Mark,

Many congratulations. You've made the right choice! (I have will have owned my own 348 for 9 years in a few days time). I assume your car is UK RHD? Only 14 348 ts' were delivered in black to the UK originally according to my records.

Yes it is a RHD so that is interesting to find out there were only 14 delivered to the UK! I was trying to post on the 348 forum but can't seem to get it to work??

Hi Mark and welcome aboard.

Congrats on the purchase. I hope you love yours as I love mine (SS #64). They truely are amazing machines in a variety of ways. Mine was a goal that took 15 years to attain and worth every second. Good luck finding a few freinds to share the passion with. See Angelis here at this site. He's from your vicinity and is another wealth of info.

thanks and yes I have emailed Sy a couple of times - I look forward to meeting up so I can pick his brains

My first plan is to buy the CF interior panels, I think they look very good in the 348 and help tidy it up a lot

Welcome. Glad to have you here.

What is "taxed"? Is that registration fees, etc?

You should be able to post photos. Check to make sure you have allowed cookies for this site.

As Rik said, it's worthless w/o photos!

Remember, guys are visual. That's what we tell women!

Well done Mark, assuming your car is the Walkersport car then we have virtually the same car, mine is LHD. After having owned many other Ferrari's I am loving being back in a 348 again.

They are Ferrari specialists these days, especially 3x8's, I spoke to Tim Walker a few times last autumn and he is a thoroughly nice chap. He also comes highly recommended by Al.

Yes it is the Walkersport one. Just went out for a little spin in it - very nice! Can't wait for the weekend...providing the weekend is nice weather I will go for a drive and take some photos for everyone.

I highly recommend Tim at Walkersport, excellent service!
