    Hello All,
    My 99 F355 Speedometer read 10 mph when I am not moving. Is this a
    do it yourself fix, or do I need to add this to my list of things for the Ferrari dealership visit? Thanks in advance for any advice!

    There is nothing wrong with your speedometer. The needle rest on a pin which is at the 10 MPH position.

    Oh you are right!, I just used a flash light and I see it now. All the nagging little problems are driving me nuts, now I am seeing problems when they are not really there! Thanks, I guess I can go back to looking for answers about the other stuff before I ask here.

    I do not understand why they would put the pin at 10, and not 0. Well, I lived in Italy for many years so maybe I should be more understanding..... thanks again! --tony

    Thats why they look like they are going fast when they are standing still.

  5. Speaking of nagging problems. Does anyone else with an F355 have what appears to be rust bubbles on the small triangle shape thingy near he back of the windows?

    Damn, I just checked mine and both have little black bubbles around them. If you get any private messages on a solution, please post them,
    thanks!
