    Any recommendations to have a 30,000 mile service done on 348 Spider in the North ??? and that reasonable in cost.

    I have been told about the following.

    Strassa, Nick Cartwright, Shiltech. Any others...

    I have been told to stay away from main dealers, crap workmanship and to expensive.....

    Nick Cartwright would be my recommendation in your area.....Great Guy !

    Or John Pogson at Italia Autosport - A little further North but cheaper than Nick !

    There is a new ferrari specialist that i may be useing ( if i dont use verdi)in Manchester, they are called JM autos. They have broken away from i think DK enginering. The guys do seem realy cool on the phone to me and they even collect and deliver in an enclosed truck, for eg for them to collect from Derby and bring back....£60, and there prices are first class. If you want the guys name and number mail me. They sent me a imformation pack, very impresive.I did use Shiltec for a year and spent allot of money with them (£8000) but they do lack custumer relations and that personal touch that we ferrari owners like.

    Is it JM auto's or JMH ? I used JMH to change the belts on my Mondial, the seems OK, and the price was right. The Guy who runs the place, Jason preps 360 racers, see attached piccy. Jmn are in Holmes Chapel. I will dig out phone number if you want it.

    Jason AND bernard in fact, and they do the servicing for Sant Agata classics (where i bought my 355 from), now Santa has moved to Manchester town centure.

    I use Jason at JMH.

    Very friendly and helpful - I have asked many questions and received good advice.

    He did my 348 TS 18K +belts+camshaft seals and I have no hesitation recommending him.

    Good Luck

    Hi Justin,

    An awful lot of people seem to recommend Strasse in Leeds. SteveF says they're good, Simon uses them for his 355 and now his Murcielago, MOD for his 993TT, just to name a few. Oh, also Manu rates them very highly.
