    Welcome Smiffy,
    Nah, nothing seems to happen round here. All the fun seems to be down south.
    Unless there's FOC stuff.

    Regards

    There is a small Ferrari group in Wales who organise runs occasionally, usually they go down to the Gower in the summer.

    My father has a 400i but has just bought a 456 GTA. There is also a couple of 360 Spyders, 348's, Dino and a few others.

    The last one they did was a run to MHT in Northleach for a look around the workshops which was good.

    The guy who runs it is from Bridgend, Leighton someone? who has a yellow 348 Spyder.

    I will get his details and post them up for you.

    Yeah, Ive heard that the guy that runs the club drives a 348 Spyder, I was chatting to his mate who owns a 355 GTB. There are a few Fcars around south Wales, I know of 2 360 spyders & I saw a Giallo 550M outside Merlin Cambria Land Rover & also a 575M on the BP petrol station on Hadfield Road.

    Just had a look at your profile. I take it you are with White Dove?

    I drive an azure blue S1 at the moment and often go to have a look at what cars you have in the showroom.

    Got any 111R demonstrators in yet?

    Drove 360 last week at Lovetts in Swindon. Nothing can compare with that. Settled on the price with the salesman, the manager then sent a message through and up't the agreed amount by £500 as he said there were other interested parties!. I walked. The car's still on Lovetts site, silver manual.
    Long may it stay there.

    That's the sort of dirty trick you expect from a second hand car dealer.
    But not a Ferrari dealer, especially a franchised one.

    I think you're absolutely right to walk away from such disgusting behavior.

    And if by some chance he crawls back to you at some stage then drop the price by £500 to him.

    Surely this is not the way to build customer relationships.

    PR story, any dealer can say they sold 4 cars ( deposits ). I've been in and they are desperate for 360's.

    Ryan Giggs turned up on Tuesday with Robbie Savage in his Arnage Turbo and ordered a 575 Maranello. I don't suppose he'll get as much pleasure from it as I do from my Mondial T!
