So funny. I fell in love with it all over again

So much I bought an anniversary 550 spyder yesterday. FML. Love the box regardless of people calling it a chick car. It's truly bad ass.

Just paid for it yesterday. I pick it up tomorrow and will take some better pics.

Thing is. My car was a theft recovery. And these biggest distinguishing features were stolen. Rims, factory nav(according to options sticker) and the biggest give away the plaque where the anniversary badge is listed is missing. This guy has no clue what he had.

More of the story later. But man. I love this car!!!

Awesome, congrats!

Don't mean to hijack but I love the 550 and thought it was only offered in manual transmission, check out this CL ad in LA:

Best 2-seater sporty car I've ever owned, out of at least seven I can remember.
