High deposit and low monthlies are my tactic too. £450 a month for a prancing horse in the garage doesn't sound doable but it was!

It’s a lovely car, I decided against it personally because of the premium for driving it others have mentioned. Spraying carbon panels though, really? Why not just wait for the right spec to come up?
I’m not spraying it. Ferrari are painting them for me. Factory paint. It’s a £2k job they’re throwing in with my deal.

This is the right spec, other than those panels. Which seemingly isn’t an issue to put right at ferraris expense.

I don’t want an older model, later than 2014. Has to be red with Creme + race seats and cruise (albeit that can be fitted). Has to have the carbon interior and has to be from Ferrari. Less than 3 owners (2) and under 10k miles. They’re just my preferences for my first f car smile

fk it. Could be dead tomorrow. I can afford it. So I’m doing it. I’m not going to look back and think “what if”.

HUGE deposit haha.

I wanted to go 15% to keep upfront costs down. I decide to go 25% as you get a better deal in the long run, and I guess your money is leaving your bank monthly anyway. May as well reduce that monthly outgoing and have the better deal.

50 in with 135 ticket price. Got a very good px price on my old evora as well. Actually had to take 10k cash out to be able to do it on lease purchase as 50 was max deposit.

That’s brilliant

What age, miles, rough spec did you get for £135?

The only other 458 I would buy is from Jez at GT Premier. He won’t move on the list price what so ever. Which doesn’t sit right with me.

No carbon other than the wheel
15k miles
3 owners
2012 model
No cruise.
No race seats.

I’d rather pay £20k more (£7k off list with the painting cost included) and get the one I’ve applied for, which is better in every sense. You get what you pay for at the end of the day.

No point being stingy on your first Ferrari and end up with a half arsed spec.

You know what I mean clever clogs. I’m not getting the local body repair shop down the road to do it. It will be Ferrari approved.

I’m absolutely chuffed with the deal and the car. Fingers crossed it’s approved today.

Be better wrapping the skirts so future buyer could easily have original if required?

It’s not a £2k job to paint the side skirts. I had a Ferrari main dealer paint the skirts on mine as part of purchase deal (there were marks on them) and they made a complete mess of it. I took it elsewhere to rectify and the dealer paid the cost.

I know you say you can’t be bothered, but I personally would have sold them and replaced with standard coloured set, but each to their own.

Red wrap would look shocking. I don’t plan on selling the car.

I think it's a fair price tbh, lots of 458's seem undervalued to me - especially those at 110-120k

if I had the money i'd buy a fair few of them up

How much was the cost then?


Realistically, who’s buying 458 carbon side panels. How much are they even worth?

Just did a bit of digging


458 Skirts = £500 each side

458 Carbon skirts = £2950 each (they won’t fetch that)

It would cost, I am guessing, with painting, £2500/ 3000 to get the skirts off eBay and paint them.

If I was lucky I would double my money. Sounds like a great plan if you have storage and don’t mind the hassle.

I’d rather loose the potential profit and have the car ready as I want it on pickup.

Each to their own hey

I think the opposite.. the price reflects where the market is it. I would say there a few that are ‘overvalued’.

I don’t know the market or claim to, but it’s a 14 model with low miles and a lot of options. I don’t feel it’s overpriced. It’s expensive, but I would rather pay more for the newer car, with less miles.

Isn’t that how these things work?

How old is it? How much has it been used? What options does it come with?

Of course it’s going to be more expensive when it’s one of the newer cars, low miles and £50k of options.

It’s not massively overpriced although some things are not totally important to most, number of owners being one, as long as its sold in the network we all expect a few owners, the miles is super low which is great the 20k barrier that seems to exist is miles away and no way is it going to lose 50k in 3 years. That would put the 110k ones ( if they exist) down in the 60’s. which will never happen. There’s to many people caught on the last v8 Ferrari etc. I always see the low mile cars as good as you can run them for years ans when it’s at 20k mine will be at 40 k . So it would likely be near where the 20k ones are now

I paid a reasonable amount for my higher spec atelier car, with more miles, it really depends how much he gets it for. I offered £150 k they wouldn’t come near it. It’s one of the best examples in the market but same again it’s the most expensive 458 italia

I wouldn’t paint the skirts though , that has disaster written all over it

Also, people saying these cars are overpriced, if seen it said for at least a year. People are still buying them, in fact they seem to be flying with very few used around at all. Especially with carbon and seats. COVID bubble perhaps but maybe not. 90% of us are all going to lose something on our cars im sure

At the moment the economy is supported by furlough. Perhaps six months after the schem is withdrawn the economy might not be so good.
