Marce- Tech is full of it. Have had my F1 575M for nearly 6 years and absolutely no problems with the F1 system, which is ideally suited to a high torque V12. As long as the F1 fluid is changed regularly, about every three years, or as soon as you get it. Expect a long trouble-free life from the F1 system.
3 hours? The nearest dealer to me is 8 hours away. My local techs have no trouble maintaining her. Bought them a 575M workshop manual and they were set. With no SD2, we swap half the F1 fluid at every annual change. If I had a dealer with an SD2 three hours away, I would drive there every 3 years and have the F1 system flushed, filled and bled.

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