven't cleaned it off yet I was going to wait till I wash the car, the stuff doesn't stain the paint does it?

    Hey, check out this invitation I got: I go every year, it's about 2 miles from my home. The P4/5 will be there.
