i believe of you are working with a well known dealer that it's better to use them
they will usually offer a waranty on the car and usually the car will be in beter shape
and yes you do pay a bit more then, but i believe it might prefend some headaches afterwards
For that model I don't think you will see a noticeable difference in price. Look for an 88 1/2 year if you can afford it. The one advantage to a dealer, assuming they are honest, is they will have inspected the car with their mechanic. Otherwise it would be wise that you have a car inspected if you are buying from a owner selling his car, in which case you will have to pay.
I would recommend going both routes at the same time. Then you will be certain to not limit yourself and you'll end up seeing more cars.
I'll have a guess - and then Andrew can tell you the real answer!!!
The 328 received an update during 1988 - the later models having ABS for the first time.
Of course - if you can't find one - you could always go for the Gold and get a 348 :green: Similar price and quite frankly the finest automobile of the 20th century... (for everyone else, I'm doing a Bart today :lol: )
For a 328 I don't think it makes much difference if you go the private vs dealer route. Just make sure you have a PPI done by a qualified Ferrari mechanic so that you know exactly what you are getting into.
To make it much easier for you to see the difference between ABS and non-ABS cars: check the rims! Rims that are hollow (so inward direction) are the ones without. The ones that are outward directed (do not know another term for it) are the ones with ABS. However, I think it might be possible to put ABS-rims on a non-ABS car but definately not the other way around because they will not fit in that case.
