    OMFG!! That is just stunning.

    You are one lucky barsteward. All of a sudden my car feels like a shopping trolley bathed in tat.

    Enjoy it mate, not many people get to experience something as special as that!

    Is it wrong that the exposed engine in the rear window is almost enough to give me a semi??!

    Thanks guys; I can't begin to tell you how big the smile on my face is when I drive it. I thought my S3 with over 300bhp was quick but this car is just insane. I tried to give it a bit off the lights earlier in 'sport' and the way the back wiggled was as frightening as it was exhilarating!

    Crazy thing is, I think it will probably depreciate less than the S3..

    Wow, that is stunning! the 360 is lovely. I drove the F430 around a track for my 21st B-Day and loved it! Was easier to drive than my A3 :) The car simply drives you - you don't drive it lol

    A friend of mine has a 355 with a Capristo exhaust. It's incredibly loud, even at idle, but when he opens the taps it literally makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up and sends a tingle down your spine. Love it :anbet:

    Truly magnificent car btw. Nice choice and well done for having the balls to get one.

    Well done!!!

    As you say if you have the balls to run one you might do it without too much fuss due to lack of depreciation....


    How many miles a yr do you plan to do?

    Very nice indeed!!!

    thanks man. I've kept the S3 which I'll run mainly in town. Obviously in the first month or two i've got some trips planned and will probably put a couple of thousand miles on her, but I'm guessing she'll be mostly under wraps during winter. I suppose about 4-5k miles a year is likely.

    That was my justification really...the S3 has depreciated almost £5k a year over 2 years. Everyone I've spoken to about the 360 (and i really have done my DD on it) reckons £3k/year in the pot is enough to look after it properly. Obviously, if the cambelt snaps or the gearbox breaks then it will be painful but so long as it's well maintained...you should be ok!

    Especially the redline :yes:

    Great car choice, and I honestly hope that is the case for you. I saw a thread a while back on Pistonheads about cost of 360 ownership, and £3K a year might cover servicing, but if anything goes wrong, the bills are quite epic.

    What age / mileage is the car out of interest?

    And good colour combo, less c*nty than the usual red.

    Thanks man. It's a 2002 car with 16k on the clock. Had all its services. The 360 is considered to be quite reliable but I don't want to tempt fate! The idea is that if you put 3k a year aside for maintenance you won't necessarily spend it all each year. But keep it aside year after year and then if you have a big repair to do at some point you have a pot to cover it.

    im lucky enough to have driven both a 360 and a Murcielago att full pelt on a track and can say that the 360 was much more fun.
    Engine revs so high and fast, round the corners it felt like a big go kart. Every time you flicked the right paddle you'd get a big kick in the back, loved it.

    Out of curiosity, can you not take out an extended Ferrari warranty for future peace of mind ??
