355 GTS F1: 27'000km & 5 five seasons later ...

I have published a write-up on my ownership experience with the 355 GTS F1 whose pictures are posted in the Garage section.

My goal was to provide honest answers to the most frequent questions I get:
- how does a 355 feel in 2005 ?
- how much does maintenance cost ?
- is the car reliable ?
The results tend to kill a few myths: the reality of owning a Ferrari, which is not rosy every day, but also running costs which are not outrageous compared to a Porsche or other sports cars which are far less exclusive.

The article is here on Asphalte.ch. It is in french, sorry for english speakers, but the cost breakdown PDF should be easy enough to understand.
If you don't understand at all, there will still be the pictures, like in adult mags ;-)

ze_shark, This sounds like a terrific piece of information. Can we post it here ?

If you can PM or email me the original Word file I can run a rough english translation.

Cheers

I'll post an english version, there are enough expats around in the region to make it worth it. Will let you know when it's available.

I donŽt speak French... before I learn French, IŽll finish learning German and learn Italian

in 10 years I hope IŽll be able to read and understand the article :lol:

unless you post the translated version before that!!!



forgot to say... the car looks amazing!!! I love the color of the interior!!
