Afternoon All
« on: March 13, 2020, 03:46:18 pm »
As a newbie I just wanted to say hello to you all.

I collect my 2015 595 Competizione tomorrow morning and am genuinely excited at the prospect, having toyed with getting one for a few years now.

Have a great weekend!

    Well, it’s certainly an authentic Italian car experience, judging by my previous car ownership. Currently broken down at a petrol station waiting for the AA to arrive...

    Drama over. Needed a new battery. AA to the rescue!

    Some of the best cars I’ve ever owned have had rocky starts, so it actually bodes well!  ;D

    Will take it for a proper (and hopefully uneventful) drive tomorrow. On another note, my 9 year old daughter absolutely loves it.

    Less than ideal I suppose, but no harm done.

    Just returned from an early morning blast. These things are huge fun!  :thumb:

    What spec is the car? What colour etc? Sounds like you’re enjoying it  :)

    Certainly am, thanks. It’s a red and grey Competizione.  2015 car, so 180bhp, Brembos and Sabelt seats.  Wasn’t convinced about the two tone paint until I saw it in the metal, but now quite like it and it’s certainly different.  :thumb:
