    Question for the ferrari regulars
    If you own a ferrari f12 and you get the corrosion will ferrari
    step up and fix?
    I assume its a issue because a car i looked at the dealer had this problem.

    Many cars had the issue but not all. The dealer should fix it beef you take ownership and it should be done to your satisfaction or pass. I was told and read that Ferrari will cover under the extended warranty.

    My understanding is that there are spacers between the metal mesh and body which keep it from rusting. However Ferrari in their wisdom won't do that fix until there is a problem and they have to paint the area as well.

    In my younger years i was in car stereo and alarm business so taking apart cars was easy .
    If not up to it a good body shop will do it ....since they take cars apart all the time.

    I went ahead and scheduled a proactive fix. Basically they will insert plastic spacers between the mesh grill and the paint to eliminate galvanic corrosion. I dont know the cost but I am guessing between 1K and 2k. All labor.

    Interestingly I learned that the 812 has the same problem, Ferrari did not learn from the F12.

    gh another thought make sure when they release the nuts make sure they are aluminum.
    If not get aluminum material nuts.

    Was this covered under a corrosion warranty? My F12 is out of factory warranty and I don't have the extended warranty. My car is a 2016 and is showing the bubbling now.

    I "think" Ferrari has an extended warranty for corrosion but I am not certain. You should contact a local dealer and/or maybe someone else here knows.
