Consider it "insurance" on a 348.......those are sometimes troublesome to fix......

Well, it has nothing to do wit

Well, it has nothing to do with insurance, it's about overhead. It's a no brainer that with more overhead comes higher prices. I'm not knocking their quote as much as I am not liking the idea of paying twice the price for a PPI than I did the last two PPI's the last time I bought an eight cylinder Ferrari. It's the same procedure with either car and it is not rocket science. Steve Harris did a PPI for me for under $400 including the compression test. The write up they did and the detailed report that they delivered was worth every penny. Maybe that's the difference between Utah and California...
LOL!!!!

Either way I am getting another Ferrari. Life could be worse, right?

Silicon Valley Auto Group did an awesome inspection of my 355. It took them almost 8 hours, but they really tore into it.

Thanks guys.

Thanks guys.

Paul, I have done some research on Tillack & Co. and although they are a reputable shop they are way too far from the owner to do the PPI.

Tony, The $700 PPI quote was from SVAG. I thank you for the info on their service ability. I already scheduled the PPI with them as I couldn't fine an alternative and I have been told by others that the SVAG guys are top notch. I will shut up now and quit being cheap as JR would tell me.

Sounds great. You could spend a lot of time doing wine tasting in Paso Robles! If you do, you should spend the night there
I suspect you are taking HW 101 South if you are going Paso Robles.

HW 1 is a joy to drive, spectacular scenery and little traffic south of Carmel. I have only driven a few hours south to see The Hearst Castle. The windy roads along the coast are fun to drive.

Tony,

It looks like a go


Tony,

It looks like a go on the car. Just a few minor things to finish up next week. We would love to meet up with you for coffee, lunch, or dinner. Not sure when we will be coming through there at the moment. We are finalizing our travel schedule this week and I will give you a more realistic window. At this point it is looking like Wednesday the 31st.

I did get your PM and when I replied I received an email notification from your spam filter to send a blank email to verify my email address. I did that but I guess I need to resend that email.

Looking forward to meeting you. I went by and spoke to JRV yesterday and he said to bring you another set of skid plates for your 355. I will put them in my bag.


See you soon!

JL
