Greetings and Salutations!...awaiting 430!!

As a short intro, I grew up on BMW's all my life, but my real passion for driving was sparked with the Lotus marque with my first Elise. I've been racing now with the Lotus Challenge Series, now known as LotusCupUSA, in my 211. The Lotus made me truly appreciate the visceral driving experience of which I am now looking for in a Ferrari.

When I sold my street Elise, I was searching for something to replace the fun driving experience of it and jumped into a Vantage, though it left me unsatisfied in regards to road feel.
Fast forward, I am about a week away from picking up a black 430 Spider and I could not be more excited!!!

If there are any meets here in the Inland Empire, please let me know. Looking forward to meeting fellow enthusiasts!

Welcome to Ferrri Life. Sounds like a really nice car. Hoping for photos as soon as you get her. Everyone says the Astons are beautiful, but kind of wooden compared to a Ferrari, especially a mid-engine Ferrari. Nice engines in the Astons, though. Hard to knock a great sounding V12.

Welcome to FerrariLife Your new F430 will be very enjoyable experience and you'll enjoy this car even more after a long Lotus experience. Don't hesitate to post your pictures and questions in the F430 section of this forum.
