Nope. Only thing thats mine is the 430. Ol yeller is my buddy's and the plane is my other friends jet share and it was a great photo op when we hit Vegas for a bachelor party. Nine big idiots in an XR 45 is a sight.

But my girlfriends boss just went and finalized the spec sheet on their new G6 that arrives this year. She spends most weeks bouncing around the country in a G5 now or one of the company Lears. I told her we need the G6 for a month or two. I'm sure they won't mind

Hi All

New member here as well from Perth Western Australia....

2001 F1 360 spider with 12000 kms.... Having issues with a heat exchanger that let go and dumped coolant into the gearbox...

Being repaired now at a hefty cost and weeks off the road... Is this a known problem with 360's...

I knew they had roof issues prior to purchasing mine but had not heard off the heat exchanger troubles in the past

Cheers

Dean

G'Day Dean, welcome to FerrariLife.

Sorry to hear your heat exchanger issues. Unfortunately, you aren't the first one have such issues on the F360! Have a look here : Dynamic Technology Group where it's said that the heat exchanger is a time bomb. I know it's too late now but maybe you can avoid this in the future.

Cheers,
Stef

many thanks for your reply and interesting info... My new exchanger was ordered from ferrari 5 weeks ago and arrvives this week but once she's back on the road I will look at my options asap... Surprises me that a car (albeit 10 years old) that has only done 12k kms would have such a major fail but such is Ferrari Life I guess...

thanks again

It is a known issue on 360s. Gcalo has developed a solution. Suggest you PM him.
