    I posted this in the 550 section also.

    I posted my 550 with Fiorano package here at Ferrari ads, but was curious where you guys think would be good. If you have thought on pricing, I'd love to hear it.

    It is a Euro with docs. I have the DOT paperwork and service records going pack to the orrig receipt in Europe.

    All books, Keys, tools

    1999
    It has 29k miles
    Black on Black with Gray piping
    Full Factory Fiorano Package
    250 GTE Shelf
    Carbon Fiber
    New leather (Dash and seats)
    Integrated Valentine One Mirror
    McIntosh Audio

    The car is listed to $84k is this the right price? (serious answers only please).

    Where else should I post it?

    How about Michael Sheehan? Bryan just listed his 365 there.

    I did Bryan's photoshoot to Michael Sheehan's very exacting standards. I sent the photos is and they had difficulty with the raw images. Guess who called me back? Carbon (NNO) of all people. He now works for Mr Sheehan.

    regards

    My worst case Scenario is I sell my awesome 550, and the 575 HGTC I'm after get's sold. I can't afford to have both, so we'll see how it goes.

    John,

    I know we've all been around the block on these for price. I shopped for a 550 about 6 months ago so I have some fairly recent experience.

    Your car is fantastic looking, well maintained, I'm sure, but $84K for a Euro car is just too much money. US cars are maybe in the $80's, Euros, even great ones, are bound to be selling for less.

    I don't know where your car should be, but there's a '97 US car on FerrariAds for ~60K with a fresh major. It's not as attractive a color combo, by far, but the $20K difference seems like a lot for a Euro car to overcome.

    I'd suggest, with respect, that your car is probably a $65K car. Maybe a little more, and that at $84K it's gonna sit, and sit, and sit.

    Again, I dabbled in the market in the Spring, so my price experience may be a little dated.

    Mike Sheehan is not the only person who can sell Ferraris although he seems to do it well.
