    That looks great! In fact if I had the cash spare Id snap it up as a second runner to keep in Malta. Think the drop in price is due to the fact its a Malaysian import - RHD with a kms dash. Would probably put some people off.

    P.S. Im not deliberately disagreeing with you on every post honest!

    If the final price looks like it will be too low, you just get your mate to bid it up to your "reserve". No reserve sales can mean nothing, I feel. Not that I would subscribe to such an unscrupulous stroke!

    There are lots of things from the text, other than the colour, that might well put people off and be pushing the price down.

    That it lived in Malaysia for 8yrs wouldn't fill me with joy. And with decent enough pukka UK cars starting at not a lot more (when you're spunking 20k, 25k isn't going to be stretching it that far. And if it is, you should not be buying a Ferrari), this one would have to be mucho cheaper.

    Harsh world, but these aren't exactly rare.

    Without any more info to go on than the ad and pics, it does look like a good car priced cheaply due to the wrong colour and an unusual history. A 5k saving would cover servicing costs for a year or two, and in that colour it would be easy to find in the carpark when at Ferrari events. However it would be hard work come resale time.
