Itīs an F40 adjustable suspension a must when buying one?

Need opinions!
Or is it more important low milage?
If you have to pick between a low milage but with non- adjust or a 20k milage but with adjustable suspension which one would you pick?

IMHO, if you intend to use frequently on the road, then yes.

Pablo generally without cats is better as the cats on the F40 potentially cause heating and power restricting (outflow) problems. (According to my mechanic).

Pablo, F40 without cats are not alloud in Switzerland...only exception: When somebody lived in Germany (or else abroad), had a non-cat F40 and then decided to move to Switzerland and live there for at least 12 month. In that case he brought his assets (like his clothes) to Switzerland and was alloud to use and register it here. Therefore all non-cat F40's have been brought from abroad as the F40 never was homologated officially in Switzerland without cat.

Good point! Thanx!
That means that if i have an F40 non-cat and decide to move to Switzerland , since i have the right to bring into the country my assets this Ferrari would come in as is! Right?

Since i am moving to switzerland i have the oportunity to bring in the cars as my personal belongs and pay no tax on them. I want to take the oportunity to buy the F40 and the F50
Do you think on the F40 i can install an adjustable suspension just for the speed bumps instead of buying one with it. I ask because without it are a lot less expensive
What is your opinion?

Prices on F40s with and without the adjustable suspension are about the same.

Trying to write from my mobile: no pablo, i did not say you will pay no taxes bringing belongings to switzerland ! Actually i do not know those rules taxwise. However i just said that non cat f40's are not allowed, except brought in as personal belongings in case that very f40 has been mot'ed in the country where it (you) come from.

anywhere I could find more details about it?

Aren't you trying to move to Switzerland? Since F40's have to have cats there, I thought I mention it.
