Ferrari newbie, need help with 360 Modena
I am interested in buying my first Ferrari. The only one i would consider is a 2002 - 04 360 Modena. I think it might be the nicest car i've ever seen. (i like it better than the next generation F-430)
I spoke to my local dealer, who happens to be a friend of a very close friend of mine so i think his advice is genuine, but he is still a "salesman". He basically scared me away from buying a 360 because of it's age, and that many things can go wrong with it like blowing an F-1 pump, (i think that's what he meant) and that if that were to happen, it would be a $20k bill. He said his dealership doesnt even touch a used Ferarri pre-2006. He also persuaded me to stay away from a particular color of a specific car i have my eye on because if it ever needed to be painted or touched up, it would be impossible to match. (The color i like is the light blue)
Since this is my first endeavor, my thought would be to try and find one with less than 10,000 miles on it, with all recent service done including a new clutch, and a PPI. I would hope that in the event i did not like it, or wanted to sell it, i would only lose about 10k after a year.
Any advice? Am on the right track a completely going in the wrong direction?
