    In all honesty, Ferrari gearboxes are complete rubbish. I have tried the f1 gearboxes on every model since the 575M and the same result, they don't shift when you want, they're jerky and slow, especially the 599. This was a quite upsetting to me, so I got rid of the 599 and traded it in for an lp640 with 1200 miles on it. I'm much happier, the gears change faster and when you WANT!!!. I would never buy a Ferrari again for that reason. And the best thing of all, in the lambo I get so many people looking at me, much more than in the Ferrari, you get noticed so much more.

    Not to mention the fact that Lamborghini buys from Magnetti Marelli the same F1 system developed and used by Ferrari.

    Nice way to introduce yourself to a FERRARI community!

    Your statement claiming "I have tried the f1 gearboxes on every model since the 575M and the same result, they don't shift when you want, they're jerky and slow, especially the 599." seems like.....how should I say it......RUBBISH!

    Why in the hell would you buy a 599 in the first place! So, when you bought the 599 you liked it and then it suddenly didn't shift well enough??
    Sounds like a 13yr old boy lurking to me.

    I usually don't bother posting a response to such utter bull but you came to our house and talked smack which is not cool at all. Go around being seen in your Lambo
    while I out-shift your imaginary e-gear equipped Lambo in my 430!

    Perhaps you should try to be a bit more dainty with your index finger?

    Also, Don't you hate it when the plastic around the window catches your cuticles? Truth be told, the scissor door ones provide better access. How are your "Vroom Vroom" sound effects coming, have you done a you tube? :)

    Edit* And yeah after comments like this, you might find yourself on a slippery slope! ;)

    Personally I've come to like paddle shifters on modern cars.

    Ape- Cannot take credit. Research was done by a modest consultant in the private threads. For all I know, he may be the richest 17 year old around.

    Hey there, the hole idea behind making that ludicrous and non-nonsensical statement was to provoke what myself and many others find a sad aspect in this forum; that so many Ferrari Chatters actually have the time and willingness to reply to an obscure post like that, that is obviously utter nonsense. Forgive me if I'm being a tiny bit tautological, but I really cant stand how some here are so desperate, evidently so when "tazandjan" actually bothered to search my user name...In essence, yes the replies were witty and smart, but by the same token they were somewhat sad, well at least to me anyway.

    try again by spelling "whole" right. Proper vocabulary helps when your trying to prove your bullsh*t.

    John- Again, not me. Go look in the Silver section and you will see who should get credit.
