I fully agree with Camdon53, especially the part "Lucky you!". Please also read my comments to mattroberts123 on the same subject.
Further, always keep a maintenance battery charger connected when parked for more than a week. The electronic system likes a full charge to work perfectly. If the battery is very low but the car still just stars you may find it wont change gears. However, by switching it to automatic it will change gears fine. You will then need to calibrate the electronics by switching on the ignition for 30 seconds, switch it off again, wait another five seconds and then crank the engine up.
Nevertheless, like Camdon53 states, when there is a doubt, always read the manual before actions.
Regarding your call sign Coffeeis4closers, as opposed to the line in the film it doesn't take brass balls to drive a 430. But when you step out of a 430 after a good drive it certainly feels like they are made of solid brass.
Buona fortuna con la compra della 430!
