    Hi Everyone,

    I was interested in the vehicle below and wanted to see if anyone thinks the blue interior or spec would make future resale incredibly difficult.

    I think the white is gorgeous, but the inside is not ugly but not beautiful

    My 2 cents

    Might make it harder. Not too bad. Seems a bit pricey

    Choosing colour specs is personal. Reselling value is subjective and most people are influenced by what dealers feel is a good spec or safe spec to resell. I have two ways to look at this car. If you are going by a dealer opinion based on them having a car that sells quickly, most people who buy Ferrari’s tend to share dealer opinion. If you feel you need dealer opinion endorsement then for peace of mind and no regrets buys such a car. The other thought I have which I do myself, buy a car you really like despite others opinion. When u buy a dealer resell “safe” car then the number people who are potential buyers is high, but also the number of cars on the market and available to choose from is high. If you have an unusual spec car then you may find it only appeals to a few people, but equally yours my be the only one available in the country in those colours. In this instance I have found my cars in my own loved colours has sold quicker than a mass market color spec. Dealer marketing of cars is another issue.
    Bottom line is, the car a beautiful car you have posted. There is no bad Ferrari. The unusual ones tend to become desirable. You can further personalise the car if you desire.
    You won’t regret buying a lusso. If you love the colour then cut a deal. If you don’t then there are other Lusso’s. You can go on autotempest.com and it will show you all cars available from all the various website listings from one portal. It’s free to use.

    I think one has to see it in person. That combo and interior could really pop in person or not.
    Agree that the target price is lower for a 17 with 5k miles.
    Seems lightly optioned so that has aLos impacts price and resale as well as color.


    Google that dealership - I remember some incidents from a customer or two

    Yes. The dealership is a bit, as my son would say, ‘shady’. I have no personal experience just what I have heard from other people who have dealt with them and other dealers in the area.They always seem a bit overpriced when I’ve inquired about different vehicles.
    The Lusso is a great vehicle. I am 2 months into ownership and still love it.

    Blue is my favorite color but that interior invites a specific taste which translates into more difficult resale. At $190k it would be priced appropriately. There was some bad press regarding that deakership a few years back. Do your due dilligence.

    So take off another $2-$3K from your offer to make up for any lost resale value.

    I agree that your relationship is super important with your dealer

    Where I am, white Lussos are near impossible to sell. Dealer here has had one for about 20 months now, and it even has a much more friendly interior than that with pano roof.sure a white on blue might sell better where you are, but here you'd be stuck with it. I think the FF looked great in white, but it's not working for me on the Lusso. Unless that interior is just right for you, you might want to consider something a bit more inviting. Sabbia, Beige and Crema works well in the Lusso.

    Happy huntin'
