Hello all,

I am looking at a euro 360 my2000 spyder which had some top end work done about 18 months and 5k miles ago. The car has been serviced with belts and new clutch/ flywheel placed at that time. It appears from the reciepts that the valves were replaced along with the head gaskets. I tried to contact the service manager at Ferrari of San Diego but he would not give me any details stating he could only disclose to the present owner. What kinda BS is that? Since the overhaul, the car has been serviced several more times at the Lambo dealership in Los Gatos. The manager there only had good things to say about the car. Any cause for concern? I am not familiar with 360s that is why I am seeking the forum's input. I have a heavily modified Viper and the fact that the valves were replaced does not bother me if things were done properly. I guess after 5K miles one would have noted any pending problems.

Thanks guys for the input. The faxed copies of the services performed were very difficult to read but I was able to determine the left 5/8 bank cam variator was broken and that was the reason for the repairs. I assume the timing belt snapped. I am trying to contact the seller to get him to let the dealership disclose all information to me regarding the history of the car. BTW the reason I am so interested is the price along with the color combo. Yellow/Black with 6 spd and Tubi exhaust the only options I really wanted. He has other stuff on the car which I really could care less about, like upgraded stereo and the challenge grill. I don't think I'll be listening to the stereo that often anyhow, just like in my GTS. :green: I will keep you posted whether the deal goes through or not. Again, thanks for the input.

Got to talk to the service manager at Ferrari of San Diego. The cam variator failed on one side bending the valves ie the reason for the top end overhaul. He said it is normal for the flywheel to be replaced with clutch work since this flywheel was a 3 bolt design. Also had nothing but good things to say about the car. :green: Once the deal goes through, I will let you all know. Looking forward to becoming a member of the prancing horse brotherhood :green: Again, thanks all for the replies.
