    Ferrari CS or 430?

    I'm thinking CS. Wider body, carbon fiber goodies, and better lines. The only downside is finding one with low miles and color/interior combo.

    Re: Ferrari CS or 430?

    CS for me every time

    Re: Ferrari CS or 430?


    Re: Ferrari CS or 430?

    i would go 430 all the way ,dont look back....

    Re: Ferrari CS or 430?

    I think the CS looks far better. I personally think Ferrari's had some design issues with their last couple models.

    Re: Ferrari CS or 430?

    430 is a fantastic choice.

    In pratice it's not as easy as picking one over the other.
    Even harder to find a 430 at msrp then a used CS w/low milaege & color combo.
    If you don't already have a relationship where you can buy a new 430 now at msrp I would buy a CS from a dealer so that you can get your name down for one.

    What color combo are you interested in ?

    In terms of a Theoretical decision of one over the other - You can't go wrong either way. All depends on what gets your heart pumping harder.

    Good advice! I am intimately familiar with both cars and while they both give you the "rush" from a performance standpoint, the 430 is much more civilized in driving performance, comfort and fun factor. The CS is a street legal race car and you immediately know it once you drive it.

    Re: Ferrari CS or 430?

    I would get F430 with manual 6spd, since this is not available with CS...

    Re: Ferrari CS or 430?

    good call Grant, but how hard is it to find one...

    I've seen two of them so far (and I've only seen about 6 F430's total).

    finding a 430 with manual gearbox is much easier than you think ,at least in europe. i have been offered one in germany 2 months ago for 3% under msrp. the problem starts when you look for f1

    Hi Roger. I nicked pic from Fchat

    Re: Ferrari CS or 430?

    I own a CS. The other day drove my friend's 430 and he drove my CS. I love my CS. Things that I love about the CS: design, noise and steering. For 430: e-diff (it makes a big different). In all, if you want an every day car, then go for the 430. The auto mode works! For little more excitment go for the CS.

    Re: Ferrari CS or 430?

    man good thing I don't have to make that decision

    Both cars are gorgeous! Sound amazing! Best of luck you'll be happy with either

    I personally one day will own both

    Having owned both, I'm with Scud.

    You can argue aesthetics all day long, as is the case with any subjective matter. But for me, the 430 has many of the lines I like from the 360 with a more aggressive look. You just need to view them both in the flesh -- photos don't do the 430 justice.;)

    Did I say it's a fantastic drive...significantly improved over the 360 in many ways. In the last analysis, you can't go wrong with either one.




    Re: Ferrari CS or 430?

    You gotta go with the Challenge and a 6 speed if you can find one. It'll be much rarer than the 430 F1's that everyone else gets and surely Nick would agree and tell you that rarity and investment value are, by far, the primary considerations when buying a sports car.

    As a CS with 6-speed would have a transmission change done by a someone else than Ferrari I doubt the investment value of it, but surely a rare car

    I know you can get a manaual transmission changover done on MB models, but has anyone done it on the CS

    WHY should they

    "You see things and say "Why?", but I dream things that never were; and I say "Why not?" " George Bernard Shaw

    it wouldn't surprise me if someone with enough funds has wanted a manual 360 CS, but I haven't heard of anyone who atually went ahead with the conversion..

    No need for a discussion about what transmision is best, sufficent to say that some people still prefer manual transmissions.. And then; why not

    With enough money you could probAbly (is that one OK Fritz?) get Ferrari to make a manual 360 CS for you as well

    You could be right with this...

    Re: Ferrari CS or 430?

    CS all the way...

    Re: Ferrari CS or 430?

    Here is my order

    1. F430 Spider
    2. 360 CS
    3. F430 Hardtop

    They should have made the F430 stance wider and lower. Both car have great lines but the wider stance of the 360 CS got me. Notice the 360 rear end flares out while the f430 rear is brought inward.

    Color Combo for CS - Yellow with black leather seats and black alacantra dash. Yellow calipers and carbon brake pads. Or all black alacantra interior is fine. The red and black alacantra looks faded in most of the pictures I've seen, is it bad photography or is the red kind of dull?

    Re: Ferrari CS or 430?

    If you think the red in the red/black alcantera pics is dull, you're looking at bad pictures. The seats are gorgeous.

    Re: Ferrari CS or 430?

    I have a 997 gt3 now and really love it, but I have a place in my mind/garage for a 360 cs (6 speed) - so for me I would go cs all the way.

    There is no such thing as a Challenge Stradale 6-speed.

    Re: Ferrari CS or 430?

    If you're interested in the CS or the F430, check out this dealership near my home

    Formula 1

    Personally, I would go for the F430, eventhough the CS is one the most beautiful Ferraris I've seen in a while. Good luck!
