    Well after lucking in the background for some time and sucking up all the amazing information you guys have posted, I took the plunge (In the Deep End you may say!!) and got my first Ferrari.
    Picked her up on Saturday morning, loaded her up same day... and then drove her from London to Portsmouth, across the ferry into Spain, up all the way through France and back to England again! (Stopping here and there obviously).
    Absolutely no problems... apart from a loose wheel bearing which got fixed for me by 4 French engineers who were more excited than me! - We all looked up the problem and solution on this forum and they were V. Impressed!
    Anyway just thought I’ll share the pictures with you guys and tell you that the car loved the journey and was a pleasure to drive!!
    I’ll get more details for you regarding the serial numbers (I know Robbie will probably want them! - Although we haven’t talked before, it seems like I know you already!)
    Hello to all and hope I can make some useful contribution at some point!

    1995 GTB
    2.7 Mo
    Rosso Red - Cream Interior
    2 Seats and a Big Engine!

    Welcome Dan! I hope your F355 brings you many years and miles of pleasure. Take good care of it and it will, in turn, take good care of you. Read, ask and learn. There are some incredibly knowledgeable individuals on FChat.

    BTW, it's amazing how a European background adds so much class to a picture of a Ferrari.

    I was thinking the same thing. You don't get that feel in typical North American pics - beautiful.
