    Default Very low mileage cars

    Still on the hunt for a suitable F430 Spider, I spotted this one at Verdi - http://www.verdiferrari.biz/stock.asp?s=476 . The 2006 car has just 900 miles on the clock and 2 owners ! Has it spent most of its life on a dealer's forecourt?

    Not necessarily.

    900 miles in 1.5 years (or therabouts) is not a lot for a Ferrari.

    It's probably more than some people on this forum do.

    Sorry mate, was'nt aimed at you.














    As obviously you'd never do 900 miles in 10 years let alone 2.

    It seems they are selling quite quickly at moment and no chance of one with ceramic brakes. Are they that rare?

    Why on earth would you want a Spider with CCM? A coupe I could possibly understand......IF you were going to do a lot of track work, otherwise why bother?

    But if you were contemplating lots of track days, surely you'd prefer a coupe anyway?

    You are right, I was referring to both in terms of availability.

    I probably won't be buying until April, but I'm trying to get a feel for what's available now. I'm looking for a Red 430 Spider, F1 with crema. There don't seem to be that many around with standard equipment and I prefer the standard car. I don't like the CS wheels, racing seats or any black carbon on the dash. Ceramic discs would be wasted on me as I wouldn't be spending much time if any on a track.

    I hope (for your sake) we don't have an early spring - the prices of Spyders are sure to go up if the sun comes out !!
