  1. That's interesting maybe its just the state im in? They told me $250k limit. Ok but question, with state farm its not agreed value is it? It's just a policy where if you're in a wreck you get blue book right? At least thats how i understand the policy for my RS6. With hagerty you're paying more bc you get a check for your amount no questions asked. Ya its weird there's so many exotics here in the condo, but i assume bc its a vacation place, most are registered elsewhere. I don't think it would be an issue if i owned the condo and maybe added to policy grouped in by say like AIG but being that I just sold the house and im renting, I have nothing to attach this to so Chubb/aig wont do it now. The manger of the building is working on contacting a few owners that have a few of the private garages here to see if i can rent one, lots aren't even being used. If I get one it wont be an issue. Thanks for the help!
  2. Thanks for the tip, tried this morning, no luck This is what Im attempting to insure the roadster for $375k. My RS6 i have with state farm no big deal. The car seemingly has to be in a locked garage at a home and all the companies said no condo bc people are around it and can touch it ummm ok what about all the cars at cars and coffee? Anyhow Its become a pickle. I may have to send it to one of those storage facilities till i figure something out, i dont like the idea of something happening in the condo garage and its not covered. Very frustrating situation. I am thinking its possible to maybe add it to your policy when you own a condo? For us, the market heated up a lot in south florida, we sold home and got a condo on the beach for a little till i decide the next move. Again can insure with state farm anything up to $250k. There are 2 aventadors in this garage i need to get a hold of one of the owners and ask. Any tips would be welcome. Also currently paying around $5400/yr for 1k miles with H, and thats with Mercedes club of america discount and massive deductible of $20k. I have no wrecks on record so thats not a concern.
  3. No and whats weird is there are countless exotics at my building. I don't know whats going on none of these insurers want it unless its in a locked garage. Im really trying to understand how to get this insured, I had an exotic with state farm a couple years back and they didn't care. I used them bc of the same issue, but i didn't know when i purchased this one that state farm has a $250k limit. I insured the car at my home bc thats where I bought it, but we recently sold home for a condo so now its a pickle
  4. Im trying to get insurance after moving into a condo. Hagerty/heacock/etc all have the same response they don't want to insure it unless its in a garage and a condo garage is considered a public space and they don't want the risk. How have you guys insured exotics in condos? I even spoke with a regular company like state farm and they don't insure cars over $250k.
  5. nobody likes the SLR? It's so beautiful, especially in the right colors, one of the most physically stunning cars in person, im lucky I get to gawk at one of the rarest color ones ever made, so im biased
  6. how much does your neighbor want and the miles? Here is the 1500 mile one that recently sold for $46,000 + 5% fee on BAT - https://bringatrailer.com/listing/2000-mercedes-benz-sl500-17/ Here is the 5500 mile one that recently sold for $29,750 + 5% fee on BAT - https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1999-mercedes-benz-sl500-29/ Right now there's a 43k mile on on BAT ending tomorrow and the bid is up to $16,000 already, it just seems these bids came out of nowhere bc I looked at one maybe 2 years ago, good shape and seller wanted $8k for like 85k miles.
  7. how many miles does yours have labrit? Im curious if its possible the low mileage ones are getting top dollar bc there are so few of the thousands made.
  8. Been watching the auctions recently and a 1500 mile SL500 sold for $46,000 on BAT, then a 5k mile one sold for $29,750 and then today a 15k mile one sold for $22,000 at barret jackson vegas. The 107 560SL before it are selling for a lot of money with alot of miles and the 129's are still cheap a couple sold at barret jackson today for like $6k. Do you guys see the 129 being classic cars, the low mileage examples obviously. I know they made a ton of them, but have to imagine not many low mile examples left as most were just daily drivers but to me there isn't a more classic design that says 90's than the 129 SL
  9. ferrari is done as a brand, these new cars marchionne is gonna mass produce them. The 458 speciale supposedly 3000 were made. They're all about profit now not low quantities. The older Ferraris will probably go up in value bc the brand is going to expand to a whole new audience like porsche.
  10. was just in vegas and my cabbie made an interesting statement to me. He said his wife waters plants at the wynn and she has a 2 way radio and its bogus that the security guard at mandalay did not.
  11. Whats most intriguing to me is have you guys seen the production numbers on things like a jaguar E type? Over 30,000 made. If you look at the 300 SL mercedes between roadster and coupe almost 4000 were made. These Ferraris from the 90s/00s that havent really appreciated like say the 512 testarossa or the 575M were both made in quantities right around 2000 units total and both have way way way more performance than either the 300SL or the jaguar E type. I just think cars appreciate alot when the kids who would dream of them could finally afford them. The scarcity or lack thereof with things like jaguar E type or 1960s american muscle cars is crazy when you look at their values and compare to these 90s/00s Ferraris that are actually way way rarer.
  12. Jonas Im thinking of getting a 575 F1 bc I think they're the most beautiful and prices have come down alot, whats your take on the one you have?
  13. Manual are fun but annoying day to day usage. It wasn't the same as a Ferrari but my first car 20 years ago in high school was a manaul and what a pain in the ass that was, definitely would have paid $12,000 extra for F1 if I was ordering a new ferrari in 2002. I really cannot believe a 575 manual is $300-400k and an F1, better in every way is literally $100-120k. Unreal.
  14. All Im saying is all the commentators on here and Fchat, they all seem to ignore the F1 cars as junk bc of the F1 paddles and Im just saying that sticks were much cheaper to have at the time and nobody wanted them. Sure a few guys are overpaying now, but the F1 system rocks and is honestly not bad at all. When I see guys say its lurchy or clunky I really question if they've ever owned or driven one. All I know is cars that are less scarce than 550s or 575s like porsche 930s and ferrari testarossas are trading at crazy values and when the maranellos age, they are way scarcer, only 1800 575 F1s. Thats the lowest run "production" ferrari in a long time and it will be an amazing car long term value wise bc of its beauty.
  15. If you love the maranello, lets say 575, and you clearly have $400k sitting around. Would you rather a stick 575 or a F1 575 + F1 599 + a 355. Thats what we're looking at now with where 575 with a stick prices are. Dealers can ask whatever they want but there really aren't any trading hands at these levels. Most just sit and sit. All Im saying is look back at history the 930 Porsche they made over 20k of them look where they're at now well into that $120-200k range. You look at Testarossa and its utter garbage to drive and they made over 7000 of them and its well over $100k now. I could go on and on but cars like the 360 they made over 16,000 of them and the 458 over 20,000 of them. Ferrari is going mainstream, they're a public company now and want to make more money. they're building a bigger fan base than ever. Then you look at the 550 and they made 3600 and the 575 even fewer at 2000. Ask yourself how many of each still exist today and its not many. They made more 246 dinos than 575 maranellos and those are well into the $300-400k range and honestly no kids that are young today would even want that. The maranellos are the last breed of Ferrari V12 that was made in small quantities, the 575 was basically 500 cars/year for 4 years.......To see people say they're not a future classic bc its F1 and not stick is silly. People have art work trading at $20-30m that cant hold a candle to a 550 or 575 in terms of beauty. So yea I do believe when you make 2000 575's and they're F1, so what bc all the modern ferraris are made in way larger quantities and honestly no 599 or 612 or F12 or FF is anywhere near as beautiful as a 550/575 on any level.
