    I've often heard fellow F-chatters say the cars get better the more you drive them, this baby has 90k km or roughly 56k miles:

    I love the color combo and with the weather becoming nice here I'm looking for a car to enjoy for the season, the price is killer too at USD 47k, so what do you say? Go or no go?

    My major concern is the mileage or it shouldn't be?

    I saw that, too... but I was looking at the one next to it, the Red/Tan 550 for KD14,500 ($54,700.00).

    Have you called the guy yet and looked at it up close? I'm just not too hot on the red interior... The white looks great, but I've never liked red for the interior on any car.

    I think it is a good deal.
    Go for it if PPI & compression test results are OK.
    Good luck.

    90k kms is not much especially for a 10yr old car. That is an average of 9k kms a year which is a very moderate usage. If well serviced and the PPI and compression test are good, then go for it. The colors are very nice too..........mabrouk mokadaman ;).

    No Doubt its a great deal, Mike I totally understand about the color but I love Japanese owned Ferraris, their passion and enthusiasm is addictive and this 550 in white looks like it was transplanted into Kuwait from Tokyo :-> LooooL

    The red 550 is a classic no doubts about it, but when I hear much smarter people than myself like Napolis predicting that Lambo 6.0s (another fav. of mine) falling to USD 30k before this crisis is over, makes me want to just sit on my cash and look at how things go.....

    Choices Choices :) now if only Tarek gets that Enzo :-> LoooL, that would be the ultimate high for me, yes Tarek I do live through your posts LoooL, its true.

    Thanks guys :)

    Not that it's a bad thing because the car looks very nice, but does it look to anyone else like that front bumper is aftermarket.

    Didn't the 550's front grill have lights, and look at the lower edge line of the grill, it looks like it has some kind of lip, wether aftermarket or not nice car.

    I need to get rid of a car to park it, although I've been told the more you drive them the better, the mileage bothers me, I like to buy cars when they're below 40k km atleast.
