    I just wanted to tell you guys about a little gem in Costa Mesa, called Ferrari Service. The place is run by two guys named Mike and they do a fantastic job. I took my car in for some fluid changes and got the car back running stronger than ever. They did a fantastic job with no B.S. involved, I highly recommend them, as Slag 328 would attest as well.

    Their work and prices are better than the rest. They can find any part and I would go there again many times over.

    Just my 2 cents.

    You Orange County guys make me sick! I can, and have, spend an entire day just driving around Costa Mesa and checking out one Artisan after the other. If you are into things that fly, drive, and ride, Costa Mesa is ground zero. I have never seen such a concentration of true craftsmen.

    I've serviced (2) different Ferraris with Michael and had him do a couple of inspections. He's very knowledgable and a good guy to work with. A good resource.

    Any experience with older V-12's at this shop? I recently had some work done in Hollywood at another shop and the work was, in a word, SLOPPY.

    Mike is great for parts. I got my challenge grill from him. It was practically new and I paid half of what the dealer was going to charge. He's great. Anything you need give him a call, he will find it.

    Guys,

    I was at their shop yesterday to check on my 328 major service job. All I can say is that these guys have a "Passion" for working on Ferrari's. They go way beyond what's required and take the time to do things right.

    These guys polish and paint things not normally required just because it's a reflection of their work. I've gotten nothing but honest service from them!

    They take pictures of the engine removal and provide a floppy disk for your service records. What more can you ask...

    I dont make that 124 mile round-trip for nothing !!

    Patrick

    : Zanny, yes I've seen several V12's in work there. 365,512 & TR's
    take a look...

    They are great guys and don't try to jack you around. The dealers can learn a lesson about Customer Service from these guys.

    I agree with what the others said. Good guys, open friendly and knowledgable. I bought a part from them at a fair price, and will be buying more in the future. Two thumbs up, for sure.
