just took delivery of white gt3 that i ordered year and half ago. biggest difference from old 348 spider is power steering. that and ease of entry/exit makes car so much easier to use every day. have to watch out for low spoiler same way. ride in normal setting is comparable with much less low speed understeer. cup tires probably figure in to that though. sound is suprisingly good but not quite ferrari. build quality is from another century but then again 348 was from another century. manual says 2000 mi under 5k rpm so will have to wait while till i can compare performance. i will post pix after i personalize it a bit next week. also have tale to tell about how underhanded even high end car dealers can be.
