    Hello from Germany,

    I just browsed the Owner's Site for spare parts and had to discover, that the oil filters were removed from my basket, because they are no longer in stock.
    Do we get severe supply problems regarding such important parts ?

    Best Regards

    Martin

    Baldwins are heavy duty applications, try a truck type dealership, no kidding!

    Peterbuilt, IVECO, brands like that use them, as well as Ferraris.

    I bought one over the counter (well actually over a rather plush desk!) from the main parts place in Thorpe only a week or so ago - standard UFI for a 308QV belonging to a friend of mine.

    Martin - We do have stock of these filters (#191993) there seems to be a technical glitch on our site. Give me a couple of hours and I will get it sorted.

    Hello Malcolm,

    excuse me for panic, but actually if you go to an official Ferrari workshop in Germany these days and want to have your oil changed, chances are big, that you hear ' no oilfilters available '. Happened to a friend of mine with his 328 at Kroymans in Stuttgart some weeks ago.
    I would be highly interested in the reasons for this. Has UFI stopped manufacturing ? Do you know any details ?

    Best Regards

    Martin

    Martin,

    Don't have any details, but UFI hasn't stopped manufacturing, I just think they make them in smaller batches compared to some of their other filters and sometimes their stocks run low

    Actually... Ferrari UK is onto something here! I heard this same rumor about UFI filters a few weeks ago, and I've been stocking up like crazy on 191993 and 124228.

    Maybe that's why UFI are running low on stocks ? ;) :)
