    beyond the PPI?

    seems the seller has been nothing but transparent here. GLWTS. Short money for a lot of car.

    Here are the specs on the 599 wheels vs the 458 wheels. Not much difference. Half inch narrower in back and half inch wider in the front. Offsets are very close.

    A lot of car for the money.

    One question on the PPI. It says front bumper rock chips, how long ago were the repairs done where the front bumper was painted?

    The car has been damaged, written off by an insurance company, small bucket list of things needed via a PPi, nuisance problem carfax that will take time to rectify yet the wheels are the deal breaker. Sorry, thats just silly but ok.

    Ive put about 250 mile on the car since the repair,
    took to get smoged
    took to brake and light inspection
    took to get the vin verification
    took to the DMV for inspection and registration

    May have rubbed a bid coming out of a few driveways
    and California highways areNotorious for small rocks

    Hence the issues wit the front bumper

    Some of the posts here are hilarious. Initially I thought that the price ($95,950) might be right for a salvage title car with 42,000 miles. Then I looked again. And this car has 4,200 miles. Less than 5,000 miles.

    The comments that this car would make a good exotic car rental in Las Vegas are probably unkind. And I believe that there are plenty of people that would love this car. Would love to own it. Love to drive it. And have pride of ownership. .... As to those who say she will make a good driver. Absolutely yes. Driving them is what gives most of us the greatest pleasure in owning them. Nothing wrong with that. And people that are into drivers are not counting on appreciation obviously. But rather enjoying the ride.

    The pictures before the "two" repair jobs show a car "lightly" crashed. The car wears it's original hood. An indication that this car was not heavily crashed. And think for a moment about the vintage Ferraris that were damaged in period. I think it's more important to these owners that their cars are what they are. Perfectly repaired and preserved wonderful Ferraris. But this car, because it wears a "branded" title will wear the stigma attached to a modern Ferrari that had an accident.

    There will most certainly be people out there that will kick themselves that they didn't buy this car. I too,find it incredible that this car is being offered at such a low price.

    Somebody is going to get a great deal here. And will love owning and driving it. With nary a care about depreciation. Which may keep other cars under cover in their garages.

    How does the car drive? I think that is the most important question of all. No after effects? Tracks perfect? No vibrations?

    Threads about branded title cars are always interesting reading around here. For me this post is 100% spot on!

    Branded cars tend to trade at a pretty constant 25-30% discount to similar non story cars. Sure they can be harder to sell (as shown by this thread) but there will be a buyer and they will get one hell of a car for a discount. Sure that discount will follow the car but whats the difference as it will all work out in the end.

    I've own both regular and branded title cars. I never think about it when driving down the road, my daughter or friends never ask or people on the street dont say nice car, too bad it has a rebuilt title. Branded cars have to go through inspections to get retitled, and IMO are not unsafe. They are not for everyone and I respect that. The new owner of this car can probably drive and enjoy using it more guilt free about miles and wear than many of those who have regular title cars. This isn't meant to be political, but if CV19 has shown us anything its that we can all go at any time, why not live a little and get a great creation from a legendary car maker for a discount and buy, do, go, or get something else fun with the $ saved?

    I can. 90k is 90k. The title will seal the deal for 99%. They are looking for 1% buyer..he's out there..

    I would hope the person who buys this would put it to use with lots of miles. That’s probably the best way to use a well sorted salvaged vehicle. This one is a driver and not a collectors piece.

    Those 458 wheels look surprisingly good on the 599, first time seeing such a combo.

    Agree with others the damage didn't look too bad - good luck with sale!
