As above, I won the bid for the following car on Ebay. At the end of the auction the seller called me to let me know that the car had not passed EPA & NHTSA certification. He reported buying the car in FL from a Turkish man that has since returned home. In addition I recieved email that is likely from a member of this board that informed me that the car was not legal (thank you very much). I was really looking forward to my first Ferrari, I still want this car or one like it. Called a couple of independent importers and they estimate 15-20k to get the car compliant and re-imported and five months of waiting. Carfax reports that the car was initially titled in Stuart, FL @12,426 miles. Since that time it passed emissions inspection in Orange, CA and has been titled in York, PA. There are no reported problems with the car on carfax, however I have to wonder what it went through in Europe. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2456340586&category=6212&sspagename=STRK%3AMEBWN%3AIT I bought the car for 55K, this price plus certification costs are well below what I can find a similar US car for. In addition the owner has agreed to cut the price, the amount is not firm yet. I would greatly appreciate advice, look forward to really joining the board with the purchase of a car.
