Free 7 year servicing on 2012 onward cars. :)

Yup correct, and apparently things like the current carbon ceramic brake discs never have to be changed???  Not sure how true this is but that is what the dealer told me the other day
You can say I'm wrong, but my garage doesn't agree with that statement!!!

All this talk of servicing costs amuses me. It's a feature of running old cars, not new ones (or even young ones). Depreciation is the only significant cost. Nothing else comes close. Spend what you are willing to lose and anything you get back on trade-in is a bonus. :p

Is there a factory service provider for Ferrari in Adelaide now?

Yes, the new dealer on the corner of hindley and west tce.

A sensible way of looking at it. I'm quite sure the free servicing is just built into the price, but either way it was quite reasonably priced.

Blame Porsche and McLaren - if it wasn't for them, I'd be showing 80,000km by now. :o

I don't know much about the F430 but I rate it above the Gallardos I knew.

I reckon I see you in the Boxster more than anything else these days which is surprising for a car that is worth less than a third of the others.

I have a feeling there would be a few Gallardo owners out there who would say the same thing...

I get the hairy eyeball at home if I use the Boxster too much, otherwise I'd use it more.  It's such a sweet, sweet drive.

I'm itching to see the Gallardo replacement but it has a huge amount of ground to make up.

Sweet drive ? How so as compared to a 911, just easy ?

As a manual sports car I found it an easier drive than many sedans.

Burbly exhaust, slick gearbox, playful chassis, nice size, fast roof, great seats, plenty of power, good looks.  It's all you need. :thumbsup:

So it's the one you'd grab in the event of a fire in  your garage? :)

In the event of a fire, I'm off to the showrooms again. :)
