    98 355 GTB
    Showroom condition throughout.
    1 owner 15K miles, 15K service just done.
    Straightforward history, bought at dealer, serviced there
    too.
    Asking $99K which is too high.
    Whats a resonable offer?
    Thanks,
    Jon

    PS... Inches away from the 355 promise land!

    Black on tan.
    I am looking over the 15K service history right now and don't see a
    clutch. Just seeing gaskets, rings and belts.

    Would you have a part number? Or does it start with a number,
    maybe I can look it up that way. But I don't see a clutch in the
    description anywhere.

    I dont see a clutch or double disc clutch on there.
    So $80-$85K... Sounds good.
    Much much is a new clutch and how many hours does it
    take to replace? Thanks.

    Bruce,

    This is a car I am very interested in.
    Can you suggest anything else I should look for?
    I have the service records from the dealer, and have not
    seen it in person. Planning to next week.

    Thsnks,
    Jon

    Pay attention to the exhaust system on these cars. Check the headers and cats very closely. They have a history of cracking and early wear. Also while you are at it find out the engine number and research if this particular motor has been flagged for valve guide problems. More than likely it hasn't, but that is another touchy issue with the 355. Dont sweat the clutch too much. Hopefully the previous owner was a good driver!!! :)

    Sorry for the many questions.
    Very close to deal and I am so excite I cant sleep!

    How much are for valves/cats? The hours involved.
    Just trying to get an idea so I can negiotiate on asking price.

    Also, I assume if they were repl\aced, it would say valves or cats
    under the description in the histroy?

    Thanks,
    Jon

    For the 355 my mechanic does the clutch service without engine in/out.
    Maybe the TR needs a engine out job for a new clutch?
