first F car

Sooo, i just got my first Ferrari, after having a Maserati Cambiocorsa,
and having a Ghibli as a DD, i finally took the plunge and just got a 2014 white California. And i can say Wow, what a machine,, visceral like an old school italian sports car , but refined with all the modern conviniences. only mods i am considering are tinting the windows, maybe a matt black wrap for the roof, and carbon fiber spoiler for the back. any suggestion feel free to comment.

congratulations Sasso. My thought: drive the car for a year before you make any changes. You may find you don't want/need any at all. cosmetic stuff is nice but the market into which you may ultimately sell some day may not want the add-ons. Of course wrap can be removed but after a year's driving you may well ask yourself: why?

I want very little out of life, only the best, and there's very little of that

Congrats on the purchase, very nice!

Like the above stated, I would not make too many alterations to the car, and if you do, you want to make sure they are 100% removable without any trace they were once there otherwise you will get murdered if you ever decide to trade the car in down the road, keep her stock if at all possible or use OE parts to avoid getting dinged.

When you are ready for replacement parts, ie brakes, filters, etc send me an email. We just helped another Cali owner last week and saved him just under a thousand $ from what the dealer was charging him on the replacement parts.

Best Regards,

i absolutely love the 612, but lately values have skyrocketed. also i did not want to deal with F1 anymore. and for 6speed prices are very steep right now.
