    Hello all,

    It was a lifetime dream to own a Ferrari, and I am sad to be letting this one go.

    11,400 miles, currently under the New Power Warranty through the end of April and can be extended.
    Key options:
    Carbon Fiber Drivers Zone, including paddles
    Front suspension lifter
    iPod adapter (with the all important adapter to the lightning connection)
    Front and rear parking sensors
    JBL upgraded audio system
    Navigation
    Power Daytona seats

    K40 built in radar detector (after market)
    Expel film front, roof and windshield frame
    CeramicPro Gold (lifetime ceramic coating)

    Tires replaced with Michelins last spring and have approximately 3,000 miles on them.

    I currently have an offer from two dealers for a trade in on my next car (it will have back seats) but I found another car from a non-Ferrari dealer I like a little bit more the ones at this dealer but not enough to be willing to pay more and of course that dealer is a bit lower than the first one. Thus my asking price for my car is $195,000 which is the trade in price I have been offered by dealer one plus the 3% sales tax I will have to pay on my next car if I don’t trade this one in on it.

    The car just had the battery replaced this week and already has passed the annual inspection for the new power warranty if the buyer wants to extend it.

    Yeah I always thought it was strange about the yellow calipers and it says aluminum calipers, maybe it was a typo. Here is another shot of the drivers zone. Image Unavailable, Please Login

    Beauty!

    Is that an undercoating? What's with the spray pattern on the undercarriage? Forgive my ignorance if this is normal to 458s.

    That spray pattern is pretty standard on 458's as we have had numerous examples here for sale and service and the undercarriage has a similar spray pattern to what is shown in the photos.

    Hi John,

    Saw your post, and sorry we didn't have that dual 458 ride we were planning through the hills of NC. When I make it up your way with mine, I'll give you a shout.

    Your car is beautifully spec'd and very fairly priced for someone looking to get into a 458 Spider. Most of the owners I know are driving these cars, so you're mileage is indicative of healthy use (as opposed to sitting).

    I's like to wish you the best of luck with sale and - as you said - it's been the Ferrari experience! Only those of us lucky enough to be behind the wheel will understand!

    William
