I'm considering a manual Ferrari 360 spider.

Can anyone recommend a trusted Ferrari specialist workshop who can do a proper pre-purchase inspection in Sydney.

Thanks.

Is this common or has the dash been tampered with.

Not common, it's probably because someone had the dash out to install a km/hr speedo, I think that the car must be an import, if not then prob yes someone has tampered with the speedo!

Do you know what you are looking for? That is a pic of a complied import 360 dash. The dash has been changed to meet Australian compliance requirements.

Worried about milage? Get hold of the service book and ring up where its been serviced and what they have on record for that car.   Also get a PPI done and get them to see how many km's the gearbox has done (recorded). An error of about <15% is normal.

I'm willing to wait for the right one to come along. A 2003+ model, the newer the better. Must be completely stock, including not being repaint (I can live with the stone chips) or damaged repairs. Must also include the factory user manual.

Options include challenge garnish, challenge carbon seats, no lowering, no after market wheels without supplying stock wheels. If Tubi / or other exhaust are mounted, I also would like the stock ones to be included.

Service books needs to verify that the belts, seals, pulleys and water pump has been change. Depending on the mileage clutch and brake pads / rotors.

Full service history including in the PPI a leak and compression test of each cylinders.

Subframe must be original, I've seen some which has been factory repaired which looks crap.
I've allowed for an extra $10k for the unexpected.

I couldn''t help myself so here goes.

1. Repaint?? They have all had a touch up here and there including Aussie delivered 360's. How about you make sure the chassis is straight and any major accidents that have not been repaired properly.

2.If you are looking at an import then the log books can say anything you want them to say but you have to go back and do alot of searching. AN aussie delivered one is easier to track down history but these can also be hard. Better still just do a cam belt change regardless and you know it has been done.

3.If the subframe has been repaired properly then there is no issue here.

4. Finally if you have an extra 10K then hopefully that will be enough for whatever you may want to fix.

Final advice as I have been down this road and seen many 360's is to plan how much you want to spend and try and secure the car with that budget. After this what it costs to run is a different story.

When you get one you will quickly learn the ins and out of ownership.

Now it looks like you want the perfect Ferrari with no previous paint work etc etc.

Go buy a F430.

The end.
