Avio blue 430 spider

Figured I'd post these here instead of the new member section.
This is my first F-car - '08 Avio blue, only had about 2K miles when I purchased last June, right at 2,500 now. I really only get it out on weekends but it has surpassed ALL my expectations. It was a lifelong dream to own a Ferrari and I haven't regretted my decision one time.
Glad to be a member on the site - looking forward to getting know you all much better.


Rodney

Very good looking spider - it also looks extremely familiar.

License plate matches the exterior

Get this man an owners tag!

Wait, don't I have to submit a DNA sample or something?
Funny, you mention the plate. I had a personalized plate BLU BY U
picked out, but the environmental was too close a color match.

hahaha ... FLife doesn't require blood or hounds to pass the sniff test like the other place.

You will find it a whole lot different over here - especially the overall tone.

Enjoy!

Welcome to FL Rodney!

Your car is absolutely stunning! Love also your rear CF Challenge Grill and the sleeves on the exhaust pipes (I made this mods too)

Ideally we ask for a picture of the owner with the Italian Ambassador.

or alternatively just pictures of your car and the SN number. We operate on a trust basis here.

What a tastefully specked up car.
I love the exterior/interior combo.
It looks so refreshing compared to our red Ferrari's.
It's gorgeous!
