The SF style key is our newest style key ...
introduced in October 2022. The production and labor costs increased dramatically since the introduction of our first cavallino
keys. And, regrettably, we had to increase the price of the SF key to
cover those costs.
Recently, we have been able to make some changes that have allowed us to reduce the cost of the SF keys. We are passing these savings on to our customers, however, we have not compromised the quality of the keys.

A single-sided key has the cuts located on a single side. These
keys can only be inserted into the lock cylinder one way.
Single-sided keys were the norm for automobiles up till about 1980.
They are still the norm for the majority of keys such as house keys.
Double-sided (or sometimes called symmetrical-cut) keys have cuts on both sides. These keys can be inserted into the lock cylinder in either orientation. Symmetrical cut keys are the norm for automobiles today ... although many have internal cuts verses external cuts.
Minor scratches can be removed from the acrylic key
head using a polish designed for plastics. Maguires makes a
PlastX, a gel formula that can be used on acrylic resin.
Another line of products that is made specifically for acrylics is
Plastic Polish ... a three-step system for removing scratches with a final step to clean and shine.
Heavier scratches can be removed by using wet sandpaper. Use plenty of water and start with a grit course enough (e.g., 800 or 1000 grit) to remove the scratch and then use progressively finer grit until you work up to a 3000 grit (or finer) sandpaper. Then remove any glaze using plastic polish. (NOTE: for better results, rub in one direction only)
Although the key profile is such that it will fit the F430 and unlock the ignition, the key does not contain the necessary electronics to disable the immobilizer. The keys we offer are only suitable for vehicles without an immobilizer or vehicles with the immobilizer separate from the key itself ... for example, the Ferrari 360 has an immobilizer with a remote fob that is separate from the key itself.
Ferrari cut over from single-sided keys to double-sided keys in 1989. Generally, models that started in 1989 use the double-sided keys and car models that ended in 1988 use single-sided keys. During the transition year, it is not certain which key may have been utilized. See the information immediately below for more information.
