    Daniel- Looks great. FFs are by far the best deal going for late Ferraris. Usable, too.

    Beautiful car!
    Always a concern, maintenance on the old models vs depreciation on the new models...pick your poison

    Congratulations, Daniel. That is a lovely beast. And well managed domestic buyin, btw. Glad she likes the FF. Mine is enamored of the 456's looks....but then none of our offspring have graced us with the next set...yet. Well done all the way around, sir.

    Beautiful color also looks like after-market wheels.

    In my opinion 456 in the top tier for beauty of all Ferrari’s built.

    That really is a good looking car. I'm real interesting in your driving impressions as you get used to it and comfortable. An FF is my candidate for, not really a DD, but for more regular use than the 456 sees. Love that color and I'v always been enamored of shooting brake designs.

    I confided in Laserguru a few weeks ago about my desire for an FF, specifically the one listed for sale at CNC Motors. As mentioned above by Taz, a lot of car for the money. Maybe next year.

    Seems a bunch of us that appreciate 2+2s have a quiet quest on for FFs. I'll likely never be the new Ferrari buyer. I love the depreciation curve too much, well, I need the depreciation curve that much!! Timing, timing, timing....we'll lie in wait until the right unsuspecting prey wanders into the field of view....

    At 4100 miles to hard to resist, I liked the interior of the CNC FF but mama had her say, “ If that ugly thing is going
    to be parked at my house the interior will be the cream one”She choose the interior of my 456 also.

    I gather the shooting brake is not her cup of tea. Probably calls BMW Z3 coupes the "Clown Shoe". Dang I love those things and the FF.

    I love the gun metal grey wheels with the Rosso Mugello body. Not a big fan of black wheels you normally see. Interior is striking and gives it a very classy look but then again alll front engine Ferraris are a gentlemans car in my book.

    Congratulations! Very beautiful and elegant color combination! What modifications does your FF have? I see aftermarket wheels, front lip, side skirts, rear spoiler, ...

    Outside carbon package as you mentioned, I have both sets of rims,
    I’m giving it a few weeks to see how much I like the carbon package,Where Ferrari ar concerned I am very old fashioned I like
    them to be as the factory gates.

    Congrats. I was just looking at a Rosso Corsa FF, but that's a much better red for the car. Very nicely optioned.

    Thanks George your post have been a great help to me during my journey with my beautiful 456m
    it's amazing to me the lack of praise a 12cyl true Italian beauty like the 456 doesn’t get.
