Make sure you get a full PPI done.

Dude, I'd rather own both, I'll never swap my 328 for a 360, they are different Ferrari's in many ways and my wife said to me the other day " Rather get a F430 Scuderia instead of the 360 as a second Ferrari "

well for me the 328 was and is still my favorite and for so many reasons....

Is there an intelligent and respectful way to deal with it?
On the contrary....my experience is, and I think that of many of us on this forum, that it depends on how you yourself 'behave', it's got nothing to do with the car. If you drive around arrogant and showing of, you will indeed encounter a negative response. But when you share the passion, be yourself and stay resectful to others, you will encounter enthousiasm and get many thumbs up. IMHO that goes for everything and everybody whether you own a Ferrari or not. Just my 2 cents..

Italian bella's:
550 Maranello 7-2000 nero/nero
1974 Ducati 750 Yellow Sport
1974 Ducati 350 Desmo Yellow Sport
2010 Ducati Multistrada 1200S
(And a few Alfa Romeo's and Range Rovers)

Power is nothing without control

Well guys...It's one step at a time. or more like one car at a time. We shall see how the over the phone negotiations go tomrw for the 360. If they accept my offer contingent on PPI, I'll be booking flight to CT for as early as this week or late as next friday. The 328 is still on my list. Its the car that made me want a Ferrari to begin with. It's look is truly timeless. Turning 40 in less than 2 weeks guys. I think its a mid-life crisis and i just have to resolve it with a little help from achieving childhood dreams. I was almost setback this morning as i discovered my roof was leaking! new roof was going to put F car on hold but i said to myself that i just can't keep putting it off. Well, it all depends on how the talks go tomrw. I wish i could deal in person. I think it tells the other party you are much more serious and real.
