Jon- Welcome to Ferrari Life. Kind of quiet here tonight with the three day weekend, so you should get some more hits tomorrow. It should be possible to order a 458 at MSRP, you just go pretty far down the list of people who want to order one. There are plenty of used Californias around and you may be able to strike a deal on a trade for a 458 or 458 Spider if that is what you want, but the wait will be long for the Spider, like they told you. There are a lot of Ferrari dealers in California and I would hit them all if I were you, just like you are doing.
You will enjoy the California while you have it. Most owners have been very pleased with the car. If you do get one, try and find one with the magnetic shocks. Better ride and handling, so a good deal for $5K when new.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
