    Ok, You've forked over the cash for this car (maybe that means nothing to you, maybe it means everything), but you didn't just buy any car you bought a Ferrari. Now, you've come down off the high of buying such a car and your driving it around, what don't you like about it?

    355 Spider, my top sucks. It takes half an hour and a sweaty workout to get it down, or up. I'm 5'11, 180 so the seat squishes me into the dashboard. Sometimes I stand outside the car and push the switch with a broomhandle.LOL

    The constant hassle of making sure I'm not going too fast, and scanning for anyone whose job it is to make sure I'm not. :)

    #1 How about constantly watching your rear-end while stopped at the traffic light and thinking to yourself "Is this person insured?" "is this woman using her cell-phone" will they stop in time?

    #2 Speeding up alongside the SUV's so they can actually see your car in the mirror before they change lanes !

    #3 Ever notice that the car with the damaged front grill and primered hood always seems to be behind you at traffic lights, else tailgating your butt at 70MPH.

    Kinda stressful sometimes.. huh..

    The fact that I have to stare at it everyday in the garage and not drive it. Dont want to put too many miles on it. It just taunts me from the garage like a nymphomanic, bisexual, money, grubbin, spendaholic supermodel. Gotta love it.

    Yes Alan please explain ... ?, I'm confused, you bought a Ferrari NOT to drive? You could have bought a 1:18 scale model a lot cheaper ...

    We have discussed on many threads that driving them actually makes them more reliable and hence cheaper to maintain. This is because you should (have to) replace the timing belts (and other things) based on time or miles ... thus you might as well put the miles on. Also as we have discussed before oil seals and many other rubber parts get a memory (or go hard) if they do not move enough, thus you really are doing you car a dis-service.

    355 and 360 F1....the F1 transmission really sucks around town...We had hoped the 360F1 would be better, but it wasn't.

    328 GTB....a bit too slow and parts are very hard to find in Thailand.

    However, the look the sound and the experience of driving the F-car usually compensate for the above flaws. I own a few rice mobiles like GTR and NSX, but I must confess that the F-car still gets my blood going even if its performance can't match that of my ricers....

    I had a 328 and I didn't the steering wheel position and the shift pattern. I have a 550 now and the only thing I don't like about it is that I'm sitting at my computer instead of in the car.(It's snowing).
