As others said there is quite a bit of difference between a 550 and a 360. Having said that i have not personally driven the 550 but i feel it would be similar to other cars as such. I can only answer for me but when i bought my first ferrari i started out looking and saving and after about five years the model changed three times and i finally bought my 355. For me it was obvious none of the other cars at the time other than their super cars did it for me. I drove all that i was considering and the drive, feel, sound, maybe its easier to say whole experience of the one i picked was unbelievable. For me as i said it was all about the passion and the passion i found for my car looking, driving, or listening to it made it a slam dunk.
I think keep looking and saving and when you think you have enough saved start driving and if you are anything like me when you drive the correct modelfor what you r looking for it will be obvious.
For example my car is very low to get into, has wide side sills to step over, is quite loud, can not fit most golf clubs, has pop up headlights, is a hatd top and for me was perfect.
Now if ii would have been looking to drive to my office in a suit everyday, go golfing with a friend, drive at night a lot, or just take it out on nice sundays with a top down , it would not have been the car for me.
Just drive it and you should know if its the car for you. Both the 550 and the 360 do many things the same and many things differently. In the mean time keep looking thats half the fun. Remember the longer you wait the more you appreciate it.
