My friend has a 98 F355 F1. I inspected his car's interiors and to my surprise, his interiors (all black) were melting ! I don't know if you would call it plastic, but the surface of the aircon vents were peeling, the console in the middle with the small lever and ashtray cover were also getting deformed and kinda melted. I held the base of the steering wheel and my fingers actually got imbedded on the steering wheel column, it was like a touched wet paint. I now have my fingerprint on the steering column. I live in a warm country in Asia where the temperatures reach 100 degrees Farenheit on hot summer days. Are Ferrari interiors not built for tropical countries ? My old 308's interiors are perfectly fine. What's the difference with the 70's and late 90's interiors ?
