    Up for consideration is my F430. I've had this car over two years. This is my second Ferrari and I took my time finding "the right one" for me.

    - Low miles but not a garage queen. I have about 14.6K miles on her. I drove her about 50 miles a month to make sure she didn't just sit around.

    - Has AP headers. I didn't want to worry about the factory headers giving me a problem.

    - Has S-Line exhaust. I really love the sound of this exhaust. It's the first exhaust that has made me "forget" about my F355 with Tubi. I have the original exhaust if someone wanted to quiet the sound.

    - Has an immaculate interior. I'd rate the interior a 9.8. The former owner (here on FChat) took great car to ensure the leather was conditioned regularly. I have kept the same regiment. There is virtually no bolster wear (and was never re-dyed) and the vents by the windshield are perfectly in tact. The interior looks factory new. The car is stored in a climate controller garage all year. Note: On the detail-before-last, the headliner fell off (common issue). They had it professionally addressed.

    - Paint is fantastic. Former owner had it paint metered before he purchased it. It has PPF on the hood and other strategic places. I've had the exterior detailed every six months and it has a fresh ceramic coating. There are no dings.

    - Has the F1 solid state relay upgrade. This would have been my first upgrade to the car but luckily, it was installed by the former owner.

    - The car comes with a lot of service paperwork. I could tell the first owner spared no expense. The former owner didn't have any issues but has all of the paperwork for the modifications (mentioned above). Under my ownership, I've had zero issues and have personally performed a full service after it was delivered (I spent ten hours under the car with an independent mechanic because I'm anal that way) and last year's service was done by a different indy (Racewerks in Virginia Beach) as I wanted the car "raised" and aligned (was lowered a bit too far by the previous owner IMHO).

    - Car has two full sets of wheels: ADV1 (on the car now) and authentic Scuderia wheels (perfect shape). With the right offer, both sets will be included.

    - Car has the coveted challenge rear grill. I love the looks but more importantly, the ability for heat to escape. In fact, after every ride, I left the rear hatch open for heat dissipation.

    - Clutch had 68% life on it when purchased, about 1000 miles ago. I have taken great care to exercise caution when switching gears, to extend clutch life.

    - Carbon Fibre rear splitter. OEM included.

    - Has all tools, including the flashlight (battery removed to avoid corrosion).

    This car doesn't need anything. Everything works properly. In a few months, it will need an annual.

    Con:

    - Not Rossa Corsa (my first Ferrari was -- didn't need red this time).

    Feel free to e-mail me at sjones@virginiabeach.com for more information. I'm located in Virginia.

    Hey Dan!

    If my baby sells, probably a GT350R as a daily driver.

    If not, I'll convert her to a 6 speed and keep it.

    Either way, winning. Lol.

    Hope all is well. Are you enjoying retirement?

    The more I think about this, the more I want to keep it.

    This is a no stories car that couldn't be replaced at this price with all the goodies.

    Might have to rethink this.

    Hi Steve, yes I'm enjoying retirement big time.
    It's everything I expected it to be.

    Everyday is a holiday, everyday is a weekend, no more alarm clocks, I get to spend more time with family, I get to drive my car more often, travel more with my wife and see the rest of the world.

    I feel so blessed and extremely grateful for all the blessings. Health is very good too.

    We're going back to Hawaii in July. Taking the entire family to Aluani Disney resort in Oahu for our 40th wedding anniversary.

    Hope all is well with you.

    Take care always.

    Dan

    Just a quick note that the F1 actuator was replaced in my car by a previous owner. That's a really big bill you don't want to have. Work was done by a Ferrari dealer.

    95K. Comes with two sets of wheels. Sell either set and you have a quality F430 for ~90K.
