On carsales in the last few months every car listed for sub $200k has sold rather quickly - only talking about coupes. The in this time the number of cars for sale has decreased and at the moment nothing under $200k. I know asking and selling price can be worlds apart but if you can get a F430 for low $100k you could make a quick profit on it surely.

How could one find one at those prices?

To buy one at wholesale you would have to be an LMCT with the right contacts- an example would be the LMCT that takes the trades off the franchised dealers that aren't "cherry enough" for their own showrooms. As a private punter you would have to luck into a desperate seller or have hide like a rhino and ring up every private sale 430 and offer wholesale money. Eventually you might 
find a punter who is ready to move his car NOW for whatever reason. Remember a seller can trade his car in for wholesale any time he likes and walk off with a cheque rather than go through the hassle and bullshit of dealing with tyre kickers.

The best you will probably do is somewhere between wholesale and the dealers retail ask. A dealer is probably going to put $75k of wiggle room and profit margin on that $110k 430 Coupe. If you offered the private seller $20k over wholesale he would jump at it rather than take wholesale in trade when the new ride turns up.

high 100's for a 458 wholesale? to start with, whats the point in talking wholesale pricing.
the cheapest listed car is $399k. you think they're making 200k profit?

a yellow 2010 458 was purchased from the sydney dealer and landed in adel for 350k last Nov.....21,000km

Saying that an early 458 is under $200k wholesale is just teasing...  :waah:


I would tend to say it is one of the other "ing" word starting with

wish
wank
want

 :?
but is far from the word "reality"
