05 f430

Is there any real difference between the 2005 and 2006 430 coupe/spyder? I am looking to get into a low mileage 430 next year. I know the saying goes "buy the latest year model you can afford"....Where there any significant upgrades or changes between these years? Any red flags with the 2005? thanks!

No real difference from the 05 to an 09... The only problematic areas on these cars have been the exhaust brackets and exhaust manifolds being faulty as well as the f1 pump going bad which can also be an expensive repair... The capristo exhaust brackets are an easy fix and you can check of the car has already been upgraded to the mk2 headers or aftermarket headers such as capristo or fabspeed... Other than that these cars are very reliable!

I have an '05 F430 with 9000 miles! These cars were very sorted right out of the plant. Just check the service records on the headers and brackets. Buy from a reputable dealer and believe me you will LOVE this car!
