    I have owned a Ferrari 430 for 3 years and I am in the process of purchasing a 570 GT. I can't tell whether the front bumper is lower than that of the 430. It seems the overhang is shorter than the Ferrari and I have no problems with speed bumps. Is it an issue with the 570? The one I am buying has the front axle lift. It would be nice not to have to use it all of the time. Thanks.

    I went from a 430 to 570, it is night and day on scraping meaning I rarely scrape anything and I rarely use my lift. The 430 was horrible at destroying the front end.

    I don't have a problem with my 430 on speed bumps and exiting and entering driveways just needs to be done on a slant. I installed the Fabspeed
    under-bumper protection and that seems to work very well.

    Nose was just a bit to long, as mentioned you had to be careful going up speed bumps or driveways at an angle, most of the 430 never came with a front end lift as that would of helped tremendously, I still loved the car though ;).

    I'm somewhat surprised they never tried to correct it. But yeah hard not to love what is probably going to be a future classic (IMO):cool:
