    Howdy all. I've been lurking for a while and am now close to pulling the trigger on a 488 gtb or spider. It's no ordinary market out there... any thoughts on fair pricing on a reasonably specced 10-15k km car? I know the variables are a plenty but the spread in Carsales is huge.

    Try and buy the one that is your favorite colour/ specification.

    Fair pricing is what you and the seller are happy with.

    What's so hard about that?

    When I had my 575 on consignment at the Ferrari dealer in Sydney, they had 9 unsold 488's in the basement that they couldn't shift. Of course they only ever have a couple in the showroom at any one time, it wouldn't do to create the wrong impression! The wholesale price must be well under $300K by now.

    My advice, go to your dealer, tell them you're a buyer at $300K then sit back and wait. They'll scoff at your offer and act offended, but I bet you'll get a call inside of a month.

    Don't bother with a spider, only gay hairdressers buy them :D

    Ta. It's been a bit of a model journey in deciding so far... always been a 458 lover... wanted one forever then drove both and just thought the 488 was better. Thought I'd get hung up on engine note but nope. Then thought I'd always be a coupe guy but suddenly I'm a spider guy! Can't lose any which way but I've waited long enough... It's time to pull the trigger!

    I'd be getting a 488 too. Especially since they're practically the same price.

    I agonised for months over what I was going to get too Dan. I was swapping between 458 spider and 488 spider, but for me, when the 355 spider came up, it was a no brainer for me 'cause I love them. You've made the right choice in my opinion. The 488 is a beast and sounds great too.

    You are partly correct. It's a 488 engine.
