Jerry- CTEK is the battery charger that came standard with Ferraris after Sept 2007. I have one and it works great.
My car has an Interstate MTP-91, an 85 month heavy duty truck battery fitted to hundreds of Ferraris in the US with very good results. But if you want something different, here is a document I put together for the 575M that also applies to the F430.
The two absorbed glass mat batteries in this document are very powerful and fairly expensive.
Note the prices are out of date because I have not updated the document for a while. Note also, there are no Optimas in the document because they have had quality control problems.
Present: 575M 135171
Past: Dino 246 GT 02984, 365 GTB/4 14009, 308 GTS 25125
Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
