Hi all. I've actually been seriously considering buying this car.
Apparently the cat d title was due to the theft of the vehicle in 2004, It has had a new drivers door, along with a bonnet. Looking at the car it is very straight. All panels are nice with correct gaps etc, no paint variation....
There is another down side, there is no service history. Simply a key, a v5 & a current mot cert.
I'm not too concerned about the history as I hope that Maranello in Egham can verify some much needed service history. If it turns out there is no history, is it worth asking a cheeky offer? It is REALLY cheap already, but then again it could be a nightmare waiting to happen.
It will be my 1st Ferrari, is a 550 a good place to start? I'm 29, have a well paid job & the 550 is the only car I've ever said I wanted. My aim was to have one by my 30th, which is 3 months away.
Anyone ave an idea of servicing? Problem areas? Tyre costs?
I anticipate doing approx 2000 miles per year.
