    Well it all depends on the mileage and condition. I do own a 95 tb about 7 years now and I had a 30k service in 07/02, 2 clutches because I tracked the car 5-6 times a year, 1 set of front brake pads and reg. service such as oil change. Other than that, no problem at all with headers or valve guides and the car have been driven almost 23k happy miles as of today.

    Nice to see some positive posts on the 1995 F355. I have also enjoyed my 1995 for a few years now with just normal maintentance.

    I've had my F355 for 5 years. Other than my alternator problems that I have posted about, (which are now solved (knock on wood)) I have not had any problems. No valve guide issues, no melting or burned-thru exhaust manifolds, etc. I love the car, and I feel it is about at the bottom of its
    depreciation. With 360 coupes still going for substantially more than an F355, I think it is one of the best deals out there for a Ferrari.

    How many miles on her Jeff ?
    I assume its exercised regularly. I agree that a Well-Sorted 355 is a GREAT Ferrari ! My Cousins F1 360 Spider barely Pulls on me.He also paid nearly 2X as much.

    I've got one of the best 348 Spiders avail, IMHO. Check out Bobileff.com. '95 w/ <11,000 mi and fresh belt service. Great car. Hate to part ways with it!
