    Default Ferrari 458 Buyers Guide

    Hi All

    Just wanted to let you know I have created a Ferrari 458 Buyers Guide. Its fairly long (4.5k words!) and covers as much as I could think to cover.

    Let me know what you guys think, and also if there are any factual errors just PM me.

    Looking to do more of these if you find it useful.

    Thanks.

    Thatís probably the part of the buyers guide I should have written. How to persuade the bank manager and other half to let you buy a Ferrari!

    Think itís clear and well written, Mod. Seems to cover most things without being overly long, Iíd say it strikes the right balance

    Nice article. A what to look for section would have been nice as there are a few (not many compared to other models) well documented common issues with the 458 (transmission actuators, shocks leaks etc...)

    Iím definitely looking to expand on the issues. But due to other articles it means it might not be added for a week.

    With regards to the comparison to other models, it was actually on my original contents which I then removed. I reached over 4,500 words and decided I need to stop writing or I will never publish it. Plus I could probably write at least 2k words just in a comparison article. Might be better as a separate article rather than being lost in this one.
