    Hello all,

    I looked at a 1986 328 a few days ago on Merritt Island...seems like a pretty nice car - but it would be my first F-car and I don't really trust myself to pick a good one from a bad one. Can anyone recommend a shop or person to do a PPI? Many thanks! Battman

    Battman,

    I used to live in that area and I don't know of anyone qualified to do that there. Your best bet is the Ferrari dealership in Orlando.

    It's about an hour + east of Orlando...sadly, there do not seem to be many F-car service type shops :(

    FOCF would be close.

    One hour is acceptable in Ferrari terms when you live in an off-metropolitain area.

    Where's Merritt Island in comparison to Tampa? I'm in the Tampa area for vacation but don't know where this area is. All I know is that Tampa is 1.5 hrs east of Orlando so I might be close.

    Tampa is west of Orlando, Merritt is east of Orlando Must be about 1 h so that take you close to Kennedy Space Center area. Probably north of there.

    Hey, we are'nt that far apart. I'm in Port Saint Lucie.

    Sadly, theres nothing that I know of between Ft. Lauderdale & Orlando.

    The tow alone to the Shelton shop exceeded $500. Never again. I now do everything myself. Far cheaper to buy a lift than to go the other route. Of course, if you are'nt mechanically inclined, or make so much more than the service costs, than there is'nt any other option...

    Tripple A Plus s the answer. They tow up to 100 Miles free 4 times a year. Priceless if you own a Ferrari. Just to have it you know.

    Besides ytou could have brought the car to Servizio in Jupiter, just a short drive from you and would have received good service there as well/. :)

    Give Paul a ring, he is here as Paulie on the Board. He knows David from Servicio well and may open the door for you. I hear that David does not take any more clients since he recently downsized his shop. There is also Rosso Corsa in Jupiter that you could use.
