OK, finally...I found a car that I wanted.
Now for the personalization:
I need to use the cigarette lighter to power portable accesories (GPS, cell phones, etc). I was able to take the console apart, but I couldn't figure out how to get the darn Euro-cig lighter out.

How do I get that thing out so I can replace it with a conventional one?

BTW: the car had 37k miles and in just over 2 months has 39k. I've been thinking about owing one since I was 12. My car's a joy to drive, be seen in, get questioned about, and thus far to own. I like to golf and have kids, so the 2+2 cabrio was the ideal set up for me. It's fun to even watch grown ups shoe-horn themselves in the back seats just so they can have a ride, much more my kids' friends.

I've had Porsche's, have a MBZ and BMW, but nothing brings out the smiley kid in you like a Ferrari.

Thanx :lol:

I wasn't aware that Euro cig lighters would be any different than US ones. The outer barrel should unscrew from the inner barrel.

No problem. Hey, if you would, post a pic of your car in the garage section. I don't think I've ever seen a mondial in blue.

cig lighter removal

apologies for the long time between replies.
Just to finish the thread- to remove the euro cig lighter you do unscrew the outer barrel from the inner barrel. The trick is you have to first unclip the brass retaining spring on the outer barrel from its catch on the inner barrel. Once you've done that, it's a piece of cake.

And yes, a pic of my Blue/Sera and Tan Cabrio will be posting in the garage section very soon.

Thanx all.
