    Today it was overcast, about 70 degrees, no rain. Perfect for top down 355 driving. Ran her up to around 150mph, went up the road to Haleakala. Total about 100mph. Lots of twisty, mountain roads. Lots of fun, car ran great.

    stunning, only thing is, being in Hawaii, i would think you couldnt resist a roadster? Isnt the weather there very consistent? (that is consistently gorgeous?) and your LP bracket is hilarious.

    Of course you have to go back to Ferrari! Everyone needs a grocery getter! As for getting rid of it, id do it in a heartbeat, but my wife wants a convertible, and i cant think of anything better to replace it with, thats remotely close in price. Id trade for a nice 996TT yesterday.

    A 996TT with a Techart body kit, and Evo stage 4 kit. For around a 100,000K, daily driveable, with Enzo performance. Want one just like this.

    Why do you hate on Ferraris so much?

    Why can't you just appreciate both cars for what they are? I mean if you can afford both these cars and a Lotus V8TT you must have a good level of education (unless you just won the lotto and that's how you made your money). So I don't understand your attitude towards Ferraris?

    By the way, did you order the Diablo with that "SV" on the side or did you just happen to buy the car like that?

    You'd rather have a Porsche instead of a Ferrari?! Granted a Techart Stage 4 is crazy fast, but the F355 Spyder is such a stunning looking car. If it's just about all out HP I'm sure I can find you a Civic for sale on the Internet that has 8 or 900 HP.

    Sorry, I meant Techart Stage 3.

    Only reason I'm correcting, becuase I'm sure your going to correct me on it. There is no Techart Stage 4.

    Im not really hating on the Ferrari here. INMO, the Porsche looks just as good as the Ferrari,if not better, with performance 10 fold. The Ferrari is fun, but slow, the steering stinks, and doesnt invoke emotion like the Lamborghini.

    The Lamborghini, came with those stripes.

    Is the 355 white? It would seem you have a fondness for white exotics... Just curious , I haven't seen a whilte 355 spyder.

    Also, that Techart TT looks awesome - I totally agree on the looks - better than a 355. But just my opinion..

    My 355 is yellow/black. I do like white cars though, and have seen a 355 Spider in white, it looks great inmo.

    The Porsche i have pictured above, does not have a Techart kit on it. Thats just a factory spoiler upgrade on a 996TT. I just use that picture because it is also very nice, and i love the wheels and color combo.

    Anyways, what will happen, is that i will keep the Diablo and 355, and add a 996TT.

    The techart body kits look a bit too much. I would get the Power upgrade from them and maybe a Sportech Kit.

    YES! I love your car!!!
    Couple questions for you. On the install of your stage 4 kit, did the motor have to come out? Hows the reliability been? Did you have to change the stock clutch immediately, or did it last awhile? And do you want to trade for a 355 Spider? lol
