    Hello Gentleman.

    About a month ago I was given the opportunity to acquire a beautiful 458 Spyder that I have long watched from afar.

    Bianco Fuji over Nero/Rossa

    Just stopping in to say Hello and curious what your thoughts on her specification. I do have a few items thart I will be addressing over next winter. Sticky switches, Leather rewrap over the gauge pod, and installing those awesome CF Racing seats after they are restitched and harness made.

    Beautiful spec, through and through. Very nice choice!

    You’ve got a naturally aspirated V8 italian supersports car that has the fuel cutoff at 9.200rpm as per owner’s manual. Read that again and let that sink in.

    Enjoy in good health! Wish you many miles of happiness behind the wheel.

    Kind regards,

    Nuno.

    My wife bought me my 458 for Christmas ... divorce isn't always the answer. Congrats though, on which I'll let you guess :D

    Congratulations! Beautiful car. Drive it in good health. That car and pup in the passenger seat will get you all the tail you can handle. Sorry about the divorce. No matter who wanted it, it’s always a disappointing experience. Learn from it and move on. Life is no dress rehearsal. Enjoy and don’t let anyone take your happiness away ever again ;)

    My divorce was worth in at twice the cost.
    Your sanity and happiness are worth so much more than money. Enjoy your beautiful car! Love the yellow calipers.

    Congrats on the new car !

    Where did you get the racing seats ?

    Were you able to install them without a visit to the dealer for ECU tweaking ?

    I don’t normally comment on these threads but Damn this one looks good.

    If this were for sale 6 months ago When I purchased mine, I would have considered it for sure as I like those other than Rossa.

    Is that Carpet or Alcantara?

    Enjoy

    OP, congrats on the car , beautiful spec !
    I just sold my 991 gt3 , looking to get a 458 as well. Are you happy with 458 exhaust note vs Gt3 ? On my test drives I felt stock exhaust 458 was very monotone 6 k to redline , gt3 Aftermarket exhaust had more dramatic high pitch mechanical noise to 9 k.
    I would love to hear your opinion.

    I can answer that question for you. If you are an audiophile, you will LOVE the 8 cylinder scream near 9 k and soon you will forget the Porsche GTs.. at least I did. Natural aspirated of course.

    When my ex wasn't excited at the idea if me buying a 430 Scuderia, I knew that was the end of our future together...

    Congrats on the new car!
