    Easy to do if you can source a yellow tach. I have asked Ferrparts several times if they have any yellow faces but they don't seem to ever have any. *********** had a write up and that was where he got his yellow face

    Not sure why the word in my previous post got deleted, but it referred to another Ferrari chat page

    FYI, I may have found a place to source a F430 yellow Tach face. I will let everyone know if it works out

    Rod at FAI can do it for you, most likely.

    I would very much appreciate it. The only drawback is sourcing a genuine Ferrari yellow tach face. It would, IMHO, brighten up the instrument cluster. As of now I have a red one.

    Me Too! I have been searching in vain for this item. It cost me $260 but I want that yellow tach face. I am a relatively new Ferrari F430 owner (May 23rd) and although the car is exactly what I wanted (Rosso Corsa/Tan 2007 F1 w/only 5,272 miles and all service records, I wanted to personalize it. I installed StefVan's Basic Smart F1 ECU and when I get to the money I want his Rear Light Solution. I do not want to get rear-ended because this car stops like my Z06, which means like it caught a 3-wire, and people behind you are sometimes so mesmerized by the novelty of seeing a Ferrari they miss the fact that you threw out the anchor. They are rare even here in Orange County.

    So this was a big help in realizing my dream car. There is a thread somewhere on here from someone who did this replacement. It's very involved and non-trivial ut I think it will be worth the effort. I hope I can find that thread again! :)

    I bought an X-431 Torque from Launch Tech USA (Ontario, CA) to read and set my PIS if necessary and read my clutch life remaining. I managed to *buy* the car but I can not afford Ferrari of Newport Beach labor rates to repair it. I have two years left on the original 15-year power train warranty but after that, if it breaks I gotta fix it myself. So the diagnostic tool helps. I can bleed the F1 fluid using it, and a bunch of other things.

    Thanks again, sir.

    Ray

    That's the one! I bookmarked it this time. I was able to coax the steering column cover (bottom) only when I installed the Carbonio Scuderia Extended shift paddles. I have small hands and was unable to reach the paddles when turning. The rest is just to follow instructions. That's what got me through the Army and Vietnam.

    Thanks again. If there is any way I can repay you give me a shout out!
