    Hi everyone should be joining the elite group of Ferrari owners this time tomorrow fingers crossed. Purchased a nice 550 and just waiting for the major service to be completed by stratstone. They said it would take a week and it went in on Monday.

    also got a Tubi exhaust arriving today ready for fitting on Saturday morning :)

    Regards
    Mark

    Hi Mark
    Welcome to fchat and congrats on your purchase. The 550s a superb car (we have one) and sounds superb with a tubi. What colour combo are you having?

    its in grey (same as the one in bad boys 2) with cream interior. Looks fantastic.

    Finding it hard to get some work done, thinking of nothing but collecting the car.

    Like a little boy on christmas eve :)

    At the moment I regularly stand at traffic lights admiring my car with the bonnet up. Passers-by also seem to smile.
