    Some of the guys around Manchester must have computers etc to run the recent race cars so should also be doing road 458 eg JMH

    I'm told they have to link up to ferraris comotutor in Italy to be sorted... But that's all I've heard.. Anyone with my facts... Not sure where to send mine but last one I paid for.. Not expensive but not indy price either..

    depends what for...

    Some items need codes from the factory to be fully serviced [e.g. wear indictors on non EU mandated systems such as CCM disc wear]

    For general servicing EU law dictates that nothing should be inaccessible to a qualified automotive business with professional level diagnostics equipment.

    The price point for this kind of bi-directional kit for Ferrari which includes such things as TPMS coding, F1 / Dual clutch gearbox calibration is circa £600-£700 full factory gear is 10X that price.

    Many Indies have the previous generation diagnostic kit which they buy for and cover the cars that have fallen out of the main dealership chain (>6-10 years old)

    Thanks.. I was told by JCT that my next service would be higher as the car gets a "re-set".. Whatever that actually means.

    Not exactly sure what that means but it sounds dubious...

    Standard process is to hook the car up to the diagnostics computer, look at the various ECU's throughout the car, scan for errors and update software / firmware if any factory updates have been done. There is no real 'work' to it as it all happens vis the computer while the techs do the routine servicing such as chaining oil, filters, visual inspections etc.

    I have just got off the phone to Ferrari and this matter came up so when you ring your dealership ask about the 'Specialista' servicing rate this is 'yet another' campaign to keep the cars serviced within the Ferrari family. What it means is that cars that have fallen out of the various service packages can enjoy a discounted labour rate along with parts prices which will beat anything you see on eBay etc. It is designed particularly to keep the naturally aspirated V8's and older V12's inside the franchise dealer network. If they give you the shrugged shoulders call Lee in service at Stratstone Manchester who will detail the scheme to you.

    Carrs and where I take my cars, Dick Lovett offer discounted hourly rates for older cars. Makes them pretty competitive against the indies.

    If you are thinking of using JCT, you might want to reach out to Andy (achaddy), he will have a few things to say about them I suspect!

    “Re-set” sounds like code for “plug it into the computer, press enter, charge the owner what we think we can get away with”

    Having once been quoted over £5k to change the cam belts on my old 348 i would not dream of taking the 550 to JCT in leeds for a service.. northern supercars who repaired my 550 took nearly two weeks to sort the problem and it cost me £3900... main dealers hourly rate would make my eyes water 🤣🤣🤣
    But our 458 was last serviced on a fixed price basis, which is good as there’s no nasty surprises..would prefer to keep using the dealer network for its provenance ..but it has to be a fair price,..as a Yorkshireman i hate wasting money 🤣🤣😀😀 or spending it..

    Wow, I just paid a fixed price of £1.8k plus vat for the cambelt service at my main dealer for my 348. Guess it all depends on the main dealer!
