hi from aus

hi there,

firstly thank you all for posting such a wealth of knowledge for me.

because of this I feel I'm about to try my luck with a 550.

I live in a rural place with long quiet highways(and a few kangaroos) that would suit a gt perfectly.

G'day marce, welcome to Flife and great to have another Aussie onboard. A 550 would be a fantastic choice of first Fcar to devour the big distances in comfort and style. Hopefully the country roads have improved since I was driving them many years ago. Tool of choice back then was a Land Cruiser or a Land Cruiser


Current Fcars: 360 Modena
Gone but not forgotten: 360 Spider, 575M, F430.
Other stuff: '71 Holden GTS Monaro, '80 BMW Alpina B9, '74 Porsche Targa, Caterham, MB CL500, Land Rover Discovery.

Marce- Just in case you have not found it, you can download owners manuals and workshop manuals for the 550 at ferraridatabase.com.

Present: 575M 135171
Past: Dino 246 GT 02984, 365 GTB/4 14009, 308 GTS 25125

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
