    I just moved to VEGAS and I am looking for a highly recommended Ferrari mechanic.

    Any suggestions? Thank you

    Hard to find them here

    Italy Service does work on many Ferraris here, rentals etc., talk to John the mechanic or Oscar the owner.

    Precision Automotive can do work on them also.

    Just hold on a while,
    Rumor has it when Wynn LasVegas is completed. It will have a Ferrari Dealership in the Casino.


    Good Luck to you.

    Currently Wynn's staff truck their F-cars to Scottsdale Ferrari for service. 575, 550 Barchetta, etc.

    Ironically my 328 was here in Vegas a few years ago by a Po before it went to Boston then Fresno Ca and he had it trucked to Steve Harris in Utah, they seem very reasonable from the reciepts I have and have a excellent rep here.

    Italy Service is very knowlegeable on Ferrari, Oscar the owner has a 328, they are expensive though, might try them in a pinch.

    Hard to believe that in a City with those demographics they do not have a reputable Ferrari guy.

    I have no idea what you've read into these posts that would suggest that Italy Service is anything but reputable. I have had three Ferraris serviced there to my total satisfaction (along with other cars of mine), and have found them to be totally competent and (perhaps more importantly) the most HONEST auto shop I have ever encountered anywhere.

    The only strike against them is that they are not an authorized dealer, so are not usable for warranty work. Hopefully, when the Wynn/Penske shop opens next April, that problem will be solved for owners of newer cars. But personally, I doubt I will be moving any of my business over to them.

    Yeah, I have to agree. Bought my 328 in Vegas, had some extensive work done on it by Italy Service before I drove it home to San Diego - was very happy with John and Oscar.

    Good luck.

    In the article it has the Ferrari / Maserati dealership in the new casino.

    Italy Service is first rate. John rebuilt my 308 after it burst into flames on the track back in April 2003. It's never run better, and I trust him like no other.

    There are 2 other shops in town (besides Wynn-Penske) that you can trust to do brakes and other maintenance. European House of Imports has a limo pickup and delivery service. Raymond's is capable of rebuilding engines and transmissions and may be somewhat less expensive.

    It's kind of a stretch to have someone from Miami talking about being reputable, especially a used car salesman!
