    And I just swapped my 458 for - an F430 gated manual!! How funny is that?!

    Absolutely loved loved loved my 458. Stunning car all around and I'll own another 458 in the (near) future.

    Why did I sell it and buy the gated 430? Well it has to be the stick shift, 430 noise and (main reason),driving engagement in the 430.

    I'm actually very surprised at my perception after owning the 430. The 430 is a "never sell" car for me.

    The 458 is incredible, but I felt I could forgo it currently for the 430.

    Both amazing cars and your 458 looks gorgeous.

    I believe ownership of these cars is a privilege and it's so great being able to swap stories on a forum like this.

    It's great that you have experienced both cars. Love your ride, whatever that may be

    Normally is at this time of year when quite a few cars are off the road for the winter.

    It's also a relatively small forum as most members are taken from a smallish demographic. You'll get far more responses on PH from people with strongly held opinions. Granted it'll be from people who haven't driven the car and base that opinion on what they've seen and heard on YouTube, but you'll get more responses.

    For what it's worth I read your post and although I've not driven either a manual 430 or 458 I can relate to your point of view. I've driven newer cars than mine but prefer the mechanical feel of the older models. Totally understand that others prefer the more modern cars though.

    ..and some of us have just returned from a holiday.

    I love the look of the 458 but that said I like the look of most Ferraris I've seen. I'm also easily pleased regarding both new and old cars. I just like cars
