Hi everyone,

I am planning to buy a F355 next year, but I have found that the handbrake is different than the F430, F360 and all other cars.
The handbrake is next to the door and there are "pop" sounds when you release the handbrake. To me, it feels like easy to break!

However, anyone like this design? Any advantage about it? Any other F cars uses this kind of handbrake? Why Ferrari put it next to the door?

Honestly, I really like the F355, but I feel kind of disappointed about the handbrake.

To set the handbreak you pull up sharply 3 or 4 clicks until hard resistance is felt. The break should now be set, and the car should not roll. If the car cannot be stopped from rolling the lineings are probably worn. If the break is set the handle may now be pushed down to its original position. This will aid the driver to get out of the car. When one wishes to disengage the handbreak, just pull up hard, push the button, and lower all the way.

I've never heard of any problems with the handbrake. After you pull it tight it will go back to the floor board to keep it out of the way. I actually like where they put it. Not that is matters but I know the Lotus Esprite is the same way and I have also never had problems with it.
