Here is my story.... Been wanting an F458 for last year. Got deadly serious on buying one of the less than 1K mile cars on the market in March for between $280k and $310k Before I bought Pre-Owned, I took a chance one early morning and sent 20+ emails to different dealers within 500 miles both of my homes in Minneapolis, MN and Austin, Texas. Minnesota does NOT have a Ferrari Dealership. Everyone told me to wait 6-9 months except one - I got lucky. Cauley Ferrari in Detroit told me I could get 2nd in line in March. Dan Kizner was super to deal with from the instant he responded to my email same day, early AM. Put down the deposit. Ferrari NA called Cauley in March and ONLY requested one car - the guy ahead of me. Stopped by on a business trip two weeks ago and drooled over the preowned cars (including one amazing 599) and FOUR F458s in for owner additions (anti-chip film or delivery in the service bay). I was dying at that point. Ferrari NA called TODAY (4/30) and requested ONE F458! My order was accepted for "July/August Production" and it is definitely a 2013 model year. This is a dream come true - can't wait to show up with a check, drive the car a day and immediately ship it to one of my homes. Spent hours reading your posts on options and experiences - thanks for all your opinions, experiences, and recommendations!
