First post here

Hello everybody,

Having been silent since my registration some months ago, it's time to introduce my car and myself,

I'm the happy owner of a 2002 575M F1 Blu Tour de France / Cuoio, bought in Italy past May with 28.000 km on the clock and a decent history, brought directly from Brescia to my home, near to Barcelona in Spain.

She was really mechanically and aesthetically very good, just some very little dents that have been easily solved, apart from the chronic sticky buttons problem, of course. Since the collection, I`ve done 5.000 km including almost 2.000 km to come back home at pick up, a memorable trip across Italy and France alternating at the wheel with my oldest son, where we've got the opportunity to check the car in hard rain among the crazy Autostrada traffic during half a day. Not so bad for the first contact.

Car is completely original except exhaust, we've deleted the central muffler and opened the rear valves to improve the sound, but although we've got some gain in the loud, it's still too much discrete for our tastes. For the near future, our plans are to improve car's handling installing the FHP parts, if we can find out them at a decent price, and repair the sticky parts sending them to StickyNoMore.

This is my first F-car, and for sure, not the last one. I`ve to admit that, despite being a long time Porsche fan with some of them on the garage, Ferrari is something very special, and any true car lover must own at least one on his life if he can.

A couple of car's pictures:





Regards.

Absolutely stunning!
Best posting of 2014 this far.

The Porsches are wonderful cars, but this Ferrari is just over the top.

You are right that it won't be your last.
Enjoy and welcome to the Life!
