3 Months of 360 Modena ownership!

Today marks 3 mos of ownership with my '03 360 Modena F1. She is effectionately known as "Serious Black" aka Ferrocious!

Here are my observations:
1. Why o why did I wait so long to buy this car?
(a) This being my first Ferrari purchase I wanted it to go well, so I did my homeowork for a very long time....well until I almost become OCD about it.

2. I Love the F1 tranny!
(a) Anyone looking for a 360 don't be afraid of the F1. I too looked for a stick, but after a few miles behind the wheel I can't imagine why I wanted the 3 pedals.

3. The car has Rear Challenge grill, CS wheels and a Tubi exhaust.
(a) The beauty of these minimal mods is all I really have to do is just keep it clean and drive it like Enzo intended.

4. What I hate about Ferrari!
(a) No, I don't hate Ferrari, its just that I really Love my car, but in the back of my mind I know that the 360CS, F430, 458 Italia and don't even get me started on the 599 GTO are all better & faster cars than mine! What??? Can that really be? If so, I just don't want to know......so I will never allow myself to drive those other Ferrari's! Well, at least not anytime soon! I'm still on cloud nine with my 360!!!!!

So, anybody out there who is on the fence like me for so long......Buy the car its an awesome experience to drive and own a 360!!!!

So thats it......after 3 months I am still nuts about this car!

Joe, The 360 is an awesome car and as you said, your mods are clean. Glad to hear your enjoying it. As Ed said, it doesn't go away..., it only gets worse.

360

I've had my 360 F1 for a year now. I have enjoyed every single second behind the wheel. I doubt if that feeling will ever go away. Total maintenance=400.00 for an oil change. Next year will be a different story. At least I knew the first year would be inexpensive because of all the work that was done on my car before I bought it. Ferrari's are the best.
