    Couldn't agree more

    I also agree with your assessment about the 'hired hand's' work not necessarily matching the main man who earned a reputation in the first place.

    Agree too. And with many dealers there are many layers of separation from who you talk to and who does the work which can add to the lack of care....
    As has been said it is a bit of a lottery, so very much about refining the odds rather than trying to get to a dead cert!

    True. Truth is the only 'dead cert' is to do it yourself. Then you kill the value because everyone wants a car which has been worked on by an apprentice at a main dealer who is learning on the job and trying to get it done in a certain time rather than an enthusiast with years of experience taking great care and as long as it needs to do the job well.

    I perhaps overstate the case but it is a bit nuts - a FFSH is worth far more than it's worth........ if that makes sense

    I know I'm a bit late in joining the thread but my personal experience of Ed, despite not having ever spent a penny with them - in fact, he has been a customer when running his own servicing business in Cyprus, where I think he looked after virtually every F-car there, his own operation in Stevenage when he came back, CL and his previous employer - is that he's a top bloke.

    He has a real passion for Ferraris, and knows their foibles inside out. 360 is right at the core of his knowledge, he had a friend 360 there last autumn for lots of mechanical rebuild work. Utterly genuine, knowledgeable, does it right, helpful and a friend.

    Other specialists are available.
