    My 458 has arrived!

    Just delivered 30 minutes ago and dealer sent me pics as soon as it came off the truck. All being well I'll collect it on Saturday Smiley It is pretty well covered up for the journey to the dealer.

     Congrats Iain! You must be absolutely thrilled! 

    PS: I love the red inserts into the steering wheel; very racey indeed!

    Re: My 458 has arrived!

    It's going to be a l-o-n-g wait until Saturday   The pics make the seatbelts look a bit pink but they are a perfect match for the red leather inserts. I love the red thumbgrips though I'm sure they won't be to everyones taste. My dealer says he'll take more pics tomorrow when the transit protection film has been removed.

    I'm going to have fun driving it home on Saturday as the dealer is over 200 miles away from me so that'll be a nice little break in run


    Re: My 458 has arrived!

     very very nice!!!

    Good luck and good drive with your new baby!!


    Re: My 458 has arrived!

     Agree this pictures really make it look nice, your interior with the red stripe, red belts and the red thumb grips is very sporty !! Congrats Lain, you must be in cloud 9 right now Smiley  and post a lot of pics of the car once its back home.

    Re: My 458 has arrived!

     Iain, you have terrific taste. I love the steering wheel and seats

    Re: My 458 has arrived!

    love your sports seat [especially the red line in the middle] and carbon fiber inserts on the steering wheel.

    the screws on the base of the sports seat, are they for height adjustments?


    Re: My 458 has arrived!

    tony2006:

    the screws on the base of the sports seat, are they for height adjustments?

    They are indeed. 

    Three or four different height settings? Smiley

    Can't be sure from that phototgraph.

    Do they also allow for variation of seat squab tilt, e.g., by raising the front of the squab, but not the rear? Smiley

    Re: My 458 has arrived!

    The screws in the base are for height adjustment as fritz says. They are effectively the same seats as the Scud. The rear can lift I think (there is a long slotted single adjustment track visible).

    I had ordered the carbon fibre dash trim option but it's introduction was delayed when my car went into production. It would have looked great but it's saved me a small fortune by not having it so I'm not too concerned


    Re: My 458 has arrived!

    Iain,

    Your 458 is GORGEOUS

    Enjoy it in good health. You'll have a great drive on Saturday

    I'm also curious about your view on 458 vs. Scud.

    Please keep us posted.

    BTW, your interior looks fantastic, I loved the race seats, just fantastic

     That explains it. Smiley

    I couldn't be sure about the rear "holes" being a slot when looking at my monitor. 

    So the holes in front will define the height of the front of the seat squab, and the slots at the rear will provide some leeway for adjusting height and rake angle.

    Re: My 458 has arrived!

    The rear "slot" may be slightly clearer in this pic.

    Re: My 458 has arrived!

    OMG.

    Congratulations.  Cannot wait to see it with its protective covering off. Same thing I've been saying since I got married to the wife actually, but it's still on.

    Re: My 458 has arrived!

     +1 with the seat slot. Nice touch. The wheel inserts are great as well - as you said, not to everyone's taste, but I think they compliment the racey character of the car. Nicely done, and enjoy!


    Re: My 458 has arrived!

    OMG what a machine, great specced 458!! cannot wait for the pics in the wild, i won't say enjoy because i know you will...

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: My 458 has arrived!

    Congratulations on a very nicely spec car  Now we will wait for your long terme driving report as you can compare it to your previous sports car
