I have a 328 GTS. I'm looking to move up to a 355 or a 360.
I would like to hear the pro's and con's for each. Is one model more costly to maintain than the other?
What should I be concern with when buying, besides records?
What would be a good price for '99 or 2000 360 Modena?
Thanks for the help.

My wife just had a new 2004 F1 Modena delivered for Christmas. I had been looking at them and previously owned a 348. I never owned a 355 but with each new model these cars seem to just get better. There's nothing wrong with a 355 but you will always be wishing it was a 360 Modena. I skipped the 355 series but did not consider I missed anything having a brand new 360 in the garage now. I only wish the weather was nicer so I could actually take it for it's first drive.

355 has known mechanical issues in relatively few miles and/or lots of upkeep. Engine must be removed for most basic services.

360 will not require engine removal for many services and is not as needy on continuous service. 360 also has a lighter yet stiffer frame. The 360 is in another class.

The 355 will be much cheaper to buy and I find the 355 to be quite attractive. I think the 355 is the sort of car you take out every once in a while, more of a garage queen or museum piece, unless you can work on the car yourself or are quite wealthy.

For the record, which is just my opinion, the 328 can be had for less and are quite reliable for a Ferrari. No, the 328 is not crazy fast, but it is still fast (top speed 160 or so) and you'll be able to drive it more often without constant bank withdrawals.
