    My spider is an 08 and when I’m on it I can’t imagine wanting anything louder.

    I believe the 430 couldn’t comply with US airbag regulations so it kept them from offering those seats after 05.

    Yes, I would as a first Ferrari. Would I move to an F430 from any other exotics after this model? NO. The newer stuff (Huracan, 458), turbo or not, is more in every way except for the raw emotion feeling you get with the single clutch.

    So, if not a fan of louder performance headers, then is there an inexpensive solution to deal with the OEM header issue if you buy a stock F430? In other words, you’re not looking to enhance sound or performance, just to protect your purchase from the OEM header issue. Is keeping the OEM headers but fitting Capistro “sprung” brackets the only (partial) solution available?

    what i did, is weld up the oem header if cracked , and remove the oem bracket. $0 spend. voila, 5000km later, no issue yet

    Did you remove to OEM bracket and put nothing in its place? i.e . not support bracket at all?

    I can only say No, not again. I had a 360 for almost five years, then I changed it for 430, which I swapped for a MP4-12C after two years. The 430 is a great car, but not much far from the 360, which was the main reason for me to look for a newer car. As the 458 was too expensive for me, McLaren was the better choice.. After one more year I began to miss the prancing horse emblem on my steering wheel and started looking for another Ferrari. Now I added the 348 to my garage and it is more fun to drive it compared to 430.. But as I stated above, I still think the 430 is a great car
