    Default 430 Cold start

    Hey Guys,

    Quick question, since I got my 430 about 6 weeks ago every start wether cold or not has been consistent, a very smooth rise of revs to about 2k then settles into a nice idle. Over the last 2 weeks or so since the weather has got extra cold the very first start of the day is ever so slightly different, it's like a step when it starts, goes to about 1000rmp then jumps to 2000rpm then settles to the normal nice idle. I'm probably not explaining this very well, I'll try and do a small video later, but the question I have though is why would it change, why is it now very slightly different for the first start of the day, the rest of the time it's still the smooth start I'm used to.

    Is this just another part of the Ferrari Character I need to get used to Do they just not like the really cold weather?

    Thanks for entertaining my daft questions

    John.

    English cold and Scottish cold are two completely different types of cold

    Apart from that, I have no other intelligent input to provide

    You are waiting for the OK light on the dash, before hitting the starter button?

    Yep, waiting for the check ok. Like I said, only does this the first time of the day, for the rest of the day it's fine using exactly the same starting procedure.
