    Default BSM's 2000 360 Modena F1

    Unfortunately it's taken me a little longer to post this than originally anticipated with home life being fairly busy and me having to head back to work a little later than anticipated.

    I'm please to say that despite a slight delay in getting home last month due to weather when travelling, the collection of our new to us 360 went without a hitch and we are now exceptionally please officially be Ferrari owners This has been a life long ambition and a dream realised 3 years earlier than my self imposed deadline of my 40th birthday

    I'm also happy to report that the car is everything we hoped it would be and the journey home was one that neither me, my daughter or my Dad will forget I'm sure. My daughter had no idea what the road trip I dragged her out of bed early on the Saturday morning was about and my Dad kindly come along for the journey and to drive the A6 back up the road for us.

    As promised, a few photo's to kick off which will hopefully be a regularly updated thread documenting the ownership of our first Ferrari

    We have also joined The Drivers Union since collecting the old girl so we may well cross paths with some members from here whom also partake in events organised through the Union.

    Lastly, I would like to say thank you for the warm welcome to the forum and we look forward to being members for many years to come.

    I am sure there will be many questions and shouts out for advice and experience from the more knowledgeable collective on here and I also look forward to being able to return the favour to others as my knowledge of the marque grows with time.

    All the very best to you all,

    Ben

    Congrats, Ben, fantastic looking motor. I just think the 360 looks 'right', such a well balanced design.

    Thanks Pete,

    Good to hear from you. I hope you're keeping well?

    I agree, they are an absolute pleasure on the eyes... It doesn't sound too bad to my ears either

    I went to collect Mrs M from work on the evening of collection day and it got approval from her in the audible department too... Seemingly she could hear me coming from some distance (roughly 2 miles) away when I opened it up on a section of dual carriageway en-route to her place of work

    Mrs M also had her first drive a couple of days later. When out on a lovely B road on the way over to my parents place, she drove it like she'd stolen it and was grinning like a giddy child by the time we arrived at their place. Needless to say, it got the seal of approval in the driving department too

    The car is SORN for the winter now. Have a few tinkering jobs ear marked for the winter months though so quite looking forward to them keeping me occupied over the coming months...

    Thanks all

    My memory isn't the best Mark so feel free to prompt me for a photo of it flanked by the Ducati's when the weather improves again in Spring/Summer next year

    Spec wise, as far as I know to date... The car has the following:
    - Rosso Corsa
    - Carbon Race Seats in Sabia in think (happy to be corrected if anyone knows any better or different)
    - Tan? carpets, Sabia lower & Nero upper dashboard.
    - Front & Rear Challenge Grilles.
    - Scuderia Wing Shields.
    - Hills Engineering Track Rod Ends (front axle).
    - Stradale TCU.
    - Tubi Silencer.
    - PPF to the front bumper, bonnet, headlights and rear of all Wheel Arches.

    Service stamp in the book for every year of its lifetime to date but I am still trying to get some missing invoices from previous servicing dealers as some of these seem to have been misplaced / lost between previous keepers.

    Ben.

    Great looking 360 that!
    Regarding the factory spec if you get the My Ferrari App you can load up the cars you own with the Chassis Number and then you get a spec sheet inc colours & options as built by the factory.
    Cheers, Giles

    Thanks for the tip Giles, just waiting on confirmation of my account after submitting proof of ownership.

    I've had a good read through your scrapbook thread and look forward to seeing your updates trickle in as time goes on.

    Our's will be regularly used all being well but I very much doubt we'll ever be anywhere near your level. I'd be very happy man if we could do half the mileage annually that you seem to manage
    Credit to you for properly using the 360, I take my hat off to you for doing so
