    As of this afternoon I am now a 2011 Ferrari California owner!! I want to give a huge shoutout to Steve at Boardwalk Ferrari in Plano. He was awesome to work with and answered every question.

    my only complaint with the car is the radio. Coming from a Tesla this thing is really dated. It also does not have Bluetooth audio which will drive me insane.

    For those who have updated your stereo do you know if that would void your warranty?

    Sweet! I saw they had it out when I stopped by to pick up the wife's Cayenne. Nice looking ride. And, coming from a Tesla, you now have something a heck of a lot better to listen to tham the radio! Enjoy your new Cali. Post up some pics!

    Congrats! The New Power warranty does not cover the radio, so I doubt it would affect anything, but Steve would know for sure.

    My 2013 head unit had bluetooth and worked fine with my iPhone.

    There are some nice head units that will give you Carplay and fit the car, but it's a very labor intensive process to replace the head unit, you basically have to disassemble the dashboard, so definitely not something for the local car stereo place to take on. Steve can probably refer you somewhere to have it done correctly.

    I rarely, if ever, turned on the radio in either my California 30 or current California T ... I think I got stuck in crawling traffic once or twice and turned it on. The motor is what you really want to hear. You can get a magnetic phone mount and use Waze that way.

    You must have been there the same time I was. I got there around10:00 in the morning and left around 2:00 once everything was done.

    Probably. Was there @ noon or so to pick up the wife's Cayenne from service.
    Glad everything worked out. Enjoy your Cali...T

    It should have bluetooth. Even my 2007 430 has bluetooth and my 2011 FF

    it has Bluetooth phone but I can’t figure out how to get it to play music from Bluetooth. Maybe I am missing it but looked at every way.

    Congratulations! I think it will play bluetooth from the phone, but mine is usually plugged in charging so it plays through USB. I am going to upgrade my head unit and speakers very soon. My daily is a 2020 Performance Model X and it has a very good factory sound system.

    Yeah, coming from the Tesla to this is a huge shock! Although, after having the car now for a few days, I really do find myself not having the radio on and just enjoying the sound of the engine with the top down.

    I did end up finding this (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00B52LLJ6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) that I ordered to see if it will work.

    The stitching is what ultimately made me pick this one. I was originally looking at a 2014 but I just fell in love with this car.

    I use a Bovee adapter for my 458. Not perfect but can play music from my iPhone.

    And beautiful...congrats. Was my first F car and holds a special place for me. Nothing like the feeling of driving off the lot for the first time. Still remember it like it was yesterday.
