I remember reading someone saying they had a switch that could open and close the valves electronically on their 488 - would this impact the warranty, and what was it called? Can anyone recommend a place in Manchester that'd fit it?

Its usually the Capristo exhaust controller that is mentioned - as with any exhaust mod the warranty effect is uncertain but at least could give another reason to challenge a claim - any of the several regularly named indies around Manchester could fit and supply if necessary

The Forza exhaust controller is widely regarded, most common on the 458. It is plug and play. I think the warranty position is not clear cut.

+1 for forza. Had it on my coupe and spider. Really easy to install and inexpensive. All it does it force the valves open or leave them in automatic mode

What's the general consensus about the warranty with one of these fitted?

I have never fitted one of these but have unplugged every exhaust I’ve had on both Lambo’s and Ferraris. I have had dealers advise me that it isn’t a problem apart from on the f8 which would throw a wobbly because of the particulate filters!
Not sure the switches are necessary tbh if you’re light on the throttle they’re not that loud!

I have a 488 with the exhaust values that can be opened manually.

I had them fitted by Ferrari, which didn't affect the warranty, as they did it.

Then the warranty went out of time and it didn't make any difference.
