with 355 coupes in the market for $55,00 and 360's still at 125 to 150, is there that great a driving pleasure to buy a 360, especially ifeach car is to be driven a lot?

I was wanting to ask the same questions. I like the look of both, but there is that price difference. And then, also, what is the difference in maintience costs? I love to drive the hell outta my cars, but i'm not sure what the costs of owning one is...

As with the evolution of any Ferrari model, later cars are generally improvements over the previous version. A review of magazine road test articles will bear this out. Whether that difference is worth the expense of going for the newer car is entirely up to the purchaser. Some of us "dinosaurs" actually prefer the older cars, even though more modern ones can perform much better. It's all a matter of personal preference. The decision should be made by test driving the cars under consideration, taking notes of likes and dislikes. That is part of the fun in buying a Ferrari, and to rely on others opinions, or magazine reviews will always leave you with the question of whether you did the right thing.

Go out and arrange a couple test drives in each example, and your answers will become more clear. As for maintenance, these cars use timing belts which require routine replacement known as "major services". The 360 has a removable bulkhead to access these belts with the engine in car. It would be wise to get major service pricing from the nearest dealer for each model, as this will vary.

I think there are a few 360s in the $100k range! but they have miles and are mostly 1999 - 2000 models.

The 355 is a beautiful car and provides value for price, but it is not in the same class as the 360 in terms of handling and performance. The 360 is a much lighter and stiffer car. The 360 is generally considered to be less expensive to work on or own. The 355 has a number of long term issues which can be resolved with fanatical service, but it will be costly.
