    Picked up my 458 at the factory last week and did a 2000km trip from Maranello to the UK. Great fun and excellent car. Two issues I hope other owners can share their experience.

    1. Water temperature seems a bit higher than the other Ferrari such as 599 and 430. On Highway, it was perfectly normal at around 85 whereas during stop&go traffic, it went as high as 100 but stable. Is that normal??

    2. After downloading MP3 to the Harddisk via the USB port, I couldn't get the HDD to recognize the content. Does the HDD play MP3 or only some special formats?? The CD drive did work however.

    thanks

    Will try to post pictures once I find some time. Anyway, there must be owners out there who have used the car enough to share their experience with the two issues I mentioned. PLS...................

    temperature was always at around 80-90- Dealer told me before in prebriefing that 100 is a normal temp, bt I never reached it.
    Didn't try yet the HD, just using my ipod (btw, what is the HD capacity?)
