Went to see my potential purchase today, and...
Further to my first post below, I went to see the Red Ferrari F430 F1 Spider for the first time today. Weather conditions meant that neither the dealer or myself really wanted to test drive the car, the rain and sleet was absolutely pelting down, so not ideal.
I could not fault the car. It was absolutely and utterly MINT and like new. Just over 1,000 miles, and like it left the showroom brand new in 2007.
I saw the service history, which was perfect, had its PDI plus a couple of minor recalls. Then a service in November 2009. One owner vehicle supplied by the dealer now selling it on behalf of the initial client.
My first time even sitting in a Ferrari. My initial thought was that there wasn't a great deal of headroom with the roof up - but the more I moved the seat around and played, the more comfortable it become. Roof down, no problem.
Price wise, I can't find any better. Condition is perfect, remainer of Ferrari warranty until May 2011.
So what's not to like?
Well I left the dealer and said I'd let him know for sure in the morning. My heart says go for it - my head is telling me that maybe, just maybe, I'll find the driving experience (from a seating point of view) uncomfortable.
Remember, I'm coming out of a Range Rover Vogue! And the fear is that in a month I'll be thinking "why did I do this?"...
Any comments as to the comfort / seating position?
