Sweet

An F355 like that is the ticket to exploring all sorts of childhood dreams.

Looks great, especially that last photo. I wonder how many more of us don't have enough time to drive their F car (or cars!) as often as they'd like. I certainly fall into the category...

Wow! I've seen so many yellow 355 spiders over here, that to see a silver berlinetta looks really special! And I always enjoy seeing other members' photos of their cars in places other than where I am -- always a treat.

Thanks for sharing!

Great backdrop on the last picture. The 355 looks stunning in silver.

That is a very good looking car.

Color is stunning.

Is the interior black, David?

I tried figuring why the front looked different and I now believe it's the clear turn signal lenses.

Thank you, always kind words from you all, yes G interior is black, i've had her for years now only 28000 km on the clock, i do drive her once every two weeks or once a month, i have find a way to relax without driving her, i usually start her up twice a week for about 15 mins listen to a few tracks and put some leather rub on the sits and clean the interior, run the air con than work the gears a bit and hope to keep her in good condition, i can go on and on how much i love the F355, but i won't do that because we all have our own fix towards our Ferrari's.

Gentlemen start your engine.....

Cheers

Not much more I can add to what everyone else already said. x7?

The 355 is stunning in the color, better than red, seriously.

She looks stunning!

I'm one of those owners who make time to drive my cars A couple of times a week in the Ferrari and daily in the R8. Try to make some more free time to drive her, she deserves it hehe

Great looking 355. Silver is good color. Don't want to play know it all , but you might want to ask someone about the idling for 15 min when you do it. I used to do it to my Testa and it turned into a nightmare. Talk to your favorite ferrari tech and I'm sure he will tell you not to do that!

David: You need to drive it more often. Seals and such need to be worked and things lubed. Keeping in a standstill position makes the grease settle wrong too, thinking especially of your shaft greese which will start to make trouble for you...but, you state you've had it for years.

Idling for 15, which I used to do when I got my first one, thinking it helped, didn't. Needs more air flow about engine etc. than just fans on radiators etc.

very nice car, and Silver, don't believe I've ever seen one till now.

You need to drive that car more, David, or you will develop problems. 15 minute in-place starts are very damaging.

Engine and tranny oils should be changed every year minimum.

You will not devalue the car by driving it.

Now thats some valuable advice, in regards to the color Ferrari only shafted two over so i jump the chance to buy it, i'll try to find more time to drive her, but i do find gear changing can be a little slow at first say the first ten min, but she does get all the royal treatment service twice a year. i'm sorry to say this tho she has only clocked 2500km in the past year and a half so i'll make an effect and put her to the floor when i can gentlemen, they do have Ferrari clubs here and take there rides to china and back but i'm not into that kind of gathering thats why i enjoy taking to you fellows on FL, consider she is ten years old now she still looks timeless to me, will update you guys if anything comes up, now you can understand why when Boxer and friends takes his out on these road trips and how envy i am when i see pics of it, well i should be so luck!

Cheers

Your statement about slow gear changing can mean a few things, David:

a) tranny oil must be changed. Get the Shell out of there and replace with Redline 75W90NS

b) if yours is an F1 you may need the fluid changed. It should be done every two years.

You need to make sure that car fully warms because you will cause considerable deposits in the oil.
