I'm very pleased to become a part of this group finally. I've been getting acquainted with 550's for nearly three years, looking in earnest for one year, and just purchased this one from Ferrari of Washington earlier this week:
Chassis number: 114654
Ferrari colour: Rosso Corsa
Interior colour: Nero
Here's a stock dealer photo of the car on the lot:
(BTW, the stain under the car, was NOT from mine :thumbsup
Reminds me I never did show my car here, even if it is overexposed elsewhere. Rosso Corsa with Charcoal and red stitching interior 04 575M. Limited options including FHP, see build sheet, but now has Superamerica CF instrument panel with yellow tach, HGTC exhaust, and Novitec NF2s (9" F, 12.5" R) and Mov'It CER ceramic brakes. Have some more CF to repair and install (seat trim) and will eventually add a leather shelf. OEM CF sills and Carbonio Challenge paddles are installed, too.
This was the car Ankur was interested in but opted for a 599 in the end.
Perry Motors sold it for 102K now its on Ebay being listed by Domani..I dont understand why dealers buy from other dealers and then resell..I dont think there is that much more money in the car..only time will tell.
Happy to say I am new to this forum today. My vehicle info as follows:
S# 130070 (early USA model)

Dominic- Affirmative, I went through the service records for Ankur, but he did get a Ferrari.
Rick- Welcome. I see Andrew already has you signed up as an owner. Good to hear from you again and hope you enjoy it here. Start a thread in the Member Introductions section, which actually gets used here quite a bit.
Thanks for the welcome. Nice to finally read your posts again. Always informative and on the mark. No one provided more relevant material than you in that other virtual world. You played a large part in the successful upgrades I have made to my car thus far. More to come.
Thank you as well. Car is currently in Valley Forge for the summer. I had planned on leaving it in Naples but missed it so much I flew down in early June and drove it back to PA over a 5 day period. I stopped to see friends and play golf along the way taking many fine non-interstate roads quite frequently. They were the best 5 days of driving I have ever eperienced. I enjoyed it so much I am planning on driving it back down in October over a 5 to 7 day period. This after I swore I would never drive from PA to FL again after the last time back in 2005. Of course, then, I wasn't driving the proper (or any) Ferrari for that type of road trip.
As far as local events in PA I have only attended the C & C West Chester event twice. I am considering going to the Ferrari Fall Festival in Florham Park, NJ on Sept. 18th.
