The reason I asked is i first looked at a DB 9,because a very good friend from the UK was pushing me. I like understated, but not in cars. THe BD9 was a tight fit and the Ferrari was a dream car. Having a car in the shop is not fun. The newness of the 430 and the fact that it has timing chains versus the belt thing led to my decision. Regardless of miles, you never know. Two years ago, my car had 3300 seemed perfect anddrove excellent until about two months ago. It is still pristine, has 6300, and I just paid $9500 for misc service stuff, actuator work solenoids, service etc. So, add the mid term oil change and filters, $380, and the new tires I am ordering and my upkeep will be $10,400 for two years, 3000 miles. However, it should be perfect for sometime. Just be prepared. I would sell the cycle, save, save more, and buy the best Ferrari you can possibly get. BTW, i was always astick shift guy. After the F 1, never again. The F1 is more fun and it is today's Ferrari.
