Married man seeking meaningful relationship with F355....

Married man seeking meaningful relationship with F355.....
I took the Italian plunge a couple of years ago with the acquisition of my Maserati Quattroporte. I love the look, the sound and the style of it, but now I want something a little more fun and not quite so "sophisticated", so I'm searching for my first Ferrari, which I have determined will be a 355. I'm still undecided about what color (red, black or yellow in that order) or model (Berlinetta, GTS or Spider in that order) so I'm open for your input, and if any of you know of a good one for sale, please pass on the info. I have used this forum to gain a lot of information about these cars, as I did on the Maserati Life forum before I bought the QP, so I hope someone out there can give a fellow enthusiast some help with my quest. Thanks for listening.....

Quattro, welcome to the Life!

Why don't you fill out a little more of your profile, and/or give us a brief intro in this area: Member Introductions - Ferrari Life, and I'm sure people will be glad to assist & advise you.

I initially thought to begin with an F355 also, but am glad (I think) I chose the 550 instead.

'99 550, Rosso Corsa / Nero, S/N:114654, Assy: 31836, Engine: 52084

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.

Welcome to the forum TC.
I'm with John, I started the hunt for an F Mate thinking I wanted a 355.
But ultimately fell in love with a 360 Spider.

I haven't seen a 355 color I haven't liked.
So since you already have a QP, I say go for a spider!

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

I also love the 550 but it's a totally different animal than a 355.

Don't believe all the crap you will read about the 355 - yes, the model does has some known issues but all are correctable.

Nothing like a 355, especially B's and GTS's

Welcome to Ferrari Life. Think you will be very happy with an F355. Just make sure and get a good one. Like all Ferraris, a bargain car will cost you way more than a well-sorted one.

Welcome and good luck finding your 355 mistress. I especially like the 355 spider, blue/tan combo

Welcome. Lots of smart F355 people on this board to help. There is a growing market for the B and GTS models. Move quickly if you find one you like.

OK, I've added a few details, specifically some of the cars I own and where I'm from. Still looking for the 355. Think I want either black or red Berlinetta or yellow or red Spider.

I see you are from Albuquerque. Where do you get your Ferrari serviced/worked on?
