    So after dreaming of owning a ferrari for over 15 years, I’m planning on doing what feels like the most crazy thing I will likely every do and become a Ferrari owner!

    Ive been searching for around 2 years I have narrowed it down to two cars.

    Having trawled through endless Ferrari chat - realising the search function / the user isn’t good at finding results I figured I would post given I am close to purchasing.

    Before I spend the money I’m looking for a Ferrari specialist from Birmingham/ Leicestershire / Derby area to perform a pre-purchase check / inspection on a 550 and 575 I have my eye on. To make things harder I am currently stuck abroad.

    So I’m asking the ferrari chat community if they can recommend a trusted and respected company / individual that can assess the cars on my behalf and provide any recommendations or identify any concerns.

    Thank you all for any recommendations and advice in advance. Any additional recommendations (or links to useful threads) on things to look out for on 550/575 are appreciated as I have searched and found a decent list but will likely have missed others.

    I would also try Migliore in Bromsgrove - they have looked after 4 different 550/575s for me over the last 10 years.

    Not a PPI but have you seen John’s 550 for sale? I’ve seen the car and know John; well worth a look. I believe advertised on here.

    Maybe slightly further away than you'd wish but I would use The Supercar Rooms in Worcestershire.
    I take my 360 there even though it's a 90 minute drive from me and I'd use them for PPI if I was considering a purchase.
