Welcome to Ferrari Life. The 08s are a good choice because there were upgrades to the Motronic ECUs and the CCM brakes became standard. CTEK battery maintainer is also standard with a connector in the trunk for easy hook-up. 599 is just about as quick as a ZR1 Corvette, especially in the higher speed ranges, and has proven to be very reliable. Sharing a new aluminum chassis with the 612 and a mildly detuned Enzo engine, the 599 also has a modern, up to date interior fitted to a very high standard. At current prices, 599s are a bargain for what you get at less than half MSRP. Odds of running up against a faster car are virtually zilch.
If you go to ferraridatabase.com, you can download a 599 owners manual and read up on all the features.

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