Should I buy this 355?



This is for sale in my area. It has 25K miles, and is $80K. Does the body look good?

From the picture the body looks fine but I would definitely recommend getting a PPI done.

He was just giving you a hard time. I would suggest looking at the F355 Buyer's Guide and then going to check the car out in person. It is hard for us to say whether or not you should buy this particular F355 as I have not seen it. I can say, yes you should buy a F355 if you want a Ferrari as it is a great car.

I seriously thought it was a kit. Maybe it's the rims but the proportions look off.

I also think that the wheels look strange in that picture, I also considered that it could be a kit

There is no way that is a kit and you couldn't get 80K for a kit either. That car is real.

He hasn't been home for a couple days, but I don't think it's a kit. I've compared some photos with it, and it's too perfect to be a kit (unless they have come a LONG way, and with interiors too).

It does look a little odd to me, don't know exactly why, but something does not look in place.

I have to believe it is because of the wheels

the car looks higher than normal

and I think the tires seem to have a taller "profile", also

Yeah I did, but it's sold now. The leather was a little worn, but it ran great. They weren't stock rims.
