On the way to FL to close deal on 458
Hey Guys,

So my buddy and I get on a plane today at 5PM and head to FL to close the deal on his first Ferrari, 2013 458.

He is 64 and I'm sure he is going to love the car.

It will be one of maybe 3 total 458's in Buffalo so that will be cool too. We now have maybe 20 Ferrari's total in this area.

We go to the dealer tomorrow so I will post some photos then. :)

3 458's in my area as well. 458 coupe, 458 Spyder, and a Speciale'. We have only about 8 total Ferrari's in my area.

Hopefully deal goes smoothly good luck.

Hey Guys,

So we went to Ferrari of Fort Lauderdale on Friday and closed the deal.

2013 458 Italia, 47xx miles. The car is mint.

I must say, I cannot believe how this car drives - I am blown away!! I drove it in manual and auto and the performance is amazing and words cannot describe it.

My buddy is having the dealer handle clear bra installation (full hood, mirrors and rocker panels) and he may have them paint the calipers. They are a matte finish now and we are waiting to see how well the clean up.

This is nearly a new car.

Yes, 330 GT 2+2, second series (first series had slightly awkward quad headlamps).

Congrats. Cannot see interior stitching, guessing black? Might consider yellow calipers, in gloss. Matte finish is a pain, especially when the rest of the car is a gloss paint.
