    Leaking shock absorbers, track rod ends, ball joints, drive shafts clicking

    check clutch wear

    There were some reports of top end rattle that needs a lot of work to resolve, worth doing a search on Ferrarichat

    awesome car, fuel economy is not for the environmentalist or faint hearted

    Default Hello Graham

    Hi Graham,
    I do really fancy a 599 HGTE, but not sure I can stretch to it. Ill have to see. Although long term they will probably hold their value more than the standard 599.
    How are you? Still enjoying the car I guess, although I did hear you are looking into an F12.
    Business good I guess.

    Speak soon
    Andy.
