You were going well until the last sentence.

Personally I think 360 is excellent value and if you want one don't wait too long.
They may have already bottomed out.

I agree Steve they are a great car. I have toyed with selling mine before but once I put the Stradale TCU into it , the car became a different beast. They are still fairly raw to drive and are a lot of fun. Big Bang for your buck when you think a fully loaded Landcruiser is the same sort of money. Terry if I were you find a good one and pull the trigger .....They are friendly on maintenance and you will have a huge amount of fun......👍👍

Thanks for the feedback, I thought the comments were a little unjustly negative, maybe I missed the tone and humor.
Do the forum know the manual 2002 spider currently on Carsales, something like that would be nice, I note your Oz and Uk delivered comments, being an ex POME, I am aware of those potential issues, but I am not a flipper, just want a nice driver to keep, long term.

Terry,

this is an example of the best long term ownership proposition, locally delivered manual coupe:

https://www.carsales.com.au/private/...-4410589/?Cr=1

You'd probably get it for $130K and, provided it hasn't had accidents or major mechanical issues, you'll have no trouble getting your money back a few years down the road.

As Ian said, try for an Aussie delivered 360, and a three pedal manual, unless you are hell bent on an F1, in which case you should be looking at a 430 as the F1 was the last iteration of that system and the most refined. There are a couple of red spiders and one yellow one, all manuals, on Carsales at the moment. Get the best one you can afford and go for the 'sellable' colour combinations. You'll be glad you did when times comes to sell.

Thanks for the Info. I live in Nelson Bay, 50k north of Newcastle (NSW), who would be good for a PPI ( Pre Purchase Inspection)?

Andrea Vitale director is the most experienced Ferrari and Maserati Specialist in Sydney, he has gained a wealth of knowledge due to his 36+ years experience within the luxury & high performance sector of the motor trade. With a passion for Italian cars, he has been tuning and modifying cars most of his life. Andrea joined Maserati Australia in 1987 and was committed to the company for the next 18 years. During this time the Maserati and Ferrari dealerships were combined under Italia Motori and Andrea became Service and Technical Manager and responsible for a team of 5 technicians as well as customer liaison. Andrea has gained knowledge by attending numerous manufacturers’ courses in Modena-Italy for both Ferrari and Maserati including operation of all computer diagnostic systems, SD1, SD2 and SD3, ST5 all of which are owned and operated in our workshops. Andrea left the main dealer network after many years & having built up an extensive & loyal customer database, he decided to launch his own service centre and has never looked back.* With years of experience and knowledge he has successfully built up a great reputation (internationally) for being able to diagnose and fix problems with cars where others had tried and failed.

Joking aside, 360 is probably the best value for money Ferrari currently out there. A well sorted example is a relatively modern, quick, comfortable, easy to drive and live with car. A number of things needs to be checked prior to handing over money, but they are well documented in 360/430 section and in numerous threads on here. Just have a read and come back with any specific questions you may have.
