I saw today a 355 spider yellow in France.
But I have a few questions about it and you could answer to me...

it is yellow and on the left raer fender the vernish is damaged...I have a 348 red ant it is not vernished is it normal that this 355 was vernished or not ??

the right actuator cover panel is missing and I thing there are informations written on it (license plate ?) do you know what there is on is.

The 2 cat concertors and a manifold have been changed by new one and it is only 39 000 km (27 000miles)..I never heard that it couild be damaged so early...

so many questions ! buy or not to buy at only 59000 euros...

I have no idea what to say about the other problems, but with Ferrari's:
If the price is too good to be true, it usually is

I think I would walk away from this one unless the owner has a lot of answers to your questions. Specifically regarding the manifolds and cats, the F355 is know to have had problems with both which require replacement. Also, suggest you take a look at the F355 Buyers Guide in the Ferrari Forum Members section. Cheers

I agree with Boxer. There are so many 355 available in France, I'm sure and they should be in much better condition than that. Take your time and seach for a better example. If a car doesn't look good to the eye then it is not good. That's always my motto.

Suggest you look at a few other F355's before walking away. It is a great car and has a considerable number of improvements over the 348. There are a lot on the market so I would be patient and find the right one. Cheers

F355

Yes I will wait january to have news....
I red the buyer guide on web site and saw that exhausts problems have explainations for this car. Now I only have to know why the actuator panel is missing and why the car have been repainted...It is very often for ferrarit be repainted I think but the question is: WHY ?????
One thing is shure is that I wont buy it like I would buy a Shirt !
