Want to Buy a 550

If anyone is selling a 550 Maranello. Or if you know of one for sale. Please email me. I have been looking for months now an cannot seem to find a deal that is both good and fair. The dealers I have contacted want way to much and other used car dealers, I won't get into that. Now I am trying to find owners who want to sell there car. I am not a dealer. Just a Ferrari nut who has been saving a long time for he's car.
I have emailed the " car finder " guys on the site. Hopefully they can help.
1998-2001 Maranello. Silver, Red or Blue. (no Yellows or Black and no red interiors please) . Service history is important. Mileage is not that bothersome as long as the car has been looked after.
Cash buyer .

Thank you

Andy

Most 550's I've seen are on the market for a long time - you should be able to get a decent deal. What do you think of being "way too much"?

Just a little friendly advice: real bargains on 12 cylinder Ferrari's are a myth. You get what you pay for. If the car is decent, the owner will know about it, and ask for a fair price. If the owner doesn't know the current market, the likelihood of him having a decent car to sell is zero.

In the current US market, I would budget for a car that is between 110 and 120k. There are cheaper ones out there but they won't be that nice. When you are finally going to buy your dream car, do you want to get the bargain basement variety? I suggest saving up for another 6 months and getting one that is truly worth all the trouble.

Of course, that is just me - I hate bargain hunting and I look for quality. Other people get a kick out of shaving off $500 off a deal. That's fine. Just be realistic when buying a 550.
