I have found my car....I think!

I found a 2000 360 Modena that has everything I have been looking for. I have asked all the questions that you guys have advised me on and there is one problem. The seller only has 1 key for the car. I know that this is not a good thing. What exactly does this mean? Thanks!

Congrats, first. Well, maybe the owner wants to keep a set for his own as memento ? You can ask what happened, at least. Nevertheless, I do not think it is such a big deal to make a new set. w/ smiles Jimmy

they can be duplicated, but ask for either a replacement or discount as he should provide such for the sale.

BUT, IF it's the one of your dreams, duplicating the remote can be done: Is it the red or black one? Might want to consider this: http://www.ferrarilife.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9658

it simply means he lost one. So what? I can tell you that if all you are fretting over a single key, you must have a pretty good car there and you should buy it before someone else does. My lambo didn't even come with the remote and i had to drive it home with the alarm going off. The replacement cost me $600. My Ferrari also only came with one key. I don't get it.

You can have a generic key made up for next to nothing. How many remotes do you have?

Bought a few from this place---Just send them a hi-rez pic of the key and they can cut you a few---Had 3 made for my car....

I understand it's a single key, but isn't it worthy of some consideration on the seller's part? Then again, it is a minor cost I guess in the scope of things. I was thinking more on the line of Greg's post where cost was not small.

I would worry if the key remote is not the master red one. From this one, keyed remotes can be easily made. There are threads about some people able to make copies without apparently having to reprogram ECU's. I would worry about the linage of ownership of the car with not having the red remote pass along. If you can truly verify service records with receipts to know number of owners and work done and the reason for no red remote then it becomes less of a concern. You are right to wonder.

A new key on a 360 will run you about $100 from Ferrari. Also it is important to get both black remotes and the red master remote.
