I was just looking through forums and when I saw Perak, I had to get in touch with you. My interest in the 348 started when my tennis kaki offered to sell me his 360 and told me that it is not meant to be a daily user. RM460K and not daily user seems a waste! anyway, it is too high profile for daily use (and too expensive for me).
The 348 was considered due to budget constraints. Also I think the 348/355 are the last of the good looking Ferrari. At around 100 plus, even if I cannot afford to maintain it, it is still a sculpture to behold. I have a mechanic friend who currently maintains a mutual friend's Countach and 348 (now sold). He said a 348 is ok to buy. So it all adds up and a 348 it is.
BTW, how much did you pay for yours and how much was the other one?
