I've been lurking for awhile but decided it was time to jump in since I'm getting pretty close to picking an F430.
I'm moving from an 2011 R8 V10 that I bought new, so I'm not familiar with PPI and the like since my last couple cars have been brand new and haven't required it.
I'm in Madison, WI and found these couple semi-local cars and would love the input of the group on which way they'd go or additional insight on things to look for.
2006 F1 Spider 2500 mi Red/Black
Optioned with Daytonas, lots of carbon fiber and leather choices (both seemed optioned very similarly in this regard)
Tubi exhaust installed (not sure if just cat back or includes headers but would imagine just cat back
Said to be one owner - haven't seen the carfax yet but no reason to believe otherwise yet.
Listed for 169,900 but now at 154500 in negotiations
2007 F1 Spider 9500 miles Red/Tan
Similarleather/carbon options with power seats, as above
Also said to be one owner
Listed for 159000 with recent price drop to 150000, has deposit on car but may fall through tomorrow so would be up for grabs again.
I feel like Car 1 is the better option, but I'm somewhat worried about only 2500 miles. I plan to get a PPI at Autosprint so hopefully they can point out any maintenance issues, but given your experience, what do you guys think?
