That nice Black one at FofSF. Saw it about four weeks ago.
In CA a CA writeoff might make sense for a ad agency. Shoot, he could drum up a shoot and write of quite a bit to make it more legal
IRS is no fool these days to blingy writeoffs. IIRC, I though I had to list my depreciation schedule and even name the car, but can't remember. They can get very anal on what is legal: thinking the ol' home office thing and all.
--leave that for the CPAs-- I never get into doing my taxes and leave that to experts.
as for leasing, well I stick by the needs, and desired results. I am truly guessing this agency guy, will not be keeping the car for long and probably has figured a way to get the car, write off some, and then not be bothered with the tail end: makes for true way to go, especially, specifically, since no one, no one, knows what issues are luring in the CA...I Know, knowing Ferraris trackrecord, even though a better company did the top, that the tops on F-cars are terrible...no matter the model. I would expect that to go first.
The mechanics are proven, but not on this example so, stay tuned....I expect warranty and other issue repairs.
Getting the car from Boardwalk, will be a good way to go....they have to pony up, and know of one issue, last year IIRC when FofSF sold a 456 that had its engine go toastie a couple months later: Boardwalk is ponying up and that car will be on the road again under 'warranty'.....
If there is more, specifics you are looking for, what are they? Costs of what period, or other issues. Let us know so we can yack about it.
