New F430 Owner!

I just wanted to introduce myself. I am the proud new owner of an F430 Spider, I have named her Sophia.

She is TDF Blue with a Novitec Rosso conversion.

TJ- Welcome to Ferrari Life. What part of the conversion does the car have? Those are not Novitec wheels.

She is a real beauty.

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

TJ- Just be glad you did not have to pay to have all that work done. That is a pretty complete package and the NF3s were a $10K+ option. Did you get the OEM wheels along with the deal? Might come in handy later.

Looks like a cuoio interior, which is my favorite interior color.

Yes, I definitively wouldn't have paid the $130k for the novitec system the previous owner paid.

I didnt get the OEM wheels, but I figure I can but them for as good of a deal as I got on the car if I need to.

Teejay,
Welcome to Flife! I know this car very well, I used to live in Houston and knew the previous owner. I hope you enjoy her for years to come.

One of life's greatest pleasure: you and your car, and an open road with no cops around

430 looks great. One of my favorite color combinations.

Have you done any trips in it yet?

Welcome to FerrariLife Teejay Wow, that's quite an impressive engine upgrade. Did they give you a Dyno graph? Would love to see the engine performance results with a bi-compressor/double supercharged F430 engine

I did a drive to Austin a couple weeks ago. Lots of fun.

Going to be taking it back to Austin again in the fall for football.

No, they didnt, but the shop that I use has a mustang dyno I will eventually put it on to see what she does.
