Doug, the car is a 13 but delivered in 12. That said, it is a 2 year old car. Yes, tons of 458's on the market but as you know, lots of different colors and options. There are only 3 that fit what my buddy wants and those are not perfect fits (caliper color, etc). The car in question is also on consignment so that's another issue.
From my research it seems the figure we came to is fair. Not a seal but fair. Car also have warranty until December.
No worries, it's all good.
It's fairly easy to figure out. Look on Ebay, and Autotrader.com and see what the asking prices are compared to orignal MSRP.
I think depreciation is closer to 10k per year, plus $2.00 / mile, not 10% per year. So after 1 year my 2013 458 with a MSRP of 288k would be selling for 276k asking. Believe trade in value I was offered 250k.
If he wants a cheaper price, then go with a 2010 or 2011, but you would not get the free 7 years maintenance, but you would get the pre-2012 software cars, with the better sounding exhaust.
