    Good luck bruddah. My friend is still waiting for his silver pista so you’re not alone. I got my 458 spider super fast. Hope you get yours soon.

    I don’t see it. I think both are great looking though in their own right.

    Agree - the black roof looks great. Demo car for F of Denver is exactly like your photo but with other rims........it should show up on their website in a few weeks if you want to see a live photo of it (guessing they will post it once it arrives). I saw the photo of it leaving the factory and it looked fantastic.

    Hey guys I’m kinda in a situation where I have a F8 come and I sold my custom ordered 2018 488 spider and now I miss it. I have not received delivery of my F8 Nero matte finish yet but I’m really missing the 488 to me it sounded good and my color combo was amazing what do you guys think.

    I think your 488 looks great. And like you, I ordered a F8 as well, but I will keep my 488 until the F8 arrives.

    I love the 488, I don't think the F8 is drastically faster or better, but I wanted one. :)

    Mine is already in it’s getting wrapped in xpel stealth ppf which will give it a matte black look lowered on novitech springs with spacers will look killer with gloss black wheels I can’t wait but my 488 spec was amazing and looked amazing.

    Once you get your F8 you won’t miss your 488.

    Saw a bunch of Fcar (458s, 488s and F8S) in a long row at Celebration Exotics in Orlando yesterday. It was a great opportunity to really see the differences as most were stock, some lowered, and some with bigger tire combos (21/22s).

    IMO the ones with the larger wheel combos simply looked best. A close second is lowered a bit and with spacers. But I have no idea how these mods impact drivability and performance.

    CF wheel upgrades can be had for about $4k per rim. They really look awesome in person.

    Wheels and exhaust will be two necessary upgrades to the incoming F8 Spider.

    Man… When you see those two pictures side-by-side the Evo to me, looks so much more aggressive than the F8. I love it

    The F8 is superior on every objective and subjective metric. Not night and day but significant.

    First the F8 looks way more exotic than the 458 or 488. Second the F8 is considerably faster than the 458 and significantly faster than the 488. Third the interior updates on the F8 are also a big step up from both the 458 and the 488. Each generation is an improvement from the prior generation.
