    I have the Ferrari bug bad. My 458 Spider needs a friend, the catch is I want the same exterior color as my 458 and it must be a manual. I have listed them in the title of my wanted post in the order of what I want most. Car must be Blue and have a stick, prefer a coupe but will consider another Spider as well. Thanks for looking.

    Hi John,

    I have a 2001 Ferrari 550 Maranello in TDF Blue as well as a 1998 Ferrari 355 Spider in Nart Blue. Both six-speeds. PM me for more details or email me at keith@lbilimited.com. Thank you.

    I wish I could edit the original post so here is the edit.
    Looking for any of the following, listed in my order of preference. I am only looking for cars with a gated shifter and the car must be either TDF Blue or NART Blue.

    1) F430 coupe
    2) F430 Spider
    3) F355 coupe
    4) 550 Maranello
    5) F355 Spider or Targa
    6) 360 coupe

    I am not interested in a 360 Spider at this time and appreciate the ones people brought to my attention. My first choice is a F430 coupe, and close behind that is the F430 Spider and F355 Coupe. The cars listed below those would really have to be very attractively priced as I just don’t like them nearly as much as the first three cars on my list. Thanks again for any and all leads, it is greatly appreciated.

    There is no such thing as an attractively priced 355. Been talking to a friend who owns an independent shop and he gave me the low down on 355 maintenance and issues. Either pay upfront for a nice one or pay tomorrow for repairs on a not so nice one. Thinking more and more that I really just want a 430 with a stick.

    There is a nice 355 in Blu Sebring on eBay. At least equally as pleasing a color of blue as TdF or NART...

    Thanks for the lead, but because I’m weird I really want either the exact same color as my 458 or NART. NART is because the ‘MARION’ was stored in my grandmother’s garage for a number of years and I believe the top half of the two tone paint was NART blue. So for me it would be kind of an homage to that car which holds a special place in my heart.

    If you ever do decide to sell it, please reach out to me, it is pretty much exactly what I am looking for. Just curious, how long have you had it Nd how many miles are on her.

    Certainly, if I’m ever looking to sell I’ll let you know. I’m the only owner, ordered it new and spec’d it out, has about 5800 miles.

    Why would you own a drivers car like a 430 with a stick for over 10 years and drive less than 600 miles a year in it? That sucker deserves to be driven...lol. Seriously beautiful car.

    Good question, without a great answer. I can only say it's one of several cars including a modified Porsche Turbo (also stick) which gets more regular use. The upside is that it feels like an occasion every time I drive it and I still love it after all these years. But you're right, I should drive it more!
