Oil Consumption

Maybe I'm just a worried new Ferrari owner, but: I bought a used 2010 California that had about 3,500 miles on it. I've put 2,500 on it since I bought it (not particularly vigorous driving). The manual indicates that under normal operation it will use 1 quart of oil about every 600 miles. So far, by my reading, the dipstick hasn't moved at all. Is this normal for new Ferraris in folks' experience? I'm worried that I'm reading the level on the dipstick wrong.

Welcome to Ferrari Life. That liter/1000 kms oil consumption figure is just a cover your rear end number from Ferrari. Most late Ferraris have low consumption numbers and do not need oil added between annual services. At least mine has not.

So feel fortunate yours is working like she should.
