    Hi all

    We are currently writing an article on the Ferrari 458 (all models) and looking for some owner opinions on the car. We have all the content on the car itself, but wanted some owners views.

    It'll be great to get the opinions of people who lusted, owned and maybe sold the cars. Comparisons to other Ferrari's will be great, as will regrets, and problems too.

    Really we want to make it an all rounded article, but focused on the 458 only.

    I want to include as many views as possible, so short and concise will be better. Ideally less than 300 words. If you want to focus on just one point, that’s great too.

    For inclusion just send me your review via the Direct Conversations function. I can pick it from there. If you want to remain anonymous, just let me know.

    Thanks!
    Andy

    Why would you put the Speciale pic at top ??? Shouldn't it be the 458 Italia ? Suggests to me the Speciale is better to look at ( which I believe it is )

    The guide covers all 5 variations of the 458. Not just the Italia.

    PRO's and CON's seriously ???? Again damn SUBJECTIVE !!!!

    Better looking than the 488 GTB , That's YOUR comment, based on what.
    Depreciation Proof ???? are you joking
    Problems , again get your facts right. Fires , how many ? Gear boxes , how many ?
    No sticky buttons , you are dreaming

    Glad you pointed out the 458 ITALIA is slower than the 488 GTB 0- 62 and in fact has a lower Top speed. Somehow 458 owners believe they are the same.

    Would have spent more time on it. For me ill say well done regurgitating stuff , too many things left out and overall MEH

    The 458 Italia is a great car, a leap over the 430. Some people love it. Many have bought it then upgraded to the 488 GTB and believe that's a better car . So what.

    Its subjective.

    Gee I believe the MacLaren F1 is the best car ever, but ild still have a 488 GTB or a F8. Even better a F8 with the SF90 engine.

    Holly cow what if that's the F8 speciale :rolleyes:
