    Well it's no Enzo, 250 GTO or McLaren F1 but i guess it's still pretty cool to go in a 355

    I looked into OBDII but it seems the European cars don't have the port in the wiring loom, which is a shame. I wasn't able to find it at least anyway.

    Thanks for everyone's enthusiastic comments. I thought long and hard before undoing the first screw, but once over the initial shock of taking it apart it's just like working on any other car (except it costs unnecessarily more if you break something). One thing that made me laugh - in the name of even weight distribution, you have to take the front wheel off to get to the battery!

    Are you sure about the OBDII? The ferrari engine managment should have an ODBII port as it is made by someone like Magnetti-Morrelli or summit. I doubt the manufacturers would bother to develop a whole new system for Ferrari - then again it might be based on the F1 stuff - but somehoe i doubt it.

    As for the battery - what an arse! the 250GTO has the battery behind the front right wheel - not sure how you get at it though. I guess you couldn't really jsut stick a full size PC in the front or cut into the dash - you would end up with a horses head in your bed one morning for messing up their car!

    There are two diagnostic systems in Ferraris. The first is ODBII, the second is SD1 (For F355) and SD2 for later models. Ferrari are very secretive about SD1 and 2, and the devices to access them are circa $30,000. Main dealers and some specialists all have them. SD1 and SD2 provide very extensive diagnosis - much more than OBDII. You can control most of the vehicle functions from a laptop, as well as pulling off all of the extended fault codes and displaying real-time information.

    ODBII is on all F355's - I have no doubt about that; they all have the same systems and software. However, there are many differences between US and EU Ferraris from a mechanical and even cosmetic perspective. I know where the ODBII connector is on a US F355 but looking in that position on a UK car reveals there to be nothing present.

    My conclusion is that although all of the systems support it, they haven't bothered to put the OBDII connector in the wiring loom for non-US vehicles because globally all vehicles have SD1 or SD2, which is what the dealers use anyway.
