    We'll the interminable wait is over. A couple of quick photos to start with. Only driven about 40 miles so far mostly in Friday holiday traffic. The impressions on driving are going to have to wait. It *just* makes it over my drive being a good deal lower than the old 360 - probably 1/2" clearance!

    I'm so pleased, off to happily read my new owners manual.

    Beautiful! Congratulations. We need to get the east coast Stradales together someday.

    One hint: the air bag sticker on my car (alcantara interior) peeled off safely. I peeled it gently and slowly, then brushed the alcantara with my hand to eliminate the remaining traces of it. The launch control warning sticker on the center console is also a thin sticker, but I have not yet tried to remove it.

    The run-in period takes forever ....

    Thou shall not covet thy neighbors goods. Especially thy striped goods.

    Too late!

    Enjoy, Dan!

    (We tore up and re-graded our driveway for the Ferrari clearance problem. Extreme, but worth it in the end.)

    We did the same from our old gravel driveway when I got the 360. But the CS is noteably lower, plus there's about an extra 3-4" of projection at the front that makes it v.v. close :)

    I would not have been pleased to re-do the driveway again!

    great car - no radio and it looks like you passed on the vibrating fire extinguisher - you will have fun

    yes the air bag sticker comes off nicely - I was worried at first but no damage at all

    the launch control warning sticker is a pain in the rear - no way to peel it off - I had to use an adhesive remover to get it done - don't do it before you are fully committed and test whatever stuff you use at some invisible location – launch control warning sticker – shh – what’s next

    First impressions are very good - the car feels much more glued and better damped than the regular 360. Amazing difference really. No chance to really stretch it out, just a few outings to 5 or 6K, so no comment on the exhaust at max rpm yet - its certainly not as bass rich or "woofly" at low rpms as the Tubi I had before.

    The F1 system is fab, great changes and the race mode is fab even at 6000rpm, can't wait to bang in a change at 8500.

    I love the key - maybe I can pretend I have an Enzo in the bar.

    can you take a good close-up picture of the F1 championship plaque and post it? also, a good close-up picture of the 50th anniversary goody on the console. i got my stradale in february and i was surprised that the F1 plaque did not include "2003" and i did not get the 50th anniversary emblem on the console.

    thanks :)

    Yep - Scuderia, No Radio - pure baby! It looks tremendous in the sun.

    Will take some photos of the badges tomorrow. It does have the 50th anniversary and the 2003 championship badge.

    Dan:

    That is a nice mailbox in the background!! Did you make that? The car looks gorgeous, congratulations. I think it is the best looking 360 I have seen in pictures (must be the stripe). Now all you need to do is come and see me for a detail;).
