I'm in the position where I'm being tempted to thow common sense to the 4 winds and buy a 348. Only problem is I don't have a garage or any other cars.

Would a 348 survive happily being parked outside in all weathers, or would it dissolve into a puddle of sorry red paint in 30 minutes?

Thanks, as I suspected!

I've test driven an NSX and a 911.
Strangely I really didn't feel for the 911 at all, up until I drove it I figured it was _the_ car I wanted.

When I did go for a drive all I could think of was how similar it was to driving a beetle, which I hated!

Loved the NSX, amazing soundtrack. Drove a Maserati Ghibli cup - again great car, but being such a limited edition I went against it on the possibility of horrific costs.

As you say all these cars need their care and attention, but I can appreciate that a 10+ year old Ferrari is going to need more TLC than most.

Summers coming and I need a good sporting machine, pref convertible, pref with more than two seats. Looks like an M3 convertible then. Oh how sensible.

Thanks for the advice,
Rich
