    Hi I am new to this Forum and I am looking for a reputable Ferrari Certified Mechanic in South Florida. I live near Weston Florida. They say word of mouth is the best form of advertising and I believe that to be true. So, I would appreciate any feedback and direction my fellow Ferrari enthusiasts could give me.

    Thank you,

    Joe...

    I too, coincidentally signed online to ask the same question. I live in Plantation and need a trustworthy mechanic for my 328 GTS 1987. Thank you for the above referrals and will call them. I had the most amazing mechanic in Scottsdale, Arizona.

    Has anyone suggested Tim yet? :)

    Even as a non-customer (I just live too far away) Tim has many times offered invaluable advice and opinions at various shows and track days we have met up at.

    Tim Stanford has maintained my 328 for about 15 years. Multiple threads on here about him and his shop.
    He was honored at Cavallino for his service to the marque...!

    Tim Stanford. His own 328 just scored Platinum at the Cavallino Classic tonight. As did my 308 and another 328 that his shopped helped prepare for the event. ++++1 for Tim.

    Agreed- Tim Stanford and Eddy Fiuza are the best. Helped me prepare for my first Cavallino and made the experience a blast! So fortunate to have them in South Florida!

    I was in town in December to buy an SD1. I wanted to test it on a car so I stopped by Tim's shop. I spent about an hour with him and was very impressed. You can tell that he is an honest no BS guy in the first 10 minutes.

    Tim is definitely the man- not only good at what he does, but a pleasure to deal with too.
    A real gentleman.

    I talked with Tim a few years ago about regular annual service. He has a great reputation but he's exceptionally booked up. That's great for him. The vibe I got was that he prefers to work on older cars.

    I take my 430 to Adrian at Precision Tune in Margate. Nice guy. He owns a CS and knows his cars.
