Major Service to share.. due to LHS Petrol pump failure

I want to share a service report of my car.

This is a Service has been done 1.5 months ago on my car at dealer. I didn't pay of course. the total sum is : 128000 AED = 35068 USD.
All prices are in AED (1 USD = 3.65 AED)

I'm happy cuz it cost something to make insurance pay it but all replaced parts have warranty for one year. Service is done on 20th March. BTW this service costed me 820 USD

I've seen a bit of smoke and bad smell. well below front bumper there were stone marks and scratches at down because of big humps...

No accident. These are internal engine parts. No any body job as you see.

None of those are internal engine parts. They are all parts that would have been replaced from a very heavy hit to the rear end.

No, There is no puzzle here. I explained what happened. All parts are replaced due to a smoke smelling fuel while driving.

I Stopped and called dealer. They just suggested to turn off elect switch and be aware cuz it might be petrol pipes or it's caused of some leakage. So they said do not open the engine's hood if you don't have fire extinguisher. Well.. I didn't go for adventure

It was petrol pump and it's pipe. Some leakage caused this. The engine's down side and all those beautiful connection pipes,Even exhaust pipes were so dirty. They suggested me to get a police report inside ferrari's workshop and get insurance as warranty couldn't help.

So half of engine's part there became white (like ash) or black like burned been replaced. Dealer needed to give me back an engine like day 1.

So all parts related to that incident were replaced. I'm happy for this anyway

I attached the link to have a comparison of prices of parts because I'm in doubt the prices and labor charge here is much much higher than USA.

I must correct this, not internal engine parts. They are engine parts related to the leakage which caused smoke.

When you hit the car then need to fix the body not engine.


ummm... then sell it! and buy another she.

I asked if I can replace with a tubi or capristo! main issue was the shipping time otherwise it was possible to do so.

Keep in mind,if back of your car leaks, always fix front bumper scratches! that can be the cause! seriously!

It became white like a lot of ash around it. dirty. so replaced.
99% of parts were just dirty. but can they clean it for me and put it back? NO! it's dealer and must do it's work! changing changing changing! replace everything instantly! that's how they make money!
like the brake issue! they said whistle? no problem whole pads replace! 2000 USD.

Pooya- At least now you will have a car with half the parts new. They even swapped out the motor mounts when they did the work. That is what happens when you give a Ferrari dealer a blank check. Have seen similar numbers on a 550 where many very expensive parts were changed.
