According to certain motoring journalists the 348 is not very good in the handling stakes compared to a 355 or 550 but compared to normal cars, it's much better...

And as a poor man's Ferrari, the servicing costs are still painful.

Of cours the servicing is allways hell with Ferraris. Especially when you get Gearbox problems and the clutch also not holds to the high standards you await from it.
But I think this Ferrari is good for someone enjoying the machinery (mostly in the garage), and drives max 5000kms a year.(to the pub and back)
Then you should be OK with servicing costs . . .

I drove a 348 and a 355 today (missus got me a performance car day for my 30th birthday) and I have to say I prefered the 348 to the 355 ! Even though the 355 is my favourite looking ferarri, well apart from the F40.

348

I test drove a lhd 348ts a few years ago when I was looking for my next car, I ended up getting my GT-R instead though as it was a lot faster than the fezza, I have to say though that I absolutely love the 348 and seeing as they still go for in excess of 22k upwards I find it hard to believe that it's a 'poor mans Ferrari' ?! a Mondial or a crappy old 308gt4 yes but no way a 348.

As for the high service and runing costs, well, when I test drove one and asked re the costs at KHPC and Talacrest (whom have now changed name I believe) then I was quite surprised as the yearly service was circa £400 a service inc cambelt was around £700 to £800 and a clutch change fitted was under £1,000 add to this the insurance was (at the time) £600 and my GT-R cost £850 and the better fuel consumption on the 348 in some ways I was kinda gutted I didn't get one !

I know why I didn't get one every time the GT-R comes on full boost though ;)

I know one thing, if I was ever to sell my GT-R and look for something in the 348 price range I would certainly NEVER have a Porsche badge on the front of my car, it would have to be the unreliable italian every day in my book !!

Saying all of the above I don't know if I would leave the horrid coloured rear grill and the non std wheels on your neighbours car though, I would return the fezza to std as I think it'd look far better.
