    Thanks for sharing and let's see if I can make it there. Tracks days are always interesting of course but Oman trip surely looks more tempting. But the membership+entry cost of almost $2000? Seems like coming by to track day is not free ;)

    Anyways, I don't want to bore you with my own problems. Finally I have the contact to the club. Hope to meet in person one day.

    Hello Ferrari owners in Dubai,

    I have moved to Dubai recently and am considering buying a California (2012 or so) or California T (2015 or so).

    Can you share any insights into pros and cons of either. Also, being new to Dubai and never having owned a Ferrari before, I would love to hear your thoughts on maintenance costs on these. Thanks in advance for your help!

    Would have been nice to keep the conversation flowing here guys so everyone can participate and grow this page.

    I am an owner of old and new and would love to discuss the branching horse experience in Dubai.

    I have no experience with the Cali but I have a 599 which is the same, shall we say, generation. Also a 355 which is a different beast (but a cool one).

    Hi,

    A warm welcome to Dubai, U.A.E. I own the Cali T HS 2017MY... bought it directly from the dealer Al Tayer Motors... peace of mind to buy directly from the dealer... so far no issues in maintenance costs so far as long as you service it on time directly and extend the warranty... ATM happen to have a 2015 Cali T at the moment... even if you buy from outside the dealer network, make sure you get any car you are interested in buying to get it checked at dealer to find if there is anything hidden you maybe unaware of it... after buying one you could also join the FOC club or SCM or both... one of the supercar clubs here in Dubai... you get to join other like minded enthusiasts... do PM me if you want more info... Happy Hunting :D

    As long as you have the dealer do the pre-purchase inspection or (PPI) done ... you should be alright. Also do your homework on reading buyers guides to know what you are looking for and avoid.

    Thanks guys for the input, much appreciated.

    Agreed it’s best to keep the conversation flowing on this forum thread.

    Quick follow up questions:
    Any particular buyers guide you recommend or should I just search online?

    Every model normally have several buyers guide .. all on line. I would read one from Europe and one from US to get a different perspective.

    Just curious, why a California?

    Thinking of something that is an easier drive. I may not need it daily but want to be okay driving several times a week. Was looking at 911s but I think would be cool to get a Ferrari

    Potentially looking to go with a 2013 California. The price seems to be in mid to low AED 250K for mileage around 30K kms. Any expert thoughts on things to watch out for etc. I would likely get a pre purchase inspection from the dealership. Also, is there a standard warranty/service package the dealer sells for Ferrari? If so, what is the approximate cost. Thanks in advance for the input.

    Definitely get a PPI done from Al Tayer... getting a warranty depends on whether there is still an existing valid warranty on the car and whether it is from Al Tayer... you can purchase a warranty/service package combo from the dealer directly if the car is still under warranty... happy searching :D
