    This car arrived at the local dealership recently. The optional chrome grill looks great, not sure if I like the new badge on the back. The rear end doesn't look as clean.

    Don't think I like that badge. Can't see the chrome grill that well. Do you you have any more pictures?

    Here is the TDF blue Stradale from Car & Driver making its rounds to the Detroit area magazines. Stunning car.

    The badge looks silly at best. The exhaust needs some work there too. :D

    How is the TdF on the Stradale in person?

    definitely not too keen on the rear badge or the chrome grill. the badge looks silly and makes the rear look unbalanced. imho of course...

    Bob,

    It was already dark and the lighting was poor, most of my pictures didn't come out well. When I get better shots of the chromed grill and back end, in the next couple of days, I will post them. The chrome stands out a lot more in person and looks nice with black.


    Dan,

    The TDF blue looks incredible in person, even with the Naturale leather interior. I preferred it over the Rosso Scuderia Stradale they had parked nearby.

    Phooey on the 575M on the rear. This is not a Honda or MB.

    The TDF/Naturale Stradale is awesome!

    The 575 is kind of messed up :( - how does one manage to screw up perfection?

    This is more a case of bad lighting then anything else.....take that picture in day light and you'll see a big difference.

    2004? I thought Ferrari was about the only manufacturer that was aligned with the calendar...didn't make any 2004 cars 'til Jan '04. At least that's what I've been told about the 360.

    Simply use a piece of dental floss to take the sign off the back. Agree does not look as clean. CAVALLINO is enough no more advertisement. Agree, it is not a Honda or Lexus

    Mark,

    What Bart was referring is the "575M" sign which should not be there. See Enzo's back, nothing but the cavallino

    I believe the '04 575M was released early in order to spark sales. You can walk into many Ferrari dealerships today and take your pick. Definitely not the same situation for the 360.



    BTW, the black/naturale color combo on this car looked magnificent. Very classy and perfectly suited to the image of the car.

    Look at the 328 register thread. A lot of cars that were build in 1985 are 1986 cars

    Use GooGone (the orange citrus stuff) - NOT GOOF OFF, afterwards to clean off the sticky double-sided tape residue.

    i just finished that article about in Car and Driver about the CS and the competition. the car looks great.

    but what about those old F1 cars that Ferrari is selling for people to race? not in competition, but for their own pleasure. it said they were selling the cars for over $1mil apiece but it included custom molding around you and driving lessons. along with parts and service for as long as you own it. the F2002 goes on sale this summer, i wonder how much they'll sell that thing for....
