First review...

Last year during Christmas I got the normal Ferrari 430, and just a few days later, I got this one, without even knowing it was out. My little cousin ran off with the box and when I got the box back, there was a hole in the box and some of the bags open. So I'm not quite sure what the finished product would look like. I was missing most of the parts from the engine Crying or Very sad . I modified mine slightly and put the two colors together: LINK

Colors: 9/10 Only two colors for the whole set, wish there was more.
Parts: 10/10 Great parts, and you get a bundle of red and yellow 1x1 cheese slopes.
Mini-figs: 0/10 Didn't come with any. Good.
Stickers: 7/10 I can see why this set had them, but they're a pain to get off.
Attention to Details: 9/10 Opening trunk, opening hood, good cabin.

35/50 Great set, get it now before it's gone. Especially if you have the normal one.

Remember, this is my first review.

Here is my review for the yellow car. Please excuse the dust.

Parts: 8/10 there is a nice assorment as well as extra parts from the car you don't build.
Minifigs: N/A
Colors: 10/10 The colors are almost identical to the real car.
Detail: 9/10 It's very close to the actual car.
Playability: 7/10 it's pretty fun to "drive" around.
Price to parts: 7/10 It's pretty expensive but contains some nice parts nevertheless.
Stickers: 8/10 The stickers add a lot of detail.
Availability: 5/10 It's probably not very expensive on eBay, but I doubt that it's till in most stores.
Overall: 7/10 This is a nice set for collectors or Ferrari fans. It's nice to have a set with two building options and such detail.

Hey Goosi -- first off, welcome to FBTB. Second, you might wanna consider putting more thought and content into reviews. A list of unexplained numbers on an arbitrary scale is about as worthless as a review can get, and a lot of folks here will chew you out for wasting space, especially when you dig up a year-old thread like this one! It's a lot more useful to everyone, and makes you look a lot more thoughtful and intelligent, if you take a bit of time to explain why you gave the set the ratings you did. And then -- here's the best part -- you don't even need the numbers anymore! Keep the interesting explanations and opinions, and ditch the numbers entirely.

I just wanted to start by doing a lot of reviews, but I'll do them more in-depth next time.
