Thanks everyone for the helpful responses.
The car has been tracked which I don't necessarily mind I just think the service books have too many holes, I regularly track my cars and I service them way better and maintain them more due to this. Im worried that the entry price to this car is too low, and its been on the market too long and in fairness I havent seen enough F355's to know why its so cheap. Is it the colour, is it the condition or is it the high kms.
This car will be due for major service, and the seller seemed abit cagey like how the car can only be viewed at the dealership and the very limited test drive (10 mins is not enough to get the car hot enough to highlight any problems)
Right now the other option is this car: http://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/ferrari-f355-1999-11312313?base=1216&vertical=Car&cr=3&eapi=2&__N=1246%201247%201252%201282%204294966380%204294966369%201216&silo=Stock&Range=Price:Min,Max~0.5&sort=default
Which is locally based and in the right colour (albeit a spider) low Kms and only a two owner car.
Or get the 360 spider with 12500 kms 2004 Red with black carpet and beige interior and kressieg exhaust, again a two owner car that I have driven and was perfect, asking 165
Both are aussie delivered, im not interested in an import. And both cars are obviously abit more expensive to get into but is that extra worth it for lower kms, red, and the jump to a 360.
Most people I have spoken with including owners of both cars say hands down 360, as uber has already stated. Which is really burning me!
Anyway guys Im just doing my due diligence and dont want to regret the decision by buying a dud, or not the right car.
And yes I have driven both I liked the 360 better, but feel the look and sound on the F355 is killer enough to go for it over the 360, only real hurdle I face is the fact everyone says F355 is going to bleed me much more in maintenance and everyone is giving different figures on this. To me a 4-5k major every 3 years is ok along with annual fluid changes, but its the added fragility of the F355 (im told) that is leaving me tentative.
