New Guy

Hello All, I found this site in a effort to receive help in my first Ferrari purchase. From what I have gathered, many others have done the same with every one receiving great support and help from a great group of enthusiast! It is comforting to see the quality and genuine help without a bunch of inappropriate drama in responses, hence why I joined. Well done ALL!!

To start I don't even know if this where I should say what Im needing nor do I understand how forums work apologies to all.

So, I am in the market for a 430 and am overwhelmed with information in the variations each car as well changes made by year and changes needed to each car (in terms of parts like if the exhaust manifold was changed) that I'm in complete confusion of what to look for in a purchase. I see there is many pre-inspection guides and talk of what is in and not in these guides. Being so naïve to all of this. I am wondering is there company or individual that for a fee will help in deciphering what to buy? Like if I could find a car and send the information they could see what is done or needs to be done... and for maybe just look for a car for me and then discuss when one is found the pros and cons of what the car my need?

I hope to get into your world and be able to help others once I begin to learn and understand this unique and amazing group of owners and enthusiast .

Thank you all,

I am afraid that I con't offer any useful help, David, as I know little or nothing about 430s and I am guessing you are in the USA(?), whereas I am in the UK, but I wish you luck with your purchase.

There are one or two guys on this forum who are in the trade, so they may be able to help source a suitable car for you.

Best wishes, John

Welcome to the site. I did a whole write-up on when I purchased my F430. There should be my thread and others in the archives.

-good luck
