    They look like HRE P101SC (or competing brand equivalent).

    Do you think it's possible to put the Speciale Aperta springs on the 458 Spider ? I think it's 1cm-2cm lower ?

    Sounds expensive. Why not use Notivec or stock springs?

    Hi,
    I find to low the novitec. I just want 1cm or 2cm lowering.
    And with the original had problem when they lowered them, on my 488 they damaged the aluminum body threaded shaft.

    My car is on Novitec with 20mm lowering. They're adjustable so you can dial it in anywhere from stock (I think) to ridiculously low (probably 5cm+).

    @TAGMotorsports would probably be able to provide more info. They did my car.

    We love the Novitec spring setup. They are absolutely perfect for these cars!

    late to thread...Here is my 458 on novitec springs and 20" volk te37 wheels. I had the car dropped on the OEM springs for a while but the ride wasn't good. at this height even in race mode the car is pretty comfortable. Handling in the twisties is much improved but I think that's due more to a proper alignment to specs.

    Looks beautiful. Black is so hard to keep clean. And I usually don't like aftermarket wheels but those look good; I like Volks because they're more function over form. Makes the car look more purpose-built.

    How bad does ride quality become once installed. Don’t tell me it’s better, because it’s not lol.

    Your stance now is how stock should be. Nice. But come on, go 10-15 mm lower for per-fec-tion!

    Ride quality has not suffered. I really don't notice it.
