    That's a beauty!

    The 348 is one of the most photogenic of all Ferraris, which evident here.

    Seconded!

    I didn’t see any reference to a major service, so guessing it’s unknown by the dealer/seller. Will be fun to watch where this goes.

    Those Speedlines are my favorite wheel on the 348.

    This is the same one that was for sale by Porsche of Austin a couple months ago. I believe they were asking $46k at the time. Car's been cleaned up since then.

    It's easy to get overwhelmed by the imagery and then miss the text. :)

    "The seller notes that there is no record of a timing belt or water pump service."​

    So, based on that, and the chipped red paint on the valve covers, I'd say that a full service is due.

    Is the seller, "Wob" a broker? Is he on here? He lists a lot of cars for sale. His silver GT4 a few weeks back was nice, and seems it should've sold for $56K+ fees. Interesting to see this 348 and where she goes, that blue is AMAZING.

    That is actually a very nice colour

    I’m not too fond of those wheels, but that’s just me - to each his own

    What's the deal with the rear wheels being so off-center in the wheel wells? I've noticed that on some, but not all, 348s. This one seems to be particularly bad though. Is it correctable?

    Wrong offset. Happens with 360 wheels for example. Several ways to correct yes.

    The ts I had looked a bit like that after installing the Hill 25mm rear spacers. While they inproved the high speed handling considerably, I didn't care for the aesthetics. On the other hand, the stock setup made the wheels look too "tucked in".

    Here's my current tb (stock) compared to the blue car (ZFFFG36A7L0086274).

    Modulars look good in 2 places. 575s, and here. I totally dig the wheels, and I'll second that this was the Porsche of Austin car.

    Yeah I just don't like modulars on these cars, to me you need to get to 19 or bigger before modulars look good. I suppose that's why they make chocolate and vanilla.

    Just to be clear, I'm talking about the side view. The wheels are set forward in the wheel wells. Not sure how offset could affect that. I was wondering if there is maybe a large tolerance in the rear subframe mounting or maybe rear tow angle?

    +1. Agree. Usually not a fan, they look awesome on this car.

    That's possibly to do with the ride height. I agree though, some cars the rear wheels seem to sit forward in the arch.

    Okay, I see. There was a discussion (with photos) on the same recently but I can't find the thread.
