    I just picked up my new Titanium/Charcoal 360F1 last night from FoS! I feel like a kid in a candy shop, especially since I just walked in their dealership last Friday night to look at inventory...

    I've been searching for a 360 from brokers because I couldn't fit in a 355, and 360 production is sold out. I had a line on a car in Southern CA but wanted to take one last look at what FoS had just for the heck of it, not expecting that anything would come of it. But, they were my local dealer and I would always want that relationship.

    I went into FoS last Friday and examined a really cool used 2003 360 (one of our board member's). When I told them I really wanted a new 360 and that I had a line on one but wanted to check with them first, I was told that, guess what, was I in luck. The very first 2004 360 coupe was arriving the *very next day* and that the person who was on the "list", defaulted on picking it up.

    Punch line: I picked up the car last night.

    Here I go from being told that there was no way I could get one, except from a broker, to getting the first 2004 360 coupe in the state, all within 1 week. I feel like I just won the lottery. :)

    The folks at FoS were great. Very professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. Great experience. Wow, I get to update my profile!

    Congratulations on a fantastic Christmas gift to yourself!!! What a stroke of luck getting a brand new one.

    Hope to see you at a club event in the Seattle area very soon.


    PS: Tell FoS that you would like a one year free membership to the Ferrari Club. They are supposed to be doing that, since we give them free advertising in club's newsletter.

    Great isn't it? I got my first 550 the exact same way. I walked in with a friend who had purchased 3 cars from the same salesman and saw it upstairs (not even PDI'd yet). He told me if I really wanted it he would see if the guy it was meant for (on the fence for a while) would bow out. He got on the phone and barked, " YES or NO...RIGHT NOW?" He then said, "OK", hung up the phone, looked at me and said , "It's yours." I swear I nearly died!

    Tim - Beautiful ! ! ! ! !

    I'm in FL but purchased my car from F or SFO also. Great experience and great staff.

    In case you are not aware of it, they are the only dealer in the country that is owned by the factory and thay may have played a role in having the first.

    Now get off the computer and go and enjoy the experience.

    Extremely classy color combination (except maybe for the modular wheels which are little bit too much to my taste), hope you have silver brake calipers too.
    Congratulations !!!
