G'day Michael, welcome aboard, hope you stick around and join in the forum.

As Stile said, we have a few Aussie members, there must be a good Ferrari scene down under? At least you've got the weather to enjoy them all year round, not like us in Northern Europe or N.America/Canada

Hi again, I wish i could report that the fantatsic weather so often associated with Australia is occuring. Sadly it is not - we have had years of drought and in Queensland, we have some very strict water restrictions, ie the only water you are legally allowed to use is that for internal use (showers, cooking etc) - absolutely no washing cars, watering the gardens etc. And now over the last 5 weeks, we have had severe floods and the rain wont stop. Will post some pics up of the 360.
Also wanted to ask if anyone has had experience with buying rims from http://www.wheelsperformance.com
They have a set of HRE wheels I would love for the 360, but have not dealt with them previously. They are also suggesting that I go with the following spec :

Front : 18 x 8.5 with Pirelli 225/40/18
Rear : 18 x 11 with Pirelli 295/35/18

Will this fit ok ?

Thanks in advance
Michael

They should fit OK. You are adding an extra inch of width all around which will have some effect on the handling. The ride will also be a bit harder as these tires are even lower profile.

Hi Julian,

Yes. I went to Sydney a few times to look at 2 360's when I was on the hunt for one. There are some lovely cars down there. Good little scene in Brisbane as well.

Michael
