    The point is the manufacturers purposefully have a low entry level to entice people in (no matter what ‘level’) and make the options almost a necessity. I have heard stories of people not being able to buy Ferrari’s if there isn’t ‘x’ amount of options on them.
    I always work on a 10% rule of thumb on options costs relative to the list price. Much of what people put on Ferraris’ is just shite to massage their egos. Anyway buy used and it doesn’t matter.

    Totally agree. A used buy with the right spec is a no brainer.
    The only new Italian car I would be tempted by is an early portofino. But I think I will
    Be able to resist.

    Me, and a few others. I'm not a fan of carbon wheels and prefer the look and feel of alcantara. Nor the chavy shields. Coloured calipers I dont mind, but prefer silver or black. Parking sensors are ugly and unnecessary for where/how I drive and park. I don't like tech stuff either, so no head-up displays, lane departure warnings, blind spot warnings, etc for me, thank you. I like my Ferraris to be plain, simple, beaituful and brilliant. Give me a standard 355 over an Essex/Cheshire spec 458 every time.

    That said, I'm not actively looking at the new or nearly new Ferrari market and appreciate that things may be different in that marketplace.

    Don see many carbon wheels on any car do you ? Acquired taste ....... More leather out there than Carbon steering wheels when you look through the classifieds. Yhink it's the feeling in your hands...Most still like the grip of leather it seems.

    the carbon on ferrari wheels is mainly for the leds as you know, not the look.
    you won't see many at all for sale without - and if they are there is a serious price drop.
    agree re alcantara, techy stuff and 355s though!
    i need parking sensors when parking in new spaces or car parks.. thats more of a necessity rather than a luxury

    Thats the point, there are two types of Ferrari buyers and I can guess easily which type you fall into.

    Judging by my visits to the main dealers there are lots of types! But one staple...
    That’s the beauty of maserati buyers. A massive range but all appreciate the (old) essence of the brand.

    The point I was meaning is that Ewan strikes me as the type who wants the car rather than the garnish and he is to be applauded in that. IMHO too many people are buying the image and the toys rather than the basic amazing mid engined V8 supercar.
