Hi Mitch:

Knowing Ferrari numbering habits I'm sure VIN's change without following any logical pattern, (mine is 102470).

Thanks for the info Mitch. I c

Thanks for the info Mitch. I could have made a mistake in my search on www.theaa.com. I really encourage everyone to search any site that lists these recalls to get the full details.

I saw a recall for the 550 to change the wheels to aluminum because the originals may fall off due to cracks caused by over torqueing the lug nuts.


Here is the cut-n-paste from the site:
Recall: 1 of 4
Recall Ref: R2001/148
Exact Model: 550
Description: ROADWHEELS MAY BECOME LOOSE
VIN: ZFFZR49B000107289 TO ZFFZR49C000116711
Build Date: 1st December 1996 to 30th June 1999
Numbers: 280
Defect: There is a possibility that the bolt locating inserts fitted to the magnesium wheel rims may crack if excessive torque is applied to the retaining bolts. This may result in the possible loosening of the affected bolts.
Action: Replace the original wheel rims with aluminium ones that do not have inserts. Also fit new wheel bolts.
Launch Date: 20 November 2001


Wow! I hope all 550 owners where somehow notified.
