"Breakers"?

Isn't that a term used with CB radios?

I would suggest you contact Eurospares in London.

Due to freight costs and possible damage you don't want to have those replacement items shipped long distances!

Plus you need a few Euro model parts for your vehicle.

Best thing to do since you'll save yourself a ton of problems.

Body parts on 2ndary market are not well packed and can easily be damaged.

To tell you truth, my friend smashed it. Its one of them when you have a nice car and cherish it, all your friends want to borrow it. Its f*****g annoying. I couldn’t say no to him as hes close friend and it was his birthday. He lost it round a bend and went straight into a wall, said he wasn’t speeding, like hell he wasn’t you cant resist not to. It takes time to get used to the handling like it did for me when you jump out of a standard car into a supercar. He was with his girlfriend at the time so probz showing off and under estimated the car. At the time he said he was fully insured to drive any car, when it came to the crunch he was only insured to drive cars to a certain value, obviously excluding the Ferrari….gutted!!! anyways he had no choice so he paid for the repairs out of his pocket. I wanted all the parts from Ferrari but they were costing him a fortune. Me still being a good friend settled for used parts but original. The cars repaired and looks just how it was, probz better if anything all polished up with the alloy refurbs which he also paid for. took it to Ferrari for a service and got everything checked out for a piece of mind., everything was perfect. Im just glad its back on the road and yes guys Iv learnt my lesson BIG time never let anybody borrow my car they can F off. I hope everybody learns from this and thanx guys for helping me (or should I say my friend) locate the parts.

I will post pics.

You got a good friend who stuck by his word and paid for the damage he caused. Everyone lost in a case like this but your friendship has gotten stronger than ever. Most people who you call friends would have skated and told you to sue him or filed bankruptcy.

Well put Lambo: I would have no problems with such a friend as well. However, at this time, I am scoping out who is more capable of driving the car, wife doesn't count as she is good at it, but others, well gotta keep them in care....what if they have gotten injured, so, I'm in the car with them or not letting them....mostly I let others drive that own exotics or near ones.

Like OP said, how could one NOT let such get the better of their desires. which is why I stay away from Motorcycles anymore...Had bro's out a couple years ago and before you knew It I was doing wheelies and etc. .... had to hold my self down, rode back, tossed him the keys and said, 'don't let me on it again'

I had a case like yours happen recently. I live in Illinois and send my cars to get them serviced at www.modexotics.com in the winter time for service in Palm Beach, Florida. A friend of mine begged me if he can borrow one of my Ferraris or Lamborghinis. I told him just to rent a car and he told me he needed to keep his image and could not be seen in a shitbox Corvette or BMW. I finally gave in and told him he can borrow my 360 Spider which was decked out with the Haman kit/rims and recently was fully serviced and ready to be shipped to Illinois. The function he was there for was Supercar Weekend 2009 back in February. Long story short, he cracked the front spoiler and blew out the clutch. He promised to pay for the spoiler but keeps on giving the www.modexotics.com the runaround and questioning the clutch. Stay tuned, I will let you know what kind of friend he is. You can see my car on the youtube video on www.modexotics.com. I had a capristo 3 exhaust system installed, as well as the rear challenge grill. I also had the Hamann aero body kit and rims installed. See how you like it. You will either love it or hate it.
