Ferrari 430 to look for.

Hi guys, what accessories came with the F430,

interested in a mid 2008 spider, only 2000miles.

Car is like new and services all up to date, but I don't see any tools, pouches, cases, etc, need to know what to ask for if you can help me out..



cheers
Johnny

I think you are looking at this car purchase the wrong way. A 7 year old car with only 2,000 miles means that car has sat for long periods of time and not run and exercised. Dried out seals and bearings can be a REALLY bad thing. Personally, I would care less of the cheesy tool kit but would be more worried about the car itself. Get a PPI, then use the missing accessories as a bargaining tool.

the car was driven on weekends for dining with his wife mostly short distances, this is not a 308 that sat in a storage for 10 years because the owner got bored with the car.

this car is prestine and yearly serviced at Ferrari. no dry seals or bearings, hahaha, the owner (first owner) have a few Ferraris and other car he takes care of...ie he knows how to look after cars - and

surely I can get da better answer

Johnny,
If it's like the 360, it should have had a full set of user manuals, tire inflator (Maybe the optional spare?), tool kit, seat covers, and a car cover.
You'd also have to check the sticker for options such as a battery charger..

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

Johnny,
Didn't you just get your first Ferrari in the last 6 months? Now you looking to buy a 2nd one? Just curious and good for you if you can.

Hi Kim, no I have my 328 for almost 4 years and I love it ! I had another before for almost 2 years which was my first.

What made you think I had my 328 for 6 months ? haha LOL

look at my older posts from 2011 and 2012 - Under Pre-purchase help there's a thread called Late 89...

anyway Kim, I see you have a F430 !

cheers

Oh, and another thing, if it is a spider, it had a little vinyl pouch in which to store the wind deflector.
I think the 430 also had a Ferrari embossed flashlight in the tool kit.
Funny how many of those seem to go missing....
