    Hi everyone, so I ended up pulling the trigger. A month or so ago I posted a thread seeking some insight from other's. I took everyones sentiment's into consideration and found one to my liking. It's a 2017 with 1200 miles. I parted with my 458 and GT3...the GT3 will be sorely missed.

    Awaiting wheels and exhaust mods....

    Just out of curiosity, I'm experiencing an engine whine that matches RPM. Is this an intrinsic issue of the car or should I bring it to the dealer? It's not very loud, it's faint...

    Love the spec. I rented one in Las Vegas and drove to the Hoover Dam and the national park out there. Was an epic drive. Fantastic car

    Could be...It can be heard inside or outside. Or it just could be how F12's are. I haven't experienced another F12

    Congrats and gorgeous car. The GT3 although a great car will be long forgotten sooner than you think....

    Small world — I called that very dealer yesterday at 5:45pm to see if this grigio titano F12 was available. Spoke to a Greg who said it is. Told him I’ll see him tomorrow. Drove from Boston (5 hours) today, waited, to be told the car is no where to be seen - since it was sold couple days ago. Was planning to leave a deposit, pay and pick up on Monday. The Greg in question was delivering a Maserati and although our paths crossed, he didn’t say hi or apologize. Calvin the GM did, invited for diner (had to pass) and showed us other cars of interest. It wasn’t all a waste.

    Congratulations Pazzo009. Enjoy it in the best of health. I saw a white GT3RS upstairs; might have been yours.

    Hi, thank you very much.

    That really sucks, I would have been irate. I luckily did not deal with Greg, but based on what you're saying I doubt he will excel in that line of work. Calvin however was professional and a gentleman. I sincerely hope you find the right car for you. If you're not already aware, CarGurus is a good site that aggregates a lot more listings.

    The white GT3RS was not mine. However if you went upstairs, I assume you stood in awe of the matte white TDF.

    Hi, thank you also.... Okay, I suppose I will have to bring it to a dealer. I took it out last night and that sound is definitely there. Even my wife noticed it when I pointed it out, so I'm not imagining things.

    I'm also feeling a slight vibration under aggressive acceleration. It seems like it's coming from the Universal joint going into the rear diff, or it's in the rear diff itself. Again, this could just be how the car is. I have nothing to compare it to.

    Other than that, it's such a beautiful car. It's a piece of art...fast art

    Hi. It’s all good. Congrats once again. Greg was indeed a gentleman. He saved the day and I would go back for other cars. The opaque white tdf was indeed a stunner. So was the masterfully specced 812 next to it.

    Congrats on the F12. Looks great!

    Re the whine, it is probably the oil cooler pump. It is more noticeable on some F12s than others.

    My F12 has a noisy one and after a bit of toing and frying with Ferrari they agreed to change it but said there was no guarantee the new pump would be any quieter. Fortunately for me it was.

    Congrats (late) !

    Right color. Right seats. Right wheels. Why change? If you’re selling the wheels lmk.

    Sorry about the noise. Agree with oil pump issue. Drive a couple and it varies by car. Mine does not make that noise.

    Still under warranty as it’s a 17?

    Good luck drive it well.
    More pictures. More pictures.

    Interesting what you are both saying. I will definitely mention it. I couldn't find any posts or information of this issue. But thank you for the insight.

    Thank you...I had ADV1's on my 458 and I loved them. They fit the F12 but unfortunately the offsets in the rear are different and I have to get 2 rears made. After I get them, I will powder coat them dark and install. You'll see my render and I assume you'll see why I want them on the F12.

    Yes it's a 17, under warranty.

    Are you sure that “whine” isn’t just the mechanical noise of gears and cams and such...it is a “noisy” engine right there just forward of the dash.
    Mine has always made a “mechanical sound.”

    Mine has the same whine. I attribute it to mechanical engine noise. I purchased the extended 2 year warranty from Ferrari and they literally took apart the entire engine to make sure everything was ok with multiple test drives before handing the keys over. I am sure it is fine but doesn’t hurt to ask the dealer to have a service technician check it out.

    Congrats and enjoy!

    The acceleration and noise is life changing!
