Looking to buy first Ferrari-some help needed
Been looking at Ferrari's for years and own 10+ Classic cars at any given time and have decided that it is time to buy that Ferrari I have always wanted. I'm looking for a 355 GTB or GTS even tho I know they have some issues to watch out for and that some other models maybe more reliable/less costly to maintain, but I love the 355 look and style, so I'll take the maintenance issues. So now my questions:
1- Anyone have experience with Bentley Gold Coast in Chicago-good or bad??
2- Recommendation for PPI on 355 in Chicago as Bentley has a 99 GTS I really like
3- Service recommendations for Ferrari in Michigan-I'm in southwest MI, but willing to travel for a top notch service company-years ago I had a number for a guy in Detroit area, i think Jim might have been his first name??
4- Best choices of year in this model-I was thinking a 98 or 99 would be best due to newer and having more factory updates/improvements, but looking for your input, also prefer F1, but have heard of issues-maybe more potential than common? Or are F1's just a bad idea and should look for manual only? I'm 6'4" with left hip replacement so sometimes clutches get tiring during city/stop and go driving
Any help would be greatly appreciated
