The 400 series including the "i" never endeared many people and they are ticking time bombs.
There are tons of things that can go wrong.
They are nice cars with 12 healthy cylinders, but you should know that you could spend more on that car fixing problems then you would have spent to buy the car. If you can do the work you'll need a W/S manual and a lot of time.
There ahs been one for sale for months in Autoweek by a "dealer" in Michigan. I called him about it 6 months ago. he said he was a dealer for 40+ years and never saw such a nice car. What's he smoking.
I asked for photos or a web site and he said he had neither! He said he's send regular pictures! That was 6 months ago. They must have been lost in the mail.
I woudl be very careful. Also in this market, $30K for that car is outrageous. it should be in the high teens or very low 20's!
Good luck with that.
You also might want to pay attention to the ad. It says "red leather"! It looks like light tan or sabbia to me from the photos. Think the seller really knows anything about this car? It's list as a 456GT!
I would say this is a bogus ad.
