WOO!!! nice cars!!!!!

congrats bro, i intend on being reborn into a family similar to yours.

boxster is ace car very nice daily driver, I hope you don't get harassed too much for being young, esp since you are an auto-nerd rather than a 'my daddy bought me a car with no roof'-nerd

WTG!!!!

btw there is dirt on the 355 wheel arches... i hope someone cleans that off soon!

Hey, that Ferrari is sweet. How do the seats feel in it? I might be buying one, and right now I have a Lexus SC430 and the seats are very comfterble. I sat in an SL55 and the seats felt like plywood or a rock. I thought they felt horrible, waaaay to hard. Is the Ferrari anything like those? Are they really hard or soft like a Lexus?

Thanks

Re: Newbie here...some pics of my cars...

beautiful F355. any chance you could tell us what it is your dad does for a living. I'm at a crossroad and he obviously made some good choices, maybe I could learn a thing or two

most people spend their whole life dreaming of living like you do everyday bro, enjoy it.

you mean you shift at the redline or you usually rev it up to the redline, but sounds really good

Re: Newbie here...some pics of my cars...

Damn dude, and I thought my family was rich! You lucky bastard. Some girl at my school has a bright red 355, but she drive an old Pontiac Grand Am. Then she goes and makes fun of our cars.
PS- She never gets to drive it and they'll only drive her to school in it once a year.

Some guy at my school drives a blue 355 every once in a while. His "daily" driver is a black denali riding on 24's. Personally, having nice cars is one thing, but making fun of other people's stuff when you can't even use yours, as in the case of Cobra01TT, is another. the latter i ABHOR.

Re: Newbie here...some pics of my cars...

UPDATE:

Hey everybody, sorry if i Havent replied to any messages or questions, I have been busy with alot of stuff over the year. Glad to be back. We no longer have the F355, sold it in November 2003. MY porsche Boxster was traded in for a Subaru Sti and a Honda S2000. Boxster was not a reliable car, had like tranny problems 3 times and I just gave up. Im very happy with the Sti and S2k...both are VERY differnt but NICE cars. Ill post some pics when I get some time to wash them.

Thanks for all the replies

Re: Newbie here...some pics of my cars...

Ya, well nobody has been here for a long time, but I wanted to see if you are still here anyway. I am thinking of a 355 as they are at a real cheap point in their life cycle, but lets face it. 355 are not real fast for today's standards. 0-60 in 5.5. a Lexus ls f does that in 4.7. The only selling point is the sound and the Ferrari brand. Maintenance is incredibly high.

So, is the Ferrari experience worth it, or should I ignore the curiosity that plagues me when it comes to the fiery temptress?

Wow 355 is a very nice handler and easily the best Ferrari from the 90s.
But I am having trouble opening the pics. How do I view them?
