    F430 Spider Production

    My Ferrari car nut friend was told recently by his dealer (Northeast US) that his F430 Spider is delayed until next spring (April-June timetable), so he plans to take delivery here in Rochester instead of in L.A. where his west coast business base is (his reaction: ). He was told by his dealer that production didn't "match allocation numbers." Question he had: Is this a common F problem? Or is there a problem with 430 Spider builds, per se? He was frustrated enough to almost cancel his order, but I suspect he'll wait until next spring. Anyone else with similar delays with their 430 Spider orders?

    Re: F430 Spider Production

    Same here, I have placed an order in October 2004 and was told by the dealership that by July I should have it. The dealer did not recieve its allocated quota hence I was pushed to November(this month) but I have now disassisted inorder to get it in Jan 2006 ] to have an 06 reg on the car.

    Spider production were delayed because they had problems with the top, software and the manettino. I was suppose to have a July 2005 built and was delayed until Nov. 2005. My car was completed on Nov. 15th. Hopefully it is on a plane as we speak.

    BTW it is a 2006 model.

    Re: F430 Spider Production

    Of course it is a 2006 model but will be registered in 05. Used to have another Maser that I picked up in October 02 but was 03 model when it came for resale everyone including dealers considered it as an 02.
