    Pretty much why I just let them schmooze me and host of other people for a few hours. I was the only one in flipflops :D. Ferrari have been dead to me for a long time since the last great 599 rolled out.

    Has your Superfast come in yet? That’s probably the most interesting Ferrari out right now, to me at least

    2021 for that... although I am tempted to pick up an overpriced one for summer.

    I'm gonna rent one for a few days to see if I like it or not... after my displeasure with the 488GTB, I'm thinking I might even cancel.

    Not that I have any idea whatsoever, but I suspect the engine make the 812 rather more interesting than the 488

    1,5k with 130k on the clock.
    some slight rust on the driver side rear wheel arch, but will get that sorted shortly.

    What happened to the doors? Weird damage. Good cars though, always liked those! Nearly bought an estate before finding my Volvo.

    What was wrong with the old car? What was it?
    And to be honest 1500 seems a little steep for that considering the damage and the rust. What year/engine?

    the old car being a french poo box 307SW, worth £200 scrap money needed work done costing about £600, needed new brakes, tyres, something on the rear suspension.

    the saab is a 07plate 2.0T aero anniversary

    Ah OK I thought it looked earlier than that, like 03 or something. 1500 seems alright then to be honest. :)

    For reference, my 03 Aero was £1150 at the beginning of last year with 98k on it, so it's not beyond the realm of possibility. I personally wouldn't have been too keen on paying £1500 with the doors in that condition, but if the rest of the car is up to scratch, then its not a bad price. @dr_volki - check the condition of the battery, these cars are sensitive to them dropping voltage, don't want it to die in the middle of winter like mine :p

    i probably slightly overpaid but needed something quick since my old car only had 5days left on the MOT. still not many saabs to choose from in general unless i wanted to spend twice that.
    ta on the battery check will get that done at the weekend
