Should I trade my 2002 575M for a 2006 F430?
I own a 2002 Argento Nurburgring Ferrari 575M Maranello with the F1 transmission and 37000 miles on the odometer (59000 kms). I have the opportunity to trade it in for a 2006 Argento Nurburgring Ferrari F430 with manual tranny and 22,000 kms (13600 miles) on the odometer. Admittedly, they are completely different cars, however, my reasoning for the consideration is that I would get a newer Ferrari with less mileage and a manual which I would prefer. At the same time, some have told me that its not a wise move as the 575 will shortly be worth more than the F430's (production numbers, 2000 vs 15000 cars made, and the fact that its a V12 vs a V8 may be the reasons). What are your views? Here are the 2 cars:
P.S. The interior photo of my 575 is from before I installed longer Carbonio Carbon Fibre paddles which are much nicer and better for shifting.
