Hey! I am considering buying my first F430 and am stuck between an earlier 06 model and a 08-09 model. I have read extensively about the frequent clutch replacement and it seems to be a common occurrence. I have also read that the 08-09 years was a bit better on the clutch wear. What kind of mileage have you gotten on your clutches? What things have taken you by surprise? What have you loved about the car? Looking for more personal experiences good or bad. Would you buy a F430 again after owning one? I am also considering a 12c or a 911 Turbo as well. I just do not care too much for the 911 in the looks department and the 12C is pitching itself to be a maintenance nightmare with a national shortage of parts.
