My two cents and maybe you want change: I remember roughly one year ago when I bought my 328. The idea of owning a Ferrari was a little intimidating and I don't know why, so I learned to get all the personal stuff out of my head and pull the trigger. You can be anxious about service and repairs but just expect to cover somewhere around 7-15k above whatever the purchase price is and bring the car up to speed. Even if you pay top dollar (because you can verify what was done during your tenure but who knows about the rest). Every other emotion or feeling only mucks up the waters. I had emailed the previous owner until he got frustrated with me (sorry , and when he finally said that it was about me I knew I was just being a baby. Truth be told, I think you can get a vibe from a car and when you feel it you will know. Its not like picking a mistress, she wont get jealous if you sleep somewhere else (the chairs don't even go all they back). I have talked to boat owners and I have noticed that we share the same sense of achievement but with a huge difference in experience based on our mutual purchases. Most boat owners have told me that the two happiest days of ownership are the day they bought the boat and the day they sold the boat. I have spoken to at least a dozen former ferrari owners, they have said the worst decision they made was not keeping the car. Lastly, while I have never met Bullfighter his post are probably the smartest in town.
