PPI in Ohio
F430 that interests me in small town in Ohio which I'm being told is 1 hour from Pittsburgh, PA. any recommendations of someone or some shop for PPI? Private seller who does not seem to know much about his car. I asked whether the original exhaust headers were still on there and he did not know. If i am correct from reading the thread about the cracking header risk, Ferrari came out with a stronger replacement. I didnt even ask whether he installed the Capristo brackets. He supposedly has never even seen what the car looks like from the bottom when up a lift. Really? I want to see if the car was drivevn on gravel roads or doing Dukes of Hazard jumps!..well, not sure if you can tell from looking at bottom of car for that.
Foreign cars Italia is 6 hours away. Seller mentioned Midwest Auto Group (MAG) in Dublin, Ohio was 1 hour away. anyone use either outfit? not sure i want to spend 1500 for transport fees to get the car to Foreign Cars Italia for a PPI.
Would you value the PPI done in May of this year for the seller when he bought the car? to me it doesnt mean much because for all i know, the seller could have beat the life out of the car (he thought the F430 redlines at 9000 RPM).
I do not know Jack, nor do I have any interest in his shop or this deal.
Also, I would not value a PPI from May. Why the hell is he selling the car after 6-7 months? Dude, there seem to be some red flags here, don't ignore them. You know well enough that the PPI is to cover your own @ss, and I wouldn't rely on old data for that. Good luck.
Edit: If the seller is that clueless about the car, are you really sure you want to buy it? I'm asking this because I have gotten a feel for your interest in the F-car, and it might not match up with the history of the car you're considering. Don't rush to pull the trigger on a long-distance PPI if you're on the fence about the car. It will just end up revealing things you'll be unhappy with, and you'll be a couple hundred bucks poorer. Just my opinion.
Raj- Most Ferrari owners are clueless about their cars. People who use these forums are the exception rather than the rule. Most car owners are clueless about their cars. Refrigerators on wheels, and Ferraris are just expensive refrigerators to many people.
Take your Mercedes to the dealer and be able to talk intelligently about servicing the car and you get a surprised look. Actually know what a cam variator is and watch dropped jaws.
Yea, most guys that have the money to spend on a Ferrari aren't working grunt jobs in a repair shop. Many don't even know what the buttons on the dashboard all do.
You may want to check out Exoticars in Wexford, PA. I believe they're the only thing close.
Then again, my uncle has a new Ghost, an Arnage, and a Flying Spur. When asked, he can barely tell them apart. To him, they're "tin cans" - his words, not mine. I guess, when you have SO MUCH money, you have other, more important, uses for your brain.... He also had a 355, bought USED when he took his first company public.
But, like me, he's an ENGINEER!!! :wall: Or, he was before his net worth was measured relative to Billions. :thumbsup: :D
