I asked about the modern 355 driving experience against the 328 classic expereince, Rob B posted this.... Thought I might canvas other opinions, Might swap the 328 for a 355 - No offense to all you guys who have 360's, I know there great cars, But just not my cup of tea styling wise ! Am I way off, or does the modern driving sensation still have that supreme event that the 328 or 288 still holds for me......? Cheers, Steve good call- own a 355 and a 328 if you can! (and while you're at it, you should probably get a 550. And an F40 of course, Oh, and an RS6 Estate for every day or perhaps a Range Rover, and now I'm being silly, and dribbling...) However, budgetary constraints meant that the 328 had to go (sniff). I'd had the 328 for 4 yrs, and felt it was time for a change. I wanted a 355 mainly because I love the looks of it, and read all the the great reviews. I also loved the sound of the engine when I'd seen them out and about. You know the stats, so I don't need to tell you about the performance! It feels like an altogether more substantial car with all the trappings of modern life, and is a car in which I'd relish a 4 hr drive. But the first time you hear the sound of the engine when the cat bypass valve opens as you pass through a tunnel will have you (as it did me) reaching for your chequebook. The 355 feels less like a 'classic' Ferrari and I suppose feels therefore relatively less special. A bit morbid, but lets face it, the 328 is based on a 1976 design- would you really want to crash in it? Just a thought... the 355 has airbags and everything. However, the 355 does definitely not feel like an everyday car, and it is still a huge 'event' every time I drive it. And you still can't use 2nd until it warms up a bit! The 328 feels delicate and fragile, but gets a bit ragged in tough conditions where the 355 comes alive when you drive it hard. The feel of the 355's gearbox when changing fast at high revs is stunning. The 355's steering feels curiously light at low speeds, but perfectly weighted and feelsome when on the move. The 355 is certainly less 'tactile', but the fabulous overall driving experience is ample reward. They are utterly different to drive, hence my agreement with Philip's comments. I hope the above thoughts are useful. I know I felt very sad when I waved my 328 off with its new owner. However, a quick trip down the road in the 355 passing under my friendly neighbourhood railway bridge in 2nd at 8500rpm soon blew away the tears! In a nutshell, I'd be amazed if anyone regretted buying a 355. Start a separate thread- I'm sure there are many others who'd like to say their piece on the subject. Good hunting! Robert.
