    I am looking to buy a Ferrari. In looking at different models I have determined that the F430 / F458 is the model for me. I looked at the California but this model is not for me. It seems a little "girly" to me. So I went to the dealership last week and they told me that I could get on a list to buy a F458 but this would take 3 years to get the car. Is this accurate information? They also showed me the used cars that they had. They showed me the F 430 2007. They were asking 159,000. How do I know that this is not completely over priced? What is the best way to look for a used car? And how do I know that it is not over priced. With the economy doing so poorly can I get a better price than normal?

    Thanks

    Well the 458 isn't even out yet... so if you have any intentions of getting one... pay up and wait.

    If a 430 is what you are looking for, we need some more details about colors, options, etc that you are looking for.

    eBay can usually give you an idea on the price range too.

    I'd recommend the 458 myself. I've had one for a couple of years now and I think it's very nice. The seats warm up pretty quickly and I get pretty good gas mileage too.

    The best way to look for a used car? Research, more research and then some more research.
