So...This is the second review I have written for Ferrari of Newport Beach. The first review was very positve in response to a ferarri trade in and purchase. But you know what they say, One good experience does not a trend make.
I know what you are thinking...My second engagement with them for a trade in and new purchase was a flop. Nope. I am fortunate, after much hard work to be able to afford Aston Martins, Ferraris, AMG Mercedes, R series Audis...and it has allowed me to know a good thing when I see one, and a bad situation to avoid it.
I just completed, again from Massachusetts, a cross country purchase of an extraordinary Ferrari from FNB, invloving a trade in, sight unseen. The Chinese Dragon virus prevented a much desired trip to the dealership, so the transaction was built completely on trust. Their documentation with videos, photos, build sheets, window stickers, service records and multiple phone calls and texts completly bridged my inability to travel.
Oh...yes, there was a trade in, with the dreaded potential of kidney stone stress on price resolution. Were we far apart on my offer and their asking price? Of course. It's a car purcahse. But in 5 minutes (or less), the General Manager Tim Rodgers and I reached an agreement equitable to both. And it was NOT painfull. So you think I am a Big Tech CEO, right? Wrong. I treasure my finances like the rerst of us hard working fools. So while it was a tough negotiation, it was fair, and we actually had some fun doing it. Tim's approach was simple...no one needs a Ferrari, they want one, if that cant be an enjoyable experience, you can always shop elsewhere.
FNB arrabnged the delivery of my car and the pick up of the trade in and it was all done in just 7 days. It arreived fully detailed and serviced. Perfect condition.
Honestly, it doesn't get any better than this.
If you are looking for a special car, and the California livery of colors and options is often the most special, call these folks. You are missing a golden opportunity to get a great car at a very fair price and have a good time doing it.
And NO, I have no relationship or special interest of any kind with FNB. This is an unsolicited review. They just earned it. Plain and simple.
