I have never really liked the stock F430 front bumper but after taking this pic I had to change my opinion, but I still like the Scud front better...



Hard to decide, keep it or replace it with a Scud front...?

P.s. how do you obtain an 'owner' tag?

You may wanna check out the Scuderia Bambino thread.

Personally I think the std. 430 bumper fits the car - but once you start you may never stop.

Andrew who owns the site will place the owners tag - any moment.

Trust me I've seen every page of that thread and I love his car!
But I don't want my F430 to BE a Scud, I was thinking about a Scuderia conversion for the exhaust but I don't want a replica Scuderia, I love my luxurious interior etc.
IMHO the only right way is when you start converting the car to a Scuderia is to go all the way like addict does...
And even then your missing out on one of the unique selling points... the faster gearbox.
So I'm thinking about the Scud front bumper and side skirts and for the rear a Challenge grill with the OEM 4 tips exhaust.

To give it even a bit more OEM 'normal' F430 look I might want to paint the carbon part of the Challenge grill in Rosso Corsa, I haven't seen anyone doing this before so I think it will be quite unique .

JWD, is your front reg a sticker? Looks very flush with the bumper!

JWD welcome and a magnificent first F car.
Must compliment you on your colour choice it really is stunning.
The cabin is so much more "airy" with the light colours.
Daytona seats also very attractive.

However to me what especially stands out is the neat garage the car is kept in.

Nice! I sold my '06 M5 to get my first red/tan Ferrari a couple years ago. I do not miss that car one bit. Enjoy!

Yes it's a sticker and slightly off-set due to my shaking hands at the dealer when I picked up the car .

@Sandy Eggo; I've kept them both, in fact I like the M5 better now since it doesn't have to pretend to be a exotic sportscar anymore, it's a great DD .
