I think they may have confused the car with a steeplechase horse and tried to jump a hedge in it. On the way to a good chap to be sorted out soon, so when it's done I'll be happier.

Some weeks things break, all part of the experience I guess!
C'mon, do it!

They are awesome as a big, floaty GT. Ours is an auto, and as much as everyone poo poo's that option - its actually very good with the big, torquey engine and suits the car down to a tee. I've driven the 6 speed version quite a bit and while it has moments of goodness it's still a big heavy car that works best as gentleman's transport.

Didn't know you could be tempted mate, I would have offered the 456 as part trade on the Diablo   :mischief:

I've done a fair share of mileage in 456's too

I love 'em to bits.....

But have to say that an imported 550 is just as affordable in this country now....

I decoded some time ago, that the 4 seater Ferrari's are great for chucking luggage etc in, but who really uses the back seats to give rides to people that ENJOY the way you drive a ferrari?

I'm working as hard and smart as I know how, in order to one day have a 550...

ideally WSR for me.....  :tilt:

Bugger, re your problems uberguy

Check for damage to the crank sensors when a 456/550 gets grounded.... as well as the obvious stuff....
