The AMG GTs is truly an amazing car

But... It looks like I am moving on. A Ferrari F12 has my name on it. I have really enjoyed this forum and reading all of the interesting posts you guys come up with. If I can ever help anyone with maintenance questions, euro taillamps or some of the other things I have posted please feel free to PM me.

Thanks Alex. Hang around, I would like a thread on your new ride.

Was scratching my my head on a 599, but miles KILLS these cars.

F12 will make an excellent GT. I enjoyed daily driving my California and 458 Spider for the years I owned each. Owning a Ferrari is a special experience.

LOVE the 599, F12, any of those big Ferrari coupes. Can't go wrong there at all. The GT is a great car but it's no match for an F12.

OP did you confirm your F12 doesn't have the paint bubbling issue?

Have not noticed any bubbling, and I did know of this issue. I will take a hard look at it this weekend when I get back home. Either way, it will be covered under warranty.

Cool. Let us know your specs and driving impressions. How was pricing?

Are you you still under Orem warranty or did you get new power warranty?

Pricing seemed to be consistent with the current market. I thought it was a fair price. Still has 1 year of factory warranty with option to buy 1 year full extension or 1 year power warranty. After that year is up I can then purchase another 1 year full extension (if I purchased the first full extension) or start on the power warranty for up to 15 years.

What I did with my California was purchase a promo for 2 years additional OEM warranty and 2 years maintenance. That was before the 7 year maintenance came included with new F-cars.

Congrats on the upgrade. If I was not committed to a black series, the F12 was on my list. Amazing vehicle. Please post pics.
Thanks again for all your help on the GT over the last year or so. If you do not mind sending me a pm with your email address just in case you forget about this forum , that would be great. I am really interested in getting feedback on your experience with owning that F12.
