"Salam" from a new member

In trying to find a place to settle somewhere in the world, I stumbled upon Wimbledon... have been loving it since!
I owned a Grigio Silverstone Scaglietti for a few years and then swapped it to 458 after testing it at Fiorano.
Here is some photos of the 458...

Salam!

Sharp eye, Barry! A former PI (private investigator)?
It was my 612... a few days before the buyer collected the car and shipped it to Marrakesch...

Thought so. I shoulda guessed!

Very nice. How do you find the change from 612 to 458. Two very different Ferraris!!

I am not very technical, but the 458 has such a good road grip and the dual clutch technology is so superior. The 612 is a very good sporty salon, but moving too much on speed and corners.

Good to hear.

I'll be taking a black mid-engined V8 Ferrari too. Guessing you might win the drag race though...

welcome.

A black ferrari 458 and yellow calipers is my favourite combo, very nice bottom photo as well... could you possibly take a photo the same angle of my avatar (not mine)...

I've always wanted to see a black 458 in person, but I've only ever seen one at night .

Glad to be here, guys, and Barry.... it is meant to be a tour, no? Look forward to meeting you on the trip... I still have to try out the 'launch' button on my own car... tried it at Fiorano on Ferrari's car and really felt the G-force.

Will, here are some front and rear iPhone photos... sorry it was taken a while ago when London was sunny and blue sky (and it really was a while ago since we have the proper sun)

Jeroen, dank je well en zie je op de FLED trek!
