    Yes.
    You will also find retail prices there in a few years.
    Too many new cars, nearly all depreciate.

    Stupid question: is this to show what trade in price are today or to tell me this is what you should pay?

    Thank you!

    Got it. I guess 215K for 7800 miles and good options from a Ferrari dealer is not that bad... Thanks a lot for pushing me to pull the trigger :)

    I have not reached out today and it seems the seller is stuck at 215K. My last offer was "to split the difference in half" and trade at 207.5K to which they refused.

    Wait. Even if months, if this your pricepoint and wont move off. Otherwise I would agree to just buy and enjoy.

    We will see-- I can wait until I wake up one day after watching a chris Harris video and say, I am buying it today!

    I do really think 207.5 is a good deal for everyone on this transaction tho...

    Good reminder. That Chris Harris video. Just watched it again. So much fun. I need a race track all to myself....

    Just rewatched that video — rear end of the F12 gets better looking by the day. Look at it in that final slow motion shot as it disappears in its own tyre smoke. Last Pininfarina designed Ferrari V12... What a car.

    Have him throw in a color correction / detail (or PPF wrap) if it doesn't have one...

    Also, you can tell him you are considering another car (give him the info of a real car), and say while you would prefer this one, you are about to open up negotiations on this other car - want to give him a last shot - since you are so close in price...

    I think brightly coloured calipers such as yellow and red, really subtracts from the shape and lines of the car. Also, if you paint them yellow, they will probably not match the yellow of the shields or the center caps - Ferraris yellow calipers don't match them. This means they clash, rather than match. Not sure why Ferrari webt with a yellow caliper paint that does not match the shields, the center caps, or Giallo Modena.
    For a sports GT like the F12, I think alu or black looks the best when it comes to calipers.

    Good point

    Also the silver caliper helps with making the car that much more discreet (if that is your goal )

    I just liked the yellow against the darker grey from pictures online

    Do you plan on driving the car on track or a bit on the limit occassionally? The reason why I ask is this.

    When the alu calipers get really hot, they actually change colour. They get a slight gold'ish tinge, if one can call it that. It's actually quite beautiful. But they need to get hot, real hot. Baked like a weekend at Spa and a day or two on The Ring will bake them.

    I remember when I use to track a Subaru STI and indeed the brembo caliper changed color - one time actually caught on fire but that is a different story

    No I would not track this car
