all I'm saying is that you're wrong to say they are within $1000 of each other for a belts service, becasue, they are not.

They are not "many" thousands apart either, and nor have I claimed that.

So, in all 3 instances, you are wrong.

all i've claimed is that it's within $1000....and I'm not wrong...and I've proven it.

DK engineering does more of those cars than you've had hot dinners. I'd rather take their word for it than yours. no offence.

I love my car. Buy your own

well, firstly, no you haven't... unless you're gunna ship your car to UK to service it.

Ask Zagame, or any other Aus dealer if you like.

you do know I worked at DK for 2 years, right?

I've told you my thoughts...

They're re-couping SD2 costs on 360, and/or charging what the market will pay..

It just doesn't make any sense as 360's need less items attended to, and access is generally easier.

I'm happy to disagree with you, and any that claim like you.

And, I'm happy that 360 owners get their cars service cheaper than 355 owners.

It's called progress. Ferrari did quite a good job with the 360, in making it easier to maintain.

430's are even cheaper again! (Labour wise, parts are a tad more)).

so using DK engineering's price as an example (not the cheapest, but indicative), and doing belt changes every 5 years as is the accepted 'norm' and assuming stuff all km like most of us do, the price of 5 years of service is...


360 $8,249.00 (1649 p.a.)
355 $ 7,474.00 (1495 p.a.)
308/328 $5,702.00 (1140 p.a.)
550/575 $10,274.00 (2055 p.a.)

So anyway, if any of you have ever been scared off a 355 purchase because it costs more than other Ferraris to maintain, forget it. They're ALL expensive!

define expensive!

I'd say a 355 typically costs about ~$1500 more than a 360 for a "belts service". IF you do it the subframe out way.

That's MORE than $1000 more, but less than many thousands... as per Pless's claim.

You COULD do it by taking the fuel tank out, but nobody I respect would consider doing it as a retail proposition.

355's also suffer more design faults.....

ie... CV boots often fail, inboard ones are too close to the exhaust, even with the heat shield.


355's also have more hoses and other perishables, that require occasional replacements.

i claimed what? wow...talk about making misleading comments (again)

anyway....what the hell would those UK guys know about servicing ferraris compared to the brilliant mechanic with his own web page??

:rolleyes:

it seems quite a number of reputable mechanics disagree with you....so...hmmmmmmmm...reputable mechanics v you.  :scratchchin:
