    CGT Windshield operation!

    My CGT was delivered with a defect in the windshield, no problem they are replacing it with a new one... Take a look at the pictures! The whole front of the car comes off for this! Thought you guys might enjoy... BTW the V-1 will be hardwired at this time.

    Re: CGT Windshield operation!

    Awesome pictures! I love seeing the suspension on a CGT!

    Re: CGT Windshield operation!

    yeah, that's partially why it's $9K :-(

    Re: CGT Windshield operation!

    It's shocking, the dealer said 4k for the windshield alone!

    Re: CGT Windshield operation!

    yeah, and mine is already way pitted. imo, as low as these cars are along with the shape and aerodynamics, any CGT driven more than just sundays is going to have a sandblasted looking windshield too. btw, i wonder where they came up with $9k if the material is "only" $4k. $5k in tax and labor seems way high even considering the level of difficulty. then again, i've been told $25k on the clutch and the parts are "only" $17 to $18k.

    Re: CGT Windshield operation!

    I'll let you know how much mine comes to when it's done, 9k seems insane!

    Re: CGT Windshield operation!

    Guys whatever you do sell the car before your warranty runs out. Repair costs for supercars are astronomical.

    How long is the warranty?

    Re: CGT Windshield operation!

    I think they charge supercar owners what they think they can afford to pay.

    In that case Nick, you should sell your F430 before the warranty expires, lest you be reamed by Ferrari. I'm sure you've read over on 6Speed how a 15k miles routine maintenance service for a 360 Modena turned out to be a $15,000 mega bill. And this is just for a "regular" Ferrari...imagine the Enzo.

    Cheers,

    3 yr for ferrari, and a 1/3 longer on porsche (including the CGT).

    100% mark up from porsche's already not real cheap ceramic brake replacement by ferrari should likely be a good indication of how reasonable ferraris are out of warranty. then again, most of the repairs in warranty (including some emissions related stuff they've denied coverage for despite them being clearly in warranty) are fairly stagering (as the $15k, 15k mile service would indicate - ps. the 15k is rarely done at 15k but instead at much lower mileage).

    Re: CGT Windshield operation!

    Alrighty thanks.

    How long did it take them to take off the front of the car to repair the windshield? Seems like its one or two pretty major unites that come off. Also, do they have to reallign the panels once it is placed back on the chassis?

    Re: CGT Windshield operation!

    That looks cool without the front, love the mechanicals.

    Can you just drive it around like this ? The Porsche Prowler :

    Lets just say that in the middle east your car will be sandblasted even without the sunday drive.

    The normal cost for a 15,000 maintenance on a 360 is less than $5000. I have no idea what happen to the individual who posted on ferrarichat that it would cost him $12,000. That is an aberation.

    Hmn, on second thought no it isn't. All Ferrari's are very expensive to maintain. Porsche owners should stick with Porsche's.
