    Hey all you cool cats and kittens (Carole definitely killed her husband Btw)

    Been lurking on the forums for awhile and finally found the right specs on a beautiful 458 spider. I picked her late February and over the last month did a few modifications that I had my heart set on.

    Like most I contemplated between a coupe and spider and also looked a few 488 along the way. I definitely made the right choice for me. The sound of the 458 and 9000 rpms was too intoxicating for me to overlook

    Had the car wrapped a satin pearl white, satin black roof and had all the emblems done in satin black. Also had ceramic coating applied over the wrap and the wheels powder coated.

    Once that was done I had it lowered slightly on stock springs also had an S-line X pipe and fabspeed race pipes installed.

    This car is nothing short of amazing to me. Never have I had a car that puts this big of a smile on my face every time I drive it.

    Just wanted to share. Hope you all are staying happy and healthy out there.

    Nice job Mike!!

    I love the look of your car lowered on the stock springs.
    I need to do mine sometime soon.

    I hope you have many years and many miles of enjoyment in her.
    Not the car to drive when you want to blend in.....;)
    Beautiful job making it yours!!

    Best wishes,

    Mike, congrats. That’s one sexy 458 right there.

    An italian exotic super sports car with a 9.200 rpm fuel cutt off... Yes, few things in this life are more intoxicating.

    Thanks for the photos and keep enjoying in good health!

    Kind regards,

    Yes i am located in San Diego. One of the best performance shops here is HG performance. They did the exhaust and lowered it and did the alignment. Yes i have the front suspension lifter, they were only able to adjust it about 15mm which was perfect for me. I didnt want it too low but wanted to get rid of some of that wheel gap. Very happy with the results

    OK, it took me a few days to get your "Tiger King" reference. San Diego is one of the best places to own a 458 Spider. The weather, the scenery . . . the weather.
