    My new F430 Spider

    Ok. As i have seen too many new 997tt cars in the Porsche Forum i will post some of my cars pictures too...
    My car now has 1000kms though but these pictures are from the factory, when i received it before 1 week.

    I will post much better pictures than these.. but my car is dirty now.. I have to admit that the car is from a different planet.. and i dont care about the appearance but the SOUND is excelent the steering wheel is perfect and it is really fast! if 997 gt2 wont be PDK i am thinking of buying the F430 stradale too.

    Re: My new F430 Spider

    I dont know why some pictures are big and some others are small. I am sorry about that...
    If someone can fix it, it is ok by me...

    Re: My new F430 Spider

    Congrats, what a beautiful car

    Re: My new F430 Spider

    Congrats. Perfect color combo. My coupe's got the red stiching with tan. Stiching really spices it up.

    I agree. The car with the interior looks magnificent.

    How does she drive?

    incredible car

    Re: My new F430 Spider

    Congrats! you're going to love driving it Really nice interior, same as my spider as well

    Re: My new F430 Spider

    First of all thank you all for your kind words...

    The car is Rosso Scuderia with black and red stiching as you can see.

    I like it so much and I have to admit that I wasnt big fan of Ferrari cars.. I was a Porsche Fan..
    When I drove this car I got so impressed!
    The handling of the car is perfect the brakes too and most of all the steering wheel reminded me of driving a kart!
    In Porsche cars you have to play with the nose of the car in order to drive it fast.. In F430 the car is SO WELL balanced! I drive the car in RACE mode..

    Something more as i have driven and a modena in the past, the car handling is totally different. F430's E-Diff which as i know can be from 30% to 100% if it has to, is the secret for the handling.

    Finaly, the F1 system is the next generation system and now that i own a car with F1 has to say that this is the future in transmission. It is sad that Porsche doesnt offer such a gearbox yet.
    I dont have to say something for the sound, you all know about this...
    The only bad thing is that i cant leave this car yet, unattended.

    Re: My new F430 Spider

    great!! thanks for the pictures!

    Re: My new F430 Spider

    Lovely car Nick. The stitching looks nice & thick. Is is the Special Stitching STC2 or the regular STC1?

    Re: My new F430 Spider

    Wow, beautiful car
    Enjoy...

    Thanks Nick - Fantastic. There you go everyone, when specing make sure you choose STC2, so much nicer that little bit thicker.

    I'm not sold on the thicker stitch. To my eyes the standard stitch looks better. W/ the thicker stitching the stitch looks more like one connected line. The standard stitch looks more like a stitch. Usually I'm all for the added options, usually they add to the looks but in this case just imho of course the STC1 has a nicer look to it. It's not that I think the thicker stitch doesn't also look great, it does, just that my eyes prefer the standard stitch's weave.


    One hell uv a nice car Nick. Great color combo choices & w/ the CCM's etc. Really enjoy it. Would love to see more pics when you get a chance & hear about your impressions of the car. CONGRATULATIONS !

    Re: My new F430 Spider

    Don't have a pic w/ color stitch but like w/ this car the standard stitching has more of an in and out weave to it. Hard to explain what I mean.

    Re: My new F430 Spider

    Thanks for the pictures Nick, you have made my day!
    Cheers

    Re: My new F430 Spider

    Absolutely georgeous, brother
    Be safe.

    Re: My new F430 Spider

    Not a big fan of the red stiching but other than that, the car is BEAUTIFUL!!!!

    Re: My new F430 Spider

    Wow as soon as I hit the lottery.....

    Re: My new F430 Spider

    Beautiful.
