New 2008 F430 Spider owner

Hello all, i have been checking out this site and find the information being passed along is very helpful. Being a first time Ferrari owner and only have driven my car a 100 miles (621 total), this Sunday i noticed a red liquid on my garage floor under the passengers side rear. It looks like powersteering fluid but to be sure... it is going to be sent in for servicing. Has anyone had a similiar problem?

Thanks

I assume your car has the famed F1 transmission. A few people have had various similar experiences. Hopefully it just got warm and pushed some excess fluid out, or a fitting is't sealing properly.

The heart of the hydraulic resides in that area of the car, so it could be a number of different things.

I think colonel had a similiar problem with his F430. He had to get the lines changed or something like that. I'll look for the thread.

+1, sounds very similar to the issue the Colonel had.
