60,000kms of memories

I picked up my blue beauty today from a well-deserved spa treatment at the Ferrari Wellness Centre of ForzaService, in Oss Holland.

I then noticed that it was exactly 60,000kms ago that I picked her up from the same spot, on the 20th of June 2007. The memories we have created together.... What a wonderful ownership experience has it been. Long may it continue.

The pic is from that first day, 60,000kms ago. She was my first, and will be my last.

Congratulations Onno!

Thank you for sharing the 550 passion with so many, myself included. Full respect for enjoying the magnificent nightbluebird the way she was meant to be driven, far and fast!

Congrats Onno, what a great milestone.
I hope to emulate that in my Spider.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

Wellness Center for Ferraris; I love it!
Perhaps that's a service we should offer....

Regardless, congrats Onno on the ownership experience thus far. We just love our 550, but haven't had the opportunity to travel the distances that you have. We're just coming into some of the best driving season of the year; Fall in New England!

Onno- Good show. Sounds like we both have the same goal: wear out a Maranello. Then rebuild it and wear it out again. You have a headstart at 60,000 kms (~37,000 miles) plus whatever she had originally.

There is still a "ForzaService" sticker under the 308 GTB badge on my car! I can tell they did a fantastic job on maintaining it at its very best. The car left NL one year ago and carbs are still perfectly tuned, so I am sure your 550 loved her time there! ;-)
