    Hi everyone, I’m a rookie to the exotic car world and looking at 458s at the moment. I came across one that is really nicely specd but it is missing the front lift. Is that a deal breaker in New England? I’ve passed over a lot of cars recently just because they didn’t have this option but then was thinking “how often will I use it?” Or maybe more importantly “how often will this save my ass?” Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    Unless at your house or at some destination you will regularly visit has a steep angled incline, I would say it is not necessary and certainly not a deal breaker all other things being even. A lift wasn't offered on my 612 and it hasn't mattered that I didn't have it. My FF has it and I've only used it just to test it, never because I had to use it.

    Thanks for the quick response! The 612 is a low car too - that helps make that decision easier. Thank you again

    I spent the money on my 488 Spider and never used it. If I order another Ferrari, I will skip that item on the spec sheet.

    Totally personal decision/ necessity. I would never buy/ order a car without it. Need it for my driveway

    I like the front lift for getting on ferries and parking garages.

    Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard or Nova Scotia? :)

    Visit my friend in Westhampton so I take the New London ferry to Orient Point. Visited Martha's Vineyard to test drive cars at a certain someone's house a few years ago. That was fun.
