    Do you still have the carbon fiber sport seats available as well?

    So what you are saying is that the seats are available for $87,950.00 and the shipping container will look a lot like a 599? :)
    This looks like such a great deal for someone that wants a daily driver and isn't worried about resale. GLWS!

    The Engine is worth $40K; the brakes are worth $30K.

    Hell of a deal. I am giving it serious consideration. Got to convince the wife, as my son is getting married and I have to budget for that first.

    Any clue on the repair costs?

    My buddy had a guy hit him on the left rear quarter panel on his FF. No damage for the driver's door, but FOA had to replace the left rear wheel assembly. The right rear was not touched.

    The repairs were $130K. On this 599 I am guessing it was well into the 6 figures.

    Hard to see this car going down from the expected purchase price. This is about as cheap a Ferrari ownership experience as one could hope for. Gas, insurance, registration, maintenance/repairs, with depreciation carved out.

    Maybe it is a good car for a Las Vegas exotic car rental company.

    I have been watching this car. If it had the correct wheels it would be on the way to my garage

    Any idea why Carfax listing on 3/4/2020 lists this as "not actual mileage"

    Still seems like a great deal.

    Yes
    When the car was totaled by the insurance company in Mass. the lazy insurance adjuster didn't go out to the car when he was filling out the paperwork for the DMV and put 999,999,999 on the paperwork
    If you looked at the carfax report , you can see the mileage progression on the paperwork
    With the proper paperwork and time this can be changed

    This car is not perfect, it has some flaws
    There was a PPI completed on the her at Raging Bull Performance in Costa Mesa CA

    Items that were found

    1) Small crack on passenger side front bumper mount
    2) Drivers side back up light is out
    3) The battery is a weak
    4) The car need an oil change, not because of mileage , but for the time it has been sitting
    5) The paint isn't absolutely perfect,
    6) The interior has a few flaws
    7) The car has 458 wheels on it, with 458 pressure sensors, The sensors need to be replaced

    These are the reasons that I lowered the price from $95,950 to $87,950

    Remember, you are buying a FERRARI, not a chevy
    This car runs, drives and looks amazing
    Its not a show car, its a driver
    You can drive it for 5 years, and as long as you maintain and take care of her, you can sell for the same price you purchased her for

    So, you are seriously saying the car is now priced 2% too high for you? Really?

    Sure , but the Go Fund Me was just for the wheels ~1600$ so Bruce could afford the car.

    I would buy the car too, but not with those horrible floor mats.

    The obviously wrong wheels throws up too many caution signals for me.
