    Hello,

    We have Ferrari portofino and i have few questions.
    We are on 3000km trip in europe, our ferrari is on original 20' wheels and Michelin Pilot Sport 4s tires.
    The car is very hard, uncomfortable. I want to drain the tire pressure by 0.4 bar, i done it and car is much better on long trip but the tire pressure sensor all the time shows the error and makes a sound.
    Is it possible to turn it off or do something to just not bother you?
    What do you think about Michelin PS4s? I heard that pirelli is much softer tire, so ich much more comfortable.

    I need to buy windshield to Ferrari portofino, the part number is 7677304, does any of you have for sale?
    Dealers told me that is not available in factory.

    Thank you for help!

    I don't know for sure about the Portofino (mine hasn't arrived yet),but there should be a calibration procedure described in your owners manual.

    Ferrari more than any other manufacturer works very closely with the tire suppliers testing cars at Fiorano with test drivers and engineers to come up with the safest tire/size/compound/pressure combination for your car. .4 bar is a considerable change and is being done solely for comfort?
    If comfort is your goal, buy a different car, otherwise put the pressures back where they belong.

    Our Portofino has Pirelli tyres on 20" Forged wheels plus Magneride and we have coved about 4,000km mostly around France and Spain, with and without lots of luggage and I think the ride quality is excellent for this type of car. Running recommended pressure. I have a spare set of wheels (also 20" forged) with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres which I will try later in the year and see how they differ.
    My Portofino came as standard with the folding windshield, I thought all EU spec cars did so I surprised you don't have one.

    you can easily recalibrate the sensor with the new pressure in the tpms menu on the driver left side menu
    good luck
