    I am looking for a 360 Modena Coupe with a 6MT transmission that I can drive daily and let it breathe the way it was designed to!

    Car has to have been properly maintained with yearly oil changes, brake flush and so on with records. Prefer a US spec but open to Euro. Clean title and CarFax a must.

    Exterior colors are silver, grigio, grey and blue. Prefer a tan interior but open to other interior colors. I am looking to drive this car, so miles are encouraged. Budget is from $60’s to mid $70's for a vehicle with 30k miles. As mentioned I really want to drive this car daily.

    So, if you have a 360 Modena Coupe gated just sitting in your garage collecting dust and not being driven please contact me via PM.

    It will go to a very good home!

    Thank you!

    Thanks for sending! This was actually the first car I went to check out when my search started. The gentleman selling is very nice guy. Unfortunately the car isn’t in the best shape. Stickies, original clutch, needs a major, and makes an odd sound from the transmission while cruising at over 60 mph. The biggest thing I was disappointed was that there’s no mention that the front wheel caught the fender and separated the fender.

    Think the car is a $60k car but the owner is firm on his $75.

    Hi everyone, been a member here for quite some time now but don't own a Ferrari, I'm happy to say I'm now officially looking for a 360 much like what 550nitis listed except not really locked in on the year of the car.

    Be patient you shall find what you want and you will know it immediately. Now don’t let those butterflies confuse your brain. Always get a Pre Purchase Inspection ( PPI). Depending on where it’s performed it can run $350-500, money well spent. Additionally you may have to pay for the car to be transported there and back. Any Ferrari owner that doesn’t allow you to have a PPI at a shop of your choice should raise red flags. Also give your self an additional $10K just in case you need work done. Good luck with your search. You will love the smiles per gallon once you own one.

    Patients patients patients! Key words here. Think I’m almost there as I have a deposit on a car going to ppi on Friday. Hope fully it will check out. This will be my third ppi and must say I have learned a lot about what to look for specially on the tensioner issue and what to listen for when they go bad. I have also met some great peeps on the way but best of all is the tremendous support from the great members of this forum.

    This is what I’m having them check out:
    Body:
    Is there play in the door hinges?
    Are the mirrors secure? Is there play in them?
    Cracks in windshield?
    Visible Body work?


    Mechanical:
    Oil Leaks? Cams?
    Water Pump?
    Hose conditions?
    Oil Hoses?
    Belts?
    Overall motor condition?
    Engine and transmission mounts?
    Radiator condition?
    Oil.Trans/Steering Coolers?

    Chassis:
    Rotor Condition?
    Brake bads?
    Leaks?
    Tires?


    Front Suspension:
    Upper ball joint
    Lower ball joint
    Tie Rods?
    Sway bar front
    Shocks front
    Shock bushing
    Control arm bushing
    Wheel bearing play?

    Rear Suspension:
    Upper ball joint
    Lower ball joint
    Tie Rods?
    Sway bar front
    Shocks front
    Shock bushing
    Control arm bushing
    Wheel bearing play?

    Interior:
    A/C Cold?
    Headliner?

    Driving:
    Clutch?
    Sport?
    ASR?
    Warning lights while driving?

    WOW is all I can say!!!!!!!!! I wanted either , red (Corsa) ,black or yellow 3 pedal 360 and had to have black leather. I found a yellow one that I love but its a hard choice between the red. I hope the PPI works out for you, you will love the car and the joy it brings. I love the front plate holder so you don't have to drill holes.

    Unfortunately the dealer refuses to have the car ppi so therefore the sale will not go through. Still looking!

    That is a HUGE red flag (unless there was unreasonable requests to move it somewhere they didn't like?)

    Best to keep looking, you'll find a good one, with a solid PPI, and the feeling of comfort involved in having one before purchasing.

    Huge red flag. The place of the ppi was less than a miles from dealer (Original Applewood in BC, Canada) and one that they recommended. So obviously there must of been an issue they were not disclosing.

    Done searching for a 360, the search has been exhausting. Usually these things are fun but some people just think there cars are the greatest and latest. Then you get a car fax and a to ppi and guess what!

    The last 7 months have seen numerous cars with two going to ppi. One came clean but had a discrepancy in the amount of owners and then I realized I was paying too much, second one came with over $24k in repairs and a third one with a dealer refusing to do a ppi.

    Have to say met some really nice people on the way and also some super shady and rude. Thank you guys for all the help but I’m done with the 360 search.

    Taking the cash and placing on some nice blue chips.

    Sorry to hear about everything you went through.

    I think it’s this type of experience that will continue to weigh on 360 prices. I started looking there, but have slowly moved towards the 430 with the f1, even though I prefer the overall look of the 360. I gave up the search for a manual because for the premium they command I can purchase an f1 and a 2nd cheap fun manual car to mess around in.

    I’d love a early year 458, but after looking at the total cost of interest I decided to either wait, or go with the 430. Even though I can afford the payments I am a cost guy, so I have a hard time ignoring numbers and making a full emotional purchase! Personally, I’d rather invest the difference.

    You can never go wrong investing (over the long run), hope yours pay off!
