New 360 owner

Hi there, friends

I have just acquired a 2003 360 F1 Spider. It was delivered to me on the 9th of this month and I love it. The car is black with cream and nero interior. You can find many pictures of the car here, this is the dealer website:

I always liked Ferraris but it's my first one. The only sports car I have had before is a Porsche Boxster and also a Mercedes SL350, although obviously this 360 is a whole different thing...

The callipers are now yellow, and I have changed the original Becker radio for a better one. Also I am planning to swap the tyres for winter tyres although I need some advice with that (if you can help me, you can look for the question I posted in the 360 subforum).

I am from Spain but I have been living in the UK for the past three years, working here as a dentist.

I really like this forum, there are tons of information here. Thanks for all your help!

Hi friend!!

Yeah you are right, that was a too short presentation...I live in the UK, Indiana is the name of my cat and I use it for all the forums...

Welcome to the forum. Not much snow or salt in the UK, so winter tires should keep you in pretty good shape except for the occasional storm where ground clearance is an issue. The summer compounds do not work well at all in low temperatures, so a good idea to make the swap.

Very pretty Spider with the UK favorite Crema interior. Hope you like washing your new redhead girlfriend, because she will need it often with Nero paint.

Hmm, unfortunately in the part of the UK that I live, last year we had 6 months!!!!! of snow. It's really really that bad here, and look at this

Coldest winter in modern times on way with snow forecast for Britain starting next week | UK | News | Daily Express

Not the best moment to buy the car but couldn't wait!! I guess I will take my bed to the garage....
