    so a shonky mechanic misses some obvious issues with a 355...and i do mean obvious issues. 355 blows up. engine pulled down. equally clear is that the previously mentioned obvious issues were the cause of the blow up.

    owner of car b***hes and moans about shonky mechanic, with good cause.

    buys another engine and has it put in by second mechanic and immediately realises himself that there was obviously stuff wrong with the old engine (he'd had no experience with 355s before, so had nothing to compare to) and drives off into the sunset.

    now i know there are some money issues and a bit of a (possible) lack of morality on behalf of the owner, but why....WHY would he go back to the first mechanic with his car?

    i might almost understand being too embarrassed to go back to the mechanic who fixed the car after screwing them over, but why would anyone go back to the original shonk?? surely that's just ASKING for trouble.

    that first one must be one hell of a smooth talker to talk someone around after that, that's for sure!

    i always say mechanics are the curse of ferrari ownership, but sometimes the owners are their own worst enemies.

    like i said...i just don't get why,

    Sounds like they're soul mates.

    Feel sorry for the second mechanic and his future customers who'll both ultimately pay the price for your pair of shonks.

    Going purely on your post.

    You've really only got two options here. You could ask the owner. Or you could ask everyone else in the world.

    The rant went on but I either deleted it accidently or the servers did... :confused:

    You know the ones. They use the right lane to turn left :p or turn from the middle of the road. Like a truck needing two lanes to take a corner.

    i spent all day driving the 328 today. it's odd how i sort of think it's all gutless and stuff, because it's so easy to drive and docile, but it's actually got a fair bit of get up and go.......more than enough to get into all sorts of trouble.

    i love that car too.

    well under the influence of a pommy and booze there seems to be an all out assault on PP for exposing certain fraudsters

    PP should take a leaf out of my book, stay away from AE..........full of rice a riso burners and imposters
