PPI at SF or Silicon Valley of Ferrari or indy shop?

    Does the dealer typically perform a more thorough PPI versus indy shops?

    Anyone have any experience at Ferrari of SF or Ferrari of Silicon Valley? If yes could I see your PPI report to get an idea what they will examine? Would these shops show me their PPI reports as well?

    There is a car in San Francisco I'm like to have a PPI performed on.

    I would 100% go to the dealer for a PPI if it’s available vs and Indy. No offense to the Indy, but the dealer is the ultimate source of good/bad/whatever, when sh*t hits the fan, so I’ll just go there if I need to do it. My 2c.

    I had a PPI done at Roselli in San Jose. Very thorough would recommend if it's not too far

    I had my PPI done for my 2005 F430 F1 at Taomina Imports: https://www.taorminaimports.com/. They are located in San Carlos...

    They were very thorough and found a "whirring" sound coming from the clutch area even though the computer said it had 70% life left. Turned out to be a worn out throw out bearing at only 22K miles. They also found many items from a loose tail light, to the rear hatch microswitch being faulty, to calling out all the "sticky button areas. They have a 65 item comprehensive checklist... Greg and Ted are really cool guys and they explain everything very well. This was my first Ferrari, so I had a lot of "newbie" questions and they answered them all.

    All the best!
