    Congratulations.

    We had a very spirited discussion about this in my thread...

    Is Oahu a terrible place to own a sports car?

    What has been your experience driving the 430 on the island? Fun or frustrating?

    It’s only been 3 weeks so I’m still in my honeymoon period of ownership. But so far pretty good. I drive it at least 25 miles a day and beside some silly fast and furious types it’s been good. I got stuck in h1 traffic last week, where I could feel my clutch life declining . But I’m just thrilled to be driving a Ferrari. When I’ve felt a driver is trying to race or hanging out of window with cell phone, I just pull onto the slow lane and simmer I purchased the car to drive, so I’ve been using it to it’s full. Dodging the potholes is a sport Unto itself my champagne problems include getting a headache when pushing 9,000 rpm in 2nd through the tunnel on h3. Quality

    If you haven't already, I suggest you take a look at joining the Hawaii FCA (Ferrari Club of America) chapter. Its a very active group with a lot of events and runs scheduled. It will give you the chance to get that 430 out. Several members are here on FChat.

    Thanks @yronZFF
    Right. Lived here for 7 years. But totally feels those potholes less in the Range.
    I’m getting pretty good at dodging them. But When I do hit one, it does send a shiver funny that pothole density totally plays a part In my route planning.

    Great to meet you today, Omar! I enjoyed the FCA Hawaii tech session, and hope you did, too.

    Now we need to get with Ron and submit our "Owner" applications to Ferrari Chat!

    Aloha, Bob

    Here are the rules, as I have last seen them (posted by the Mods):

    "Here's what is involved. You must be:

    1) A current Ferrari owner
    2) Confirmed as such by a moderator or by 3 users who have seen you and your car. Please send 5-6 confirming users if possible (in order to obtain 3 replies in a timely fashion) or the name of a moderator who knows you and your car. (Send me their USER ID's, please, I don't know every member by name. )
    3) Silver or Rossa Subscribed.
    4. Willing to post a picture of yourself and your car in the Garage thread along with the serial # and model details of your car.


    And benefits and conditions of membership in the Owner's Forum include:

    1) Access to an owner's only forum.
    2) A high level of decorum will be the standard of behavior. There will be strict observation of the TOS and TOU.
    3) A personal "garage" thread to post information and discuss the cars and models that you own
    4) Owner's Forum users are expected to maintain the privacy of other Owner's Forum users
    5) Future features and enhancements are under consideration and being discussed

    So, if you're interested, drop tifosi12 a PM with your references, year and model of car, and he'll get the ball rolling for you."
