Thank you David

You do have a fantastic looking 16M I am working down under just now off Darwin on a Oil Rig.
Will be heading back to cold Scotland on Friday have got the DRL lights to install when I get back.

Darwin hey! A bit far for me to pop over this evening for a couple of drinks.

Have fun with the DRLs. The only tip I've got is that you don't need to remove the front wheels for installation. Wheels either turned in or out is easy. I would wear some late gloves though when feeding in the led tubes.

The other one is to cover the engine bay when installing the rears. That way any dropped bolts etc don't fall in. I just let them go in because I like hunting for them and fishing them out!

:rifle: :fishing:

David.

Bill- Very pretty. I spent a bunch of time around Niceville flying out of Eglin AFB on test missions in the 80s.

The test missions made it possible to get the F430. I work avionics systems for the F-15 and F-16. My wife was working on software for the F-35 before she retired last summer. We've been here since Nov 2000.

Bill- Both I and my airplane, the F-111, are retired now. Just consult on RLVs on the side. Dropped or launched a bunch of PGMs on the Eglin ranges, some supersonic at low altitude.

Just acquired a 2008 F430 Scuderia in Black with Gold Stripe and Gold Wheels.
It is being transported now, ETA for delivery is Monday!
Here is a pic just prior to pickup by transport.
She will keep my Jag F-Type R company :)

My F430

2005 Nero/Nero F430

First F-Car and first post. I just picked this up in Newport Beach. I'm in love with this car. Previous owner had only put 3,700 miles on this in 10 years!

I'm looking at maybe some black rims to go with it. Anybody know a good place in socal to get F-car rims swapped?

Welcome to Ferrari Life. Very pretty F430. To me, she looks much better on silver wheels than black, but tastes vary. They never came from the factory with black wheels.

Great looking F430. Black rims could be a step too far IMHO, I went this way but retain the original rims too.

Cheers
Michael

Those are OEM Scuderia wheels, which came in gray or gold and with both 7.5" and 8 " front wheel versions.

That's the ones Terry, and with the CF wheel caps to set them off. I got them through a main dealer in the UK when they had a sale going.

Cheers
Michael
