Boxer- Have not heard about any electrical issues except not being driven enough so the battery goes flat. The problem Doug is referring to is noisy lifters. Not really an issue and they are the same design lifters (different part number) fitted to the Maranellos and 612s. No complaints from the Maranello owners since there is plenty of noise coming from the engine compartment, but 612 and 599 owners complained. Ferrari solution was snake oil to quiet the lifters when the car is first started. Noise goes away as car warms and lifters fill and pump up.

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