I Agree

Mossimo Mondino at the Auto Legend is very good and experienced with the marque. He is a Paul Russell alum and has worked on both my BBi and 250 PF GT with good results. I have not brought a modern car to him, but I have seen several 360's at his shop.

Forza,
David

4k for a 30k service plus it takes 3 weeks to finish the job.

I trust the people over at Ferrari Tampa Bay 100%. 'Not to say others cannot do a good job but there are a lot of horror stories.

Mossimo is still in business. His shop is always full so sometimes a service might take a little longer but i highly doubt anyone is doing the job Better and i would be shocked if FOTB could do any job cheaper.

Enjoyed this post as we hopefully will be moving back to the Tampa Bay area as soon as our house sells here in Co. Have met some of the fokes at Tampa Ferrari, but not any of the independants as yet.

Thumbs down Stay away from Kevin at The Auto Legend

Massimo ran back to Italy... left my car to Kevin Gonzalez (KEVIN_G) without my permission... Kevin destroyed my heads on my 355 F1 trying to do a 30K service... Kevin and his dad Dennis Gonzalez (apparently bought The Auto Legend from Massimo) agreed to have my car repair at Ferrari of Tampa and pay for Kevin's mistake... when car was finished, Kevin and Dennis Gonzalez of The Auto Legend told Ferrari they have no business with them, and told Ferrari to tell me that I will have to sue them... they cost me over $13,000 in repairs... and as of today they still will not pay for their negligent work to my car.

Better Business Bureau has my complaint and agrees with me that Kevin and Dennis are not settling this issue.... BAD BUSINESS from The Auto Legend!

Wow sorry to hear that. I was looking for an independant around Tampa-- thank you for the heads up. Again sorry to hear about your misfortune. Stories like that make me inclined to stick with FoTB.
