    silver will normally not command the price that a comparable red 348 will. Expect about 2-3K less on price. However, your love for the car will not compare as well if you do not buy the colour you TRULY desire. With that said, get the silver and don't think twice...If 2-3K is going to make a huge difference down the road, then don't buy a Ferrari....they are not investments, they are dream makers....Don't let resale make your decision, let your feelings do that. Ferrari is about a passion for driving.

    I'm just buying my first 348, and i'm going with 're-sale red' after looking at a blue one! when I want to upgrade i want it quick, not hanging around for a year until the 'right' person comes along.

    Interior colors greatly impact sale times, perhaps even prices. Red/Black will stay on the market far longer than red/tan, for instance (tan seats don't get as hot in the sun and don't show wear quite as fast as the black seats).

    That being said, buy what you *want* to fulfill your dream; if you want investments, this is not the place.

    Yes, but bear in mind that we're in the UK, we don't have much problem with the sun over here! :D

    In answer to the question - yes, silver will take longer to sell. There is one up in Yorkshire that a friend of mine went to see a few weeks ago, but it wasn't quite right (PM me if this is the one you are looking at) and it has been for sale for a while.

    Having said that, it depends a lot on condition as well. A great silver one will always sell better than a ropey red one.

    As far as I can figure, the preferrence for 348 colours seems to go something like:
    1 - red
    2 - yellow and black
    3 - blue and silver
    4 - green and white and any other (only ever seen one green and one white one)

    Whereabouts in UK are you? It is encouraging seeing all these people looking to buy 348s... maybe I should keep mine a while longer after all :D
