    Had exactly the same problem with mine years ago!
    It was a simple fix of the linkage adjustment, was a million times better after!!
    Great CAR, enjoy...

    My 430 manual was difficult to select 2nd when cold, but it always went in. However, I now have an F1. Miss the manual sometimes.

    Default difficulty selecting 2nd

    I drove a 430 with an extremely resistant last week.. the dealer told me there was an "art" to selectig it.. the clutch in the one i drove was only one month old.

    perhaps some smaller issues as others have posted above.

    lovely car.. congrats .

    Ended up being the plastic bush at the bottom of the gear selector, also ended up needing the track rod ends and suspension bushed replaced. Once fixed the gear change is truly awesome even when the car is cold - all costs covered by the original dealer who have been fantastic.

    I had a Boxster S before, which I still own, and having taken the F430 down to Barcelona and back for the F1 I thought someone had replaced the engine, clutch, steering and gearbox in the Boxster with a Fiesta! The attention the car got in Spain/France was incredible.

    I have never experienced such a difference between two cars, even now when driving the Boxster I hugely underestimate the brakes in the first 30 seconds!

    Does anyone know if you can get an iPod connection fitted to the BE 6112? I pulled the radio out and there doens't seem to be any aux connection?

    definitely get the gearbox sorted.

    The haze of new ownership (just like in a relationship) tends to mask things that later and deep down inside you know will drive you nuts. Having the new car gone for a time will be like hell but worth it in the long run.

    Nice looking car

    I'm in the market for a 430 myself right now as prices look good
