My 458 and I have arrived

Just wanted to say hello - I've been a lurker for a while and very much enjoy the pure passion and knowledge that FL provides. Last summer I took delivery of my first Ferrari a 458 Italia. Fantastic vehicle, heritage it just doesn't get better than being an owner. One of my most favorite life moments aside from my children's births was walking into a dealer and buying that car. I have very few pics of my car as I took delivery late last summer and she's been hibernating in storage all winter. That said TODAY she rises from the basement of my dealership and I am bring her home to where she belongs!

My specs are Rosso Corsa on Nero with Rosso special stitching, nav, ipod, shields,power seats you know, the usual stuff. No carbon although on my next 458 I will definitely order the carbon steering zone with wheel.

Anyway, here are the only lousy pics I have! Family delivery day minus me who is photographing and a couple of other shots. Happy to be a member - see you on the roads!!

+1 ! Beautiful children.

Must feel great to walk in to a F dealer and buy one. I have yet to do that myself, which is a remote possibility because I seem to go after old, used cars.

Welcome to FL and looking forward to seeing more pics and drive comments too,

w/ smiles

LOL are they upside down??! Sorry about that! Thanks for the warm welcome. Took the car home today _ I literally almost teared up as I crossed 4000 rpm in race mode. I love that sound and the smell of the leather.

Alex, thank you. I'd love to upgrade the sound system...can you guys assist with this?

Pics look fine - don't use an iPad!

Lovely baby and the kids look great too. The 458 is one heck of a first Ferrari! Welcome.

[QUOTE=_CEO_;242413]LOL are they upside down??! Sorry about that!

I just figured another Aussie had joined!

She looks fabulous, and its always great when the kids buy into Daddy's dream! Next time you duck down the shops for a bottle of milk and the paper, take one of the kids, then when you don't come back for an hour 'she who must be obeyed' wont be able to ball you out as you were spending quality time with your children and those errands are gonna get longer and longer!

Cheers

LOL, on my iPhone & iPad they're definitely still upside down, then again perhaps Im still 'car' lagged from my exciting 2,000 mile Ferrari drive to the South of France

Jay, I can recommend Alex's mats as I've had two sets, you can bespoke them as you want, cost circa $400 IIRC.
