    Image Unavailable, Please Login Image Unavailable, Please Login Just picked up my 2014 California 2 two weeks ago. The car had 3810 miles on it (Car Fax Certified ) Got the original sticker 239K.
    It had 2 previous owners , why anyone would spend that kind of money and not drive the car is beyond me. I added a 3yr warranty and a tire and wheel package , So far so good , I have posted some pictures below
    Any Recommendations from Ferrari California owners.

    Beautiful car! The more you drive it, the better it gets! Does yours have the HS package? It really provides a smooth ride.

    Another white over red. Very tasty. Only recommdations would be to check the age of the tires and battery. If more than a few years old, replace. Keep it in a better tender always. Drive it a lot!

    I agree with tomc on this. The retractable roof takes a lot of juice, and you don't want to be in a situation where the operation stops half way. A strong, fresh battery is key to having a good experience with the Cali. Did you purchase this from a non Ferrari dealer? Are you lucky enough to have the service history? Basic maintenance was covered (and should have been performed) on this car for the first seven years.

    Yes bought it from a non Ferrari dealer, Had them replace the battery after 1 week (didn't start great) and the tires are new
    got the service records , all basic service performed and I added a 3 year full coverage warranty.

    That was the first Cali I almost bought. They were asking $110k, I belive. What did you end up paying for it?

    I couldn't get them to call me back or even reply to text messages.

    I didn't deal with Fred but the 2 guys I tried to buy from both sounded like a bunch af d-bags.

    I am jealous you got that car....it was perfectly specced and I a hope you post lots of photos!

    I am still searching for a perfect white over red Cali. :(

    $108,750 I thought that was extremely fair based on the mileage ,
    and condition, i have been looking for quite a while and based
    on the prices i saw i am quite happy

    It is a BEAUTIFUL highly-specced specimen. I am super jealous and am hoping to find my white over red Cali T (Yeah...I've decided to get a T now)! :)

    I had one, same year, it was a great first exotic for sure and the prices are great right now!

    A well known YouTuber did a review on my car.


    Enjoy in good health!

    Looks amazing! Enjoy it!

    Agree with the folks that say get a good Ctek battery tender. If the brake lights not working on the trunk bothers you, that is an easy fix.

    They do not require a lot of work so go have fun!
