    Just bough this beatifull 05´ Giallo F430 F1 Coupe with 9k miles only! The car just had a recent extensive service at the Ferrari dealer which included all brake pads, filters and fluids, plus clutch.

    The car sports aftermarket upogrades like 20 inch wheels which I plan to change for OE ones, if you have any shoot me a PM). Hamann Exhaust and Novitec Rosso intake.

    Car has contrast yellow stitching, carbon interior pack and other options.

    I have been reading about all common failures and would like more info about header failure, is this at any specific mileage? I do hear some clicking sound from the RH header, like from the cat itself.. Would like to hear any recommendations if should address that ASAP.

    Post pics of your setup to have a few ideas! [​IMG][/url][/IMG] [​IMG][/url][/IMG] [​IMG][/url][/IMG] [​IMG][/url][/IMG] [​IMG][/url][/IMG] [​IMG][/url][/IMG]

    Congrats!! Beautiful 430. A smoke test is the best way to check for header cracks. Mine cracked at 12K miles. Have had the MK2s on now for 27K with no issues

    Here's what I did on my 2005 yellow 430. Added a rear wing. Replaced parking lights with yellow LED. Painted intake yellow w/black logo. Painted a/c rings yellow.

    Congratulations. Beautiful spec!

    Did they say why it needed a clutch after only 9K miles?

    HaHa!
    Google F430 with wing or Spoiler and you will see hundreds of them.
    But you won't find many with yellow intakes.

    Congrats, car looks great!
    As far as the manifold, I would just get some after market headers. Check your PM, I might have a OEM 19" wheels you might be interested in.
