    I hate it. It looks way to much like an add-on.

    It does. Notice the carbon fiber trim on the dash, then the aluminum trim around the shifter.

    I'm not sure it's a real picture. I don't have any others to compare it to.
    I found it in the F430 picture thread.

    It really does look awful; like a reluctant half-assed move by Ferrari. It's F1 or nothing in their eyes.

    Hi guys,

    In that lovely little center section - - select + or -.(forward or reverse).
    Then you can play the part of your favorite hero in F1 racing - flick right for up - flick left for down. Nothing here is right or wrong - - nor is it better than or worse than. What do you like? Buy it and enjoy - - I'll do the same. Choices are fun, no?

    Cheers, Hank

    hey, well im still a little confused, i read this article(found here:http://www.latimes.com/classified/automotive/highway1/la-hy-neil20jul20,0,2097473.story?coll=la-class-autos-highway1) and it talks about the F430 Spider and the author says that this car has paddle shifters, but then why do many websites say the car is automatic? if it has paddle shifters it is still a manual...can someone explain this to me. and as you might have guessed i have not had the wonderful experience of driving this car...YET! thanks..

    It is an add on.

    It's actually a paper weight that the Factory stuck on.

    Heres a pic of one of the first RHD 430 spiders in the UKthat i collected for my boss 4 weeks ago. NOTE: you will notice that this gear shift is not the same as the above, this one is more curved than the other one at the top of thread. So whats going on??

    That's the picture I was looking for. I knew I saw a picture of one that looked different.
    It looks good.

    Any more pics of that 6-speed F430 (interior mostly)? That is the first red on tan F430 I've seen with the CF seats, it is almost identical to the color combo/options I'm thinking about ordering on mine next year.

    Thanks in advance.

    With the F1 paddle shifters, I believe there is no clutch peddle to press down when you shift. Almost like tipronic in a porsche. Thus it being a sort of "automatic"

    It looks much better in those pictures. It still looks a bit off though.

    Texas Mike,

    John did not take those photos -- I did. And I have plenty more, if you want to see them. Any particular part you're looking for?
