New to the forum and new owner!

First of all I would like to thank all you guys for all the valuable information that is shared in this board. Thanks to that, yesterday I fulfilled a long time dream! I found a gorgeous F360 Modena, Rosso Corsso/Tan with 11,000 miles! Thanks to Wil de Groot from exotic cars USA in Milford,NJ for helping me with the PPI and thanks to Ferrari Masserati of Central New Jersey, they took awesome care of my and my new toy, before selling it, they performed full major service, belts, fluids, new brakes, new tires, new F1 50 amp relay (I learned that from this board, since I originally wanted a 6 speed manual) and even got a good bag of Ferrari merchandise as a welcome gift!

Driving her home was such a pleasure, she runs like new and the sound after 5,000 rpm is mind blowing.

I just need to take care of some sticky parts but that's barely cosmetic. Most probably I will send them to stickynomore as soon I can figure out how to remove the door pull handles and the air vents.

Looking forward to keep learning from you guys!

Santa arrived earlier this year with a nice shiny red toy!

Merry Christmas/Happy holidays to all of you!

Alex Nieto

Welcome to the forum Alex, and congratulations on the new acquisition! It will be hard to imagine at this moment, but you're going to love that car even more every day.

You've probably also noted that this lot is a voracious bunch, they love photos....

Enjoy!

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

Here she is!

Thanks!!!

I am sure!!! Last night I just wanted to keep driving, but unfortunately rain was on the forecast, plus was dinner time and I needed to take care of my girls at home!

As soon as the weather improves I will take her for an official photo shoot.

In the meantime here is her first picture at the dealer.

She is a 2002 F360 F1 with front and back challenge grilles, the rest is all stock.

Alex- Your new redhead is beautiful. You can download the 360 workshop manual from ferraridatabase.com for free and hopefully that will help with parts removal. If not, someone should be able to help.
