    from body kits to to the exhaust system, if your 458 has been changed, please share yours. I’m trying to get ideas for my 458 coupe.

    Whatever you do, please don't get a Liberty Walk kit!

    Now that that's out of the way, I think Novitec exhausts sound insane. Not sure if I would pay that much money though.

    Hahaha as much as my younger self would love to do a liberty walk kit, I’d rather just admire others. As for the exhaust I’ve heard the novitecs and they do slind great. But for me also I couldn’t see that much money into an exhaust system. I’ll stick with my sport exhaust and remote valve system:)

    Holy carbon, I’m personally waiting to hear back from a local carbon dealer on pricing. But wow I’ll be in touch with you if he doesn’t get back!

    Also I’m thinking of doing possibly colored carbon fiber parts, for the exterior only while keeping the inside the stock carbon fiber. Any recommendations . Tomorrow when the suns out I’ll take pics of my 458. So you guys could put your thoughts into it.

    Hi Its Joe at Fabspeed Motorsport USA
    In 2009 we had the Worlds very 1st Ferrari 458 in for design, development and engineering. The Fabspeed engineering team designed long tube compaetion 458 headers with Formula 1/ Indycar style high velocity Merge collectors and then we made 458 catbypass pipes and HJS German imported 200 cell highflow racings bolt-on catalytic converters. Later we designed 458 Chal;lenge dual outlet tips and minim maxflo rear Fabspeed mufflers to save weight.

    On the F458 my personal choice for maximum power across the RPM range is a set of long tube competition race headers along with high flow HJS German imported 200 cell tri-metallic catalytic converters. When the 458 Belinetta came out I called Klaus at HJS and procured the largest HJS catalytic converters that would fit the 458 chassis. No other company was doing this 9 years ago. These extra large Emitec German tri-metallic catalytic converters flow the equivalent of 93% to 95% of a straight PIPE or 93% to 95% NO CAT and therefore perform and work better that no catalytic converter in both qualitative and quantifiable documentation. Bottom-line- much more torque low and mid range and still the Scream to Red-Line and typically no Check Engine Light no-cell.

    Fabspeed Motorsport typically has a modified 458 on the shop floor or can get a car in for any of you guys and gals want to see and drive it to sample the experience. You are all cordially invited into check out our 25,000sqft engineering, design and manufacturing facility. Check out our website for detailed explanation Videos should 458 cars in multiple combinations of exhaust. Ask for Travis or Joe Fab.

    Does anyone know where people are buying their tire stickers that are colored, I've seen a few but never found it online?
