    On Mobile.de, the year is posted as "First year registered." I have seen more than one car that are way off their model year and once asked a dealer about it and he just said that was the year it was registered.

    Just for a market update my buddy just bought a beautiful 1990 with 13,000 miles.. 2 yrs left on the belts for $125. Needs fluids swapped and light tune up and tires. So call it $130 before hitting the road.

    I would buy a clean tr that’s due for a major instead of one just done

    Bet he won’t sell that car for $200 if it’s a clean car

    I’d remove the third brake light. Looks weird.

    Natkingcolebasket69, I have a 88 1/2 tr that I have had Ferrari Los Angeles go over the car front to back. I was asking if I should do the major service since it has not been done since 2015 and only 500 miles ago and they said it is recommended , but the mechanic said everything looked fine. You would be going down a rabbit hole if you did. The service advisor told me the major cost around $12k then the water pump would be another $3k and the clutch would be $7-10K. They just sold a red/black 91 with 10 kmi on it and the service bill was $70,000. I have no idea what they did for that kind of money.
    No one mentioned to me the fuse box or the diff. What does that entail?

    but then there will be holes to fill with body filler and repaint but agree, would look better without it

    Not sure why I’m tagged in it lol

    That being said I just did my major on my 9k 90tr which had not been done in 7 years and it did cost me $20k.

    As nice as it is, if u are going for the ultimate collector there is still room for improvement if this doesn’t have luggage and classiche (not that I value it)

    wouldn't a collector also prefer a non-federalized euro model?
    to me at least that'd be more important than luggage and classiche, but I'm not a
    collector (would want to drive it), so also wouldn't pay crazy money for super low miles.

    Not in the US in my experience… American folks want American cars it seems.

    From first hand experience required by law or not, stickers in door jambs or anywhere else are almost never done. Have never once even heard of a notarized form being generated.

    That's interesting, as personally I prefer a Euro/Swiss model without the mouse belts, and would have assumed most agree.

    But I was following up specifically to your comments re: how the federalized Euro car on BaT could be better: would a collector not prefer one imported under the 25 year rule and not federalized to the one on BaT? (all other factors the same)

    Trust me, Americans are all about us cars.
    U can get a 355gts in Europe for like 120k or a 94tr for maybe 150k…
    They may be better looking and nicer too but they just don’t value as much in the us

    Natkingcole, you are probably right, but i specifically bought my euro 512 tr for the the color and no mouse belts. I think it is changing with demand. Most buyers are not aware that euro cars don't have mouse belts.

    Im not advocating for US cars, just the price is generally cheaper for a euro car hère is all I’m saying;))

    Based on what I have seen, around 50 to 75K more

    A similar, If more extreme, difference is seen for the F512M, where the difference can be Over 100,000+

    I think that people that aren't familiar with these cars would want a US spec car if in the US, but once one gets familiar with the cars, the Euro car does have a couple of pluses. I agree about the mouse belts, but my 1990 and 1991 TR's both have the big bulky crash pad under the dash. IT's big and frankly I don't know what it accomplishes, other than taking away ROOM for your legs. I had my 1986 Swiss car for six months before I realized what made it seem more spacious. The bumpers and the lights are no big deal, but the crash pad certainly is. Doing any dash work means the big bulky thing needs to be removed- just more work.

    OK, but can you answer the question I posed?

    Federalized Euro testarossa currently on BaT vs same car imported more recently under 25 year rule and not federalized?

    Great, another advantage I wasn't even aware of! I've been in a couple US 512TRs, but the Swiss one I'm buying is not here yet.

    350 likely but on BAT only.
    For following the tr markets for as long as I have I can tell u that the prices we are seeing on BAT, whilst I’m happy for them as an owner, are not what dealers get or people pay for in private sales. That’s why we see so many on there z
