If anyone can show me a red/tan aus  delivery 2003 f1 modena, for $85k... I'll sell it instead of this one.

Current market price would be around $120k ask for it. It sold for a fair bit less than that, and neither buyer nor seller had to put up with any nonsense.

This car has done 50k of its km with current owner, in only 4 years, and has had at least two services each year, and is only now needing it's first clutch. It has cost around $0.40c/km to run over the last 50k km. Which is less than half the considered average.

Buying a known car with lots of recent history is worth so much compared to just buying the cheapest around and hoping it's ok .

Some people really make way too many assumptions based on too much internet rumour.

Engine life of 355 and 360 can be enormous. It's use and maintenance that dictates most of it. There are cars running with over 100,000 MILES on them that are just fine now and potentially for much longer too.

I was going on what you told me, actually.

Who did the PPI on it for the purchaser?

That's for sure.....but until they've lived it, most won't get it.

The same person that ppi d the 308 the buyer bought ten years ago in similar circumstances, that has proven to be great value too.

Sorry....but I don't know who that is.

Must be tricky for you in a situation like this. You help sell a car that you service and give your recommendation to the purchaser. If something goes wrong, you're in a very tricky situation, legally at least. Maybe morally as well.

In your shoes, I'd tell the purchaser to get a PPI done somewhere else.....and not recommend that person...leave it to the purchaser to find someone.

I simply connect a buyer with a seller, and let them work it out for themselves.

They're not silly.

So no PPI was done? That *IS* silly!

It's the second thing everyone in the know says.

1. There's no such thing as a cheap Ferrari.
2. Get a PPI

I bought a cheap 512BB.  I did many miles in it and had great value, and sold it at vast profit, but still cheaply to the next owner...

I bought and sold it without ppi either way.

I did the same again with my 348.

And I bought my 512,TR Cheaply, knowing it had a bad gearbox, and not bothering with a ppi either.

I guess you're wrong. Again.

And this 360..... You're assuming so much. Incorrectly, again.

But if you can perform work yourself you would be confident in price without needing a ppi?
