Rik- I believe the 458 has all silicone hoses, so they should not be a problem, and I doubt Dave is making kits for the 458 yet.
The car should still be under warranty unless it is a very early car, and I would take it to the dealer and have him check it out and make sure the fans, thermostat, etc are working as designed, and have him bleed the system after a flush and change of coolant. The 458 water temperature gauge in the TFT is redlined at 245 F, but I am not sure when the high water temperature warning lamp illuminates.
F- The water temperature warning indication has not been on, has it? Also, normal internal tire temperature has been published in some TPMS sources as -40 F to 246 F and you are well below that.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
