    It's always a point for discussion isn't it - Main Dealer vs Independent. I think there are good main dealers and not so good, and good indies and some not so good. There's also now a plethora of 'Ferrari Specialists' who also 'specialise' in almost every other high performance car you can think of......... ie they are Ferrari specialist in name (and paperwork) only.

    FWIW some of the best most meticulously maintained cars I've seen were maintained at neither Main Dealer nor Indie, they were maintained at home.

    I'd choose AV or similar quality independent over a main dealer for a 360 any day of the week

    The servicing is less than that Mark but they'll often be a bit of extra work so as a figure for annual expense I'd say this is similar to my experience. Some years more, some years less.

    I know, 650 from QV for a basic service, but I rounded it up to 1000 but there's usually other stuff.

    So a spider, 2001ish, manual 35k, what's the going rate? Same for a coupe?

    I do like the bucket seats.
    I have no personal connection to this car, nor have I even seen it in the flesh, but it's a friend's neighbour who is selling it. From the advert and what my friend has told me about it, it sounds like it would be worth a look if you're after a Spider.
