    I noticed I'm approaching 40,000 km (24k miles). This is a daily driver for me and the best car I ever had. I enjoy it a lot.

    I also know that owning a car is a continuous process.

    I never tried to sell a Ferrari before. What is a good balance to sell the current one in terms of miles? Perhaps to put a bit on top of it and switch to a used 458/488 or Huracan? Or is 40,000 km already too late and I should just keep on driving until 100k-150k?

    The Cali T I have currently has warranty for 2 years more. I'm driving it about 20000km per year.

    Unless you're a midget or a masochist, forget the Huracan. Take it to your local authorized Ferrari dealer and ask what they will offer for a 488 swap.

    Spring / summer is the best time to sell a convertible.

    Depends on what you want out of the car. I think you are going to get hit pretty hard on the depreciation for the mileage and you will too on a 458/488 if you put that many miles on them. The 458/488 are much sportier and smaller cockpits than the Cali T. They are not as good for daily driving although that's not to say they can't be used that way. I saw a Cali T offered for $99k with 36k miles on it and nothing wrong with it although it was a 2015.
