    430 - Carbon or Alum?

    Opinions, please: black upper dash, cuio (sp?) lower dash, seats, headliner & shelf - torn between carbon and alum. Do those who have carbon love it? The cars I've seen have had brushed alum. Thanks.

    Re: 430 - Carbon or Alum?

    aluminum, why get carbon when the car isnt made out of it!!! aluminum shows the cars innovation, not a fake of what the car is NOT!

    Re: 430 - Carbon or Alum?

    I prefer aluminum.

    Re: 430 - Carbon or Alum?

    In my opinion it depends on the interior color & car color as well as of the car configuration. I think I would take carbon on a extremly sporty looking car (CS rims, etc.).

    Re: 430 - Carbon or Alum?

    430 is a small Enzo Ferrari.. (or wants to be...)
    So By all means CARBON! I dont like aluminium at all.

    P.s but dont put red speedo (like enzo) ONLY YELLOW

    Re: 430 - Carbon or Alum?

    Aluminum (shows the car's nature), but get carbon for the engine bay.

    carbon, why get aluminium when the aluminum does look like plastic with metallic paint finish?

    Wrong. Rev counter of the Enzo is in body colour, so it's only yellow if you get an Enzo in giallo modena.

    Re: 430 - Carbon or Alum?

    With a black interior, only aluminium. As most of the others said, alu fits also better to the car's nature (alloy space frame). Carbon looks somehow out of place to me, also depends on the interior colour. With your combination, you could choose carbon as well. But as there are more aluminium or steel parts (paddles, rev counter ring, air vents, F1-plate) even if you order carbon, alu still looks better to me. With carbon you get too much material mix IMO (perhaps it gets better if you order the carbon interior package with centre console, dashboard and paddles in carbon).
    Just my 2c.

    Re: 430 - Carbon or Alum?

    Rossi, does a blue or white Enzo have a blue and white rev counter? I thought it's either red or yellow.

    Re: 430 - Carbon or Alum?

    I subscribe to what Rossi said above for the same reasons.

    Re: 430 - Carbon or Alum?

    Hmmm, I thought about that too. Actually - I don't know!
    (but I don't think so...)

    Re: 430 - Carbon or Alum?

    the counter are only red, yellow or black tjere isn't others colors

    Thanks. So it's red with rosso corsa/scuderia, yellow with giallo modena and black with the rest?

    As far as I know, it is aluminum. Certainly all the Ferrari literature says it is, but I don't really know for sure.

    Re: 430 - Carbon or Alum?

    I think it's aluminium, but it's coated and so feels a little bit like plastic. But if you compare it to the silver parts in the 997 interior for example, you notice the difference.

    NO WAY Rossi, the one of my friend is RED with YELLOW rev counter

    Hmm, obviosly you are right!

    Well, I thought I've read when Ferrari introduced the Enzo that they match the rev counter colour with the exterior colour. So either they've changed that (a la F430 - and 612 if I'm right) or the car magazine was misinformed from the beginning.

    Anyway, not that important to argue about, eh? I'd choose yellow anytime... (or plain black).

    Re: 430 - Carbon or Alum?

    yes you can choose between these 3 colors
    red yellow or black .
    Its the same for the F430

    So, what is the difference? Are the 997 parts aluminum rather than coated?

    Re: 430 - Carbon or Alum?

    Wow, three pages of replies.

    I agree with Rossi's analysis, and chose the aluminum. Thank you to all who replied.

    Re: 430 - Carbon or Alum?

    I think Alum. looks better but I am concerned it will reflect back off the windshield, even light color stitching on the dash is a distraction. Life is full of compromises I guess.

    Re: 430 - Carbon or Alum?

    Aluminum is bead blasted giving it a non reflective matte finish.

    Yeah, heard about that too. Black seems to be a new option for the F430, there wasn't a word in the brochure or the Ferrari homepage...

    Re: 430 - Carbon or Alum?

    Carbon or Alum
    What a difficult choice ,anyway i went for carbon even if i have black interior cause it looks similar to the Enzo ,and i've always loved it
    Then there are also little parts of alum....
