    After a couple mixups by the trucking company, my car arrived on Monday. (I know it's Thursday, but I just got a couple pictures today. :) ) Anyway, we had some pretty bad weather on Monday and Tuesday, so yesterday was the first time I got to take her out. I am still getting used to the car, but I can tell this is going to be a lot of fun. Every time I walk by the window at work I am still surprised to see a 328. I could sit here and stare at it all day.
    Overall, I think this is a great car. I love the way it rides, handles, sounds and smells. Especially the way it sounds.

    Well, here are a couple pics.

    Beautiful 328 GTS, the S4 next to her isn't bad either. :)

    Congratulations! But it's a bit jarring to see a Ferrari surrounded by snow....

    Ironically, Tuesday was the first anniversary of my F-car arriving in my driveway, so I know how you feel. Che bella macchina!

    Congrats on your delivery!! You are going to have a great time with it.
    Save up some money for gas since you are going to be doing a lot of driving :)

    Thanks everyone.

    Overall the car is in great shape. There are a couple issues (as with any of them I am sure), such as the drivers seat needing to be dyed and the lock on the passenger door needing to be fixed. But, the guys at Naples Motorsports are taking care of everything. So far it has been a great experience.

    tvu - I'll definitely start putting some money aside for gas, since I plan on driving the hell out of this thing. :) A garage queen this will NOT be.

    I'll post some more pics once I get some good ones.

    Congrats Jay! This means you will be joining us soon for our NorthShore runs.... That will be great! Our 328's are almost identical but mine is a Euro....

    I know of a couple of guys who can do the leather dye job and come to you, rather than the other way around.... Let's talk soon!

    Again - my congratulations! You got a FINE car there, buddy! Enjoy it !

    Hey Brandon,

    I have been looking forward to going on the North Shore runs since before I even found a car. I already voted for my choice of days in the NE section.

    I actually have a guy lined up to do the dye work. His name is Mike Becker and I believe he is out of Peabody. He will come to me as well and came highly recommended from Baystate Motorsports and Naples Motorsports.
    I appreciate the offer though.

    Feel free to pm or email me if you plan on getting any good rides in before May.

    Take care

    Thanks, I'll take you up on that.... This weekend is out as we are expecting hard rains....

    Perhaps next weekend if it is nice on Sunday.... I'll be away after that until the weekend of the 23rd....

    I'm looking forward to seeing your new 328 - ours will look like twins! LOL
