Fabio- It is close on the paddles and the wiper control, but everything works without hitting the paddles, so should not be a problem. I made sure and tried it when we had one of our rare rainfalls here.

Very clever on the fuel cap gasket. I ordered the gasket, tried to separate the plastic piece and promptly cracked it, so Daniel at Ricambi kindly exchanged the gasket towards a complete new gas cap assembly. The old aluminum gas cap looks good in a shadow box in the family room, so not a complete loss.

You will love the functionality of the new paddles once you get used to them. You can hold down the turn signal lever and downshift at the same time, so pretty handy.

Your photo looks very similar to one I took.

Fabio- Will not take you long to get used to reaching under the paddles, not that I see rain here very often. I would have a hard time going back to normal paddles after a couple of years with the Carbonios.

Fabio - Terry is correct, you'll get used to the longer paddles and the location of the wiper and turning stalk very quickly.

Clyde, Terry,


in every case the CSP are wondeful .... and i agree with you that will not take you long to get used the long paddles...
During this months i less drove my 575 due to the disease of my father (now is on best life, and he see me from the sky ...) and the arrive of my first little girl.
The 575 have only two seats, my wife sometimes tell me " why you don't change for a 4 seats?", i like too the maranello, and i don't like to trade for a 612, if i could do the second F then would to buy a 612 OTO ...

Fabio, my wife was born in Prague, came to New York City with her mother when she was 17. When she was little, they had no telephone, no television, no refrigerator. "Power to the people"! Living in New York City she rarely needed a car - until she moved to Saratoga Springs. Since she came here, she regarded an automobile as a tool for going from here to there. But since she and I came together three years ago, she has a new attitude about automobiles and has come to enjoy driving with me in the Ferraris and the Maserati and is not even nervous when we are on the circuits at Watkins Glen and Lime Rock, our nearest tracks.

Seth,
you have a set of wonderful cars ... i think that your wife likes those ....
Good thing that she likes go with you on circuits!
My wife likes my F575 (also if she prefer not red colour), my MB CLS but for a classic car the work is in progress .... For the other side she likes some paintings that for me are orrible ... !
Good of my wife, although not likes classic cars, support me my hobbies ....

Hello at all,
yesterday i driven my 575 for 250 km, i went in a meeting on the Bologna hills, nice places, nice roads, nice friends!
I tested for the first time my carbon paddles .... i thinked that was a problem the moving of wipers arm, instead no, but the left arm yes!
The turning of lights lever is not easy, like the moving of the indicator arrows ....
I'll have to get used to ...

Fabio- After a couple of years of using them, I now hold down the turn signal for lane changes while downshifting at the same time. You just have to get used to them. My paddles have never intefered with the turn signal stalk.

hello guys,
Today i picked up my 575 and we went to a little tour whit my wife that was interested to listen the new voice of the 575......
The wheather was not so good but the way was dry, we did 40 km around Ravenna, my wife about new sound told me 'it appear to stay in a rocket...' Ahahah
Today i not push all the gas stroke but my impression is that the answer to the gas movement of the engine is so fast and also the engine push appear increase, also the velocity to go up rpm, arrive at rpm limitator is like close and open eyes,,,,,,,
What a beatiful toy ! ! !
