Enough guys on here have both scuds and 458s. 458 is the newer better F car. What makes you guys keep/drive both. I would think the newer iterations just get better and more fun to drive. After owning the 458 what makes you want to get back in the scud or 16M? Just curious what's the motivation.
The 458 is much more versatile. More sound insulation, cruise control option, less carbon fiber bling. 458 is a little faster, depending on lower weight options ordered. Will have to see what happens when I get mine, but most likely, it will just be a necessary path to 458 (Scuderia, Monte Carlo, Competizione) ownership.
Many 458 owners have sold their 458's and gone back to Scuds, many Scud owners have moved to 458's. Just depends on how much "raw" you want in your sports car. If you are lucky enough to be able to afford both,
Best combo to me would be 16M and 458 coupe, or the other way around.
Enjoy your Scud coupe, right now, it is my favorite car. Just get the remote valve system done, or add an RSC or Capristo Exhaust.
