    My car is in for the major and they found significant corrosion on the wire ends. they (Ferrari Dealer) quoted me $1,900 for a new complete set of wires. Is this a customary price from a dealer.

    anyone know what Ricambi gets for these? They (service techs) will try first to clean/restore the wires and then see how successful they are.

    any feedback is greatly appreciated.

    Get a set from Kingsborne. They use the exact same Beru parts on each end of the wire, but instead of Beru wire, they use their own 7mm wire (maybe what they use IS Beru wire, but it does not have any markings?). They otherwise look, and work identically to the factory wires, only they cost $400, instead of the incredible amount Ferrari charges.

    I have had them on my car for several years, no problems, as do several others on this forum.

    thanks you guys are the best. I assume the dealer will install what I give them. Has anyone ever gotten grief for not using the "Ferrrari" parts?


    thanks

    I have never had a problem with Ferrari of Seattle, as long as the part is of equal or better quality, they have no issue. But remember, if the part fails, or causes an issue, you are on the hook for the part and labor to correct it, unless it was caused by an installation fault.

    I have a complete set of used OEM 355 plug wires in good shape. $150 if you want them.
