    After almost 2 years searching (kicking tires) and making a few offers I found what I though was the right car for me. I had several key options but first and foremost were race seats. As others have mentioned they are not easy to come by. I’m a bit surprised that more don’t exist, I find them quite comfortable and they sure look better IMO. This car is unbelievable. What a huge jump up from a 911 (991). I’ve driven around town a bit but have yet to get it out on a long drive. I’m pleasantly surprised how tame it is when your just driving around, but a beast when you want it to be. As for the looks, even non Ferrari or non car people comment that it’s a stunning car but not overly obnoxious, though I’m still trying to convince my wife of that!

    Stats:
    2014, 3,5xx miles, full carbon, front lift, rear camera, race seats, PPF on front 1/3, Michelin pss, Ferrari certified with 2 yr warranty.

    Finally, want to give give a quick shout out to everyone on the forum. If I had not been on this I would have really felt uneducated and unprepared for my purchase. I just can’t say enough about how helpful this forum is. Also, to the several people who I’ve pm’d with just asking questions, thank you! You guys didn’t know me from Adam but without hesitation engaged in conversation.

    Now for some pics....

    It is Nero paint, in the right light it almost has a very dark gray look. The Grigio stitching is nice, sets it off just enough.

    Thanks for the comments.

    did you get the 2nd year warranty free as part of their sales promotion from dealers?

    The car was certified from the previous owner which they had a two year extended warranty. When I bought the car there was some time left from the previous warranty so the dealer just kicked it out so I have a full two years. Hopefully I won’t need it but it sure made me feel a lot better about the purchase.

    Well done. I looked a long time for a good spec with race seats and couldn’t find one.

    The steering wheel is manual, not a big deal, adjust once and rarely need to adjust again.

    To my knowledge the race seats are all manual, though the rear back rest is auto. Mine also has the seat lifter (manual) which is nice, otherwise the height is virtually not adjustable except with a set of tools.

    Nero or Nero Daytona? Love the carbon. Amazing ride. Love my 16 Nero as well but less carbon. About to go 812 SF. These cars are so much prettier and are a beast.


    Drive it well.

    Where are you located?
