Are you US or UK based? If in the UK I would budget GBP1500 per year with a large service running GBP3-4k every 3 years. This is just service costs and does not include regular running costs (gas, insurance, and tires).

I'm based in the uk Scotland to be precise. A few friends were recommending a 350z for my next purchase but Ferraris have always been my passion! So I'm wonderring how much of a difference it is in cost for a few top end cars but the 360s my choice. Also I have seen a few on pistonhwads auto-trader etc, what is the likelyhood of the ones on the cheaper side being absolute dogs? Or is it a general thing that the 360 doesn't entail too many problems? Iv heard it's quote reliable. What sort of millage should I be looking at when buying one? Thanks for all the help guys it really is helping me go straight for the 360 rather than something less! Thanks guys

Ferrari's are not Japanese cars. They need maintenance at regular intervals. You can figure about $1k-$2K/year average on maint.

If these costs are too much stay with the 350Z.

Ferrari's need care. If this is not for you don't do it.

You can't buy one on passion; you have to use reason.

welcom: do lots of reading and questioning here, suggest reading first the owners guides linked above ,and the forum areas.

Boxer's quotes are about right for UK, Greg can speak from experience too.

me, not so, as no 360 yet.

Highly likely that the cheap ones are dogs. I would do a full PPI on any 360 you might be serious about buying. Mileage is not a big issue if the cars have be properly maintained and higher mileage cars will sell for a discount. Overall mine has been highly reliable.
