That's a good guess.

Have been in the parts business a very long time and now branching into the Ferrari parts supply business.

Have had Ferrari's before and can speak from experience about maintenance costs.

If you want to well maintain a car it costs $'s. There's no shortcut.

This is the problem. A 360 is a street car and the exhaust note should reflect that aspect.

Designing a muffler to create the sound of an F1 car is ridiculous to me.

There is a horrendous resonance in the too bee that is very fatiguing especially after driving the car for 2+ hours. Drive it locally and it's not so bad, but when that muffler has been well heated over distance it's very disturbing.

Well I already mentioned what I do not like!

My360/430 design reflects what I have previously done, and that's to bring out the natural sound of the car w/o it being offensive or loud. In addition, there is absolutely no restrictions w/in the unit.

It's free flow all the way.

There will be more forthcoming on this and for sure it will not be absurdly expensive as are the current offerings.

Thank you.

I did search a very long time for that one.

It came from Saudi Arabia of all places.

is this normal?
Nicks and scartches are normal. It's not a large car.

As to the interior, it's perfect. I regularly coat the leather with Meguiars Gold Class Interior cleaner/conditioner.

Also, to maintain the seat bolsters make sure you place your rear on the seat first and then swing your legs in. The bolsters take a beating when your body weight is againast the bolster entering/exiting.

I am taking off all the interior gray metal pieces and then having them powdercoated the same gray.

Window buttons and heater control buttons suffer the loss of their coatings. It's like a clear coat. So you just have to work that material off, and that's it.

996TTDave,

one more thing.

2nd gear is a prob until the car warms up.

Be easy with it until it's warm.

Sometimes I go from 1st to 3rd and then back to 2nd when it's cold. Baby it and double clutch often.
