We can't say unless we have the same type of problem. I never did. perhaps it's the clutch that has worn out. The 1999 car should have had a cam belt change. Normally a good owner would change the clutch as well. Did you check whether this was done to your car before you bought it.

ferrari workshop replied

the techincian told me the idle is running low and they are checking the computer now. The car can start after it towed back to workshop......so they assume it's not the problem on the clutch nor the cam belt. The cam belt will replace a new one on 2005 June.

thank you

Keep us updated, I'd like to know what the problem ends up being. Hope it is all sorted out soon. I'm sorry your first few weeks of Ferrari ownership haven't been behind the wheel as much as you'd like.
