    I don't wont to sound like a spoiled brat but after 8 years of dreaming ,and 8 months of looking at too many crappy 355'S I FOUND ONE ,AND i THINK ONE OF THE BEST ARROUND !!The car came today and as the guy took it of the truck it started to snow ,see the white spots!!! Right now there is 6 in. on the ground and no end in site,oh well I will just have to sit in the car and make motor sounds and hope the snow melts fast

    Congratulations on the purchase. Sorry to hear about the bad timing but just think how well you can detail/clean up the car now that you are stuck in your house until Sunday night;). The first storm of the season is never fun, especially when the weathermen are now calling fro up to 30 inches in some areas!!

    mondial86.....There are a lot of people here that would like to be in your position. Though I own a decent Ferrari, I can't say I'm not one of them. Maybe a bite of humble pie is in order.

    excellent choice! thats actually a perfect example of what will be my first ferrari. dont let the weather get you down, just sit in the garage and rev the engine (with the garage door open of course); nothing sings quite like an f355 to me!

    Mondial, congratulations, this is awesome...! Are you keeping the Mondial...?

    When i saw the title of the thread, for a minute i thought you had just acquired the car and didn't like it... Weather, unfortunately, is beyond our control... i hope it clears up soon so that you can get that beast on the road...! :)

    Please post more pictures and, when the weather clears, tell us about your first drive in it...

    The day my first arrived by Horseless Carriage it was raining hard. I was upset at first but after it got all good and wet, I figured what the hell. I took my wife and each of my two daughters for a ride seperately of course. The car was a mess but I just couldn't help it. It was cold so I had to wait a few days to clean it up. It was parked in the garage filthy dirty and I looked at it and just smiled.

    here's the silver lining:
    While it's snowing and your not drivng it, NOW is a good time to send it down to Norwood's! Twin Turbo upgrade, Motec, Intercoolers, heavier valve springs, bigger injectors, race tuned suspension, and 500 whp! Yahooooooo!!!
    Seriously, Congrats!

    Bummer about the snow. Get the q-tips out and clean the vents!
    I picked my 355 up in Kentucky a few months ago on a beautiful fall day. I drove it home and loved every minute of it. Went by a client's horse farm in Kentucky (big time). My average speed picked up every 100 miles. I got passed by a hot blonde in a Tiburon doing 120. Not to be out done I downshifted and goosed it - caught up but let her slip away as traffic approached. She must have hit 140! Crazy broad. Isn't that a Hyundai??

    I had a BMW 2002 just like yours in college a '74. Are those round tail lights or rectangular??!!

    Just think of it as dating the sexiest lady on the planet and deciding to wait to get married before having sex. When that day comes watch out!

    Congrats, she looks beautiful - I don't see a cot in the garage - what's the matter with you?

    Mondial86 - Great car. I know about the snow I live in Denver, but hey you have a Ferrari and a warm garage. What I do when it snows and can't drive I sit in my Ferrari, have a beer and listen to a sound track of a 360 trying to catch an F50 (Virtual driving).
    Have a great time with your car.

    Like DES, I read the title and thought that you hated the car! Glad that's not the case. Be patient. This weather will pass. Here's a pic I took yesterday of Teterboro airport.

    Hey congratulations. The 355 is THE car I would love to have. Have a Mondial now (only an 82) but want an 86 or later. Timing is not right though. Meanwhile, my wife loves the 2002, so you have a "dream" garage.
    Good luck, enjoy.
