    Hi there,
    I saw a CS thread on here but nothing on the 16m. Anyone here own one? I had a 430 spider in the past and am thinking or getting a 16m. Can you place a picture of your car here? Wondering if it is worth the increase in cost vs a 430 spider.

    Love the 16m in white. Looks like Eddie's old 16m

    I don't know what the difference is 'worth', but it's my #1 choice over any other car if I had a budget to support it

    And I'd convert it to a 6 spd

    So spider68, In your opinion is the 16m not worth the premium over a regular 430 spider

    I love my 430 spider and have imagined trading it for a 16m, I’m concerned that most of the sharpness of the Scuderia will be lost with the comprised spider platform. I ultimately decided to keep the 430 and add a 675LT spider(also only 500 produced) totally different experience and between the 2 cars I have the best of both worlds.

    I totally enjoy my 16M since 2011 when I purchased it. Haven't found anything to replace the sound and driving qualities of that car

    Hi Dohangs the price difference is more than justified and worth it. IMHO. Additionally u get a limited car beside the Scud specification.

    Ive got to say I haven’t noticed any of the sharpness of the Scud being lost in the 16m. They seem every bit as capable as the coupe version, although I haven’t had mine on a track to compare at their limits. In addition the sound with the top down is absolutely unmatched. If you’re one looking for the visceral connection to a car and driving experience, the 16m provides that in a way few other cars do, and no offense to 430 owners but the 16m is simply hands down a better car in every way.

    The loudest road car I have ever owned or driven by far.
    When those red leds light up the 16M just screams

    That would be great, but it’s hard to imagine with the loss of the structure support of the roof gone and another 150 pounds

    @JAM1 - I would imagine that is exactly what Ferrari had in mind when they designed and built it

    'the 16m is simply hands down a better car in every way.'

    As to spider vs coupe, why compare?

    2 different driving experiences, both great, some like one, some the other

    All enjoy
