Just sealed the deal on an F355 today - all grins!

My new "blue" - photos to follow once she is delivered next week, just in time to take a drive on Thanksgiving morning.

99 Ferrari 355 Spider / 3 pedal
Blue Ext / Tan Int / Dk Blue Top
18k miles
Engine out service done recently
Tubi Exhaust, aftermarket cats

Clean PPI - motor mounts/cvc boots, probably throw new tires on her too just to make sure we are good at high speed (not that I drive over 70 :P).

For those of you who are interested here's the leakdown - compression results (which is good - note for us newbies)

1. 2% / 200 PSI
2. 6% / 195 PSI
3. 3% / 200 PSI
4. 4% / 200 PSI
5. 5% / 205 PSI
6. 6% / 195 PSI
7. 3% / 205 PSI
8. 2% / 205 PSI

Congrats!
I drove an F1 blue/tan and unfortunately, my wife said I had to buy the 3-pedal 360 because I couldn't find a 3-pedal like yours at the time. I'll be slightly jealous when you post the pics!
Enjoy!!!!

I too was contemplating an F1, but when we sat down and talked about it I determined that I had to own a "beauty" with a manual gearbox - to be honest, I was sold the minute I saw a youtube video posted by "urgetodrive" titled "Driving the Ferrari F355" - I honestly don't think the radio will get much use in my new "blue".

I plan on breaking out the GoPro and making one myself so other potential buyers can hear the music produced through a combination of working through the gears at high rpm's.

It's all perfect; late car, three pedals, beautiful colours, soft top!

Go crazy!

Salve,
