That was interesting.

The 355 was to only have a belt inspection(!!) at 52k????   :eek:

You should change the cambelts as soon as your instinct tells you to.

If you have bad instincts, leave it 5 years, then do tensioner bearings and belts. Or work in conjunction with your valve clearance schedule and or oil leak repair requirements

On 355/360, the tensioner support units give problems too. But there are non invasive/complicated diagnosis techniques that experienced mechanics will know, to find this.

Basically, get an annual service..eerrrr annually, with a place that has extensive product knowlede of your particular model.

Main delaers tend to not be that good with older stuff (~5-7 years or more), due to typical staff turnover, but there are exceptions as it's down to specific staff on the job.

And specialists tend to not be that good with really new stuff still current and under warranty, unless they have gained experience somehow (ie racing  :cool:)

thats $40k id rather save, and spend on belt service etc when i buy a car, also i expect the 360 will likely depreciate more yet, and will in the end be a cheaper car than a F355, so would rather buy an F355 at its bottom rather than a 360 still on the slide.

i hope you know that the difference in the belt service is less than $1k between the two cars.

Where DO you get your info Pless?

Belts on a 360 are behind the seats through a panel. An annual service, with belts can be done in ~10 hours, plus parts.

A belt service on a 355 is around 24 hours, plus parts.

And parts costs are similar , if not identical.

I'm sure you're about to pipe up with "but you can take the fuel tank out of a 355 to do the belts...."

well, yes you can. But it ONLY saves a very small amount of time on the belts aspect. AND it introduces lots of risks of disturbing items not designed to be disturbed frequently.

and... You still have to service the rest of the car, if comparing belts SERVICE jobs....

FYI.

Belts ONLY on a 355, is around 22 hours. Dropping the subframe and replacing ALL fluids. But NOT servicing the car (it does get requested a bit, esp on sales cars)

Belts ONLY on a 360 can be done in around ~6-7 hours. No fluids touched.

It's not the only thing he does with himself.





















Then again if you want a job done well, you have to do it yourself.  :fap:
