    Default Warranty inspection

    I bought my F430 around a year ago as an Approved car with a 2 year Ferrari New Power 15 warranty. Upon rereading my documents recently I noticed that it is actually a 12 months + 12 months warranty and the car must be inspected at the end of the first year to make the second year valid. I called a main dealer to ask how much this would be and they said they had never heard of this requirement. They looked into it for me and eventually conceded that I was in fact correct. They needed to speak to others there to get more info but when they called back they said that although this has never been an issue for them, the cost of this ‘bumper to bumper’ inspection would be £530! I thought I’d read somewhere recently about warranty inspections being £99...

    My car had its 190 point check at time of purchase, has had a courtesy inspection at a main dealer just before covid hit and has also had a major service earlier this year at a Ferrari independent specialist. It is due its next minor service Feb / March 2021.

    I’m inclined to pass on the inspection as it doesn’t seem to be strictly enforced. Thoughts??

    Not heard this before but it could be worth talking to FNE HQ at Slough for a more coherent answer

    This maybe so, but you know what companies are like if they have to pay out...any excuse not to is a good excuse!

    It does not affect cars newer than 7 years old because they are inspected at the free service.
    If you have it serviced at a Ferrari dealer that will suffice.
    Well that's always been my reading of it.

    According to the dealer I spoke with, this warranty inspection is separate to the service. I find it pretty incomprehensible though that, given that a service is largely an inspection, it is necessary to need both. I did wonder if they were confusing it with a PPI inspection...

    That's odd.
    I had my Cali T serviced in June and after I noticed the 2nd year was added, I assume my F12 will be the same in January.
