Aldous Voice and F360 Annual Service

Hello All,

I am fairly new to the forum and since acquiring my first Ferrari about 6 weeks ago, I have been reviewing various forums and sources of information so that I can better understand the car and things like service requirements. I recently found a forum call Aldous Voice ... actually a blog that looks like is created by an owner of a 2001 Ferrari 360 Spider.

Here is the link to Aldous Voice Aldous Voice

I thought I would post this thread here as Aldous Voice seems to have some very good and practical information. For example, the latest post ( http://aldousvoice.com/2012/11/27/ferrari-360-annual-service/ ) shows a step by step process that a shade tree mechanic might follow to perform for annual service (oil change, brake fluid flush, air filters). The steps in the posting seem straight forward and looks like something that I have done in past on my cars. After reading this posting, this does not look overly complicated and is something that I could undertake.

I would love to have others with practical experience working on their own Ferrari weigh in here with their thoughts on this. My personal thoughts are that Aldous Voice looks like a very good source of information and is well written.

Steve

Aldous is actually a Ferrari Life acquaintance, though I'm not sure he is a member of Ferrari Life. He attended our recent trip to Maranello on FLEE, and more recently I used a section of his website to assist me in my installation of my front and rear challenge grills. It was a tremendous help to me when I was doing that.

I should really ask him to sign up to FL. I'm sure he would be a great addition to the community here.

That'll be me! Hi Barry

I'm glad you have found the blog helpful. It started because I was getting a lot of requests for information from people on how to perform repair procedures. I decided to try and write as much info down in one place and the blog was born.

PS: Barry - I've uploaded the instructions for the front bumper removal: Ferrari 360 Front Bumper Removal Aldous Voice

Voicey,

Great blog! I am looking into doing a CS kit installation as well. Did you lighten your car up in anyway? (other than the titanium bolts)
