Ferrari 360 Major Scheduled Service

One of the more iconic cars to come into our workshop is the Ferrari 360 seen below. Unlike a previous Ferrari which was here for a twin supercharger project, this one is here for ongoing service maintenance.

A major scheduled service was completed on this Ferrari due to the current km on the vehicle and the log book schedule. We replaced the oil and air filters including the spark plugs. Also used was some brake fluid and transmission oil.
