New 355 Owner Looking for "Parts"

I am the new owner of a 1997 Black/Tan Ferrari F355 Berlinetta, and I am excited to start what I hope to be a long and fulfilling journey in the world of Ferrari. As you might gather from my forum name, "tcbquattroporte", I also have a Maserati, along with several Jags and a ZRI Corvette, among a number of other cars, but I think I am more excited about acquiring my first Ferrari than any other car to date. However, the car I bought did not have a few things I would like to obtain, as follows:

Owner's manuals in their leather case

Tool Kit in its leather case

OEM Car Cover for the Berlinetta

Ash tray (mine is cracked)

Lighted suspension switch

Please PM me if you have any of the above for sale or know where I might get them. Thanks.

Welome. It would be helpful if you added your name in location to the profile. I have a feeling you are in NYC and Rob W helped you with this car?

I assume you need the plastic surround of the ashtray and not the metal lid?

Try Ricambi America first. If they can't provide you with the part, they might know who can.

I had similar things I was looking for when I bought my car. The manuals and tool kits come up on ebay and vary in price a lot. Dont be afraid to wait on the next one. I found manual prices varying from a couple of hundred to over a thousand! Tool kit 600-800. Bought one or two things from classifieds. I will try and PM you where I bought my pouch if I can find his email.

I have bought used stuff from Ferrparts, with good service. The new ashtray from Ricambi is expensive, and then you will need to decide on desticky now or later!

The ashtray itself is cracked, not the cover. I've also seen a carbon fiber cup holder that takes the place of the ashtray, which might kill two birds, as the 355 has no cup holders. Of course, with one hand on the wheel and the other on the shifter, I need somewhere to put my cup, but then what am I doing drinking something in my 355 anyway? Ha.

The "sticky" problem has already been fixed on the car, along with the dash shrinkage. I had the same problem on my Quattroporte and refinished the offending parts myself.

Send me an email when you get a chance, we have repaired about 100 ashtrays with great success. Much cheaper then buying a new one. Robbie
