I'm afraid the car failed the PPI miserably. 3 of the 4 tie rods were bent, headers were never done, AC was broke and needed to be replaced, roof was broke, all four tires were completely bald and starting to bubble, numerous parts were cracked, dried or rotten (the car had sat in the sun baking for something like two years). What a bloody shame.
To even get the car to pass a safety was going to be a MINIMUM of $16,000. Then fixing the AC, replacing the headers, etc. was going to be more.
To be honest, I became very disillusioned by the whole Ferrari ownership thing. Either I was looking at a car with high miles, low price, but needing me to spend lots of money in repairs just to get it up to snuff or I was looking at a car that cost a heck of a lot more, had very low miles and often 5-6 owners - which really bothers me. When a 7 year old car has had 6 owners, you begin to get concerned....or at least I do.
So, on Friday, I bought a 2015 Porsche 911 GTS cabriolet. In the future, I may revisit Ferrari again.
