    Hello all,

    This week new to me: 2015 458 Speciale, 2,100 miles for 396k. (I know not the best deal but I give a lot of weight to other factors).

    Options are pretty light except for large carbon fiber seats. I bought the car for the technical aspects (upgrade from the 458 Italia)...but what is really suprising me is the paint...I think it's amazing (and now I regret not doing a three stage paint on my 488 order) which is why I thought I would share some pictures of the Bianco Italia.

    Just had her detailed and I am pretty excited to get and enjoy her before the summer showers!

    That's great! What are the odds of that?

    Buddg: Congrates to you as well!

    I took it out last night for date night with the wifey...(whom I was sure would be less than impressed with my upgrade as it is missing the electic seats, more leather, ect.) - but she loved it more than the lowered 458 Italia based on the ride on the freeway, she is convinced it feels more "planted" even in the diffrent settings. Then she asked how much it was compared to the outgoing 458 Italia...I told her and then she instantly was less impressed:). It's still a win for me as she 'gets it' a little bit...

    Brian,

    That is an incredible 458 you have there. Extreme good taste and impeccable specs.

    Enjoy in good health. Wish you many miles of happiness and please keep those photos coming. Stunning Speciale!

    If you don't mind me asking: in what areas do you think the Speciale is clearly different/better than the Italia? (won't ask if there's anything worse, I assume there's none!)

    Kind regards,

    Nuno.
