    I have, I had super major done in that had engine case bearings upgraded timing chain cover bearings updated, compression/leak down, valve check, plus the typical full major stuff along with timing chain tensioner updates not just typical cam tensioners . This is on a 348 btw. They have some very rare and expensive Ferraris in they work on. They send you emails and videos of stuff along the way too.

    Ah- far from us. Were up in the Northwest corner every weekend, a few miles from Lime Rock.

    Let us know how the visit goes!

    Pretty area. I did a few turns around that track in my youth. I'll let you know my impressions of BHG and thanks again.

    Thanks again for all the input. I went to see the operation yesterday and was very impressed. Great group of guys who appear to love cars as much as thier clients. I'm going to have them work on my 348 next week and hopefully all goes well as I expect it will. Thanks again.

    I bought the car knowing it had a clutch issue and paid accordingly. It will sometimes feel that it wont completely disengage and although it's not constant it is annoying and I'm not comfortable letting the wife drive it as is. I'm also having them swap out all the fluids and give the car the once over just to make me feel okay and identify any other issues now or in the future.

    I need a fairly local place as well. Please let us know how it goes. Im due for basic annual fluids and such as well and was considering shipping it up to Aston Martin New England (Steve Oldford and his crew there do an amazing job and have done alot of work on my 400i), but I would prefer to avoid the expense of shipping it up to Boston area for basic stuff.

    I will. I looked into them as well as an operation out of Nashua NH but I too didn't want to ship or transport the car that far.

    BTW, if you've never been to BHG as I hadn't, and are in the area, it's worth a visit. They gave me a tour of the facility and saw all the cars they have stored or consigned and its wildly impressive. Millions of dollars worth of beautiful automobiles.
