So I have owned my 599 since Christmas week 2019. Overall its been a great experience. just thought I'd give my 6 month in perspective: I came from "classic Ferraris of the 80's 308's 328 for over 25 years. while these cars were not anywhere as fast as the 599 - they required you to be totally engaged in the car and driving. The 599 does not demand that until you are doing stupid speeds... really stupid speeds. I have watched Jeremy Clarkson's Top Gear review of the 599 -and I have to agree...to a point. the 599 is so usable, so easy to live with and drive that there is not the same sense of engagement... its not "special" in terms of quirks or issues. ( SO FAR ) ... its hard to compare, but the 308/328 series cars made you work and kept you engaged in the driving .... they also always needed "something" ... the 599 has needed nothing so far. I've had a couple of warnings that pop up, had one check engine light and two stalls... both of which were from hitting the brakes super hard to avoid a bump or squirrel... the F-1 system could not figure out what to do so it stalled. So while I continue to love the 599- its unbelievable power and speed - the sound it makes in 2nd -3rd gear in sport or race mode... there are some times it just seems like a normal car - you forget you are in a Ferrari... where as the 328 - always reminded you were in a Ferrari. I miss the stick shift of my 328, I miss the classic beauty of mid engine - rear cars. I miss the ability to tinker with the 599... don't get me wrong I don't want something bad to happen... because I know It can... but I liked the ability to take things apart, do my own oil, etc.. on the older cars.... I cant for the life of me figure out what Ferrari were thinking when they make an oil change so difficult on the 599 to get right... even for Factory Trained people... anyway I'm surprised that I'm as nostalgic for the older cars as I am. Today- with 89% humidity and 90F out side I'm totally loving that the 599 has ice cold air, comfortable seats and a great Bluetooth sound system... I love turning the key, wait for the blue check ok light and hitting the red start button... I love the bark when you start it... the sense of occasion when you back out... trying to not tear up the clutch... I love that moment when you have a free & clear highway and can jump on it 3rd gear and the lights light up in the wheel... and the terror to realize you are in go to jail speed instantly... the brakes are amazing ... and I'm amazed and love no brake dust... I hate the stone chips you get on the wide nose. I hate the plastic LED strip in the steering wheel.... I love the seats, they are comfy, supportive and I like all the auto adjustment. its just a completely different animal to a 328 series from the 80's... that is what is so hard to get over. But there are similarities - delicate switches - mirror switch. sticky buttons, radio cover that stays at an odd angle... why do you have to press a button to open the glove box? rattles from the seat belt on the carbon door ... hate that. I love the documents holder, and love the key! so I guess I have matured into a modern Ferrari owner - still happy/ grumpy after all these years.
