Hello all and thanks for the wealth of knowledge on these boards. I'm brand new here and have been lurking for a few days, soaking up the info. I'm 25 and live in Charlotte, NC. Currently drive an '03 E320 Mercedes. Not a Ferrari owner... yet. I've been infatuated with these cars since I was a kid and am bound and determined to own at least one. I'd love to be in a 360, but there's too much to pay for right now- getting married in a few months, just bought a house, etc. If disposable income allows, I'd like to pick up a "weekender" sometime in the not-too-distant future. Cost is my limiting factor, as least for today, and I've noticed quite a spread in the cars that I am looking at for my initial purchase- 308's, 328's. I'm looking for something that doesn't require a lot of work and I've been steered towards the 328's. So, all that being said, I'm looking for some advice to consider while researching my purchase. I don't want to spend north of $40k, and would love it if I could stay in the mid-to-upper $20's (can a 308 or 328 be had for that?). If you were in my situation, what would you be looking for (model, year) and why? Any suggestions on where 'deals' may be found? Thanks in advance for everyones consideration. I'm looking forward to contributing here some day.
