LOL, I won't even ask!

Wow on the screw-up. Too bad Doug & RCScoringPro.com wasn't down there.. Never would have had any problems in the first place.

I'd probably make more money that way......


Of course........if I was worried about money, I wouldn't have a car that costs $650 to change the oil.

How does it cost 650 to change oil in a car? Do you have it shipped back to Italy for service or something?

The oil alone is ~$50-60 a quart.

Shell Helix 10w60 oil, which from my understanding, was developed for Ferrari. I could be mistaken on that..

You have to run that oil, or Ferrari won't honor the warranties on the engine.

Jiffy Lube will take good care of the car... once the service tech has driven it to Mexico.

I had to replace the wiring harness in a Ferrari once. Do you understand how long that took not being to read italian? I would charge you that much too Italian cars are a design nightmare. You need some farfignugen.

The oil isn't cheap.....and its not the easiest thing to change the oi in a ferraril....they do some other stuff....its just pricey all around.

Just an example, my heater core failed.....replacement cost $2900 PLUS installation.......how a $2900 heater core fails in a car less than 10 years old is beyond me.....my brothers 70 chevelle has the ORGINAL $50 heater core in it still in perfect working order.

I wouldn't take my lawn mower to jiffy lube.....only reason I go there is to buy the cool hotwheels they have sometimes....

Any news on the standings? Just curious how my boy peter is doing.
