Hi all, Im a total newbie on here, having just registered today. I am a current owner of an S2000, which has brought me many years of fun - its a truly wonderful car for its money and has an excellent community in the form of www.s2ki.com. Im an active member of that site and go to meets throughout the year. As can be seen from my `handle` Im based in Cheshire. Ive decided to start actively looking for a Ferrari. The S is wonderful, so much so that I feel a move to a completely different level will give me some more excitement. What am I asking from you people? Firstly, I know very little about the Ferrari marque, I wanted a 348 and visited Statstone in Manchester on Saturday; they spent 15 mins telling me just how awful a personal ownership proposition that is. Warning me about servicing, maintenance, generally keeping the beast on the road. I do not have `footballer` money, I`d say when I finally come to buy the car, Ill have about 40g to spend upon it. I also have a Passat as a `proper` car. Questions: Do you think 40g will get me a car of good quality? Would anybody in my area with experience mind spending sometime helping me with this (to me) unknown quantity? I notice there are some NW meets in the area; Id love to go see the odd car, maybe at a small one when the next pub type meet happens. A long time forum colleague (fellow S owner) Zero_to60 over on s2ki owns a Testarossa and has given me a little advice on there to help. Any help would be great. Do you think I`m peeing in the wind with a relatively minute amount of 40k, when it comes to this type of car? Cheers all.
