    I am usually over in the 3X8 section as I have an 89 328 GTS but figured I would come here for some expertise. My friend is looking to get his first Ferrari. I am going with him to look at this one over the weekend. Anyone have any information on this one specifically or see anything that stands out to stay away from.

    Thanks

    Not familiar at all other than some have used them for service on their 308s and have been satisfied. Any reason to avoid them? PM with details if you have any.

    One observation from photos - ashtray is blown to bits. Need a new one. Price is optimistic for s spider of those miles / condition.

    Where's the rubber cover for the passenger footpad? The leatherwork needs some attention on the passenger airbag. Is that red lettering on the airboxes standard? Is the radio standard? (Looks too modern). Is that CD changer in the right spot for a '95?

    car looks pretty solid

    its a 1995 so that's a +
    mileage is a touch on the high side.. but not too crazy
    ad says full service just done.. with clutch.. if that includes full engine out.. would be good
    red lettering on intake covers is not stock.. but looks well done, I like it.
    heat shield over y-pipe/exhaust is missing.
    both lateral engine covers are there.. so that's good.. often one or both are missing
    the fuel line divider block recall looks done
    overall exterior and top looks good.
    interior looks quite good actually.. closer look will determine sticky condition.
    air bag.. not that bad..
    dash leather looks fine to me, no stretching at the vents or defrost vents.
    rubber foot panel for fuse box missing
    ashtray missing back side of frame.. probably cracked off.
    looks like it has a Tubi exhaust.. so that's nice..
    engine bay looks in overall clean condition.
    radio not stock
    has tool kit and leather spider top cover.

    initial asking price seems fair.. an offer could be made in the lower 60's and go from there..

    I agree, overall decent condition. Very similar to my 96. Make sure the top works, and warning lights (CEL, SRS, etc) are not removed. Ask me how I know about that trick! You should see them light at start up. Take it for a good test drive, give it look over on a lift. Scratch chin and decide if you want to join the club! As for the mileage, I think that could be a plus, as it means it has been driven and not sitting wasting away.

    I dont understand why a dealer would not fix the leather on the air bag, missing footrest, and the ashtray? Easy fixes that make the car more presentable. Consignment car?

    I bought my spider there
    Joe is a nice guy to work with I had one issue with the service manager (Joes Brother)
    I have plenty of Photos of the car when I bought it
    Lorenzo took it upon himself to swap out a few of my parts to make his Car better,
    this happened while Joe was in Italy I have since taken care of some of the issues
    But I will never go back there for service or the purchase of another vehicle of any make

    Reina has had a questionable reputation for years. I would have it independently inspected.
