Awesome stuff. Glad you got rid of the Flying Spur. Anyone I know who owns that car, isn't too proud of it. A person I know replaced his Spur for an S600 W221. Very smart move, I reckon.

Fabulous driveway...do you live in GK1 by any chance?

oh, heres the pic when i broke the arm after i hit the divider.
it was a real shame because i had a really hot date that night, and thats why i had gotten her all clean and tip top. I spent four hours on the road trying to organise a tow truck that could get low enough to pick her up without damaging the rest of the underbody and bumpers. caused a traffic jam 2km long and was surrounded my 4 cop cars, 2 ambulances, and a fire truck. quite an experience. Anyway, she's back and running as good as new now.
Oh, and do inform us of your next London trip...wouldn't mind a small meet

Gotta hate those dividers that cant make up their mind when crossing the road!

Well thankfully it looks like there was no damage to the body.....
How is the 355 owning & driving experience? Its one of my timeless favourites.

The H2, is not one of my favourites however, but looks absolutely HUGE in the pic!

Thanks a lot for sharing these pics with us. (any pics of the M3 with schnitzer rims?)
Waiting to hear about the "suprises" comming up.

sorry if you find the list too Hollywood, but its the way it is. A lot of Delhi people know who i am and my passion for cars. If you think i don't know that a Lexus is a LX 470... i have no words for you. Because anyone with any interest in cars would know this since they've both been on indian roads largely since 2001. But i'll also let you know the lx 470 is still a lancruiser. And the previous model was known as the lexus landcruiser only (i think). Also i'll add that 90% of LX 470's in India are not Real. they are modified Toyota Lancruisers. I know, i had one. Personally, there is not much difference appart from the fact that one is petrol and the other diesel. My Lndcruiser has moe options than the LX... haha

The 355 is the most awesome car. You cannot imagine the driving experience. Especially with the F1 gearbox. I haven't installed the tubies, but yet she sounds like a dream. She attracts the most amount of attention you can imagine. My uncle has a 360 drop-top... wait, i better say spider or this guy'll doubt me again. The 360 doesn't command as much attention as the 355. I personally think the 355 is the last ferrari with the tradional lines of a FERRARI! The shape is timeless.
But i will have to say she can be a pain. She spends at least a couple of months in a year at Verdi Ferrari (service centre in London). Something is always going wrong with her. So obviously she is costly to keep. But then again, i have an f1 edition. 355 F1's were the first car ferrari intoduced the F1 gearbox on. So they have a few problems. Who cares, she's worth it and I love her. London ppl, check out the plate on 355... my bro's initials...

Ok now youre talking!

So from what you have said i assume that most of the issues you have with the 355 are with the tranny? Or do you have the usual host of overheating issues and the likes?
