Manual for sure.
The 355 was the first road Ferrari with a F1 like transmission. It wasn't near as good as it is today on a 430 or 599. Slow and uncomfortable in city traffic, can eat the clutch within a few 1000's km's.
But maybe I'm justifing my own choice.

I've never used a gear lever in an exposed gate, with that "clink" sound with each shift.

But, from what I've heard, I think I'd prefer it over an F1 transmission from any Ferrari.

I tried both and the paddle shift is really nice but it was an F430, but kind of boring in town after a while, it’s almost like driving an automatic and it down shift automatically for you if you forget, but on a track it must be so cool!

Personally, for the paddles, I would stay away as it removes the fun factor and the 355 F1 is not as reliable as a 360 and wears clutches really fast if used in town.
