A couple of weeks ago I had a bit of a miscommunication with the mechanic as to which exhaust brackets needed to be replaced on my F430. This led me to buy a set of the Capristo exhaust brackets that...

Red to yellow tachometer swap successful

Ever since I picked up my F430 in January, the red tach has been bothering me. It's just so... dark... and not backlit! It might as well be black at night.
