    Been in nashville since April, own a 99 355 and drive to ny and back a few times so the front bumper has taken a beating. Also, I've never had the 30k mi/5yr service. Do I need to bring it down to atlanta to get all this done and if so who would you recommend take my baby apart?

    There is an shop in Hermitage that i think most locals use. Its by the Kroger
    on OHB. I dont own an Fcar so I'm not an expert but, you should get more replys.

    FoA does a good job...If you are looking to stay in TN , there is a guy out of Knoxville who services Ferrari's. I forget his name as it was 3 years ago, but Martin at Cavallino Motors in South Florida would have his information. Good luck

    Your 30K service is an "engine out"... I'd suggest you take it (or ship it) to Ferrari of Atlanta for that. However, nothing wrong with using the local guys for everything else.

    just took my car to algar ferrari for a clutch and 30k service. found out all my updates where not done (obd2 sensor factory recall) also one of my cats was shot allthough i had no check engine light also under warrenty. you'll pay a little more at the dealer but got couple grand worth of freebees your local mechanic might pick these things up but charge you for them. hope this helps

    great advice. Had Roberto Branchizio do an oil change and fix the heater (good guy/good work) though I was a bit worried about the "engine out" service and a front bumper paint job. Was thinking about the dealer in Atlanta so thanks...chris

    FoA does great work...they did the cam belt service on my BB512i a few years back and I have been well pleased. If you use FoA, have then send your bumper to Bo Pirkle to repaint...he is the best Ferrari painter out there IMHO...and he is who FoA uses for its cars...and so does the owner of FoA, Ed Weidick...

    Yes, as Frank said, you'll be VERY satisfied with any paint/repair Pirkle does.

    I second the thumbs up on Bo Pirkle: simply the best around. You'll never think it when you see his shop, but he does incredible work.
