    Just wanted to confirm the following:

    Cambelts on a 355 and 360 should be done every 18K miles or 3 years.
    Annual services should be done very 6 miles or once a year (which ever comes sooner). The major service is to be carried out every 18K miles...
    Is the above correct...? Just need to cofirm thats all......

    I believe it is 3 years or 30K miles - whichever comes first... Oil changes every 3/5K miles or 1 time per year.

    Are the belts due every 30K miles/three years on 360s/355...?

    355 - 32k or 3 years Cambelt (its actually 50,000kms intervals)
    Services are: 1st at 6250, thereafter at 20,000 KILOMETRE intervals i.e. 12500 (so it goes: 6250, 18500, 31250)

    Service intervals are identical on the 360. I think all yellow service book cars have same service intervals (I'm pretty sure thats what the dealer told me, although I could be mad, or was dreaming, or whatever)

    There's no mention of oil services in the manual or service book, I assume these are covered by an annual service if you do not rack up the mileage. I suppose you do not really need an oil service as the cars (my 355 did and my 360 is the same) go through about a litre of oil every 1k miles. I've never had an annual service, all of mine were mileage services, and I was advised that an oil service isnt really necessary if you do mileage in the cars, just make sure you check the oil on at least a weekly basis, if not more if you are on a long continental drive.

    According to the Ferrari U.K. website.
    Cam belts for 355 3 yrs or 32k miles
    Cam belts for 360 3 yrs or 31250 miles?
    I guess the 750 miles makes all the difference!!!!!

    fwiw, my 360 owner's manual says 5 years / 30K miles. I think FNA is trying to get people do change the belts every 3 years just to keep the dealers happy!
