    Selling my first California. She's perfect. Only reason I'm selling her is I wanted a color change in a big way. The bright red was causing problems for my kids being seen at school. My perfect color combo came up and I grabbed it so now I have one too many Cali's.

    Noteworthy to the community, first and foremost it's a Piper car which means immaculately maintained and my rep behind it. Otherwise, please note she has new motor mounts, new charcoal can on the fuel tank, new rear tires. She's had only one sticky, and the climate control cluster which has been beautifully corrected by Sticky No More. Zero stickies on this car. The paint was just polished and sealed with ceramic in April, show ready. The leather is immaculate, regularly treated with leatherique. ZERO wear on the bolster. ZERO. This car looks and drives like brand spanking new. She comes with four sets of mats starting with the top of the line Nicks Forza Ferrari shields, then factory carbon fiber and factory black, and a set of cheap tan extras when you know you'll get dirty. She comes with cover and factory charger.

    Listed at $109,495. Willing to consider serious offers.

    Piper - if I was in the market I would NOT hesitate to buy from you. I am sure someone will come along soon since we are gliding into summer. Good luck.

    Thanks, man. Getting regular offers. Just turned down $105k, from a stranger. I'd love to see it go to an Fchatter or someone in my local C&C, and I'm willing to consider offers from such.

    Great price and exactly what I'm looking for. Just the timing is off. I'm waiting until the driving season which in Memphis starts about September.

    I completely agree on getting an off color. This was the first rossa corsa fcar I've owned and I regretted it. Got it for my son. Don't think I'll ever get bright red again. Went back to my favorite, rubino micalizzato. Not sure I spelled that right, but it sure is a rare color and I love it. When a Cali T came up in rubino I had to grab it. Hope you find your car. I love the new one so much I'm immediately doing everything I need to get it sorted just right, more CF interior and exterior, subwoofer, forza floor mats, carbonio plate holder, everything all at once immediately. Spent weeks thinking up the perfect license plate for her. I'm in love...lol

    I liked the Grigio Jennie had, but could go several colors.

    I'd say silverstone is, generally speaking, the best color for the original Cali body. I've thought that since launch and it still holds true. The styling was a tad polarizing at first, and silverstone is a bit understated. But here were are a decade later and I think it still a great color for the Cali. Probably your second best for resale as well next to corsa red. I OTOH have a soft spot for darker reds, particularly metallic. If I'd seen a Cali 30 come up in rosso fiorano, mugello, or rubino I'd have gone for another 30. I'm really thrilled with the Cali T though. I think the lines are better, and while I used to think it was a little too fly by wire, I like the handling better now and it's geared a little better. The gearing on the 30 is shifts a bit too aggressively and I think in part to make up for the lower torque which is much less of a problem on turbo'ed engines. Downside though, and the only thing I don't love about the Cali T is you lose that beautiful NA sound.

    Another California, but this time a Cali T. She's stunning. I have more carbon on the way, finishing the upper carbon in the cabin, replacing the composite fins on the diffuser with carbon. Installing a sub. I'm pleasantly surprised by the quality of the sound system, but it needs a sub. Ordering top nick's forza mats for her with scud shields. Love this car.

    Piper- love the new T. How does your new color compare to the Rosso California? I’m a big fan of the deeper metallic reds and I’m thinking of grabbing one but there are none local for me to look at. Yours looks geat!
    I also had a 30 in Grigio silver stone and thought it worked well on the body lines.

    I think Rosso California is closer to like a shade darker Rosso Fiorano where Rubino has a hint of purple, like a metallic merlot maybe. It's really, really similar to Rosso California though, which is good. These things seem cyclical and model specific, but where Rubino was really rare on my 599 or on the 458 Spider I was looking at, for this year California its almost traditional though still uncommon. The first year of the 360 saw a lot of Fiorano as well.

    I'm also a huge fan of deeper metallic reds. LOVE THEM. Thanks for the compliment. I've just received my carbon from eurospares to finish off the dash. The original owner did the driver's zone, but not the vents, Ferrari logo insert and radio surround. Going to look great. I'm also working with Exotica on a solution for carbon on the diffuser without the full Novitec look. I want a stock look so we're going to try to custom fill and finish the additional holes on the Novitec fins so I don't have to do the Novitec skirts. The fins on the back of the Cali look terrible. Ultimately, I want the grill in carbon as well. I'm adding anything and I'm not going to carbon any exterior bits that are Rubino. But I do want all the black on the car to be carbon.

    That's how I know I love this car. I've got the stupid must-spend-money-upgrading bug for her. I'll end up doing a Capristo exhaust on her eventually as well.
