Hi all,

I am currently looking for a toy. I am not wealthy but do all right. I am interested in the 308's. I really like the car and the used ones seem to be in my reach. So I would like to know what your thoughts on the car and Ferraris in general are. How tough is the maintenance on them? I have experience doing tune-ups (adjusting timing, tuning dual carbs, etc) and feel comfortable turning a wrench. Is the 308 model easy to work on in the garage or does it require dealer service and special tools?? I am sure parts are expensive. How much are brake pads (might as well start with the normal stuff)

Thx!

thx guys

Thx for the info. It was great. What do you think about the cost of the 30,000 mile increment service? The other option I am considering is a c5 vette. This is based on operating costs although I cannot seem to find much on the subject online. A friend of mine has one. I know tires are expensive! I like the Ferrari more however. Both looks and the vintage sports car style I think. Never seems to go out of date.

308

Thx for the info. I think I will go for the Ferrari. I have always wanted one anyway and I think I would be disappointed. So the next question is where I should be looking. Dealers, private, sellers, auctions, etc. I would like to know the name of the insurance company that you use. Are you happy with them?

Thx!
