    Hi

    I have a 360 and I'm now in Tucson several times a month on business. Wondering if there were any other owners in the area.

    Thanks

    I've got an F430, live in Oro Valley just northwest of Tucson. Not too many other Ferrari's in town.

    Thanks Steve.

    Its a 99 Euro car Red with blk/red 6 speed manual with exhaust and challenge grill done. I have a set of CS wheels to put on it and will probably drive it quite a bit as it has some miles on it already (about 42k or so).

    I had the PPI done by the dealer in Oregon and it checked out perfect. 165-170 compression across all 8 cylinders and leakdown max was 4% and no more than 1% variance on any of the cylinders. All records were available at RTGT and at most if not all owners (3) are F-chat folks.

    As for other Ferraris in town there are more than you would think! I've come to the conclusion that Tucson is an under-the-radar Ferrari community.

    I've now seen a couple of 430's, older superamerica, 275 gtb/4, daytona coupe (last three are the same owner) recently had the opportunity to see a 288 GTO in person that had only 7K miles on it. Also know of someone that owns 5-7 of them in varied styles 348, 355, 360, TR but never drives them. (sad to say). Also a doc at TMC drives a 355B almost daily thats parked close to the ER and I'm sure there are a few more. While we pale in comparrison to L.A., Phoenix and other cities I think we hold our own in the toy dept.

    We should see how many Tucsonian f-cars we can get together. Maybe we could all meet for dinner at La Encantada?

    Hello,

    Is there somewhere to get Ferrari service here? Thinking about getting a 348.

    Thanks!

    Hey guys and gals...

    Stop by Tucson's local European and Exotic vehicle website/ forums...

    www.AZEuropeans.com

    Tucson events are posted on the calendar... as well as the Phoenix events, such as the Scottsdale Cars and Coffee event.

    I believe I have met Fritz before at one of our Friday events. He'll be the first to tell you I am not a Ferrari owner, but a BMW owner. I know I know, by no means, no prancing horse. But I'll take my M3 over a Corolla!!

    Stop by the website!

    I am a new Ferrari owner. Have a 2020 Portofino. Interested in joining any group drives. Also trying to mod the exhaust in my car and having difficulty getting someone local. Any suggestions appreciated.

    Carthusiast, thanks for bumping this thread. I’m in Tucson also. I bought an F430 about a year ago and I’ve been looking for a competent (Ferrari familiar) shop here too. I have no problem wrenching on my car for most things, but I’m sure eventually something will pop up that either I can’t handle or don’t have the tools for (computer stuff). I’d definitely be interested to hear if there are any recommendations in Tucson.
