    I'm pleased to say that after having Porsche totally cock up my 911 Turbo order I will be the proud owner of an 03 575M Maranello on Saturday :cool:

    Here's the spec :-

    1800 miles.
    Rosso Corsa/Crema leather/Rosso carpets.
    F1 Gearbox.
    Fiorano handling pack.
    Red calipers.
    CD Multi-changer.
    Scuderia Shields.

    Oh, I'm having a Tubi "tubes only" system fitted prior to delivery to replace the rear silencers which should make it sound a little more musical.

    I am excited :D

    RAY360M, filled in my profile now and yes it is my first Ferrari. Nearly bought a 360M last year but at 6ft7in I found there wasn't quite enough room behind the wheel. 575M is still cosy, but better :)

    I've ordered the system from manu, but as I wan't the car delivered with it fitted, he is shipping the system to Evans Halshaw.

    Love the V10 Touareg. It's the torque you see - I find it addictive :D

    So much more than a 4x4 with it's seductive combination of power, plush ride (air suspension), luxury and performance. Totally unique in my opinion.

    You can read the whole sorry episode here - http://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?t=83823&f=48&h=0

    Essentially, placed the order last July for October delivery, which became 1st March which became May. Only found out a few days before I was due to take delivery that the car hadn't even been made, nor would it for about 6 weeks. Appalling.

    Spie,

    Congratulations and Welcome,

    Post some pics as soon as you have them (I think it compulsory).;)

    I see from your profile you own an SR3 do you race it or is it just for track days?.
    How do you find it to drive?.

    I was down at Brands Hatch yesterday for the Radical Test Day and tested both the SR3 & new SR4.
    It was my first time in the Radical; What an amazing car.
    I guess I managed about 30 laps before I couldn't feel my arms any more.
    I think they are about the best cars I've ever driven ( apart from the JP1).

    I'm not sure if i'm going to buy one or not, definately not this season as i'm already obligated to another race series but maybe next.

    Good Luck

    Thanks for the welcome guys :)

    Don't worry about the pics, there will be plenty ;)

    SR3 is for trackday use only and is a simply awesome but of kit. Probably very similar to the JP1 overall although I haven't driven one. Mine is just about to have a substantial upgrade to the engine including a supercharger. Not going to go too silly because I don't want to loose reliability, but 250BHP at the rear wheels is the target.

    Wow,

    That's off the map.

    They had the Turbo'd version there yesterday.
    That's a serious bit of kit.
    It's the one that took the lap recaord at the Nurburgring recently.
    They wouldn't let me take it out though. Not really suprising I guess.

    Arrived this morning :)

    I've been driving it for most of the afternoon, so it's now quite dirty. I'll be taking some more pictures tomorrow weather permitting, and I'll try and take a video clip so that you can hear the beautiful Tubi sound, but for now these are just a few snaps taken as it arrived.

    Ladies and gentlemen, my Ferrari 575M Maranello :-

    Wow the car looks amazing. I used to think the 575 looked better in darker colours, but now I definately think it looks best in red. Enjoy and post some interior pics once its clean!
