Cdem, I was also interested in a 550 at a Ferrari dealership. Price was too high for the market, and as soon as I brought up the subject of a PPI, the salesman dropped me like a hot rock. Guess he felt people should take him at his word, "just because he worked for Ferrari". He was also rude enough to mention that he really didn't have time for me and my used 550 deal, as he was currently working several "big" 599 and 458 deals.
So, I bumped things up to the general manager of the dealership and explained the difficulty I was having buying one of his cars, and he was fine with me running the PPI and it found some expensive things that needed sorting that the hotshot salesman had "missed". The GM & I then made a deal that we were both happy with and I bought a car without any surprises.
Definitely recommend you get the PPI no matter who is selling the car or who has "certified" it.
As Brian said, fill out more of your profile and we can advise you who's in your area who can do PPI's.

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.
