    Good car. I like all those carbon fibre on F430. Realy well specced car. If you German buyer than it is no problems, but if you want to export car take care, because usually all F-dealers in Germany do not sell new F-cars for export. But this F430 is really fine, if you really want to get this car and can do it, than do it. Best.

    Both cars are great. It is for you to choose which you like most. There are only few specifical differences between them, it matter of taste which to buy.
    I can say only good words about BOSE sound system on 2007 MY F430, have tested it and can express my personal opinion. My dealer told me that BOSE is very often choosen option. Best.

    In 2007 the only option for audio was the new BOSE? I heard that the standard audio in Ferrari is ****....? Right?
    For daily drive it's better to take the car with daytona and bose...?

    Best regard and thank you for helping me in that improtant moment for me :)!

    Personally I would prefer car with Daytonas, BOSE and Red Brake calipers. That car suits to my taste more. By the way, "Racingsportsitze" seat option is not so suitable for DD use and you right, many customers are not satisfied with standart audio in F430. Best.

    Thanks a lot...
    I need to hear something from other users but I probably take the F. with daytonas , HiFi ( but i dont know is it Bose or the old Becker audio??)
    Carbon Interieur Kit means that the steering-wheel is also carbon? (I don't have photos of the second car...)

    Best regards.

    The audio is not worth worrying about in a 430. I put a custom system in my car that sounds INCREDIBLE only when the engine is off!!
    In your 997 you can actually get the benefit of a god audio system but in the 430 the engine is MUCH louder in the cockpit.

    I had the upgraded audio option checked on my build sheet. I think they switched to bose mid year because mine (delivered in august 2007) had the upgrade but not the bose system. the dealer and I were both curious which one would be installed when it arrived because they had just made the change public in may or june maybe.

    the system in mine is a lot better than they used to be. actually sounds pretty good. I'm also not a fan of bose. lot of plastic tube hype if you ask me.

    I have the Bose, it sucks but I dont care. i have the Daytonas (power) and they are a MUST. I have carbon interior and it DOESNT mean the wheel, paddles and gauge cluster will be carbon (that is an additional option) there is carbon upper, carbon lower and carbon wheel,paddles gauges etc. I just have the carbon upper which includes around the a/c vents only.

    Strong statement. That's purely subjective isn't it?
    And body type certainly dictates what is comfortable. Unlike the Daytona seat, the factory racing seat is available in sizes in order to accommodate different body types and ultimately offer a more custom fit. IMO the racing seats are better suited to the 430 and far more comfortable. Personally I never understood electrically operated seats in a two seat sports car with no storage behind them. How often does one actually adjust their seat? The Daytona and electric seat options are typically more desirable in the US however, that may not be as a result of comfort but merely tradition.

    I just picked up my 2007 a few weeks ago. I ordered the HI-FI system and it came with the Becker and subwoofer setup. I think if people ordered a nav system they might end up with the Bose system or maybe the Becker would have come with the nav. system if I had ordered it. I do enjoy the sound of it. It is very clear with the top down at 80 MPH on the freeway. You will not want the stereo on anytime you are on a backroad or have the revs over 5K
