I don't think dealer appreciate flipping for a premium and unless you care little about your reputation, I don't think you would like to do that as a user.
fiction. A dealer said he would do me a favour by selling me his MP4-12c first batch quota for a fat premium with a discount. I have a quota so I said to him, oh good, I have a better deal for you, I will sell you my quota for 1/2 of what you asked for. Then he didn't say a word... nough said... sure I will sell you mine for what you asked for 50% off... if it's such an easy sell, he would have taken a double up... no go I'd say. Until we see a signed cheque, I wouldn't count on this premium talk. You can ask for the World... then there could be zero buyer.It SEEMS complete arrogance to me that dealers or manufacturers want to stop cars flipping after they have made £25k and £100k respectively out of 'their' customer, certainly not 'their' car when sold!
Sure can understand the manufacturer wants the cars to go to enthusiasts rather than speculators but it's a free market at the end of the day. They have failed to stop Tom Hartley et al becoming multi millionairs off their high selling prices ( and supply/demand realities)
Anyway yet to see if premiums are fact or fiction!
My friend, I am not negative towards the MP4-12c. Indeed, I would say quite the opposite. I have very good comments on it. As I say, I love Coke, I also like PEPSI. I love McDonald's and I also like Burger King and I love Morton's and I also like Ruth's Chris and I love MAC and I also like Windows. MP4-12c is a spectacular marvel of engineering and I have repeatedly said that. It is fast, capable and revolutionary. I mean it, carbon tub, dihedral single hinged doors, revolutionary suspension, 3-in-1 capability, the revised version is even better so you can't get a better car in the same niche than McLaren. Ferrari is up there with the F1 legacy and the only serious contender who can ride shoulder to shoulder would be McLaren. As I say, I love Ferrari, I also like McLaren. They can co exist. Unfortunately, I am a mortal who can't afford both but I have a deposit for a McLaren so I am a customer.FACT most exotic cars are sold and bought for way over their list values (as mentioned before Tom Hartley etc). Catitalia you can't declare that this is not happening based on a sample of 1 (you), that is so a spectacularly insignificant sample number that a market researcher or statistician would laugh themselves to death.
Funny but all your recent comments have a lot of negativity about them regarding the MP4-12C, would be nice to see some positive ones once in a while (or do you just save them for Ferrari Chat?)
