I've just bought an excellent 550 in Holland in June, and in fact, I live only 15kms from Amsterdam's city centre. I'm not there often, as I work in West Africa, but I'm in Holland again soon (early Sep). We could try and set something up if you want.
I've seen the 365 at Maranello (on the website) and was flirting with the idea of owning one (the blue one's lovely), but I really wanted something more reliable for my first Ferrari. Next year, maybe
Boxer is not quite correct in his price estimate; it's right on the money for Germany but Holland is different. Due to taxation laws in Holland, you must really stretch beyond 90k Euro for a good Maranello, and a really nice one is more (mine was over 100k). You can import a car from Germany which will save you money, but it will also hurt you a little on resale. It is also risky to import a car, as you will have little or no recourse in case something goes wrong. If you buy from an official dealer in Germany you can opt for the Power warranty, which apparently is transferable between Ferrari dealers, but buying from a private individual is risky. Even so, dealers are no guarantee. There's a red one at an official dealer which actually is not as advertised (a friend of mine went to check it last week and was quite shocked). If you look at cars at official dealers you will quickly see very few below 85k, even in Germany. Importing into Holland, you then have to add a minimum of 3% of special car tax (BPM) for '97, 98 cars, and more for younger cars (there's a sliding scale). This 3% is on the original sale price of EUR254,000! So that comes to a minimum of just under 7,000 euro. If you decide to import, it is cheapest to go for a low mileage '97 or early '98 example. Eberlein had a 5000km 1997 Nero Daytona that I almost bought. That one came to 92k delivered to my door. I believe that car has been sold.
I've put about 50 cars that were for sale the last 7 months, all over Europe, into a spreadsheet which I'm happy to send to you. It gives you a great insight into running costs, importing taxes, and prices.
Finally, you should make a point of visiting Alex Jansen of Forza Service in Oss. Everyone that I have met vouches for him, and I can only verify what a pleasure it's been to deal with him. He can find a good car for you, but you will need to pay a bit more. What you pay for is complete ease of mind - he simply will not sell you a dud, or if he would, he would rectify his mistake.
Hope this helps a bit. E-mail me if you want to know more or receive the spreadsheet.
