Ron- Welcome and look forward to seeing photos. Your car is a very early 575M, but I do not have that serial number on the factory list of early US 575M cars. You sure it is 127145? If so, it would be the 16th 575M imported to the US.

I recall one that was advertised about 6 months ago - black looks great on the 575.

Hi Taz the full vin # is zffbv55a520127145, I didnt recieve the car as of yet (the trailer is picking it up on thursday from Vince Hill Auto) so i dont know the assembly # . Your posts over the last year where a major influnce on my choice to upgrade my budget from a 550 to a 575 due to maintaince costs as well as parts prices and avability not to metion Im 6 foot 2 and didnt fit that well in my brotherinlaws f430 unless the top was down.Im not completely sure of all the options other than the obvious daytona power seats and shelf navi and F1 trans. Im not a fan of buying the first model year of anything but the deal was to good to wait on. Thanks for the warm welcome FL and I will update with some photos asap

Ron- Will have to add her to the early US Ferari list. Ferrari listed 127143 and 127147, but not 127145, so they must have omitted a few from the list. Looking forward to the photographs and know you will be happy with the car. About the only difference between your car and my early 04 is the straight center pipes and different rear shocks, plus a couple of ECU changes, as you can see from this list.
