Maybe but I never thought of them as a real "Porsche" the only real Porsche is a 911 or at least that look ala Boxster or Cayman.

I know what you mean but at least they were more than a Volksie with a Porsche badge like the Cayenne.

Muira, it's either dog ugly or classic depending on how drunk you are.

No seat belt ? because he is such a fanatic he would prefer to die with his car if he totaled it. :D

That is why most knowledgeable Ferrari owners always take their cars to Lamborghini for service and repairs.
They are not only fixed, but often improved.

is that you Massimo? ;) ????

I have to agree... rather than take your Ferrari to ANY Ferrari dealer in Australia, you'll actually get a better job done at the melb lambo dealer, as long as Massimo does it.

But if you want it done REALLY properly, take it to one of several Ferrari specialists.. myself included !

And if you want a good deal on Lambo service... *cough* same again! There are many independant options out there, nearly all better than ANY dealer of any kind. As the staff are real enthusiasts, and not over worked cheap labour bonus motivated journeymen like at the dealer.

I recently had to choose between taking the Ferraris to the Factory Dealer or somewhere else.
The kids at the ABC child learning centre did a much better job.  :thumbsup:

Is there an exotic car specialist union I should be seeking kickbacks from?

Knowing nothing on the topic but always happy to express a view, I think that the franchised dealer is the only way to go for cars under warranty as they have the latest bulletins etc and can obviously honour the warranty, but the independents are better for older cars.  A old car in a franchised dealer's service bay always looks like a huge bill waiting to land.

Hi,
I can recommend Paul Placzek for older and newer Ferrari's & Lambos. He has done my cars for the last 10 years. Lambo Factory trained in the 1970s. He has the diagnostic tools for the new Lambos and Ferraris. Worth a chat
Best Regards

Did you buy those cars because your life lacked frustration?
