    Hello,I am going to buy a 07 or 08 599 and want to know your thoughts if they can be a daily driver and what advice you can give me.I plan on putting 10000-15000+miles a year on the car and I am wondering if I can have mechanical troubles or other issues with the car.I know this sounds crazy to most Ferrari guys but I want to enjoy the car everyday.Any advice would be greatly appreciated.Thanks,Jim

    YES, they are brilliant daily drivers. I drove my F430 daily for two years and loved every minute of it. My 599 arrives in about 3 weeks and it will be my daily driver.
    Go for it!

    I just picked up an 08 599 and I think you could easily drive this car every day. It's big, but the steering is very nimble. Hopefully, you have a dedicated parking spot as I would be concerned with other people parking too close and putting door dings in your paint. This car gets lots of attention.

    Enjoy.

    Yup, mine's used as a daily driver and I think quite a fair number of fchatters also use theirs as daily drivers.

    I have driven the Aston Martin DBS, the Lambo Gallardo and others and its surprising how easy the 599 as a daily driver is. Easier than the 430 for sure. Quiet on the highway, comfortable. And I have a manual!
