This is my first real question to the community at large and I hope I did the search right? Because I couldn't find anything to read about these questions? I've been looking into 'possibly' buying a 355 but I have some reservations. I will (hopefully) be able to afford to keep the Boxer and still buy a 1996/98 car, (If everything goes according to plan). I definately want a manual, don't like the flappy F1 shift, Prefer GTS but don't mind the Berlinetta's. My question is, What can and does go wrong, What sort of cost do you have to live with and just how good is the drive after the novelty factor has worn off ? Everytime I get the chance to drive the Boxer it's a fantastic event, and she's no slouch when she needs to pick her heels up, She's embarrassed quite a few 'Modern Supercars', Only when they've provoked her though. Thoughts ?
