Should have bought a Red one, they handle better lol..!!!!

naw, should have ordered the Pirelli tyres rather than Bridgestones, worth 0.6sec per lap (according to top gear) :D

The word is that 430 brakes are not as powerful as owners often expect them to be. Apparently, stopping distances are as much as 2 feet more than drivers are anticipating.

Therefore, Ferrari must be responsible for this prang.:D

same thing happened to my mates Porsche 911 Turbo after owning it less than a month, a Corsa decides to do an emergency stop for a pigeon on the motorway and he couldn't stop quick enough cos he didn't leave enough gap. Result £8k worth of damage :mad:
 
Quite a few opt for ceramic discs on recent Ferraris; my old fella had a 2002 360 Spider until last year and he tried the 360 Stradale (with ceramic discs) while his was in for service. He reckoned they were scarily poor for road use due to their need for high operating temps. He nearly overshot junctions a few times as a result...

That 430 is an awesome, awesome thing. Doesn't sound quite the same as a 360 though...
