    also there was a 550 barchetta

    Re: pics of first F430 in SA

    Hmm, I think STRADALE will be very interested in this pic showing the F430 racing buckets, because they have a red/black colour combo he was considering...

    hehehe the spider is going to set me back $500,000+

    yeah the red steering wheel isn't my cup of tea either, looks a bit gross IMO

    Not 450k but 420k

    Re: pics of first F430 in SA

    Mike S - what colour have you gone for on your spyder?

    Re: pics of first F430 in SA

    That interior is really nice, just a bit of red, absolutely gorgeous with the sport seats!

    Re: pics of first F430 in SA

    Hey Mike, just for comparison, how much does a decent family size house go for over in SA? What kind of property can you get for $500k? Just curious...

    property is getting expensive, but in comparison with the rest of the world it's still nothing.

    this house is just under 500k USD 4bedroom etc.

    Re: pics of first F430 in SA

    Hey Mike, is it safe enough to buy Property in SA, as a foreigner I mean (investment wise), when you can not be there all the time ??

    Black bolsters w/ red leather seat back and bottom ?!?!? Holy !!
    The internet is amazing. That's exactly the combo I was thinking about.

    What do you guys think ?

    I would switch the colors on the steering wheel around so it's 3/4 black with the red on top. I was also thinking of putting the same red leather as the seats on the inside of the doors. If I could I would make the middle part of the inside of the doors (where the handle and lid are) in red so the doors would be black and red leather. Or would you only do the seats ?

    But honestly what are your thoughts on the black and red seats like in Mike's pic below ?

    It would be on a Rosso Corsa/ Corsa CCM car.

    ps: Thanks a lot Mike !!

    Re: pics of first F430 in SA

    hey stradale,

    i completely agree with switching the steering wheel colours around, would look way way better, kind of like the CS's steering wheel. the red steering looks gross like i said above IMO

    but i wouldn't agree with putting the red inserts onto the door panels, the car is already red and you don't wanna overkill on the colour. the way the seats + seatbelts are coloured in the pic below are perfect IMO

    ps. you're welcome

    Re: pics of first F430 in SA

    wow!! so these cars cost more than decent houses! over here you'll struggle to get a decent one bed flat for $500k... cars are relatively cheap!!

    Re: pics of first F430 in SA

    The blk/red carbon seats look awesome

    Re: pics of first F430 in SA

    Mike,

    the prices you mentioned have been in US dollar currency?

    The exhaust tips of that 430 look pretty used, it doesn't seem to be a brand new car!

    yes i said 500k USD. all my prices are in USD as it's universal. won't help me saying the house costs 3 million rands, no one would know how much that is.

    the f430 is brand new, the owner doesn't have space so he leaves it in the showroom and drives it on weekends. ferrari doesn't mind, as it's the only f430 in the country atm. it's a showroom car during the week

    Re: pics of first F430 in SA

    Is it legal to drive in the US with that type of harness ?

    Not technically. DOT requires seatbelts that give slack so you can turn in your seat for better visibility, etc. Most cops wouldn't know or care though...

    Thanks. Up until I saw those I didn't care for colored seat belts. Those look good though. So if I used the harness instead of belts I probably wouldn't get a ticket ? Would I look like a doofus though ?

    You probably won't get a ticket and if you do, it will probably just be a fine that doesn't apply when/if you add the regular seatbelts. Lots of folks with street/track cars keep the standard seatbelts and add harnesses. That way you use regular belt on the street and harness at the track. Harnesses are not very comfy on the street for long periods - you can't move to change the radio or heater easily without loosening the belts and then they're unsafe. I do think they're alot safer when used properly in case of a crash though!

    Re: pics of first F430 in SA

    Thanks for answering Grant. I'll probably buy them and see how it goes.

    Re: pics of first F430 in SA

    hey i'm only human i heard that there was F430's that arrived at Viglietti way before Rosso Sport, but i didn't have any confirmations so i just assumed it was a rumour unless proven. guess cleared that one up, the salesman gave me the wrong info then...
