    I am in Lansing and looking for a F-car mechanic closer to me than Cauley Ferrari, which is 80 miles away. I'm looking to trace down the cause of a leak from my F430 F1 actuator.

    What reputable F-car shops exist in Grand Rapids, Ann Arbor or in between? :)

    None in Ann Arbor. I think that there is one in GR.

    Many of the threads relating to my question are years old. I wanted to compile a 2017 list of the independent service options around Mid-Michigan.

    Below is the list I have compiled so far. There is very little mention of these shops on F-chat.
    If you have any knowledge or experience with any of these shops, please post!
    Many thanks!

    Prestige is pretty honest in my book, took the ferrari there to try and get the mileage reading on my 355 f1 and they told me they couldn't do it, didn't try to take my money very honest in my book. Also said around 5-6k for a 30,000 service.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    I talked with Prestige earlier this week and scheduled a service with them. They have two guys that work on Ferraris and at reasonable rates. They had a F430 in the shop as I was speaking with them. For parts, they will use whatever they can to keep costs down; Ricambi, Eurospares, etc...

    I'll report back after I work with them.

    Pretty crazy. The Prestige Imports building has now been bought by Tesla and converted to a Tesla Service Center. :eek:
