    Hello FerrariChat Friends :)

    Total newbie here. I am a new proud 2014 458 Spider owner as of last week. Probably my only Ferrari as I can't imagine ever selling this magnificent machine. It will be a legacy that I leave to my favorite child or grandchild one day :). I've been drooling over these since I saw my first one in 2010. Ironically, Elon Musk paid for this (well appreciation in Tesla stock did). We have two Teslas which we love for day to day driving, but I NEED the sound of the 458 in my life and I will never tire of the mechanical music it creates. A few photos are attached from last weekend in Monaco. I immediately drove it there after I picked up the car in Switzerland. What better way to arrive in Monte Carlo for the first time than in the Ferrari I've dreamed of for years?

    Looking forward to learning about the joy the car can bring to me and my family and looking forward to learning from this community!

    Merci Viermals Tekaefixe! Es tut mir leid, mein Deutsch is nicht so gut. ;). Ich liebe neben Lausanne im Lavaux. I'll look into the link and the club as well. Thanks so much.

    t'es francais, toi? Ou quoi?

    Welcome to the group, but most importantly: welcome to ownership. It's a dream-come-true for many of us, as I've come to learn.
    Enjoy in bon sante, and don't ever stop sending those epic photos!
