Smile PICS & VIDS: My new Ferrari F430 Giallo Modena

I want to formally introduce my new car.
It's a Ferrari F430 in Giallo Modena/yellow exterior with Nero/black interior.

The car came with Tubi GTC exhaust.
And of course, if you know me, I put a few mods just two days after it's delivered
- Carbonio CF airboxes and BMC filters
- Carbonio CF challenge longer paddles
- Carbonio CF cupholder
- H&R spacers (for now before I get my wheels)















CF dashboard trim option:



Yellow tach option:



Daytona seats with yellow stitching option:



Extended leather rear shelf & door moulding option :



High power Hifi with subwoofer option:



Full leather roof headliner option:







Carbonio CF challenge paddles:









First round mods





Carbonio CF airboxes vs stock:





Tubi GTC exhaust:







I need to "upgrade" my garage





Some VIDEOS:

simply put the car is amazing, Those CF air boxes look 10x better than stock.

the down shift paddle looks very close to the wheel, even closer than the up.. can you even fit your hand/fingers between the paddle and the wheel?

Car is gorgeous. Can I ask how basic maintenance is on one of these? Judging by how the engine is set in the bay, it appears accessing it would be kind of tricky. I have no idea because I've never seriously been involved with ferraris, other than seeing them at shows

It's not that close, just the angle and my lens prob, I'll take a regular pic with iPhone.

Basic annual full fluid service is around $1000 from an authorized Ferrari dealer.
