    Re: New options for F430

    great pics stradale! the CF on wheel is a bit much for me IMO do you have a pic with none polished wheels, just so i can compare?

    Re: New options for F430

    nice pics ! Thanks !!

    I like the CF, but the mid console is mutch better in leather for me !

    Re: New options for F430

    After all these years, I still love the Daytona type seats.

    Great pics STRADALE! Thanks very much for charing.

    Now, after you've seen many of the new options in person, how do you like them?

    My opinion: polished wheels don't look good , CF is nice but not worth the money (perhaps even a little bit too much CF at the steering wheel ) and tho yellow stitching is nice, but because of the irregular pattern of the standard seats looks better at the racing buckets.



    I really love carbon fiber but I'm not sure if I'll order it for my 430. At first I was blown away with the carbon fiber steering wheel but there's something very nice about it when it's all leather. If I could get the carbon fiber paddles without ordering the wheel I would do it. The carbon fiber is nice for the tunnel but the stitched leather is nicer I think. I also like the carbon fiber drip trays in the engine bay and intakes but think the price is over the top. I'd rather get the CCM's and have something that genuinely adds to the performance of the car and looks from the outside. The polished wheels are nice too but the stock wheels have a richer, high-performance look where as the polished wheels are almost a chrome finish. When shiny like this it cheapens the look somewhat. What comes to mind is how I feel about the Turbo look wheels on a 996 when chromed. I know the guy who owns the Red 430 in the pics. (very cool guy) It's hard to see in the pic above but he also has the carbon sills. Altogether he said he spent $25,000 for the carbon fiber. When it's all put together it looks great imo but I'm not crazy about it for some reason. I think the carbon in the CS fits the car better. Considering what it costs for a 430 with CCM's and loaded carbon fiber the CS'S MSRP seems like a bargain. Especially considering the carbon fiber doors in the CS would probably cost at least double what it costs for CF in the 430's engine bay.

    The yellow stitch - Agreed 100%. I tried to get a pic of the yellow stitching on the yellow 430 w/ the racing seats (that's the pic w/ me in the reflection) because it looked awesome. I think it still looks cool on the standard seats but nothing like how it looks on the racing buckets. The way the stitch looks snaking down the side of the seat along the side bolsters on the racing seats makes it. One of the things that really blows you away is the look of the yellow stitch on black leather on the dash board. Sharp as hell.

    Here's some more pics I found posted by someone else on another forum. It's from the same 430. They make the polished wheels look better than my pics.

    Thanks.
    If you look on page 5 the 430 spider has the standard wheels without polish.

    Re: New options for F430

    I agree, these polished wheels are way tooooooo shiny !
    It looks like a "tuning car"

    hmmm i was always against the "bling"factor on expensive exotic cars, if it shines a lil bit it actually looks quite nice once the car is in motion. the SL65's rim shine quite a bit and it actually looks nice...

    regarding toughness, will you see "swirl" marks on the polished rims as opposed to the normal finished rims?

    IMHO these polished rims are way too bling-bling to me. The standard alu-wheels are just right.
    Even one more thing to thing about with the polished rims:
    If you scratch your rims (well, I hope you never will, but if you should do), if the scratch isn't to deep, it can be easily polished and repainted at standard alu wheels. But with the polished rims it's a PITA-job my dealer told me, so expect to pay a LOT more...

    Re: New options for F430

    You know what I realized today. The FXX has the polished look. From the pics anyway.

    Dammit! I think you're right! Just too much bling-bling-bling...

    Re: New options for F430

    Another pic of the racing buckets, this time with white stitching (interior with additionial CF trim BTW):

    Re: New options for F430

    Thanks. The white stitching looks very nice on the seats. On the dash...I don't know.

    Hi Jack, I knew it was grigio chia, since I read it yt F-chat, but I was just too lazy to change my post.

    Wonderful car, BTW, many congrats!

    Re: New options for F430

    Wow! Very nice.
    Racing seats and CCM's. Yummmmmmmm~~~~~

    Re: New options for F430

    Thanks for the kind words.
