“Dude comes straight from the dealership for a baby car-seat installation, but halfway through the car disables itself (I’m guessing some anti-tamper safeguard). Hilariously, the boys at Ferrari can’t remotely fix it because there’s no reception underground.”

 

“I didn’t mess around with the car myself, given its worth~$500k, but the owner was on the phone to Italy for about an hour trying to sort it out. its for sure something that has to be remotely reactivated.”

 

“Update* They’ve flown a very Italian sounding Ferrari technician in from Sydney to move the $500k paperweight, but he hasn’t got the tools to disable the engine lock. The only option now is to tow. P.s. Look at how inconvenient the guy’s parking job is for our warehouse operations.”

 

“‘I look-a-da engine and-a diagnostic, I see no problem eh? You must-a call-a-da tow-truck, I can no help. Mama mia!’ – Real conversation”

“We talked through the old mobile hot-spot trick with the tech, he said “no no no is not work”.”

“So, does that mean that the Ferrari tech went to Victoria for nothing, and now can’t go back to NSW without at least quarantining due to the border closure?”

“As far as I can tell, the fact that it didn’t have a signal when the engine-lock was engaged put the car into a “super-lockdown-omfg” mode, and can’t be remotely reactivated remotely. The only way to release the lock is with a special tool that gets plugged in underneath the steering column, which the tech decided not to bring from out-of-state.”

 

”*Final Update* And there it goes, boys, a true marvel of engineering and design. Sleek, powerful and able to hoist and tow up to 7 tonnes, including this bricked as [email protected]#k Ferrari. Farewell and thanks for the laughs.”

 

“For anyone interested, our technician friend was able to manually release the handbrake through the boot, and we pushed it up to the road. The thing was heavier than I expected, but then I haven’t pushed many supercars tbh. The fact it had no signal at the time of the tamper safeguard being triggered meant that remote recovery wasn’t an option, even when we moved it into the open.”

I don't think you know what quotation marks mean. That's actually a Ferrari, not a "Ferrari".

They 'know' I 'think', but then again maybe they 'don't'

Strange, my '79 Saab 99 never goes into "we-just-automatically-bricked-your-car LMAO mode" just by installing a child seat.
