    I do have it and when I checked them the tires were running in the low 40's. I believe cold they should be set in the mid 30's. BTW I do not agree with Ben's view regarding the handling. Ben is accustomed to a totally different type of car.

    Fanch that is me.



    I don't agree with Ben's vieuw either, and 'accustomed' to different type of car' has NOTHING to do with it !!



    Patriek I have been doing some checking and I believe the reason Ben had that sense was because of the dampening affect of the Shyhook system. It is not to say something is wrong or inferior.

    One thing I know is if I was going into battle, I would want you on my side.

    exactly. it's just not involving or communicative, but that trade off provides for an amazingly smooth and comfortably ride and drive. i'm anxious to see what it's like with CST off.

    i think we all remember the exchange wherein someone called your driving ability and experience into question and you ridiculously brought up go kart racing days as kids against schumy back before schumy could drive. his competitive achievements vs. yours are telling. it was just highly ironic you'd be using my driving experience to debunk an opinion i had while driving the new Ferrari SL430. get it now? if not, i can't take it any slower for you. maybe your difficulty in understanding is owing to my failure to use your funny wittle pictures like

    speaking of irony, do you happen to remember your negative first driving experience in the Ferrari SL430 you posted here? (i do)

    Re: Initial impressions of the 430

    Nick,
    Waiting on some more pics please!

    I can see you're not too thrilled with the F430, but it can't be that bad to call it an "SL430" ;-)

    And CONGRATS on the new F430! Absolutely stunning! I love it so much, I think I'll let you have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to trade your car with my stunning Fiat 126p

    Re: Initial impressions of the 430

    Ben , my driver skills are made out of RACING (YES RACING )!!and I'm driving F cars since I own my drivers lisence....(18 here in Belgium)

    So please tell me WHAT ARE YOURS ????? before taking mine into question !!

    but the SL430 (at least I have one) is growing on me, and it sure not as bad as your stupied comments trying to tell us.

    you really think you are 'sonmething' doesn't you, but remember, you're just NOTHING TO ME !!! please keep that in mind
    YOUR COMMENTS ARE RIDICULUS, even funny in a way ....
    and the use of the is just to come to your level, .... and maybe because I don't write as good english,as I would, because t isn't my language ...

    Re: Initial impressions of the 430

    Patriek why do you have to be so rude? So what if someone doesnt share the same enthusiasm or obsession as you?

    Making comments like "at least I have one" are just silly and pointless.

    I would assume Ben is comparing the F430 to his departed 360CS....yes?

    Actually Rayn, both of them have been equally rude, so, let's not take sides. As to saying: "at least I have one"... what's wrong with that? He does and, therefore, has more extensive drive time with the F430. Ben had a very limited experience with Nick's car and his comments reflect that. Patriek needs to take it with a grain of salt and not so personally. But again, both were equally rude. And it doesn't matter who started it, but, who's willing to take the high road from here on...

    1) As to saying: "at least I have one"... what's wrong with that? He does and, therefore, has more extensive drive time with the F430.

    2) Ben had a very limited experience with Nick's car and his comments reflect that. Patriek needs to take it with a grain of salt and not so personally.

    3) But again, both were equally rude.



    1) Thats not how it came off...it sounded like he was trying to put it in his face.

    2) Exactly, Patriek doesnt need to take it so personally.

    3) I disagree

    Ben's remarks:

    1) "but these are my driving impressions of the car. if you don't like, tough %hit."

    2) "poor Patriek goes off on the deep end of defensive based personal attacks because someone (with direct experience) doesn't share his opinions about his wittle car to which his fragile ego is so closely tied. get help and/or grow up wittle guy.

    Patriek's remarks: "Ben, your driving (impressions and) skills are based on what ?? driving like a sissy and poseur over the american high ways."

    Like I said, equally rude. Check the facts!

    Re: Initial impressions of the 430

    you're right, even though ALL my comments were in RESPONSE to patriek's (beginning with his tantrum in the first post of mine which obviously was not directed or addressed to him), it's no excuse. so, i'm going "to take the high road" and just ignore the wittle man.

    Re: Initial impressions of the 430

    Nick:

    I am really happy for you because it is obvious you LOVE that car. . . and with good reason, it sounds! Thanks for your very well stated initial impressions of the 430. It seems to me many others' first impressions are similar to yours, and that continues to build a good rep for the car. I hope you continue to refine your driving impressions with us, especially regarding some of that lightness at speed stuff which Mr Z has mentioned too.
    YOU are indeed very fortunate.

    Re: Initial impressions of the 430

    ben keep sinking the boot in my friend. love your work.
    rock on

    Re: Initial impressions of the 430

    this is a really funny thread, calm down guys... you are acting like children.

    Re: Initial impressions of the 430

    Looks and sounds terrific, Nick. I envy your early delivery.
