First Ferrari:

All,

I finally took delivery on my 2007 F430 Spider! I want to thank all of you for transparent encouragement and enthusiasm you all display on this forum. I won't go into detail on the transport nightmare but I will if needed, lets just say I will see what happens as results and action pending. Please excuse the pics,,, can't edit or adjust to view right,,,suggestions? More pics?

Very pretty. Upside down images seem to be an artifact of I-Whatevers. Sometimes even fixing them in PhotoShop does not work. Let us see.

Worked this time.

I got a dumb question. Are the 16m's just spider scuds? Or are all spider F430's called 16m's?

16M is a Spider Scuderia.

'SCUD' Verb. To move fast as if driven by the wind.

Thank you for all the great comments! Unfortunately I will need to wait till spring to drive it. I am sure I will have lots of questions so I want to thank you all in advance!

Can anyone recommend the best soft top, leather, and wax/wash products for this car??

Many people have had excellent results with Swissvax. SWISSVAX – The ultimate car care products hand-made in Switzerland
They have "systems" for achieving the best results with their products.
Pricey, but then again, you just bought a $150k+ car, right???

+1 for Swissvax, I use all of their product for body, wheel and leather care and have been very satisfied with the long lasting results. They are indeed a bit more expensive but they last very long too
