    Great car! Really like the inserts on the seats; nice contrast.

    I agree with Gh21631 - you're screwed. I recently got a 430 and am already looking at a euro 308 and a 458. It becomes an obsession.....

    Congrats Joe. Love your Daytona seats, very nice car! I just bought my 360 in January. Had a 308 and 348, so the 360 is a dream to drive. And I love the F1, very happy with it!

    2x.... got my first Ferrari on February 29, 2016 - an 01 Spider F1 with 14.4K miles. Have always wanted one so I bought it as a 50th birthday present to myself.

    I'm still learning all I can by reading tech threads, identifying parts, parts houses, and finding a local shop to do the work I don't want or the means to do. I'm a seasoned enthusiast (engine rebuilds, brakes, axles, bodywork, electronics & electrical, fabrication & welding (MIG & TIG)) so there is little reluctance to work on her.

    In all, vehicle systems follow the same principles so it's a matter of understanding the peculiarities. Learning about this steed is an exhilarating as my enthusiasm has been reborn for the life-long journey. Thanks to forums like FC, I appreciate the knowledge base and experience shared by all.

    And when behind the wheel, do your project your "inner Schumacher"?

    Congrats. I know that feeling of driving away for the first time in your first Ferrari. Good thing is I don't believe it ever diminishes

    Congrats, Joe! I see you are just a few miles up the road from me in O'side. There are a number of (F-chat) 360 owners in North County now...we'll have to organize a drive one of these days!

    Shot in the dark but LMK if you want to swap wheels - I have the traditional 'starfish' wheels but I like the look of the 'modulars' that you have.

    Thank you all for the warm welcome. I am still having butterflies in my gut, and a little self conscious when driving it.

    Been reading through the manuals, cracking up with some of the way things are worded/translated. Lots to learn.

    Sandy Eggo, I will look forward to a group drive sometime.

    Thank you all!

    Great looking car. Love the rosso over beige with the red inserts plus CCB's. Enjoy her in good health.
