sooner then promised here are my pics of my 2005 Ferrari. My nephews are in one or two of the pics so sorry about that. I put custom 20 inch rims up front and 21 inch rims in the back. In person, i've gotten many good comments about my rims, but I would like to know what you guys think. Thanks.

No one has ever accused me of being the most discriminating tifosi, but a quick point of confusion: where's the Spider (with an 'i', not a 'y'.) You posted pictures of a Modena, not a Spider.

The rims aren't bad...but the 21s in the back are a bit excessive.

The 360 Modena is one of my favourite Ferraris although I have to say I don't like those big wheels.

Also, F1 gearbox... :/

Whats wrong with the paddle shifters? If I had the money I would try them. Being able to brake with your left foot could be funny.

The F1's supposed to be great on a track but bleh on the street. The only traditional (i.e. non-DSG) paddle shifter I've ever sampled was the SMT in the Mk3 Toyota MR2 Spyder, which was absolutely TERRIBLE. Even if the F1 gearbox was three times as good I can imagine missing a proper manual.

i will admitt i've driven my friends ferrari 355 spider and the manual transmission was a huge thrill. But i will say the F1 gearbox in this ferrari is incredible as well. Sure manual is probably the best way to go, but i've gotten the hang of driving with the paddle shifters and believe me their awesome as well.

The 21's on the back screw up the stance of the 360, but the design of the wheels are very nice.

I still think a manual is a much more engaging experience, but Paddle-shifters are becoming quiet good now. Shame that most modern sports cars seem to lack a manual option (e.g. Maserati Gran Turismo)

Yea i agree...i was shocked to hear that less than 10% of the 599 GTB that are going to be made are manual.

I heard its a similar situation with the murcielago and gallardo as well.

Such a shame that most people don't experience the satisfaction of being able to control the clutch and gears manually.

The extra shame with the Lambo SMGs is that they eat clutches in under 10,000 miles...I dunno if it's the same story with the F1 gearbox or not...

From what I've read, the BMW SMGs were the only "paddle shifts" that were worth having over the manual, since they shift much faster anyway. However, I've also read that Audi's DSG is probably the smoothest, but only in certain applications. I've only had the opportunity to sample automatics with a manual mode, of which, the 350Z was disappointing, the old shape SLK was better than expected, and the current BMW 530i was amusing. The Murano and Lexus RX were a joke...

I've been having to warm up to the whole tiptronic idea, as I'm considering replacing the 3, with the new Lexus IS300 (yes, it's 300 here)...and it's only available with an auto.

The DSG's only weird thing is when you boot it in automatic mode and it drops 2 or 3 gears at a time, which causes it to sorta "freewheel" with the clutch disengaged for a split second as it swaps the appropriate cogs. Otherwise it's amazing, and I'd considering it 95% of a manual transmission.

When it comes to automated manuals I've expericed, the 5-speed Tiptronic in my last GTI was pretty clunky in manual mode (basically good for holding gears, not for performance driving) but, when left to its own devices in drive, would switch to a surprisingly aggressive sport mode when you were on the loudpedal a lot, and it would aggressively downshift under braking and hold gears under acceleration a lot...very impressive. My friend's Audi A4 3.0 with the CVT had a much more responsive manual mode, let down only by exceptionally small shift buttons on the steering wheel.
