    Is it me...

    Couldn’t be more disappointed with the design. I used to own a 1996 Supra NA and then sold it and got a 1999 TT when I came over to UK. Having seen the so called replacement, I actually started looking for the old one again- if only my garage is big enough . Not sure why they decided to use...

    Autocare article - why Maserati Granturismo might not yet be considered a classic

    Got this in my email - not sure what the link is. I would argue that it is already out of production and already a classic in my mind :-) Here is the article There’s actually one very good reason why the Maserati GranTurismo might not yet be considered a classic, and that’s because it...

    Stradale Mileage

    2014 - 22k. Relatively well used compared to the ones on the forum. It is surprising to me that you don’t have the constant urge to go out and drive. I thought azapa is always driving - only 12.5k !

    812 Superfast

    +1 While the performance from the V12 is so good, A Ferrari attracts a bit too much negative attention for me. strangely, I still prefer the Granturismo exhaust note, and just like what Conaero said - the styling and the package of it just does not my soul and emotional a Granturismo does...

    New car mats

    What do you think of the rear mats? I have sent an email to seller, surprise surprise no reply. While I like the front, I think I am returning mine because the rear mats just don’t fit at all. Unless if they have sent me the wrong ones?

    Man maths assistance requested please?

    I do wonder if that he was kicking himself and will start returning calls promptly. How difficult is returning phone calls? A car salesperson who does not follow up the leads quickly - he should be fired ! How could these people sell these exotic cars of when they do not even have the...

    I am sure that you told them that you have bought one elsewhere and they have missed out your business!

    Maserati Granturismo Stradale Wheels - do they weight different?

    Hmmm, so is it actually true that the Trofeo design wheels are forged and MC-Design ones not ? Or are they all manufactured using th same process? This is probably a very obscure level of details on the GT.

    Maserati Granturismo Stradale Wheels - do they weight different?

    Thinking about replacing the Trofeo design wheels with the MC-Design wheels. However, does anyone know if they weight the same? On th Maserati Spec brochure, the Torfeo Design Wheel is labeled as “Forged”, where as the MC-Design one isn’t. I think forged wheels are lighter based on my very...

    New car mats

    Yes, I have contacted the seller. The front looks great, but the rear is a half baked job in my opinion. The rear should have followed the same design and going up the wall and tugged under the centre console at the back - just like the front. I don’t think I will keep them, because the rear...

    Pre warranty expiry checks

    Not sure how common these issues are. I had my Stradale fully checked by an Autofficina given the Maserati warranty expires end of this month. Took the car to Maranello in Egham and they repaired the following under warranty - oil leak from O/S Cam cover - very minor leak. I think this must...

    New car mats

    Ok, I have tried the diamond car mats on... The front ones look nice and fit nicely, unfortunately the rear car mats don’t fit properly and they don’t go up and cover the side walls like the front ones do. So happy with the front ones, but measurement on the rear mats is not accurately and...

    Squeaky brakes ? Here is the Maserati response

    Not sure if I trust myself to do this, never done it before and would not even know where to start. I guess you need to take the pad off and apply grease? Just not technical enough to do this.

    Squeaky brakes ? Here is the Maserati response

    Not sure if you guys have seen this, here is Maserati’s excuse for producing squeaky brakes. I have this issue, although not very severe, on my Stradale.

    I am waiting for mine to wear out so that I could change to Michelin - after reading so many posts on the Pirelli Pzero Corsa.

    Now that is pushing it too far - a 15k granturismo

    All very interesting discussions. It is actually a good thing that we are seeing these unloved Maserati GT being sold at a ridiculously low price, because of the terrible condition these cars are in. In the short term, not good news for anyone trying to sell the Granturismo, because...

    Brembo ceramic disks service and maintenance

    Thanks Oliver, I think being a new Strad owner, you are probably as obsessed as I am, trying to find any document and video Stradale related! I even bought the 2014 Stradale dealer brochure and the spec details brochure off someone on eBay - just to see what was actually available and what my...

    New car mats

    I have just received mine, but car at the dealer to sort out a few minor issues - making the most of my warranty before it expires. The car mat is decent quality, with nice red stiching to go with the car interior. Given that it is a weekend car and not used in wet/winter, I think it is...
