    Car looks to be in great condition based on the pictures but both Daytona seats seem to have sagging on the sides of them. Could you post some more images of the seats for further examination?

    That's what most of us are thinking but for some reason it has not sold. It seems way too good for this price but the exotic used car market can be finicky at times.

    Had I not purchased my 2007 430 few months back, I would have pulled
    The trigger. Stunning at a giveaway price.

    I wouldn't listen to any criticism from DeTomasoGTS74 - he hasn't filled out any profile and one of his ONLY two posts on this forum is a negative comment in someone's ad about how something MAYBE looks from a mediocre photo. As they say, if don't have something nice to say move on...

    I didn't realize we were so sensitive here in the classified section. Can we only compliment how beautiful the cars are for sale (a given) and not ask legitimate questions prior to spending over $100k on a used car? I do not own a Ferrari today and joined the forum primarily to search for and learn about the F430. I also didn't join 6speedonline until just before I bought my Aston Martin or club cobra before I bought my Backdraft Racing 427. We all start somewhere, no?

    I am actively looking to purchase a 430 and have looked at several. I have looked into the service on this one via the dealer and am asking about why the Daytona seats look unlike any I have seen (loose leather, ex owner posting-hopeful of a reply). This is a simple question and should not be taken offensively.

    The classifieds have different rules for commentary than the rest of the forum:


    The seats looked ok to me, certainly not alarming, but if you're looking at the car with a cautious buyer's eye then I would say that requesting further pictures or information on aspects of the car to help you make an informed decision is certainly relevant to the discussion. As a courtesy, I have edited your earlier comment to something a little more neutral rather than delete it.

    All the best,
    Andrew.

    Thank you Andrew. It may be worth noting that I started with a compliment towards the Car as it is stunning and my "negative comment" was merely a question. That is within forum rules for classifieds. I called the dealer yesterday and am hopeful Peter will call back for additional detail.

    Thanks for understanding.

    I have had cars for sale here and appreciate both sides of it. Why not send a PM?
    If PM is not active yet you can request the OP to post an email address for communication. I created one just for the sale of my car.

    No problem! Yes I could not PM (new member) so thus he question on open forum.

    Perhaps the car sold as Petre did not call me back today. We still have yet to connect live
