    I've been wondering how often do you drive your ferrari and after how many miles do you have to service it.

    Average 50miles a week, if i have done it on one go, than more.
    Sometimes i just get her out to washers, the farthest possible :)
    Looks like she's gonna get driven even less cause of the winter.

    2 or 3 times a week in good weather (spring, summer, fall). Usually 100 to 200 miles each time.

    In the winter I go whenever I can. Usually just before or after skiing. Probably averages once every week or two. ;)

    twice a month.

    When I first bought it, it was once a week, take it to the track once every other month. Gave me such a rush, I bought a race car. Figured if I hurt the Ferrari one incident would pay for the race car. Now I just drive the Ferrari to club events.

    Jeez, when I had my 308qv, I bought it with 40,000 miles,
    sold it with 75,000, 3 1/2 year span. Use to drive it all weekend long, and sometimes
    during the week if I had a rough day at work.

    Between 50 and 100 miles every weekend (weather permitting). Occasional longer trips (twice a year or so). About 4500 - 5000 miles per year. It's nice to live in a place where I can enjoy it year-round (more so this time of year as it has no A/C).

    The roads are dry 90% of the time. Better to go in the morning before the snow on the shoulders melts and runs across the road. Then the car gets wet and is a b!tch to clean even with hot (warm) water which I have in the garage. ;)

    1000 miles per month. Its a daily driver. Its a car ( a great one) but not an icon you worship.

    You don't want to be on your death bed wishing you drove it more because your heirs will.

    4-6 times a month here (year round in San Diego).

    Every day it doesn't rain or snow. I service it when when I need to . Belts every 3-3 1/2 years and fluid (brake , antifreeze) changes every 2 years. Oil change once a year. Mine has been pretty good maintenance wise. I would say no more problems then my XKE or some of the older Corvette's I've had. It's a car and fun to drive so I want to enjoy it before I can't get in/out of it.

    Once or twice a month.

    :(

    They can be difficult to drive being so low (avoiding scraping the bottom constantly.. watching where you go).. plus all of the attention, staring and questions. Sheesh.
