Hi guys, I've been a lurker here for a long time. I've wanted a Ferrari since I was 15 and I'm finally in a position where I can fit one into my life. I have probably the most common problem that comes up here, which is which one to buy. The 458 really speaks to me, but is at the top range of what I'd want to spend on one. F1 430's are well within budget and of course 360s as well. A stick shift 360 seems like it might be a smart play because I don't think they're going to get any cheaper, so even though the buy in is sort of high for being an older modern era car, I'm thinking it might make sense to cough up the money for a nice one since the resale will likely remain strong. The 355 is the one that started it all for me and I love the looks and obviously the sound, but the wife doesn't care for the looks at all, they're small inside, and from years of forum research, they seem to require a LOT of care and feeding to keep happy and I don't want something that's always got a long list of ongoing problems. Another issue I have in making a decision is that I've never been in a 360 at all. I've rented a couple 430's, a 458, a 488 and a few mclarens and got a very brief ride (passenger) in a F1 355 at a car show in st louis like 15 years ago, but have never experienced a 360. They seem to have completely disappeared from the rental market (I checked turo as well) so I don't seem to have the option of paying to get a ride in one to see if it is something I'd want to own. I was thinking it might be nice to meet some local Ferrari club members and talk to them first hand about their experiences and maybe get a ride in a 360. I probably wouldn't even need to drive it to know if it was for me or not, but I'd hate to buy one and find out there are things about it that are off putting enough to sour the experience. Theres a Continental GTC in my driveway right now that I rented on Turo and its a nice car, but the image of what I had of it in my mind is kind of far off of what it is actually like to drive and I don't want to buy a ferrari and wind up being unsatisfied with it. I have reservations about the F1 gearboxes as well (jerkiness at low speed kind of irritates me) but the 430's I've driven were smooth enough to satisfy me. TLDR On to the main point............I'm looking for a local club and when I search for Ferrari club of Houston, the link that comes up is for Ferrari club of America. It sounds like you sign up for FCA and they then hook you up with the local chapter, but this is all new to me. Is it worth it to join FCA to become part of the local Houston chapter or is there another owners group I should be looking to hook up with?
