Newbie

Hi All,

I am excited to finally be a Ferrari owner, I bought a 2003 575M F1.

After 5 years of being told no by my EX wife, I divorced her and bought my car
Seriously I collect cars and for some odd reason she didn't want me to buy this car.
Life is to short, bills are paid, money in the bank, college funds for the kids are set aside... so it was time to find my car.

zffbv55a330134144 VIN



Beautiful Black "Nero", luxurious and pampered 2003 FERRARI 575M with the F1 transmission. This Ferrari has the black interior, with the black Ferrari factory Daytona seats, with black inserts and black stitching. Interior black leather Ferrari factory luggage rack, Ferrari factory modular Daytona wheels, Pilot tires are 60%, Yellow Ferrari factory calipers, Yellow Ferrari factory Scuderia fender shields. Tubi exhaust, 6 CD player, powers seats, passport with alarm, clear fender and skirt shields, Ferrari Shield trunk mat. 15k service completed, with all books, records and tools. Elegant and fast and drives even better than it looks! Always garaged with just over 12,500 miles.

Welcome to FLife

Beautiful 575

You came to the right place - any interior pictures?

Car looks very familiar - was it bought in Missouri?

Nic- Welcome to Ferrari Life. Beautiful 575M with all the nice options. Your car is not in my database, but if you pass me the Assembly Number (in front of the engine), I will add her. Here is the latest list plus a listing of updates done to the 575M during production.

If you have not found it, there is a 575M technical thread that is a sticky.

Must say I admire you; I did the opposite in '75. Sold a mint E type because the soon-to-be wife #1 gave me the "it's me or the Jag" ultimatum. Being young, dumb, etc. I chose her - big mistake.

Divorcing her cost me a bundle a few years later, while the E type would have been worth 20x what I had in it.

Wife #2 has made only one snide remark in 24 years about the cost of the car hobby, and after I told her that cars are cheaper than mistresses, she's never made another bad remark about them!

BTW, welcome to the Life

'99 550, Rosso Corsa / Nero, S/N:114654, Assy: 31836, Engine: 52084

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.

Nic- Congratulations. Beautiful car. I will update the database tomorrow.

Wife and I just took ours out for a spin this afternoon. Ran like a train, and yours will, too.
