Welcome to Ferrari Life. The 328 makes a good starter Ferrari because it is fairly easy to maintain. The 348 and F355 offer more performance, but require engine out maintenance every 3-5 years. That service is expensive. If you can afford the maintenance, either a good 348 or F355 is an excellent choice.
I would spend some time searching 348 and F355 threads to see what maintenance issues each has had in the past. Many of those have been solved over the years by owners and technicians. The 348 tends to have more little niggling problems that can be overcome, while the F355 has had isolated valve guide problems that are expensive to repair (sometimes new guides, valves, and valve seats, 40 of them).

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
