Hi all

It's been a month since getting my fibreglass 308 on the road after purchase. After a few hundred km the front end got very rattly and squeaky.

Turns out the rose joints (all 8) in the front end could not take the sudden activity after standing for 12 months with the previous owner. Another recomendation for regular driving.

So back to the workshop for front end bushes and joints plus Koni's rebuilt while they are at it.

Hopefully it will be fully fit when I get it back.

On the subject of italian, does anyone know how to say '308' in Italian? Is it tre zero otto?

Your Italian is 100% correct :) Sorry to hear about the problems with the 308. It must be a bugger getting the car and now it is sitting in a workshop after only a few km's :( Ferrari's are definitely more happier being driven then just sitting around.

Enjoy the ride :D

My 308 is in for the exact same job. All the bushes need replacement and the Konis are being overhauled.

All the parts from Superformance.

If you want a mechanic to keep your interest, let him buy the parts.

You will save nothing long term to do so yourself.

Joey - Where were you earlier today when I had to write a Christmas Card to my cousins in Northern Italy.

I used Bablefish. This was so bad that they will think I am a moron when they try to understand.

Buon Natale.

How do you say:

F50

F40 ?
Most of my Italian friends and family members would say it as you would in english F50 or F40. Just with an Italian accent :)

Eg: io giudo una F50 (I drive an F50)
io giudo una F40 (I drive an F40)

or

if you want the 50 and 40 in Italian, try emphasize the ''F'' as if it was spelt e'F,

Eg: io giudo e'F cinquanta (I drive an F50)
io giudo e'F quaranta (I drive an F40)


Hope this will help. Being Italian living in S.A and not speaking the lingo, my Italian can be rusty.
