Hello All,

Can anyone recommend the best place for me to find a comprehensive Workshop Repair and Parts Manual for the F430 Coupe/Spider 2005~2009? When I bought my 2003 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage Volante I bought a DVD on EBay but it didn't have any Service Bulletins listed. Later I found out that Aston Martin has a technical website where for a fee for a 24 hour period you can download all the technical information about any one of their vehicles.

I found this to be far superior to the DVD I had purchased on EBay. So does anyone know if Ferrari offers something similar to this and if not where is the best place to purchase a Workshop Repair and Parts Manual for the Ferrari F430?

Thanks everyone,

johnfored

Hello Fabio,

I've got a question for you about your purchase from eurospares.co.uk; I get the DVD part but I don't understand what exactly you got with the USB license key? Is it a USB stick that contains a multi-linking document on it. What I mean by that is some PDF document diagrams have highlighted areas that if you're online looking at one of these documents that has a highlighted area in yellow, for example; that when you click on the yellow highlighted area you are automatically taken to another diagram that pertains to the first diagram. Is it something on the order of what I just described, whereas in order to use it's full capabilities, you need a license key? If it is like what I described that would most certainly be worth owning.

Thank you very much,

johnfored

Do NOT, under any circumstances, pay to download a Ferrari Service Manual from www.emanualonline.com !

The manuals are NOT complete. They have large sections that say "Being Prepared". These guys are based in India and quite likely the "manuals" they offer are pirated pre-production drafts of the Ferrari service manuals.

Caveat emptor.

Hi Ray, any suggestions on a "legit" source?
Not for under $20,000 which is what a paper version of the WSM (in two large 3-ring-binders) will cost from Ferrari or someone reselling their genuine set. There are genuine sets on eBay, but they are just as expensive as they are from Ferrari, and shipping costs several hundred dollars because they are all overseas and because they are bulky and heavy.

What these guys do is acquire parts of the manual here and there, and when they feel they have enough, they sell the compilation as "complete". However, some of the most basic parts, which are referred to frequently throughout what you do receive, are simply missing. They have chutzpah too. When you call them on it they simply say "it is complete". The credit card companies are aware of them and refund the purchase price without a single objection. It appears from examining what you do get are pre-production galleys sent to printers. The reason there are missing parts is that they do not have a source at those printers selected to print those sections. They have an LLC front-company in Delaware (which changes as the CC companies wise up to their scam), but their servers and headquarters are in India.
