    Tommy, we told you about this, tell him that this is just your diorama in your office, he'll think that it's a real car. ;-)

    Had I been able to find a black and tan 308 GTS QV, I might have gone that way. I think the spoiler, running lights and mirrors all look better on the Euro version. Very nice car, Sir.

    Where did you buy it from?

    88 is a great year, maybe the "perfect" year. Some updates but concave wheels. Metallic black. Love it!

    Is this your first Ferrari? You're going to love it. It's not perfect, more like a toy than a real car. But man oh man, really fun to drive and the 328 looks like a million dollars. It's the perfect looking car, everyone loves it when they see it in real life.

    Just be cool when you drive it. It's no 488 but you still can get in trouble. :p

    Tommy,

    Wheredidya mount the switch for your Cibe 'Running Lights?'

    And HOW did you mount the lights themselves?

    A couple of pics would be GREAT.

    THANX.

    The switch is a little off the shelf thing from an Autozone that is just lying in the ashtray. I didn't want to mount it where you could see it because I wanted to keep things stock appearing for the most part AND I didn't want to drill a hole somewhere, not even in the ashtray. I mounted the lights by simply screwing both lights to a flat piece of metal that extended a few inches vertical behind the light. Then I loosened the bumper, slit it forward a bit and pushed the metal bar up between the bumper and the mounting area it sits against on the car and just tightened the bumper back down. No holes drilled. Not a one.

    That is also the perfect pic to show the convex vs concave wheels.

    It is an acquaintance who usually does high end motorcycles and the occasional sport car. This was his first Ferrari.
