    Hi there!

    I've been reading this forum for some time now and thought it would be nice to register. I live I Holland myself and actually I'm quite surprised how many dutch members are on this board. I hardly ever spot Ferrari's over here, very occasionally a 355 or a 328. I live on the eastern side of Holland myself, very close to Ferrari dealer Munsterhuis so at least I can always have a look at those beauty's. Unfortunately I'm not able to afford a Ferrari myself at this time, hopefully in a few years time I can realize my dream and buy one. I've always been fond of italian cars and I'm happy to say my parents have been driving italian cars for the last 25 years :)

    Currently I drive a Coupe Fiat 20v turbo myself, which is the nearest I can get to a Ferrari within a reasonable budget (got some pictures on http://members.home.nl/jslender/index.html for the ones who are interested). Hope to spot some of you in real life sometime!

    Hi Jurgen,

    You are most welcome on board the good ship F-Chat Europe! You have an Italian car and aspire to a Ferrari, so you're among friends here! :)

    Hey - My growth was simple...Fiat, Alfa Romeo and then I got a 328. So hang in there and be patient!

    Cheers from Pretoria, South Africa.

    I'm live in Hengelo, so it's actually pretty close to Munsterhuis. Funny you mentioned that you shouldn't buy there. I always thought this was a proper Ferrari dealer, afterall it's got quite a lot of them and I always loved the F40's he got there.

    I love my coupe for the time being though, the 5 cylinder sounds very nice (although no comparison with Ferrari 8 or 12 cylinders that's for sure!) and the car is about as quick as a 328 (but doesn't take corners as nicely).

    I live in Hengelo close to Munsterhuis, but also close to Snellers. I'm sure Jurgen jou know Sneller too. I'm the happy owner of a Ferrari Mondial (a white one).

    Yes, I do know Snellers as well (in fact that's only about 1,5km's from my house). But I always though that was the dodgy dealer that should be avaoided and Munsterhuis was the proper one :)
    I don't think I've ever seen you driving in the white mondial though.

    I would love to meet up sometime and see your Ferrari in real life.

    Snellers is not an official dealer, and certainly has not a perfect reputation (he has been arrested some time ago in a fraud case). Munsterhuis is an official dealer (one of only 2 in the Netherlands, Kroymans is the other one). For sure his new site in Hengelo is great, nice building and most of the time a good selection of available Ferrari's and Maserati's (even seen a Bizzarini once). And yes, he specialises in F40's.

    My negative remark on Munsterhuis was based on personnal experience: I bought my car at this dealer just because he is an official dealer and not an ordinary dealer offering the occasional Ferrari. Therefore I was expecting a top-quality car, but unfortunately I found the quality of the workshop at Munsterhuis quite lacking......

    Nowadays I get the car serviced at Forza Service in Oss.

    Hi...and welcome!
    Am not (yet) a F-car owner...but I am Dutch :D
    I live at the moment just a few minutes away from Kroymans (!)...infact I hire my appartement from his son :D (who does drive a Ferrari...a 550). Here in Hilversum I see almost daily Ferraris...and love that!
    I will miss that when I move, next year, to Utrecht :)

    but I will always have my website(s): www.forzarossa.nl and www.forzaferrari.nl with lot's of Ferrari info :D

    Jurgen,

    Although I live in New Jersey, U.S.A. ( please don't hold that against me!:) ), I love surfing the Euro forum. I find the mentality on your side of the pond to be quite refreshing. Your Fiat Coupe is awesome! I wish that they imported them here but unfortunately that isn't the case. Welcome to the chat! I would love to meet everyone over there soon. Maybe in the Spring! We'll see.

    -Augustine

    P.S. Wolfarossa,
    How's the new TR treating you? Brother Bruce lets me drive his Giallo beauty pretty often and it's a blast! I hope all is well. :)

    Hello Jurgen,

    Welcome to F-Chat.

    I live in Enschede, with my 308 GTSi, so there's number 3 in the region.
    I think it would be nice to meet, at Munsterhuis in Hengelo.

    Thanks for all the nice comments guys!

    Quite a few members living in my region then. Would be very nice to meet up sometime at Munsterhuis. The coupe is a like a lot of italian cars though, high maintenance, has some squeeks and rattles occasionally and has a lot of character. Too bad I just found out I need a new wishbone on the right front though, time to get the wallet out again.

    Mark,

    Thank you for the compliment. Do you live in St. Albans in the UK? I was friends with a girl from there during my days at the University of Miami in Florida. She was an exchange student. Nice looking too! :)

    Hi Augustine,

    I have just moved to St. Albans...and am still getting to know the place (and its gentle delights ;)).

    New Jersey (or should that be "Joizeee"?)!!! :D I have a good friend staying out there and have spent some time with him riding Harleys down the coast. Next time I'm in NY & I make it out to Jersey, I'll let you know!

    Cheers, MARK
