Hi all,

Just wanted to say what a great site this is. Full of interesting info and nice pics!

Anyway, my question to you all is that I am looking to buy a 2004 360 spider in a few weeks... and can't seem to make up my mind if it should be with the F1 paddle shifts or a manual? Can anyone give any insight as to which they feel is best... and why?

I have test driven both... but still can't seem to be able to make up my mind!!! Is the clutch likely to last longer in one as opposed to the other? This will be my first Ferrari, and the shape of the 360 has always appealed to me. So any general advice on the pros and cons of the 360 Spider would also be very useful.

Any advice would be greatly appreiciated!

I think you mean the badges on the side in front of the doors. Originally they were meant for the real racecars and supercars (288 GTO, F40, F50, Enzo) But last few years they are also an option on the normal road cars. So if you are a purist you can say, hey they are not meant to be there since this is a normal road car, but since it is an option I would take them if you like them. It is your car, so it is your decision, don't let others say what you should and what you shouldn't do with your car ;) After all, it is YOUR car.
