Hi all. This is my first post here. Went and looked at a 328 GTS today and fell in love with a 355. I sat in it, and the seat fit perfectly except the steering wheel practically rested on my knees(It was a 6 speed so that would make it difficult to shift). Is there a steering wheel adjustment to bring it closer and further as well as the tilt? Honestly I was so excited today, I didn't even think to ask :D Thanks.

Welcome

Welcome. I just sold my F355 '97 manual and if I am not wrong I recall the steering wheel did tilt. Anyhow, don't worry about the small details because you'll get used to it and you would adapt. A good example is my Dino 246 GT. Boy did it feel a little cramped when I first got inside. But then, before you know you become comfortable with it. Now, it doesn't bother me a bit. On the contrary, I kinda enjoy the layout. (I'm 6' 1in", that's about 182cm). Back to your 355, you think you are excited now, wait till you drive it and get used to it and when you're over 4,000rpm, the exhaust sound is truly an enjoyment. Much better than the 360 etc. (personal opinion). Good luck and have fun. Cheers Jimmy

It's adjustable, both fore and aft and up and down. Search for the lever at the bottom of the steering column and disengage it and adjust, once you've got your position lock it back!

Does anyone know if the forward and aft is an option, or if was available after a certain year? Just called the dealer and he said the one I sat in is tilt only :(

Go try a later year model!

How is he supposed to login to owners.ferrari.com if he does not have a VIN to register ? The manuals are on the site, but if there is a section where options made available during the life of the model, it's well hidden.

Mine only has tilt, never heard of a fore/aft adjustment, and I don't see how it could be done without a major redesign.
