The fact that the owner didn't care enough to put a set of wheel center caps on it and go over the engine bay with a rag to take off a layer of dirt says a lot to me.[/QUOTE]
That was kind of my thinking as well. And the fact that there were so few pictures. While I don't expect the engine bay to be surgically clean, some degreaser and WD40 can go a long way (at least for non-F cars).
If I were to get a 348 I would want a Spider, but still think a 328 GTS would be my best, easier to maintain, fewer "bugs", etc.
