    Nice car, and nice deal. Only negative is that it is a euro spec car, but still seems like a good deal to me.

    Theyve had that car at least 4 months. Ive seen it first hand. Not a bad looking car. I didnt give it a thorough look though. Originally offered for a little over a $100,000. Definately a deal there.

    Am I the only one that has noticed the Ferrari/Lambo market going very VERY soft lately? No one wants to pay anything. Is it just the time of year or the fact that the economic state of our country is swirling in the toilet... or both?! I never seem to remember it this soft and Im always watching.

    Sometimes with lower miles cars...interior pieces such as seats are worn as much or more as high mileage examples. Many times those low mileage cars are 10 to 20 mile trips x 1000 with lots of getting in and out of the car.


    Along with people still being very jittery in this post 9-11 era, I think the market is soft with some exotics because many collectors and investors are currently focused on American Muscle.

    90K seems like a nice deal if the car is in good working order.

    The words "Ferrari", "ebay", and "deal" never go together without trouble.

    LOL! Ferrari market is always tough on the 'sell' side...

    It's also very hard on the 'buy' side as well, IMO.....there's a lot of 'pigs in lipstick' out there!

    I agree, Dr. Tommy....ebay is where the 'problems' and car 'flippers' seem to go, although I know some Fchatters have used it. I read the FCA Newsletter ads, myself, although the last one I snagged was off Rob's FerrariAds.

    I bought it before the 78 year old guy figured out how to post the pictures! LOL!

    Im learning more and more about TRs. Why is a Euro spec car a negative to enthusiasts?

    Because someone other than the factory has someonthing to do with the assembly of the car. Also some parts can be more difficult to get in the US if it is a Euro spec car.

    They might had to change the odometer when doing the certification so the mileage is anyone's guess. Remember they tend to use the cars harder in Europe.
