    430 Challenge grill-

    Pounds1.5k option Even if it's CF the price is crazy. Anyone here have one ?

    Re: 430 Challenge grill-

    Well, I know my car due to arrive soon will be having it.
    Despite the controvesy over the looks, its certainly is growing on me and I know that i will not regret the option. After a while, I find the original stock bumper sports the bulkier and bloatier impression...simply the same feeling viewed between the challenge grill option for the 360.

    Me neither, doesn't flow in with the lines of the car.

    Patience....only time will tell.

    Re: 430 Challenge grill-

    I like it. It makes the car look wider and thiner.

    Thanks for sharing

    Re: 430 Challenge grill-

    it's not growing on my either,
    like Mike says, it just doesn't flow with the lines of the car's beautifull rear,

    Same here. Don't like it, I think it doesn't fit to the 430 rear end at all. Maybe at a black car, where you don't notice it.

    What does flow is what they currently have.

    Re: 430 Challenge grill-

    Nope. Me neither.

    Re: 430 Challenge grill-

    Really kinda wierd looking.

    Re: 430 Challenge grill-

    to me it's not perfect but looks better than the standard!
    if it looks better enough to justify the price is a different matter thought!!!

    Re: 430 Challenge grill-

    It just doesn't work right. It's supposed to add sportiness... to me it just looks like an aftermarket tack on thing that costs 200 bucks.

    The old challenge grill looked sporty and complimented the car--- this one is too complicated to even look attractive. It's only wire / a mesh... it shouldn't have all of those crimps and crap in it just to do anything.

    If they had made it like the old Challenge grill, costs would have been much lower, but of course they had to take CF now, just to rip off their customers...

    Re: 430 Challenge grill-

    Challenge grill? What is it good for? Absolutely nothing! Say it again!
    Now, it can look good only on Nero F430, IMO. I saw it few days ago on Giallo car and ask fellow Ferrarist why? You know what he said? "It was my dealers recommendation because it is lighter then standard one and it look sporty!"
    BTW, this guy is playboy kind of person(you know what I mean, Gold chains, hairy chest, my wife said "FUI" to me!) so... For me Challenge grill is a big NO, NO on F430. It simply destroys rear lines, IMO.

    Very well said.

    But come on Kreso, you drive the same car as this guy, don't you tell me you are not a look-alike!

    Re: 430 Challenge grill-

    Stefan, if we include you as well we will have triplets!

    Sportive elegance! That is my favorite style... But, stuff from Armani, Boss and Brioni is mostly in my closet. With some invaders from Ralph Lauren.
    This guy was wearing white pants, red shirt, red shoes(!!) and two gold chains(around his neck and hand) with "fly" style sunglasses... BTW, there was a big Moschino on the back of his shirt...
    Really style to die for.

    Yeah Kreso, we will make a handsome threesome!

    But the style of this guy is up to date: remember the new Miami Vice movie in the cinemas? Eighthies are coming back again!

    Well, and Kreso's closet is the proof! Armani, Boss and RL are quite 80's as well


    Re: 430 Challenge grill-

    zzboba....rl is the best...

    Re: 430 Challenge grill-

    I think it looks pretty cool, I wish it would be without the bar in the center, but I don't see why everyone is against it, not everyone can like everything, and for the price, you have to take in consideration that they use a new rear bumper for such equipped cars.

    Re: 430 Challenge grill-

    The car finally arrived.
    Despite the mixed responses, I felt that the car with the Carbon fiber grille option actually looks better IMO as we had envisioned ; it optimistically accentuates a lower, wider and leaner impersonation just like the F430 Challenge car.
    I bought according to what I like ...and I LOVE it.

    Congratulations Avantgarde!

    Now that I can see the car in person, I have to admit that the shiny look of the CF Challenge grill does look good at the F430's rear.
    The shiny look fits well to the red paint, better to have it this way than if they had used the relatively dull look of the old Challenge mesh grill.

    Enjoy! Great pic BTW!

    Re: 430 Challenge grill-

    I like it very much !

    Re: 430 Challenge grill-

    congrats avant garde!! enjoy it !

    Re: 430 Challenge grill-

    VERY NICE picture of A GREAT Car !!
    Congrats & Enjoy

    Re: 430 Challenge grill-

    Congrats & Enjoy!

    I see you have fitted Tubi pipes onto you car. Would you PLEASE post a video sometime?! I can't seem to find any videos of F430's with aftermarket exhaust systems! Much appreciated!

    Re: 430 Challenge grill-

    It's solid beneath the lights, but has a mesh in the middle.
