575 belt service/ f1 actuator
Maybe I can give some input 575 being sold by Hoffman Porsche/Audi in Hartford . It was originally by Miller Motors for $224,000. Took car as trade in on Porsche. Marcia the sales gal says interior still intact and not separating.
Second had car for about 7 years. Had last performed by Ferrari of New England in February 2013. This included fluids ,flushing and belt service for 15000 mile service.
The tech who did the service at dealer noted "dampness around F1 actuator.
Owner did not pursue this and also was supposed to replace tires.
No mention of exhaust gasket condition or loose manifold by technician.
I have copies of original MSRP and last service performed. Owner spent $6500 on service.
This specimen has been on my short list also. But have info and willing to share.
Called Josh at ECS to review last service. He says need the PPI to ascertain whether there are issues with F! actuator. Repairs could run $4000 and up. I have read complete trans rebuild could be $15k..
Also these cars have history of issues with steering assembly seals going. Replace is about $6500.
Given price of car I would think $5000 off selling price for negotiation and then at $80,000 deduct repair issues. Worst case $4000 + for actuator if needed , manifold gaskets, loose brackets, etc.
So $80,000 less $4000 gives about $76000 or less to cover repairs.
Before that I think dealer might just wholesale rather take price discount.
This long Porsche dealer so may very well be tough negotiator.
By the way Naples, Fl has three high exotic car dealers all selling Ferraris and there is a Maserati dealer that gets Ferrari tradeins.
I was at Naples Autosports and they have several interesting 575's...3 in different greys.
Blackhorse motors in Naples has a red/tan 2002 575 for $115,000, 17k in miles and several owners including one that owned the car for 5+ years. Servicing performed by Manfred's Automotive in Naples. Did belt change in March 2012.
There are some others I am following in my hunt. I find very good prices at Jakes and Ferrari of Washington has tradeins on vehicles they have serviced. Depending on vehicle, lots of service records.
I coordinate with Josh at ECS to do PPI. Washington's prices may not be the lowest but these are consignment cars and often owners will accept reasonable offer. Consequently, their cars turn over in 3-4 weeks sometimes sooner.
When I find my ride, would appreciate advice from forum ,especially Taz, I am finding attractive 575's but keep running into maintenance issues where owners do not attend to vehicle needs. Some defer the maintenance
