    Is there a way to determine whether a Cali T is equipped with the HiFi audio by just looking at the car? I’m considering purchasing a 2016 and the dealer doesn’t have either the window sticker or a build sheet.

    Or call a Ferrari dealer with the Vin, they can look it up. By the way Algar has quite a few T's in stock. I noticed that when I was there last weekend.

    Where would this be? On the head unit, speakers or both?

    I know , right. Really weird. Maybe the salesperson had the wrong build sheet. It was white / black Cali T which I test drove. It had about 10,000 miles and I think it was a 2016. ~ 159k.

    I just looked it up and the advert says Hi Fi. Look up Ferrari Palm Beach and you will see what I’m talking about. Best , Kirk

    Are you sure Herb?
    I am just buying a Cali T with Hi Fi, I had another dealer to check out the build sheet and both he and the selling dealer said it had Hi FI but there seems to be no JBL on the door speakers, so the question is how can I be sure it has the upgrade by looking at it?

    Go to Audio Settings and look for the Quantum Logic option. If it's there, it's HiFI.

    I may be mistaken, but wasn't the JBL! logos only used in the Cali with "upgraded" hifi, but not in the Cali T?

    Mine is HIFI but no JBL logo.

    My ears can tell its HIFI from having sat in a non-HIFI seconds before playing the same song! The difference is very obvious.
