Hi, just a thought.
How is a person who walks into a Ferrari showroom treated? This is because many of us are treated quite shabbily when we have entered into an Audi/Mercedes showroom, especially when they realize that you are not their potential customer. I have read of bad treatment by Honda showroom guys in Mumbai. Too much of arrogance being openly displayed by them.
Does Ferrari also follow the same trend?

Hey Farooq, welcome aboard. So how is it to be surrounded by Ferrari's each and every day at work? And every morning do you go, "Hmm.. now which Ferrari do i drive today??"

Man, some people have all the luck


And while you're here, do us all a favour and post GOOD quality pics

I know you would have lot of experiences to share with us especially with those arab kids driving these sports cars. My dad used to talk about these arab kids who use to show off their 'dad's money cars' on the freeways in a crazy manner. !

THANKS n well said,In fact it just clicke me that even the people who own 1 or 2 of these cant take the pleasure of all these crazy machines.
No i didnt drive cos everytime the cars is here for service it comes on winch and after service it again carried back on winch to the owners place the owner is very possive abt his ENZO,He should be coz its not an ordinary one.
But she will not escape from me for too long.
will celebrate the day i will pull it on the strech.
maserati has one of the smoothest suspension,and he seating is so luxurious and comfy these are the two best things i like abt the maserati,and for everything else the car speaks for itself, everytime you drive it you will get immense pleasure.

You get to enjoy so many of the ferraris free of cost. Even the people who buy these expensive toys probably dont get to drive so many of these ferraris in their lifetime. Let us know if you get to drive an enzo. Also what is your take on the masers

What? 7 or 8 Cars per month! That completely blows me off. Were you guys still hitting that figure during the recession?
