Hi All,

I am from Scotland, United Kingdom. I have never owned a Ferrari.

Thinking seriously about buying a 360 Modena F1. I am currently most interested in a 2001 model which has covered 28000 miles. The dealer tells me that it has a full Ferrari service history, but it only has 4 stamps in the book. I thought the 360 had to be serviced every year?? In which case it should have 7 stamps.

The dealer said that with a low mileage car you can get away with a service roughly every 7000 miles. Is that true?

I would appreciate any comments on the above, plus any other general advice on buying 360.

Thanks in advance.
Michael

Welcome to the forum Michael. I would check out the Buyer's guide in the Members section if I were you. I am sure some 360 owners will be chiming in soon to answer your question. Good luck with the search, thats a great car!

4 sounds too low

I have a 2001 360F1. It has only done 6500 miles but it gets serviceed every year anyway. Every 3 years the belts have to be changed (regardless of miles) and every couple of years brake fluid and coolant. These should have been done at least twice on the car you are looking at. These services are not cheap but the price of fixing the car if they weren't done could be serious.

Ferrari's don't need service every year.

There is a 5,000 mile which is usually just fluid changes.
There's a 15,000.
There's a 30,000.

Belts are generally every 3 years or 30K miles depending on which is first. So oil changes and belt changes are more frequently done.

It is best to change the oil at least once a year.

When you look at the service folder it's more important to know what the service stamp represents than how many there are.

Ask for documentary history. That's the best proof of what's been done.

If you get the car there is quite a bit more I can recommend you do.
