Anyone remember the absolute hero that bought the £18k 456 with a myriad of warning lights on the dash? I recall a scruffy 10k one as well, but don't believe much happened over that thread wise.

Still love a 550, probably one of my favourite Ferraris of all time, and to think they were once so cheap frown

Pretty sure they were sub £40k at one point - I considered buying one - would have been circa 2006 frown

Hello all, yes there is news!! The car is still mine first and foremost.....but has not been piling on the miles unfortunately due to a myriad of reasons.

Its currently minus most of its rear end for refreshing and rebuilding - worn drive shaft UJs and diff carrier bearings past their best at 112,000. Will update the thread shortly!

Yes they were. I'd saved up £50k for one a bit after that. £35k was a ropey one, and at around £50k there were some nice ones. I wish I had. The other car I was considering was a 996 GT3, also in that price range back then. How things have changed!

Hi PHAB - would love to know how things are going with the 550. I'm on the lookout for one and reading this thread has been quite inspirational.
