My new 595 Competizione

Morning all,

Some of you may remember me from a few years ago. I had a 'launch' 500 1.4 Sport which after nearly 6 years and 60k miles has been purchased by my nephew's other half.

My apologies for having drifted away as a regular contributor, work seemed to get in the way, and I was modding on a BMW forum at the time too.

This gave me an opportunity to get the car I had oft dreamed about, a 595 Competizione. I got it two weeks ago, in the distant memory of warm weather, done just short of a thousand miles in it, and I am loving it.

This isn't the families main mode of transport, both my wife and I have other cars, but it seems to be getting a load of use, just like the 500 before it.

Spec : Rekord Grey, natural leather, skydome, interscope, yellow calipers

Unfortunately, the 6 years away has done little to improve my photography skills

I had the car detailed prior to collection as it represented good value versus the dealer costs of protection and regard it as one of the best investments ever made.

Re: My new 595 Competizione

Just back from a week away and the car was all shiny in my garage. Left the wife's car at the airport and my 911 on the drive to gather a weeks worth of dirt and rain.

Got it out today and went for a spirited drive. I absolutely love this car.

I am now going through the heartache of whether to sell my other car and run the Abarth full time. It will be a decision lead by the heart and head. I get so much fun at sane speeds.

You wouldn't be the first to get rid of a 911 and be happy with a grey 595...

So I understand. My dealer reckons he has a number of owners who run 595's as well
