    Hello everyone,

    I have been a quiet reader over the past several months and I appreciate all that this site has offered in terms of your experiences with ownership. I finally made the jump this past week, selling my 02 C4S and purchasing as 98 550 as my first F car. Here are a few pics. Plenty more to come for sure. The car blows my mind. such a different world from my P car experiences.

    --Omar

    WOW! That's the PERFECT example of a Maranello! Beautiful.

    Congrats on the purchase and it looks like you bought it at FoSF which is always a good thing.

    Looking forward to hearing your impressions...

    Thus far I must say it is AMAZING. The sound of the tubi is absolutely glorious!!! Went for a gorgeous drive this weekend down US 1 from San Francisco to Carmel...the car just begs to be driven and there seems no end to the torque. Very happy with my purchase.

    26,300. Not too bad. I had looked at a couple different examples of the Maranello with much lower miles, but after what I had researched, it seemed I was better off with a well sorted out car. The 30.000 mile belt service was just done and the car seems good to go. I plan to truely drive the car so i am hoping the 550 is true to its history of being a great car.

    Thanks everyone. FoSF was great to deal with. Only thing I have left to sort out with the car at this point is that I only have 1 remote with the 550. (the black one). From all the threads I have seen, this could be a potential problem down the road unless I order a new set of three. Any thoughts?
