    Back when we were a Fcar dealer, I had talked with some of the FNA parts guys about this site. They said they would look, but never post. Do not know if that is still true.

    We obviously have the UK tech and parts guys lurking!

    The only thing I ever heard is the some dealers do watch this board. (NA) For anyone that's been here for awhile this can be sometimes a very bad thing. Sometimes its not best idea to bite the hand that feeds us. As a good thing, call it a PR learning experience.

    Yes, Ferrari in Italy and FNA are all over FerrariChat.com. Just not posting or at least not letting you know who they are.

    I met the head of tech for FNA last year and all I had to do was say my name and he smirked. He gave a cold answer like "yes, I know about FerrariChat.com". Nice guy, they did business before FC and they can do business after FC. By tuning into FC they might be able to obtain some valuable information, like if you would rather have a trophy wife or enzo or better yet, what's your favorite car wax. :)

    Plus, I bet they can get more Lamborghini info here than at the Lambo chat sites! :)

    I don't know if you're kidding or not, but someone very important from Algar is an fchat member.

    No, i wasn't kidding... After a certain car left the dealership, i took upon myself to crack a few jokes... No harm intended, just a few wisecracks...

    In my defense, i carry the VIN around in my pocket, hoping to one day find the car and have it returned to Algar... ZFFTG46AXS0103494

    NNO.

    Not to pour water on your wise cracking flame, but, the guys at Algar are about as good as it gets, and Bob Segal is a real quality guy.

    Yes, he did get his F50 swiped, which was a very bad day for him. I happened to be on the phone with him the morning after while he was talking to his insurance guy about it. But, he seems to have recovered his sense of humor, and probably would not revoke your F-Chat privlidges, if he administered this site, despite your cracking-wise about the theft.

    So take a deep breath, don't worry about the Algar faction, and continue to tune your wise a$$ attitude. Carry on.

    Dave, i'm glad that Bob has a sense of humor and that you think he wouldn't be too offended... You're not pouring water on my flame, either, it was all done with harmless, humorous intent... i've never met anyone at Algar nor do i have anything against them...

    i read on a fortune cookie once: There's a humorous side to every situation; the challenge is to find it.

    That's all, nothing more... Tell Bob i wish him the best...

    Hey Ferrari VIP's did you pay the guy that designed these 6 bland looking cars a lot of money? Ferrari's 2004 line-up has turned me into a Lambo fan :(
    Did you think it was a good idea to drop the exotic car niche? GT's more fun for you? The 360's nice but 1 true sports car out of 6, what happened?

    Yo.

    I'm sure the guys at Algar who visit do the occasional "Algar Search" and will pass your glad tidings along to the boss.

    And yep, I can tell by your multitudinous postings that you're all in fun. no harm, no foul.

    Yeah I they do read this stuff. The only thing they are interested in is finding people that infringe on FNA's strangle hold of the U.S. market. They don't give a rats azz about the owners opinions. I'm probably one of the guys on thier "do not allow in the factory" list, Hahahaaaa. My #1 complaint is your IDIOTIC PRICES, enough already. Quit being a bunch of greedy little bastards. What is worse is that you over charge for parts you don't even make. Honestly, enough is enough.
