They are apples and oranges of cars. I suggest you go to the dealer and drive both back to back and see which one you like better.

Don't think you will find ANY 355's on ANY dealer's lot.....unless looking at older Ferraris.

I'm sure it is, but the quad turbo setup leaks a lot of oil, the car requires walnut blasting every 20k miles, and the spark plugs go twice as fast as the 335. The issues with wastegate rattles on the 335s pale in comparison to the wastegate explosions on the 355. It was a lot to squeeze out of an I6.
