Make a day of it, might as well savour the experience. Even if it were a main dealer I'd want to look over the car and ask them to fix anything as part of the prep.

Probably sound advice, they aren't especially rare in any case!

Disappointingly the 488 I'm keen on looks as though it's not in top notch condition. Does anyone have any experience of Redline cars? They have a couple of 488's I like the look of.

On the finance front I've been offered 4.4%APR over 36 months from Lombard. 50% balloon.

I've bought a Ferrari from Redline without seeing it prior to purchase..Car was exceptional although don't expect the same standard of detailing as you would get from a Ferrari main dealer. Factor in a high end detail after Redline which you don't need after a Main dealer..
I estimate a Redline Ferrari needs to be up to £10K cheaper by the time you factor in detailing,paint correction and two year warranty.
I've used Lombard to finance cars who are brilliant and untouchable on rates..

Lombard only do business finance though, right? - or am I missing something?

Not quite 100% correct..Lombard will finance all assets including super yachts, private jets, high end cars etc for private use..However you need to be a registered business to access their finance even if the car will be used only for private use..All payments has to come out of business accounts..

Thanks, good to know about Redline, their cars do look pretty immaculate.
