    Hello everyone, I am a new member of this community, in love with the cars made in Maranello since I was a kid, and now with the available resources to finally buy my first one.

    I live in the north of Italy, near Milan, and I have been looking at different options online for a 458 Italia, from the Ferrari official network, to different dealerships, to individuals.
    Can anyone suggest me what the best thing to do would be? Is it worth it spending more money and buy from the official dealer? Pros and cons?

    Thank you in advance, everyone, I can't wait to be part of the family.

    Welcome & good luck with your search

    To get the factory warranty will probably give you peace of mind for your first car so talk to an official dealer first - even so it is worth getting a car independently inspected - you can also add the official warranty to a car bought outside the network if you find something more to your liking

    Don't forget if the car is less than seven years old it will have servicing included

    Much much good buying advice already in the 458 section

    We have a 2017 Cali T with less than 700 miles for sale on consignment at the dealer. We bought it new from that dealer and they've done all service. It has the factory warranty. It is competing against a couple other 2017 Cali T's that are owned by dealer and can be labeled Ferrari Approved. Ours can't, but I can tell you there is no difference in the quality of our cars vs. the Ferrari Approved one. My only question is does the 12 month Ferrari Approved warranty cover anything the factory warranty doesn't?
