    Arnie was it you that ordered your (2011?) Italia with the red trim on the lower dash like a Challenge Stradale featured?

    Agree. Nice spec! I have front lift on my 2012 458 and have never used it. Am I the only one that thinks it is a waste of money? I did not add it on my F8.

    Agree. But I’m sure there are some that might need it for steep driveways. Thankfully I don’t need it.

    Unnecessary, added weight, and one more thing that could possibly break on the 458.

    Anyone know where I can get CF shields for F8 (for sides and front hood)? My dealership is still looking - as of last week they have not found them yet.

    Doesn’t Ferrari offer them as an option?

    Yes and No.............you have to order the regular shields when you spec the car ($1856).........just to have the dealership remove and replace with CF for another $1500 ...(no one should be surprised here)........but they can't get the part yet from Ferrari..........so I ordered without the shields and will have aftermarket ones put on when it arrives in March. Just hoping they are available by then. As for the hood - I was told that has to be aftermarket (Ferrari does not offer that in CF).

    Doesn’t Ferrari use different fenders depending on whether you order the enameled shields (indented fenders to receive shield) or not (no indent)? I’m not sure that a non-shield-ready fender would allow proper mounting of a factory shield?

    Here’s a pic of the CF shield on our former TM F12. You can see how it sits recessed into the fender.

    And here’s the non-indented fender on our TM 812 because the shield was painted.

    That’s what I was wondering. If you didn’t spec shields I don’t think they can be easily added. I hope I’m wrong.

    Shields are a big deal because the Ferrari racers had them. My first Fcar was an F355 F1 GTS. No shields. My next Fcar was a 355 F1 Spider with shields. My 458 Spider has shields. Pretty much a necessary option nowadays.

    Yes they do. My fenders will not have the indent. But they can still mount the shields (they grind off the studs on the back). There is a 812 and 488 in the showroom at my dealership done that way and they look great (my personal opinion they look better - no different that horse and Ferrari letters on rear of car). Why pay Ferrari $2000 just to have shields removed and thrown away (they will not install CF at the factory - no clue why they won’t do it there)

    Latter on I bet the carbon will be an option
    I had to pay for a carbon steering wheel to get the LEDs on my 488 and then pay again to remove the carbon and have the whole wheel leather
    Later on it became an option
    I’m sure it’s an option on the Pista
    Maybe they just haven’t added it on the F8

    Does anyone know, or can anyone tell me what this black sticker/decal is on the hood? It’s on the cars in the brochure and on the press cars, but for the life of me I don’t know what it’s for. I thought maybe the design team added it to make the cowl area look larger, but I don’t really know. Image Unavailable, Please Login

    It’s an option:

    BONNET UPPER INSERT BLACK MATT - COLL $1,226

    Not exactly sure what the purpose of it is, other than a different look. I think all the Pista’s have it

    My Pista has it. Didn’t even realize till my clear bra guy asked if I wanted it wrapped matt or gloss.

    Pista has full carbon hood
