PS in terms of useability, you can get a surprising amount of luggage in. We use squashy bags and lay a suit carrier on top of them. Why a suit carrier? - a couple of the Italy trips were for Ferrari events which included a formal dinner for which I had to take a suit and my wife had to take a long dress.

Love the 458 spider. How much were they when new with a bit of usual UK must have spec?
I paid £225,000. Rosso Corsa, Carbon rear panel, carbon front wingy things, carbon wheel centres, sports exhaust, carbon steering wheel, carbon trim, carbon buckets, full black leather with red stitching, black carpets, upgraded stereo (cant remember which), yellow rev counter, wing shields. Err, think that's it without digging the original order out. Didn't get lift, it's never needed it (F12 does).

Plus a detail and then a full PPF at Paintshield. I've added the tri coloure stripes (over the PPF) and had the wheels done in the same gold my old Speciale wheels were since. They were grey/diamond cut but were getting tatty.

I think it came to £244,000 list but I haggled. Bizarre to get any discount thinking about how things have been over the last few years. Times of discounts are coming again I suspect. I was cash but that generally doesn't mean discounts so it must have been my charm and dashing good looks (or list was purposefully over priced so they could let me think I was getting a discount).

Worth what, £150,000 now so £74,000 in depreciation. Plus say 6 sets of tyres at £1000 a pop, £1500 in maintenance, £3500 PPF, £500 detailing, £300 for the stripes, £500 for the wheels doing gold, and £1200 servicing and ooh, say £10,000 of fuel at 25mpg and an average £ per litre guess over the last 8 years. That's £2.69 a mile. Plus whatever the insurance is (its part of my collection insurance so I have no idea per car but let's say £750). I'm guessing around £2.80 a mile over 8 years.

I'm ignoring trickle chargers, the cost of my garages / number of cars and me washing it there. £3.00 a mile probably sums it up.

I used to own a red 458 Italia.

It was a great car and cost me nothing bar a service and petrol.

After a year I sold it and got a blue perf. Kept it for a year, sold it and went back to a 458.

IMO the 458 sounded better, looks better and is easier to use. The perf was a great car for sure and being 4x4 was easy to look like a god but I’m happy to be back in the 458.

that blue look's lovely on such car, looks also good on some 718 Spyder I've seen for sale (with also great interior stitching/materials/carbon and so on.

so a 458 is that good, interesting, not many special colors for sale (in the lower price range), most red, some black.

Unfortunately the 458 was released during a time (2010-2015) where people seemed pretty boring with their colours, especially if you compare to stuff like 488 Pista, F8 and 812 for example.

As such the majority of 458's are red, then black with some white. Yellow is one of the best colours (I am bias) as I own a triple yellow but its rare you see really bright or adventurous colours on a 458.

It is rare I keep a car more than a year, had the 458 four years now, absolutely love it and many cars have come and gone whilst I've had it including a GT3 which to be honest though capable did not feel special at all compared to the 458, it has also been trouble free and relatively low running cost. smile

Why the f could I possibly need pollen filters in a Spyder?
That made me laugh.
Me too.
How much is a Lambo pollen filter fully fitted?

I wanted tdf blue or grigio silverstone, ended up buying a grigio silverstone car with nero daytona roof from factory (not the usual solid black).

Not a super bright colour but if you want something that's not black or red its a stunning metallic grey.

My absolute favourite colour is Blu Pozzi, mega rare, although I think there is someone on here with a 458 in that colour..

Mine is Grigio Silverstone, As is my 430, I love it. Much more subtle and a lovely colour.

Having said that the 458 has already attracted way more attention than the 430 and it’s only been a few weeks. So maybe not that subtle after all hehe

I’ve had a Huracan since new in 2019 (Performante Spyder), never missed a beat in 3 years, not so much as a flat battery or mystery warning light. Only thing that went wrong was the cup holder that got stuck in the dashboard. Can’t speak for the 458 but I don’t know any other Huracan owners that have suffered with reliability. Just had first major service and whilst VERY EXPENSIVE there were no issues outside of standard service items. Although I have a general problem with changing “pollen filters”.
I have had my Huracan since new in 2017 and my only issue (and only claim under the warranty) has also been a stuck cupholder. I decided not to extend my warranty when it expired earlier this year after 5 years. I think I was given the option to purchase a further 2 years. Time will tell whether that was a smart decision or not but so far it is proving to be.
