    This is nice. Besides the painted wheels...but early car without airbag, carbon seats, manual...tick tick tick.

    Not to mention low miles and one owner since new.

    Besides the ugly shields and the painted wheels, this would be a top tier example and priced as such IMO.

    Was that a thing? 1994 possibly? This is probably one of the earliest examples ever to roll off the floor.

    Not sure, but looks good. Never seen a plane jane matching floor mat (matching to carpets) before. Looks better than the ones with the huge colored cavalinos.

    That's what my car has, solid color mats that match the carpet. I though anything else was after market.

    Like this (not my car).

    The ones you pictured John are the only factory original type. The 348 spider came with the same type as well with the rubber heel. The ones pictured that Ken mentions are aftermarket.

    I saw this.

    Can't figure out if regular 355's are overpriced right now or if Challenge cars are a bargain? :D

    Yes. Im aware of the ones with the rubber insert. However, my question was more of... is it possible VERY early 355’s didnt get floor mats with the rubber insert, but rather just plain jane ones. I’ve never seen plane jane ones in the after-market, let alone ones that actually match the carpet.

    I'm not getting an oem vibe from those, I feel as well that they are aftermarket. The way they are sitting would not be surprised if the originals are underneath.

    It is not possible. As the 348 predates the F355 and it still had the rubber heel with cavallino.

    Bid on the red '96 on pcarmarket currently at $105k with a day left to go. I'm biased of course, but think mine presents quite a bit nicer from a mechanical standpoint. Resale red and low miles...
    Perhaps I should try BAT

    Bid jumped for 55 to 105 in one bid. Something fishy. :rolleyes:

    Now it is at $125k. Might as well hit a quarter million in a few hours

    This makes me feel much better about "overpaying" for the 13k mile one I'm looking at right now that is a rare spec. Lol
