    Sorry for the stupid question guys, but I've searched and googled with no luck. I bought a new 458 (to me) and taking it to the california DMV we can't find the emissions sticker anywhere. does anyone know the location? thanks! - eric

    It is located on the left side of the engine compartment facing up. It is hard to miss, if it is still on the vehicle. See the attached photo. I suspect yours is missing. When we purchased our 2015 458 Spider 1/2 of my decal was torn off. My dealer obtained a replacement.

    Replaced my half torn one after I bought it. The new one came off also in a couple of years . When I ordered a new one the dealer said it was the cheapest Ferrari part you will ever buy! I think it was like $18.00.

    At the risk of sounding incredibly stupid, what is the emission sticker used for? I've been back in California for 18 years, I've purchased / registered / done emissions on many cars, I have a 2014 458 Spider, but had never heard of this sticker until today. I checked and it is definitely where it is supposed to be.

    Thanks,

    Rob

    Only comes into play when you bring a car in from out of state. California wants to make sure it's a 50 state legal car and that confirms it.
