    Yesterday Friday Sept 25, 2020, was an awesome day went to Ferrari San Francisco and spent four hours spec'ing my new 812 GTS. It's an amazing experience, you learn allot during the process.
    The only bad part was getting the total! UGH! Oh well I have expensive tastes.
    Still working on the final choices list (Wheels, Alcantara Head Liner, Titanium Exhaust tips)
    I'll post the complete spec when it's finalized.

    Sounds like you knew exactly what you wanted!
    I learned a lot about the process, and that the 812 GTS is considered a completely different car (in Ferrari's eye) than the 812 Superfast.
    And you have to make change to get things the way you want (Long Story, it's easier to show on the car than explain all the little details).
    My sales person was extremely knowledgable and guided us through the process making sure everything was the way we wanted.

    How is the car seen differently in Ferrari’s eyes? Did you have a confirmed build slot or are you on a waitlist?

    Avia11,
    Here's an example- I wanted the wheels that the Superfast has in most of the ads, and I wanted the titanium Lugs. I was told that those wheels are only available on the Superfast and the GTS is a different car and those wheels are not available on the GTS. Also the Titanium Lugs are only available on the Racing Wheels and will not work on the other wheels.
    I said ok, I don't want to rock the boat (This is the First time I've Spec'd a Ferrari). If I want Superfast wheels I would have to buy them separately and add them myself.
    I don't have a confirmed build slot yet, but I did give them a deposit or what they call a "GTS Specification Fee".
    My plan is/was to start the process in January and get a car in March/April of 2022.

    Advertising ? never saw any advertising for ferrari... What wheels are talking about exactly ? Did you check the online configurator before ? There's already a lot of information, about for exemple, the wheels available

    And yes those are two different models, each one with its own options. I understand you thought everything for the SF was available for the GTS but it's not the case, Ferrari often does that

    Exemple; the CF wheels available for the Pista weren't available for the Pista spider until recently

    Yep. I got a call from my local dealer stating that I got a confirmed 2022 car as well. Should be interesting.
