    I know prices have been on the rise. Can anyone offer some recent sales, not asking, prices?
    I see the black/bl one on ebay which looks to be a very nice car, asking $115. Is that a fair price in your opinion?
    Would red/tan bring more money?
    Appreciate any feedback from any owners or others who have been following the market closely.

    It still takes a nice car to break $100K, IMO....it's a Market that has a pretty big spread in it right now.

    Color is always a personal choice, but a red/tan I suppose is at the top of the market.

    But a white one on here looks great, and Alex is restoring his in a beautiful blue.....a black one is gonna be very hot to operate in the summer due to large glass areas and marginal A/C...

    HTH....good luck!

    BBis are setting the upper price curve on 512s, but the carbed 512s are my favorite.......actually the 365BB is a higher price curve also, a whole different market!

    John,

    The trouble is that Boxers are pretty hefty $$ maintenence wise, so a car well sorted and in current use is probably well worth $20K to $30K over an IDENTICAL one coming out of slumber, see my point???

    WooHOOOO !!!! Resale Red. On a Ferrari. Nothing like shootin' for rarity, uniqueness, and above all - any anti-cliche color.

    Nope, not even close.
    :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

    Seriously, some of us seek-out the non-cliche (lots of F-cars are Red? Gee, never noticed). Even Black approaches the border, but is a beautiful non-red choice. May even add another one sometime, against my experienced judgement (Black is a tough color here in sun-baked Texas).

    The BIN price is a bit steep, but I've thought about this one more than a couple of times since Bobileff had it (it had just sold when I called), and couple of times since msgsobe posted it here. Sounds like a good car in need of the right price to find the right buyer.

    Call and make a "I'll take it right now at $XXX" offer.
    The Boxer group is a little different, but as Cosby once said in a story, "Come on in....the water's fine."

    A nice BB sold 2 months ago in Connecticut for 105. Service needed.
    I hear one sold for that same amount in TX about 2 weeks ago. Service needed as well.
    I actually prefer the 512BB to the 365 and BBi.
    The rule of thumb is to get the first or last but in my Boxer world the middle is best.
    BTW the train is leaving the station. Last year they were 20 to 30k cheaper. Ask me how I know.

    Had her for a while now..(see my post "wanted 512BBi" post from a year ago) Got a million responses..lots of help from the guys that are on the chat all the time.....couldn't be happier with her--but buying one now kinda gets your attention, with most if not all over 100 big ones....

    Have some other pics of her getting a clutch and after a Zaino detail....(see previous posts)---
