    For Sale or trade is my Swatters Blue F355. I've had this car for about 11 years and its history is pretty well documented on Ferrari chat. I have its complete history and service records from new. It's had 4 30K services in its life, the last one finished in May of 2015. The last 30K included all new Hill Engineering tensioner bearings, Belts, water pump, and a bunch of other things. The exhaust setup is Maranello X-Ost with Hyperflow Cats, and many people have said this is the best sounding Ferrari they have ever heard. I also have the Capristo Exhaust bypass valve. The leather seats are pristine because I had the leather replaced about 6 years ago. It also has a set of nearly new OEM floor mats which have become very difficult to locate.
    I have all of the original parts including the OEM Exhaust, working cats, the OEM Sony radio (Which is very hard to find and expensive if you can find it), bypass valve, and anything else I took off or replaced. I even have the original leather from the seats.
    Most of the sticky items have been replaced over the years with a more permanent solution.
    Comes with complete and pristine toolkit and a full set of books.
    Also has all three key fobs and pin code.

    70K OBO, or trade with some cash for a 430 or something else interesting.

    Gorgeous Spider! I love these in blue/tan!

    But you should have stopped at 30999 miles. That '1' is going to cost you!

    (but this is in good jest, GLWS!)

    Funny. I thought when I first turned it over 20k, it was going to be the end of the world. Somewhere on here is the picture I posted of that.

    Here is mine from a couple days go ;)
    With this pic in the thread people will think yours is "low mileage" because it is .........
    Good luck with the sale/trade.

    I put my parent's '97 Spider over 40k and my dad visibly and audibly cringed from the passenger's seat. Something mental about those big digit rollovers... But honestly no different than 34,567 to 34,568 miles...

    I’ve lowered this to 60k for a quick sale so I can get into my next Ferrari. I’ve had some pretty creative trade offers, just not the right ones for me yet.

    Mwhitesell, I'm interested. Your post says your car is pretty well documented here, but for the life of me I can't figure out the dashboard on this new fchat mobile layout. Can you please either describe, or point to the descriptions of this documentation?

    Tell me all about it.

    Yes. It has become more difficult to find things as they have tried to monetize the site.
    I meant that over the years I have published and described a bunch of things that I have done to the car, along with descriptions to help others do the same. From clutch work, the leather seats, exhaust, and a bunch of other things over 11 years. Also from different events I’ve attended over the years in my different Ferrari’s. Just search my posts.
    I’ll PM my phone number to you. Just call me and I can answer any other questions you have.

    Swatters Blue looks fabulous on the F355 Spider! At this price I imagine you will find a buyer or willing trade partner very soon. GLWS
