    Just wondered how many red/crema 355 spiders in manual were made in RHD for the UK market, because it seems mighty difficult to find a good one!

    Comments appreciated

    Mike Wheeler mentions on his site (http://www.rardleymotors.com/rardley/Sales/stocklist.htm) that there were 315 RHD Manual Spiders - lets say half were red and half of them were creme interior (as opposed to beige or black etc) - that gives you 80 cars - allow for write-offs and cars not for sale and it becomes clearer why you're struggling - I'm sure you'll find something soon

    I think it's probably nearer 80% red, and 80% of those with crema interior, which means circa 200 cars in the UK, still not a lot for the "common as muck" Ferrari! I've got a one owner (me) car in exactly the spec you want.....but you can't have 'cos I love it!
    :D TonyH is considering selling his, and I think his is manual, maybe try a pm to him.Don't forget my finders' fee, and I'll tap Tony up for a sellers' commission as well! Should pay a bit towards the next service!:D

    Good luck in your hunt, they're worth finding;)

    I've got one too that's for sale..............sorry NOT for sale.

    In fact, I know someone who'll be selling his very very soon - F430's due at the end of spring.

    If you look at my profile picture it's the second car - when you've seen one you've seen 'em all I know.

    PM me and I'll find out the spec if you wish

    I wish you were right, but I think we all know that car will get a cheap and cheerful repair and be in Autotrader as a "mint" car! Noone could afford to pay that price and repair the car properly, so there'll be one more dog on the road, and one more owner questioning Ferrari quality! The car has been written off, and in my opinion should stay that way!

    About 45% red, according to autotrader.

    31 RHD Spider for sale (nationwide)

    7 blue (various shades)
    6 yellow
    3 black
    1 silver
    14 red


    Most of the more expensive ones have crema hide - around 75% overall. So that makes about 80-100 rosso/crema 355 spiders.


    Oh.... and mines not for sale either :) So thats 5 or so more out !! :)

    well I am happy to say that subject to compression test I have found one from Graypauls in Nottingham. Now what do I have to look for with regard to the compression results?

    Regards
