Goodbye 612, hello F430B redux...
Or to keep with the spate of Latin quotes: Alea iacta est.
Simply couldn't abide by the electronical issues with the 612: would not start twice, had phantom seat heater readings about every other drive, and the last straw was a 'transmission failure' light that came on during a drive.
My dealer was kind enough to make an excellent trade for a mint '06 F430B F1 with 5,700 miles - Nero over cuoio Daytonas with nero inserts. Competition wheels, rossa calipers, with brand new Bridgestones. Some carbon fiber accents. All books and records. Tubi. No stories or excuses.
Daughters have failed to send me the photos they took, but after golf today, I will make sure to bug them so that I can post a few. And while I learned to love and appreciate the idea of the front/mid V-12, I have no qualms about returning to the rear/mid V-8 realm...
