    Per your request Stradale, here is my 430 config:
    - mugello red exterior;
    - nero interior;
    - F1 coupe;
    - Carbon Ceramic brakes;
    - fender shields;
    - rosso corsa red calipers;
    - yellow tachometer;
    - grigio scuro stiching (grey);
    - black leathered roof (thanks Rossi for the advice);
    - Tire pressure monitor (still not likeing the idea but let's try the sucker);
    - pirelli tires, no runflats;
    - 3M clear bra;
    - "plancia centrale" in carbon fibre (the trimming surounding the airvents, both sides and central console).

    Here are the codes: CCMD, LOGO, CALR, RUF1, STC1, TPM0.




    Carbon Ceramics, shields most imporatant imo, I have both on my 430 too. Also have the CF center & CF inner & outer sills. Also have the CF steering wheel, this was the last option I added to my spec.'s and so happy I did, it's really a piece of art & absolutely love how it feels.

    The tire pressure monitor is a very good idea, I use it in my car all the time. Gone are the days when you could easily tell right away if you were very low on air. It's more than just a convenience, it's an excellent safety device imo. I have the pirelli's too, you want the best performing tire you can get imo, getting runflats trying to prepare for something that may never happen (a flat) at the expense of better ride & handling (which you'll use 100% of the time) doesnt make sense to me, especially in such a high performance sports car.

    The only part that doesnt look right to me is the "mugello red" paint w/ rosso corsa calipers?? With any of the Red's the calipers should match the body of the car, unless you get red exterior w/ black or silver calipers... Two different shades of red (calipers & exterior body) doesnt look right at all. If you cant get mugello red calipers I'd get Black calipers. If it were me I'd get a Rosso Corsa Car w/ Rosso Corsa Calipers.

    Re: 4Car: Ferrari 430 Scuderia Review

    Doesn't matter man, I will switch it for Scuderia pretty fast. Look at the car as my entry ticket in the "club".
    The calipers will get dirty anyway

    On Scuderia I have a big dilemma: stripes or no stripes?

    I think people need to keep the Scud in perspective. It may be faster than the Enzo around the Ferrari track but highly unlikely it would beat it on any other venue. Additionally, I suspect the Scud will not break 7.40 at the Ring.

    Finally, in my opinion the car is over priced and totally useless for street driving. I frequently drove the 360 Stradale and after awhile behind the wheel, I would have a headache because of its rawness.

    Just not my type of car.






    You're getting too old Nick. The difference in the CS vs the 430 is not that big at all especially since the 430's exhaust is much louder than the Modena. I never had a problem driving my CS all day and still ready for more. And now find my 430 very similair to my CS.

    The differences CS vs 430 in terms of comfort/everyday use are very small, matter of fact you couldn't find 2 cars that are more alike.



    It doesn't matter to Nick. The thing that matters to Nick is the Scuderia is better than his precious F430. Therefore he will criticize it, just like he criticizes every other car that's better than his, whether real or perceived, by sports car fans. Just read this forum, the Sports Car forum, the Porsche forums. He does nothing but criticize cars that are better than his "child" (F430), and leaves lessor sports cars alone. BTW, I agree with you, Nick is getting too old (senile, early dementia?).

    David



    Do me a favor - Don't agree w/ me okay? My comment was made in a funning with Nick way (I hope it sounded that way, anyway), the way friends talk with one another.. Also think your comments in your next message are un-called for , nobody acts like that to others here.



    Who are you to tell me I can't agree with you? Do me a favor, don't respond to my posts.

    David



    Do us all a favour and keep away from the F-board.



    This is funny to me. I can understand if you said don't post personal attacks (which I don't think I have done), but can you please explain why I shouldn't post on the Ferrari board? Is the F-board only for Ferrari owners?

    Out of the same reasons why you told somebody not to respond on your posts.

    BTW, using words like "senile" and "early dementia" in direct reference to another (long-serving) rennteam member is something that I would very well call a personal attack.

    Agree. That is why the press pictures of the Red Mugello car features black calipers.

    I didn't get stripes on my CS but later wish I had & IMO the stripes on the Scud are nicer than the stripe on the CS, I'd definitely get them.

    Re: 4Car: Ferrari 430 Scuderia Review

    I am with Stradale, I too would get them.

    Re: 4Car: Ferrari 430 Scuderia Review

    Anybody else? Anybody from Europe?

    It's only an attack if it's not true. I told people my dad was senile before he passed away (bless his soul). That wasn't an attack. It was the truth. Based on Nick's famous picture of him posing next to his F360, I would put his current age at late 60s or early 70s. Also considering his incoherent/illogical arguments, saying one thing in a thread on the Porsche board then saying the opposite on the F-board, repeating himself over and over; these are all signs of senility. It seems to me there's more proof Nick is senile, or getting close...than not.

    David

    Re: 4Car: Ferrari 430 Scuderia Review

    Guys,

    Please stay away from personal attacks and name calling.

    Much Appreciate it.
