    Just moved from the States with a US LHD 2001 Modena (yellow). I now need to find a dealer to service the car.Given that I'm in SW13, maranello Sales seems like the logical choice, but I wanted to know where you guys go.
    also< is yellow a "banned" color around here? I wathced the cool Brighton video, and every single car was red, except one black, not a single yellow. I suppose the argument is that red retains it's value longer, but I really don't care, as I will keep my car forever and never sell it. If I ever buy another F-car, it would be an addition to this one. It's kinda like guitars, whenever you buy a new (or vintage) one, you can never sell it.

    Thanks.
    What about Joe Macari? He's less than 2 miles from where I live. Is that an official Ferrari dealer / servicer?

    No, Joe Macari is an independent, and wouldn't be my first choice.

    I live a few miles from Joe Macari and its not an authorised dealer so i too would not advise that one.
    I used to get my car serviced at Maranello sales when in London and JCT when in Leeds. However i find JCT the most unproffesional place i have ever been to.
    I now get my car serviced at GrayPaul's brand new impressive centre in Nottingham. They will pick your car up and drop it back after service and the guys there are superb !
    Highly Reccomended

    I've been using Joe M for the last 18 months, hes given me very good service, lots of free advice, very experienced servicing staff in Russell (some 20 yrs at Maranellos I think). I definately recommend if your only 2 minutes away!

    The've always got some F40s and other impressive bits of kit around, so its worth poping in even just to enjoying drooling at cars.. :)
