    Hi, everyone. Longtime member of forum, new owner.

    Details:
    2001 Model
    10,800 miles
    F1 with 92% clutch life
    Black w/ grey Daytona seats (electric)
    Shields
    Clear bra entire front end, rockers, behind rear wheels
    Challenge rear grill
    Tubi exhaust
    GfG (Giovanna) 3-piece modular black wheels
    McIntosh custom sound system (receiver, amps, iPod connection)
    No leather pulls or bubbles, some stickies resolved, some left
    Receiving new belt and annual service @ SFMotorsports in San Rafael, CA right now

    I'm a bit overwhelmed right now about meeting a life goal. And, believe it or not, some self-reflection and inspection going on too. I'm very excited, but unfortunately the car is in the shop for maybe a week+ to get the belt service completed. So, I have my new car...but can't drive or see it until them. Argh!

    Anyhow, wanted to say hi to everyone. Here's some pics:

    Thanks, 02360spider.

    I also want to give a shout out to Matt @ SFMotorcars.com. He facilitated the sale, and actually found out about my search through FChat. He took the time to go over the car, and made the process very easy. I also appreciated his service department (Daniel?) in getting me squared away on expectations and technical stuff. Nice work, guys.

    Congratulations.

    I love black 360s. I wish mine was black.

    Anyway, I noticed that your rear wheel offset could be a little on the dangerous side. Your car must have understeer with this offset. Be extra careful in turns you might loose your rear end sooner than you expect.

    I just saw that your new car also comes with stock wheels. I would get those mounted. They also have much better Michelin tires on it. Your car will drive much more like a Ferrari with the lighter wheels and handle more predictably. The GfG wheels are most likely 355 spec/size and offsets. They also weigh at least 40% more.

    WOW! I didn't know McIntosh made car audio amplifiers, that's a pretty sweet setup, I wonder how it sounds with the top down.

    In anywise, congrats on the 360!

    Thanks. I can just make out that one of them is 235/35 ZR19. Not sure about the others.

    I'm not experienced on wheel offset. Can you explain how you noticed this? How can I have someone check? Thanks!

    You can tell from the pic that you took from behind...the rear wheel is way inside the wheel well. If you remove the rear wheels, you'll find the listed offset on the inside of the wheels.

    Eggman thanks for the shout out. It was more than a pleasure working with you on the purchase of such a special car and marque. Welcome to the 360 family! She will run even better than yesterday after the service is complete. We can always take a look at the wheels, and while both sets of wheels are at the shop, feel free to play around with mounting either wheel or looking into spacers.

    Hope we can have you on an SFMC drive when the family time allows for it.
