    Now I understand the Ferrari mystique....my car just came in this morning and I can't stop grinning....what a raw, heart stopping experience it is driving this thing. Oh man I can't believe I have a red Ferrari parked in my garage right now!!!!!!!!!!

    I have to say I am truly impressed by the folks over at Intercity who delivered my car.....great people and it took them four days to get my car from N. Carolina to LA.

    Here is a crappy cell phone pic. The only thing that made me frown this morning was driving it up my drive-way....damn the thing scrapes!!! My driveway isn't even that steep and it scraped the front spoiler when I drove her in....agh man.

    But oh man I'm in love. The car looks and drives great...a big Thank You to the folks over at Sport Auto.

    Hmm is the car lowered? At factory height I have had no issues scraping it, just make sure to take the car in at a 45 degree angle and at 1-2mph and you should be fine.

    Oh and congratulations!

    It looks like the car's suspension was set at "sport" setting. If I move to comfort would that help?

    I never take mine off sport setting but on factory suspension I'm not sure how you are scraping unless these driveways are very very steep which you mentioned they are not. Are you driving the car straight in or are you going at a 45 degree angle?

    Beautiful 355. Your gonna love it. Mine scrapes sometimes as well, just take every driveway at at angle and most times you will be OK, still get the skid plates.

    Looks like we are in for some great weather this week in California, have fun!!

    Yeah, always take the car up at an angle on any incline where it has the potential of scraping and make sure you are taking it slow (less than 5mph)

    You shouldn't have any issues with scraping anymore unless it's just REALLY REALLY steep.
