As requested a new thread with details of my GTR replacement after the freak hail storm we experienced in the midlands.

This is a big one for me as many years back sat with a group of friends I set myself a target to get into a ferrari by the time I was 25, If you have followed my previous threads you will know how good I am feeling now! I ve managed it early and boy am I chuffed, with business going well being completely finished uni the last few months I have been 100% focused on my career.

The car, a 2002 Ferrari 360 spider manual finished in Rosso Corsa with Nero Carbon bucket seats and red carpets. A 2 owner car with the all important belt service being completed early this year. The car is in unbelievable condition for the age with the only marks on the whole car being very slight wear on the driver bolster and a 20p sized piece of laquer peal on the front bumper. I am totally smitten by the car and cant stop driving it.. some say I might be mad but I am going to be using the car as my daily driver, I don't do many miles and also have the use of the stock cars in the business I work alongside. As with my last couple of car I am going to advertise it over the next few weeks at a keen price and enjoy it until someone comes along with an interest. I feel with the seats and history it is a very special example.

Previous thread:

Jobs to carry out:

Have bolster scuff dyed

Full Protection detail

Laquer peel rectified

New rear tyres

Clean and reproof hood

Sell private plate currently on it to cover any running costs whilst I own it

I will keep it while but as with my last cars if theres a good profit offered to me I would sell it and move on... I feel with the time of year I will be holding onto it until next year as we are approaching the end of the summer convertible season!

Congrats mate on the new purchase. Been following your previous threads, hats off to you for working so hard and getting one of these at such a young age. Motivates me to work harder seeing this thread.

You said if you get a good price on it you will sell it, any idea on what you will replace this with?

Excellent buy and I think I've spotted a tubi exhaust system too? Definitely a market there for mint, well-kept 360s smile

Congrats mate! Looks awesome.

It's amazing to see just how many people struggle to come to terms just how simple what you are doing is. It's just that you obviously have a gift for it.

I have tried to 'buy to sell' with classic and failed. I put it down to trading with something i am so emotionally involved with. I now with some success do it with caravans. No chance of emotional involvement there!

Lovely car, threads like this make me miss mine so much it almost hurts!

I reckon you could keep it till early next year and not lose a penny; I made a fair few £ on mine.

Has someone re-done the brake calipers and put the decals on the wrong way?

is that due to the fact he has traded cars for a profit and therefore should be paying income tax on all 'profits' over the relevant threshold. I wonder if he will get the same treatment as the guys who pay cash in hand.

Still a nice cars but I don't buy the 'stories'
