New owners, 360 Spider F1

Hi all

Well, after 15 years around the UK Ferrari scene I finally bought my first Ferrari in January and absolutely LOVE it !
Having always thought a F355 was a more likely entry, then seeking a manual Rosso/Crema 360 coupe, I bought a TDF Spider with paddles.
Although weather has been epically poor here in the UK, I have already used up my annual mileage allowance and had to buy more, so this is going to be a well used car. Just need a nice lady to fill the lovely Scuro Blue Daytona passenger seat...offers invited !
I have already waxed it with Black Label, bought a cover from carcovershop and its on a CTEK 3.6 battery conditioner, just needs a wash and proper detail, but any decent day I get I'm out getting it dirty. Had a great blast on Sunday with an Aston V8 Vantage and Vauxhall Monaro, all around 400bhp. Thats what its all about.
Cheers

Congratulations on the beautiful new 360 and welcome to Ferrari Life. Should not be too difficult to find volunteers to ride in the passenger seat.

My favorite car, I know the excitement you're going through. Congrats and enjoy, it only gets better.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

That should do it

Or you can be like Balotelli (You must of heard of him through the news) and try to go through the doors with your car .

Very nice colour, and I'm guessing the numberplate reads V8 Tour De France?

Here's a few more - I love the Scuro Blue Daytonas which go really well with the Tour de France exterior (hence the number plate). Its also got Xenons, indented shields, colour coded calipers and the F1 plaque (which was 180!!) and some extra leather, though heaven knows where that is as everything that isn't glass or aluminium is leather.

The cover was a bit of a special but I'm rather pleased with it - a breathable peach fabric.

Thanks Alex, a lively and welcoming Forum.

My servicing will be done by The Ferrari Centre in Maidstone, Kent, England - a bit closer than you ! They supplied the car and I've known them for many years so the natural port of call when seeking a car. Thankfully belts are over 2 years away and nothing due to ealry next year, fingers crossed !

I just need to move to a house which has garage doors wide enough for the car.......would love to be able to stare at it, polish it, take it for a spin on a whim but its currently garaged 7 miles away. UK garages are very meanly proportioned, not a problem I suspect in the US/Canada so many cars are stored for owners, which discourages use.
