    Yup, the Carbino looks legit, even has the OEM emblem on the airbox. Price is also very reasonable considering the amount of carbon fiber involved.

    Congratulations on the 458. It would be great to have another Ferrari mate to go explore some of our great AZ roads with. Let me know, as long as you don’t mind hanging with a 430

    Congratulations on your new car. It is beautiful! Welcome to the addiction. For your first Ferrari you pretty much started at the top! I’m on my 2nd 458 Italia and I have to say every time you drive it it will keep getting better. Enjoy and drive it in good health!

    You knew exactly what spec you wanted and went after it.

    Well done.

    Great job. I picked up a 2400 mile 458 spider this spring. Almost up to 4k already. I think it is a forever car. Congratulations!

    Not to be a D, but I have all of that so take it from me, do it all and more, you won’t regret it...sooner you get pipes on this car sooner you’ll realize “I should have done this immediately” :) Just trying to help you out.

    Beautiful car and spec. I think it'd be a mistake to modify it considering it's low mileage and history, regardless if the mods are reversible. The 458 sounds perfect as-is.

    I do like how it sounds, and its very loud, so exhaust isnt really something that is high on the priority list of mods. Definitely want to do some wheels though, and some carbon pieces.

    This is the model I am looking at now and same colour. Reading your story kind of makes me feel like I just bought it also. Thanks for the write up. Having dreams are important, maybe the wait is a good thing.

    I wanted this car too...on my 2nd coupe just figured I’d have it at 5k miles pretty quick so I decided to save 40k and take one with 5k mile. I love your car! Yours is a 15 too I think if you ever do swap it out for a spyder or something if the $ matters to you’ll be in a better spot imo. Definitely without a doubt I’d have the valves open on the exhaust the low rpm sound is hypnotic. I’m jealous
