hello from a newbie and some purchase advice appreciated

Hi all. I am not yet an owner but intend to be in the near future as my search for a car starts.

I am considering getting a 360 and have up to a 40k budget. Some general advice as to what I should be looking for when buying and what to walk away from would be much appreciated.

Also how often/miles do cam belts need changing? How often do clutches need replacing? any other major spends i should take into serious consideration before I take the plunge?

Cheers everyone and I hope to contribute to this forum as I move into ownership.

Suggest you take a look at the 360 Buyers Guide as a good starting place:

Ferrari Buyer's Guides - Ferrari Life

are you looking for a coupe or a Spider?

If you are in the London area, I would also suggest stopping by Cliveden House around noon on Sunday and talking to a few owners.

Also most 360s are now sold via Independant Specialists, a few well know ones are:

Rardley Motors
DK Engineering
Simon Furlonger's
Nigel Jeffery Specialist Cars

Welcome to F life.

Listen to Boxer's suggestions, that's great info there.

Again, you have to figure out which 360 you want, coupe/spider, manual/F1 tranny, etc

Good luck
