Hi, I finally got my 348 going again after I broke the gear-shift lever weeks ago. I posted my plight & a few F-chatters helped me source for parts. Thanks guys! Just a general question, my gears are a bit tricky at times to engage. Especially, the 1st gear while moving off. I need to de-clutch a few times to engage the 1st gear (I'll probably break the lever again if I force!) but sometimes it just engage without problems. It happens while changing up & down gears at times but I'll just put a bit more force into them. The reverse gear is always easy. The gear box is leaking lightly but my mechanic says it's well & oil is topped-up. Is this normal on Ferraris or a worn gear box? I'm a first time Ferrari owner. I'll be keeping it for a while so I would like to tune it properly. I'm also shopping for suspension, exhaust, engine, brake upgrades. Any 348 owners care to help?
