    you know, as i move up in the way of cars i can buy. i find myself less and less attracted to the newer Ferrari cars. solely based on what actual owners have posted and details that shop owners have discussed. there are other choices besides Ferrari, and i for one wont be buying anything new from them if this is how they treat customers.

    trade it in on a nice Diablo. :)

    Out of curiosity, how long does it take to do a job like this?

    Well, just to close out this thread, I got my car back yesterday, friday. They did all pulleys, with one update and all tensioners, bearings and belts, plus the cam variator. She runs like she always does. The mechanic even said she pulls real hard, its a great little car. had a good luck at the sub-frame and she is as tight as can be, welds look perfect!
