Ciao!

Ciao Tutti!

It's me, Dem. Some of you may know me from other forums as Dem. If not, you haven't missed much! Didn't know about this forum and was referred by Sy and Boxer, so here goes!

Had a red 355 Spider for 4 years, but just chopped her in for a Grigio Alloy 360 Spider F1. Only able to drive her for about 24 hours before she went wrong a few weeks ago and had to be towed away, but the garage tells me she is all sorted now! :thumbup:

I also drive an orange Focus ST for company business, which is a hoot!

Dem, welcome to the forum! Boxer takes care of the publicity he does a good job, doesn't he?

Great looking car, a shame it went wrong, but I hope you enjoy many happy miles with it to recover that bad start!

Thanks!

He seems to be doing a great job!!!!

4 years and no problems with the 355, probably spoilt me, but fingers crossed the 360 will be OK. Loving the sports seats and F1 transmission!!!

Welcome to the forum Dem. I'm sorry to hear about the 360. Glad to hear its ok though. Which car do you prefer since you've owned both. The 360 or the F355, and the manual vs F1?

Welcome Dem, nice to have you on here, hope that you stick around. Nice 360, i like the colour too. Hope it was just a one off problem and it isn't a car that's going to be a constant headache. Did the dealer sort it out under warranty?

Funny, I had the opposite. Have had the 360 for a year and a half and no problems (other than the one with the front undertray caused by the stupid owner). The F355 on the other hand seemed to have something go wrong with it every couple of month.

Hi guys!

Thanks for all the nice replies.

I hope it was a one(ish) off too! Suspnesion system sensor has been changed, which hopefully will have sorted that error on the dashboard. Power window not working was also confusing the roof and stopping that from working, so that's fixed too!

Will collect on Friday on the way to Belgium for a short break and can't wait!!!!

As for it being under warranty, there has been no discussion about paying, and as the car was only 24 hours old (well, under my ownership), I'd hope there won't be any issues!!!!
