F355 PPI-Philadelphia

I'm looking at an F355 Spider in the Philadelphia area-any suggestions on where I could have a good pre-purchasae inspection done?

Without hesitation. Just worked with them on a PPI for a 550. Great people and very thorough.

Agreed, Algar Ferrari. I've dealt with Ryan quite a bit over there. Depending on where in the Philadelphia area you are, Wil at Exoticars in Frenchtown, NJ is also a good bet. Exoticars has performed routine maint on my 360 and they are also very good and thorough. Quite advanced for an independent IMO. Wil opened the shop on a Sunday for me to visit because I was in the area which I thought was a plus on the customer service side. Some of the bodywork and restorations he has going are amazing.

I would recommend either one for sure. I would just ask about expertise with the 355.

The car sold before I got to it, so I'll look elsewhere. Thanks for the recommendations!

Had a terrible experience with Algar and got hollered at on this forum for voicing my opinion . The reason I am back is because I was next to a 512 at a red light with Algar dealers plates. I was rolling in line driving about 20mph and when I looked inside the speedo was on zero and the tach was just fine. He was on his way to the shore which is about 70 miles from home....go figure. At least someone else is getting screwed this time.
