I like this place =)

Sorry for the noobiness, but until recently I had never heard of the Ferrarilife forum. Mark's for-sale ad for his BATA opened my eyes and led me to this hidden oasis

Very glad to see some familiar names here as well.

I just wanted to say hi! And what's a first post without pics =)

She is a 2009 430 Scuderia, finished in Rosso Corsa. I am the 2nd owner, picked her up at 1,800 miles (previous owner definitely kept it for me!) and have since put on 4,000 more miles =)

Moderately modded, though by most Ferrari owners' standards, it probably would be considered heavily.

Mods so far:
• Novitec springs
• HRE 20" P47s
• Carbonio F1 paddles
• Hill Engineering dead pedal
• MaCarbon carbon map light
• Challenge tow hook (front & rear)
• BMC race intake filters
• Front skid plates

Uninstalled mods so far:
• Kreissieg F1 exhaust mode 3 & 5

Alwin,

We have a huge Scuderia / 16M community here. Kind of like FCHAT loves the 360 CS, most of us are huge Scud fans here. Look at the Scud modification thread, lots of good reading.

Al- Welcome. Very pretty Scuderia. Like Mark said, a large contingent of hairshirt Ferrari owners here. If there is a mod to the Scuderia/16M possible, these guys have done it.

Welcome here Alwin, you did well to discover this forum Lot's of good exchanges here.

I love your first picture, very very nice! These wheels are impressive. By how much did you lower your car?

They are my "pimpin" wheels for the street =)
20" HRE P47s finished in anthracite gun metal.

For track, I have my 19" stockers as well as my BBS Fi, both wrapped in MPSS.

I went with the larger diameter HRE wheel to "fill" up my wheel arches better and to get that more aggressive stance. It's a visual illusion because the rolling diameter remains unchanged, but boy is it a sexy illusion =)

I simply followed your lead on all the 575 mods.

Carbon Fiber is the new triple plated chrome.



Alwin stunning Scud!

What is written in yellow on the tires?

Wow gotta try it before I put on Michelins this spring.

Debating red or yellow - probably do yellow just to piss Mark off.
