Also, another thing i noticed (or didnt notice) were the 'extra' Ferrari stickers
Yup, they were all around and IMHO lacking in taste. They didnt look like they were having a good time either!

Whats the story with the 355? Has it changed ownership yet again?

I spotted a 355 Spider under covers when I was in Bombay in the summer. Got up close to it as the guard let me and my friend past the gates. He told us it belonged to a businessman, but no names were disclosed. Also, I don't know if it's an F1 or not, but I'm certain it won't be any other colour than rosso corsa. I'll get the location once I ask my friend the whereabouts, cuz I'm bad with area names in Bombay.

Some more pics of the 355 taken by a friend. Was being serviced / polished. The front right wheel was out. Also if u notice in the pic the right side light was up while the left was down. Does one light need to be up to open the boot?

Yes, that's a W220 S-Class in the background. This is the same building where I came up close to this 355 in September 2005.

I got some bad news about this car.
Apparently the new owner has managed to buy it but cant really maintain it well. I saw it pass my house this afternoon and the blissful sound of the tubis is GONE! The car sounded like a regular automech free flow kind of tone!
Long gone are the days when i could hear the car roaring miles away even when my room windows were closed and i ran to the window just to hear it scream by. Was really disappointed to see it pass by and barely with an awful exhaust note even though he was revving it hard.

Ah, what a shame :(

Hey Dippy Man!! You're just lucky! Getting that in India is a very rare case. Just PM all the members next time you're offered with the same. We'll join too.

Thanks Dippy. Did not know where to put them up appropriately. And of course I'm new here, I have a LOT of snaps from the past 4 years but they're all, well, old! So don't know which thread to put them up.
