    I don’t know what a good price in the US is but I’d definitely check out the rotors with that mileage.

    Remember they should be smooth as glass when you run your finger nail against them.

    If not get them weighed. Otherwise these cars are pretty solid

    Gorgeous Cali T! Love TDF Blue and that Interior with Daytona's!
    Not sure why Carfax shows for sale at 21xxxx Miles and add says 31xxx Miles?
    Price seems reasonable, although if 31K is higher mileage for the average 2016 Cali T. See if the Dealer will add the Power Warranty for 24 months.
    I believe you will love it.

    Seems pretty solid. The T's usually have not been driven hard, so there's definitely a good chance that the rotors are fine. Check and see how much brake pad is left. If less than 6mm of material, ask for a new set of pads as part of the deal. That will often fly as it's a win for both you and the dealer. They get the pads cheap all things considered so they aren't out a lot on that, and yet it is a good deal for you as you save what amounts to pads and the work included FAVT. They lose a little, you save a lot. Good deal all around.

    Ask for all the small stuff. Get new wipers as well, get an allignment in the deal, perhaps a set of floor mats if the old are tired.

    You rarely can knock a lot off the price, but get all the small stuff which adds up.

    All in all it is very nice. Very simar to an 812 I had the wonderful pleasure of dating briefly. Blu Le Mans w. Beige Tradizione. A wonderful combination, especially with silver wheels.

    Speaking of which.. How are the tyres on that car doing? Get a set of MPS4S as part of the deal:)

    Make sure to do your due diligence though - pre-purchase inspection, or go down and test drive it and look it over.
