I don't know if that is the case in Europe. I don't think that it has to do with reliabiltiy issues, just rarity. I think as many as 95% of 430 buyers order the F1 transmission, thereby making the six speed that much less attainable.

A friend of mine has a F1 430. He swears by it. He said that it is leaps and bounds better than the tranny in his 360. He can't really attest to it's reliability since almost all F car owners keep their annual mileage under 1500.

That is truely a rich mans car. Even if you could afford one you can't drive it so you still end up buying another hot car that you can drive and a daily driver to boot. So, Ferrari's are usually at least three deep.
