    Perfect use of the white Ricambi cap (since I don't wear any).

    You gotta admit, it's great advertising. Anyone looking at a Ferrari up close always looks inside. :)

    One of the joys of owning a Spider!

    You can't experience that with a roof over your head!

    Here it only rains , and seldom is above 20 degrees Celcius, so that cool knob is a joy to hold...

    Lots of funny answers but not much help!

    Looks like I'm going to look like an idiot wearing driving gloves!

    Wade's suggestion seems helpful. Of course, that will only help while parked.

    Put on a nice CF knob?

    I use the hat trick when I remembered to do so. I have pulled old gas receipts out of my center console and wrapped the knob. I guess if I was organized I would keep the end of a child's sock or some other similar cover in the glove box.
