    Had nothing to do today (pretty much like everyday) so decided to make a trip to Ferrari Maserati of Central New jersey..

    met the staff, Christopher Miele in sales, Ralph in service and Enzo the tech

    first impression, fantastic facility, very spacious and very well equipped

    Stradale had a couple of problems, passenger side door wouldnt open and CE light had come on a couple of days earlier, Enzo fixed them free of charge on the spot

    Chris is a fantastic guy, spent a lot of time talking to him, straight shooter, no BS, hes checking fchat pretty frequently and wants us to do a run there very soon, honestly one of the best salesmen i have dealt with

    In short, FoCNJ is going to be getting my business in the future, we should definetely do a run out there, especially after certain 'issues' we all have had with other service spots, if you want a place to buy a 430, this is it, for me at least

    Good to know. Where are they, and how far are they from the city?

    I thought the idea was to plan a run to them once they had officially opened, which I believe was to be in September. Any further clarity on this?

    When do you leave to go back to U, U?

    Leavin Saturday afternoon Vik..

    They're opening officially soon ( i dont remember when exactly ), grand opening later on, but I dont see any reason why we cant visit there now, pretty much everything is in place

    About 40 minutes from my place, I'd say an hour from the city

    Hey Vik, it's a nice run from the city down the NJTPK to exit 9 and then to the facility. Without traffic it should be under an hour from NYC. I'm looking forward to seeing this place. BTW U, do you know if they are taking orders for the 430 yet? I might know a couple of guys who are interested. Hint Hint. ;-)

    Edison, NJ. With no traffic you are looking at 30-45 minutes. 30 min. the way you guys drive.

    Sounds like a plan. We should coordinate with Chris to make a run down there once they are ready and open.

    Now I had it right the whole time. The Greenwich was a fun run even though we did not go over 100MPH and most of the time it was around 70MPH.

    Yes, I spoke with him as well about it. He said that they are not going to be able to take deposits until the car has officially been announced. The reason he could not take deposits until then is because they are a publicly traded company and if they did this and something went wrong this could be VERY bad for their company and shareholders. We all know the worse that could happen; especially Hubert.

    Makes sense to me. I thought I had heard, though, that certain other FChat members had put deposits down for a 430 with their respective dealers. Was this a European phenomenon, or are some dealers just helping out their "best" customes on the sly?

    Dealers that are not publicly traded can have lists before the car before it is offically announced.

    Affiliated with United Auto Group; UAG. Just looked up in the computer. Here it is:

    "On to our Spotlight Stock. Based in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., United Auto Group saw Penske Corp. snatch 357,123 of its shares in mid-February for $10.5 million ($29.49 per share). Penske Corp. is a privately held transportation-services company whose namesake, Roger Penske, is Chief Executive and Chairman of United Auto. The purchase brings Penske Corp.'s total position in United Auto to 19.4 million shares.

    Roger Penske noted in a Feb. 17 press release that Penske Corp. has invested $212 million in United Auto since 1999. "As I look forward, I am excited about United Auto's growth potential," he gushed."
