    Default Just bought this F430 Spider

    http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/3567175.htm

    It was exactly the car spec that I wanted and having the Ferrari warranty means I will have some peace of mind for some time to come. Nice car, nice milage, nice history so really pleased with it. Collecting it in the next few weeks and now I am really looking forward to the summer months!.

    I have to say really pleased with the drive as well, I used to have a 360F1 but I have never driven a stick shift one before and for me I found it very rewarding.

    Also bought an Astra Diesel on the way home to use as a daily driver lol so kind of an odd day really.

    Very nice indeed. You must be chuffed.

    Those Astra's are fantastic, great on fuel, the parts are not too expensive either. Plus of course a decent level of equipment as standard, did you get base model or a higher spec one?

    Metallic paint?

    Do you buy privately or from a dealer?

    It is the SRTDI or something like that a 1.9 in metallic black, 1 owner 40K and it is in mint condition. I bought it from a dealer it is an 06, I needed a practical daily driver as I play Ice Hockey and always need to lug bags of gear and friends all over the place. Was up for 7150 and I paid 6250 for it today. Thing is I had the cash on me as I just sold my classic 32K 1 owener rs1600i and the Ferrari dealer did not want to take more than a few grand cash. Just happened to be driving home and noticed it at a local garage. My 997 Turbo is being chopped in on the Ferrari and I have an 800HP Nissan that is not a daily drive car so I was really crying out for something "Normal". I have never had a diesel before so looking forward to something that does over about 15MPG lol.

    Yeah Congratulations. That Astra does sound fantastic lol WTF

    The F430 isn't too shabby either but if I was you I would only take it out in the early mornings on weekends in case anyone spots you in it

    I'd love a go in a manual 430. When I got mine I didn't even think about a manual.
