430 spider help

Hi, I am new to the Ferrari scene. Yesterday I drove my first ferrari and I was amazed as to how it drives. I am thinking about buying this current F430 spider. What should I be looking for in person with these cars? Does anyone know anything about this specific car?

Welcome to the forum Zalfor.
I suggest you read the Buyers Guide, it will tell you the majore points to look for Also, you can search in the Modern V8 section, where there are plenty of posts discussing the 430.
The car looks very well appointed and in good shape. I will say the gray dash and steering wheel is an unusual combo. It may limit the resale demand a bit. But if you like it, that's all that matters.
Careful of the Ferrari bug, when it bites, there's no known cure!

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

Before I got my 430 (and 355 before that), I've read about header issues, sticky switches, clutch and F1 concerns, service history and a few other things, but no one forewarned me about the "Ferrari bug" ... you're right, there is no cure when it bites!

Good luck in your search Zalfor!

unfortunately the ferrari bug has already caught on.

i wasn't planning on buying a car this year, but this has been constantly on my mind ever since i drove that car. Does anyone have any advice on this particular car? It seems on the high side given the mileage and the interior is a little worn.
