    I would look in the manaul. I might be mistaken but I don't think belts are normally included in the 15k, 15k on the belts is really a short time. Other things that are done besides plugs are, coolant, brake fluid, tranny fluid, oil, filters, various inspections, they make check valve clearances

    355 has hydraulic valve adjustment....thank God! Imagine how much it would cost to service otherwise!

    Here is a list of what is expected to be done on a 15k service - by the way cam belts are not replaced at 15k.

    Replace :-

    Engine oil and filter
    Air filters
    Gearbox oil - manual (replace every 2 years)


    Inspect :-

    Cam belts (visual)
    Cooling system
    Air injection system
    F1 gearbox oil level (check every year)
    Brake and clutch fluid (replace every year)
    Power steering oil (replace every two years)
    A/C system (regas and replace filter every two years)
    Visual inspection of brakes, steering, suspension and battery connections.
    Beamset headlights.

    OK Thanks for that.

    What do they call the $7000 service for a 355(the big one)? I thought it was a 15K mile check. What else is done in addition to the above for the big pull the engine check. I don't have a manual or car yet. Just doing some homework before I buy.

    I have already read the cam belts every 3-5 years.

    Thanks

    When WWoC did the 15k on my 355, it was an engine out service and they changed all the belts, different seals, fluids and the like (don't have bill in front of me).

    Unfortunately, some old seal material from the valve covers dropped into the manifold/valves and the car has never been the same... they tell me it will cost thousands to repair their mistake :(

    Lesson learned: Make sure and take your car to people who will warranty their work and correct mistakes they made!
