As of Monday this past week I am the proud owner of a 2009 F430 with 11,000 miles with a ton of factory carbon fiber in the interior. I wanted to give a big thank you to Dan for all the videos which have made me comfortable with my purchase. I even purchased a copy of Dan’s book a few months back from Amazon to make sure I knew it backwards and forwards before I began my search.
I have been a Porsche guy since I started driving and currently own more than one of these wonderful German pieces of machinery, but I always wanted an F-Car since Crocket and Tubbs in Miami Vice, but I have been afraid of the reliability and maintenance.
I currently own a 2004 GT3 which I bought new and have been wrenching on since new (other than oil changes since oil disposal is a giant pain in my town in NJ).
The closest I came before to buying a Ferrari was back in 2000 when I was shopping for a Boxster S, I almost bought a late 328 that was at the dealer but the sales guy made the mistake of mentioning it just has it’s major service and how much that would “save” me in-front of my wife. Needless to say I didn’t buy the 328.
Based on the recommendations from Dan’s YouTube videos, I also just started ordering stuff from Ricambi to make the car perfect.
