    Hello Everyone! After 15 years on this site I have finally bought my 02 360 F1! All those years of watching members buying and selling cars, and enjoying their hard work motivated me to keep working harder and now I finally have my own Ferrari without fear of maintenance bills, repairs, etc. To all the lurkers out there, forget the place holder cars and save up for the Ferrari...you will thank me later.

    The crew at Marshall Goodman were a breeze to work with and North Coast Exotics performed a great PPI for me. I have already put 700 miles on her, and she runs like a champ. I have tucked her away for the winter but look forward to the spring when I can go on plenty of drives with the community and gain new friends :) . Ferraris are truly a dream and drive like no other car. I have driven the 488, 570s, 720s, etc but the 360 was the first car I really wanted, and it feels amazing to actually have it........it's the keeper!!!

    Along with the annual service and fixing whatever I break on the car, an S-line exhaust and headers will be the first order of business :) . The perfect Christmas present to myself.

    Very nice! Congratulation on a dream come true! Make sure you put some gas stabilizer in the gas tank before you tuck her in.

    Recognize that area. I used to live up in Clarkston and flew out of PTK. Enjoy the car and new exhaust

    Congratulations man. Recent 360 owner here too (I used to browse this site as a teenager and now posting as an owner many years later).

    They are great cars and even in winter I get you’ll enjoy just looking at it and sitting in it enjoying the aroma of all that Italian leather.

    One thing I’ve learned is that it takes commitment to save up and buy a first Ferrari and it also takes commitment to own one and keep it right. The rewards are there for sure though and 100% can endorse your decision. Enjoy in good health !

    Agreed! However, having a Ferrari that you can't drive is like going to the strip club and all the women are wearing sweater vest and pants....

    Definetly, do you have a brand that you recommend?

    Thanks! I love the roads in Clarkston, and the friendly cops are a bonus.
    Thanks! The color reallly shows the lines in person.
    100% agreed! The smell of the leather, the way the steering wheel fits in your hands, it's hard not to just stand in the garage and just stare at it. I had a guy at a gas station ask me if I was afraid of the maintenance. I told him my divorce cost me 77k and my favorite daily driver.......there was silence after that :)

    I might be able to take it out once the snow and salt get washed away, but you can never trust Michigan weather.

    The Tubi shifting at redline does that to us!!!
    Agreed!
    Thanks, it's going to take away to sink in that it's mine. I keep feeling like I have to give it back to a rental company...lol. Having this much fun should be illegal.

    Welcome aboard and enjoy it! Yes, in addition to normal maintenance you’ll have a few surprises along the way, but Cest le vie, like a fine watch, you’re now the caretaker of something fine. The Modena vs the Spider eliminates the complexity of the top which for me has had a few surprises...

    I know what you mean, I feel the same way. I just got mine back in mid August and it still doesn't seem real.
