    Car has just had major service completed last month plus additional work and upgrades. New complete Fabspeed headers, 2nd Cat delete pipe, and muffler/resonator system. New Michelin tires. $20k in receipts that last 2 months. No DTC codes except one for a bad Cat ECU which is getting replaced next week.

    Seats look great! They appear to have only 4K miles on them not 41,500 miles.

    All the best on your sale!

    Cheers!

    I’m no “pro” ponent of BaT. However, I would say exposure wise, vs eBay, BaT blows views out of the water.

    I listed my 308 GTS on eBay twice. Max 5000 views each time.

    Sold it through BaT for $6000 more than the highest eBay bid. And with about 32,000 views in a week.

    What is it about the site you don’t like? I bet your 355 would sell easily, and for ask.

    I had that happen to pics from my car someone copied off ebay. You should be able to notify craigslist that the listing is false. Or just get in touch with the craigslist "seller" and troll him!

    +1 on Bring a Trailer. Much better "quality" exposure in my opinion compared to eBay. Mostly enthusiasts and knowledgeable. Also, to bid, they have to have a credit card on file with BaT. Keeps the a**wipes away who have no intention of following through with a purchase and have nothing better to do. I sold a Citroen SM on BaT last year and it was a great experience.

    You put this on BAT and you are looking at $65k bid max. I think BAT is a great platform for many cars, but Ferrari’s fail to hit reserve and generally don’t get the love they deserve. If this was an NSX or a 911 people would over pay by $10k all day long.

    Unfortunately, that seems to be true in a lot of cases. BaT goes bananas for Porsches (especially 912s, which blows my little mind) but I sure think the 512TRs, 355s, and even 308/328 listings I've seen there have been a buyer's boon and a seller's regret. I don't know what it is – I think it's generally a smart peanut gallery and it's car lovers through-and-through. But F-cars don't seem to drive the frenzy there.

    When my sell day comes, I'll start with a few folks here who've PM'd me, then maybe a classified here, then…my local car culture gathering spots, like Avants and The Shop. I figure the face-to-face will help. Unless BaT really starts moving a lot more Italian sheetmetal at better prices, that is.

    Did this car come out of the Atlanta area (previous owner) ?

    I think the perception of BaT cars mainly comes when owners have inflated views of the transaction vs list prices. If you look at live sale auction results, it seems Ferrari's and Porsche, etc. are following market trends pretty well.

    I sold a very ratty 456 for a friend on BaT, an E39 M5 with 40k miles, and was happy with all results. I think the values are more a reflection of the market/car than of the BaT exposure.

    Looks clean. I’d love to add the 355 to my 458 but the wife would kill me.

    GLWS!
