    I work close to this place. I live near Ferrari of LI and have used them. Can anyone tell me if they have used Classic Coach, and how they rate? I have heard good things. Also, as compares to F o LI if possible.
    Thanks

    I have not used them but know folks who use them (355, 288, 328, 308) and love the service, their prices are comparable to dealers but the work is dealer level and better. The owner also owns one of the Florida Ferrari delearship, so there are not a true independant. ask for Rocco

    i could be wrong but up until recently I think they were the only factory authorized body shop in the US, I think recently WWOC's was also given this honor.

    Sam,

    I have had my car serviced by Classic Coach since I purchased it in January, 2002. Although known primarily as a factory-authorized coachwork repair facility, they have an excellent service department. They are skilled and knowledgeable in regard to all Ferrari models. Their technicians are first-rate, and one in particular, Carlos, is exceptional. He does the tune-ups and engine rebuilds. Their houly rate is comparable to Ferrari dealerships. I have my GTB there now for a major service.

    It's best to visit their facility. You'll get the royal tour and see just what they are capable of doing. You'll be pleased with what you see.

    Ask for Rocco or Jim.

    Regards,
    Barry

    Frank, the owner, always drops what he is doing when he sees me to personally show me around, give me an espresso, and even an Italian style hug. I have used them and currently have my car stored with them for the winter. Very honorable and top notch.

    I have my 512BBi there now. They are repainting the Boxer trim, doing an oil service (trying Mobil1) and checking idle and A/C for the summer. They are very caring and give personnal service. My car has been there for about 2 weeks and I wish I had it to enjoy these nice days. Rocco told me should be getting it pretty soon, cant wait.

    They service my 360 spider, and provide track support and maintenance for my Challenge car. Great people, excellent work, very customer-focused. Highly recommended.

    My car is being serviced now. I stopped down last saturday to see what the engine looked like out of the car. Carlos took me through everything he was working on and even showed me pics of the work so far that they put onto disc for your records. Attention to detail is very high. Frank and the rest of his staff are very freindly. Mayur is the man to talk to. If you need something he will get it and if their are any questions he can answer them.
