    Congrats on the car. I'm jealous of all you folks living in places with curvy roads!

    I use this laser device to park in the same exact spot every time

    Well, she fit in the Garage, my friend helped guide me in..its tight, but at least it fits..haven't tried alone yet. I definitely think i'll be buying one of those laser guide things. Being such a tight fit makes it a pain if you want to go run a quick errand and pull in / out but maybe i'll get used to pulling it in and out

    Hey Tarek, I picked up a black on black 458 today and it reminded me of your post. Drove it back from Costa Mesa. Amazing car!

    That’s entirely too tight of a fit. Extremely dangerous for both you and the 458. I’d advise you to downsize and sell me this beauty!

    Clean out the garage and put a door bumper on the driver side wall, you’ll be golden.

    Well guys the decision has been made, as many of you said, while the Gated Manual 360 was an amazing car to have, i just sold it and i'm keeping the 458 (for a while at least) Can't believe i'm a non- 3 pedal guy now, but the DCT F1 trans in the 458 really is engaging and amazing..i had always said i'd never go for flappy paddles, but i guess we all change lol.

    So goodbye Modena and hello 458 for real!
