I recently bought the Auto Enginuity Ferrari software for my techs Aaron and John. They work mostly on older Ferraris, so I figured I would buy the software and see if they could get my F1 hard fault to clear. This hard fault was due to a loose connector on one of the shift potentiometers, which after reattaching worked fine. She still had a hard fault and CEL, however, that could not be cleared with an OBD II tool. The CEL could be cleared, but came back as soon as she was shut down and restarted. AI requires you to buy a very complete set of software tools to purchase the Ferrari software tool, so it also included the ability to work on most US, Asian, and European cars as a bonus. Turns out they had just made a change combining some of the packages, so the entire package came in at $3500. That is quite a bit less than an SD-X or Leonardo, to say the least, even Leonardo's single model package.
So, does it work? Yup, and it ran an F1 self test and cleared the F1 hard fault with no problems. Aaron and John bought a Windows 7 laptop to house the software and that makes it very easy to transport and use. There are a few things missing, but AE included all updates in the price of the Ferrari package, so we are hoping updates will improve the package even more. One thing Aaron and John wanted to see in the future was the ability to reset the service indicator in late model Ferraris, something that does not affect those of us with 575s or earlier V12s. As they use the software more, I will report on more details on the system. Right now it looks like a bargain in the Ferrari maintenance world, and is inexpensive enough that an owner who is a good wrench could afford the package. Below are the print-outs from the F1 system on 135171. I still have 75% remaining on my clutch after 22,500 miles, although that print-out is not included here.
For some reason, I did not get charged for the AE diagnostics on 135171.
