    Hey there, I would like to introduce my self I am Zooby from Sacramento CA. I recently purchased a 2004 Ferrari F360 Modena from a private owner down in Naples Florida. It is Grigio Titanio exterior with Bordeaux interior. This is my first Ferrari, first exotic car so its quite exciting and nerve wrecking at the same time. Anyways I am looking forward to putting some mileage on the car once it arrives to CA. Would love to meet any local NorCal members on this forum at some point in time (once things settle down). Anyways I'll post some pics and would love to chat with you all.

    Stay safe!

    Congrats! I had an '02 360, Grigio Tianio, but with blue interior. IMHO, still a great looking car, and a blast to drive. If you have the stock exhaust, it is worth looking into the OEM sport exhaust, or one of the aftermarket exhausts.

    Hey lee-o thanks for sharing. Yeah I would love to get my hands on an OEM sports exhaust but after doing some research on these forums it's like finding a unicorn. Those exhausts are almost non existent. The one I'm looking for at least which comes standard in the CS and some regular 360s were lucky enough to have them optioned out with that. But capristo stage 3 is music to my ears as well. Bit of a sticker shock when I see how much exhausts costs for a Ferrari versus "regular" cars.. But I guess it is what it is ‍♀️

    I had the CS exhaust, for some reason Ferrari was running a special on it at the time I had it installed, and I was having some insurance work done which covered a new exhaust system. The CS exhaust, was actually less than the original exhaust. Who would have thought that...The exhaust systems for Ferraris are very expensive, but then again, the fixed costs are spread across relatively few sales. There are sound bites of several exhausts for the 360 you can find online and listen. Some are built better than others, but many come with lifetime guarantees, so much of the choice boils down to which one sounds best to you. If you go for long drives, keep in mind that a loud exhaust or one that drones can wear on you after a couple of hours.

    Also, the sport exhausts (including the CS) have much less insulation within the mufflers, so check on whether the mfg offers heat shielding to protect nearby components.
