Still camera phone pics, but at least the car is not on a hoist.

what make is that front spoiler?

That thing would keep the front on the ground... even if it had twin turbo!

No idea! It came with the car. I love the way it looks. It makes the car more agressive.

Great looking car  - apart from the front spoiler.

Now I'm really stuck on looking at the bloody front spoiler and can't appreciate the rest of the car :?

Have to see the wheels IRL to figger out if they're really better than the stockies.  On 348s I love the inset wheels but hate the outset ones.

IRL the spoiler really looks good. As do the 360 wheels. The wheels make the car look 10 years newer IRL.

Strange thing, this car gets an infinite amount of attention more than my old 355 did. EVERYONE turns after it and oggles it and twice I found people taking photos of themselves with it. I find it very strange as it's only a 348. The 355 hardly turned a head.

I think because the wheels make it look more modern and the strakes scream Ferrari, it gets people's attention.

Yesterday, took her to the trimmers. She's getting a brand new interior - black Nappa leather with red stiching and black carpets with red borders and red logos. She'll be ready next Fri.

BTW Ash, how come the pics are only clear when they are clicked on?

Hmm, something to do with reducing the size of the photo by only one pixel I'd guess.  It says under the photo that the reduced size is 600px - but for logistical reasons I actually changed it to 599px last year but forgot to update the language file to reflect this.

If the pics were substantially larger than 600px the reduced size would look alright, also if the pic was anything *under* 600px it would just show the original version - not to mention that red is the most difficult colour for an image processor to recreate accurately when resizing, often a lot of artifacts are introduced into Ferrari photos even when reduced at a high quality.

Well - in this light how cool does my idea from Fchat seem? :p

People have put the 355 side intakes on 348s before - I heard they are largely interchangeable? Has anyone put the cheese graters from a 348 onto a 355?

More later, I'm beat.

It's now later and a pic is useless without a story. Come on Ash, spill the beans, have you just invested in a depreciating asset?
If so, great news and congrats.  :thumbsup:
