    Moser:

    that's beautiful, my father in law should get his in Beirut first half of next year I believe. Rosso Corsa :)  He traded in his 458 Speciale, for the Pista to my dismay :( I know the Pista is on another level but something about that 458's NA motor did it for me.  He actually traded it in for what he paid for it:)

    Horrible error of judgement Smiley .


    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    It was a big debate between him and I. I was trying to make him keep the 458, and get the Pista as well, but his claim at the end was the he isn't a collector.  He always likes to have the newest, best, and fastest.  :(

    Each to his own, but this is another miss IMHO. Much of the personilsation is going too far now and not working at all. Stripes on Lussos and 812s are rife. Some of the TDFs went way too far as well. Having said that, I am toying with scratching the Blu Electtrico itch on the Pista and combining with another favourite colour of mine  - orange Smiley.

    A special car deserves a special color, a Pista in black or red just wouldn't do this car justice.

    Special colour is okay, it is the stripes and coloured lines where it all goes wrong... Smiley

    Have you seen the mini Tricolore of this Pista? So stupid. Smiley

    I hate stripes on cars. My E63 S has only that black stripe on the side because it is part of the Edition 1 package and I thought I take a look at it before I remove it. Now my detailer told me that removing the stripe after half a year isn't a good idea because there would be some visible "shadow" in the paint. Since this is a matte paint, he cannot polish out the shade, so he recommends to stay with the stripes. Smiley If I knew that before, I would have ordered the car without them. On a Ferrari, these stripes and lines look even more stupid, reminds me of the 80s, when all car manufacturers offered stripes for their cars as an option and it looked more and more silly (remember those flowery stripes on Fiat cars? Smiley).

    I said pretty much the same a few weeks back on another thread. It's not just Ferrari who are guilty of this nowadays but it will hurt their brand in the medium term as some of these creations will require significant discounting on the used market to sell on and that process will devalue the cars in general. It really is the dicitionary definition of short term gain for long term pain.

    It can explained in very simple terms. It's the transition from the always stylish (but reserved) Luca di Montezemelo to the brash and outlandish Lapo Ellkan.

    Or dealer incentives to feed customers to the Tailor Made  program. Also do not discount the massive impact of Instagram.

    exactly - heard that early pista deliveries demanded a hefty ticked optionssheet...

    They’re using it an excuse to get clients early spots.


    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    I hate the game but why would they not do it? All their 488 sell immediately and have huge waiting lists anyway.

    Outside of the US and UK.

    488 coupe and Spider both had less than 3 months or no waiting time. Things have changed dramatically after the Luca’s departure and the ipo.

    In Germany, you can get a 488 pretty fast (probably not the Pista though Smiley)...
