    13. Engine oil overfilled. – part of the service

    14. Both cooling fans noisy LH more so. these are prone to seizure so I would recommend they’re replaced. £459.64

    15. Pressure tested cooling system, Found coolant hose clip corroded and leaking as reported. replace clip and refill system/test again. Replaced clip, water pump itself is leaking awaiting to see if can price a used unit otherwise cost to split apart and rebuild is £620.57

    16. Emergency fuel flap T lever missing and release cable is loose and adrift. req’s new lever and re-securing. £11.40

    17. Low tone horn inop, There are 2 and only 1 is working. £295.22

    18. Oil leaking from A/C compressor, Not excessive and common on 360’s…… Report and monitor.

    23. There is evidence of oil loss from the steering rack from both outer bellows …However according to the last service invoice the rack has been replaced .

    It looks like a second hand rack or an overhauled item that has been fitted ? Investigate source of leak and report back to customer. £54.00 to diagnose

    24. All four brake discs approx half worn and in poor condition on back faces ( Rusty and scored ) Report these for now as theres life in the pads. Recommend new discs next pad change.

    So this looks like a quote (possibly as part of a PPI) to do some long overdue work on a recently purchased 360 - many of the items are standard requirements over time eg belts tyres alarm led ball joints

    Depending on where you are there may be better ways than involving a main dealer

    I think you need to not be new members with few posts to pm (now called 'Conversation' here)

    As above; sounds like a pile of long overdue maintenance that has been deferred by previous owners and its now yours to deal with!

    A lot depends on how handy you are with the spanners. Also how much you want some of the rattles etc sorted. There is nothing on there that people don’t do themselves.

    If money is a consideration I’d suggest getting all the mechanics sorted now. You can get the rattles and wind noise sorted later.

    If you want more specific insight to costs etc; try joining Club Scuderia forum. There are a few 360 owners who are very knowledgeable.

    Good luck and enjoy.
