    Need to bridge a small vertical gap to access my garage parking spot, new car inbound next week :)

    Will build a couple of wooden ramps temporarily for the purpose.

    Can someone please measure their 458 and share the distance between the front tire contact patch (center of wheel) to the most forward point of the lower front splitter?

    Thanks!

    From the center line of the wheel to the tip of the front of the bumper. I measured again just to double-check and confirm it is just less than 42". So call it 41" but for what Matt is trying to do that should be close enough.

    You are absolutely correct. The car is 47 inches tall and I just didn’t believe it. But you are right!
