    Pre purchase inspection

    Definitely a PPI, unless you know 100% that the dealer can be trusted. I have learned my lesson the hard way - they all seem nice before they got your money, but totally different when you encounter issues after the sale. I have more faith on the main dealers (based on experiences with a few...

    Confession of my stupidity

    I have called DVLA actually, and confirms that I was still the owner. The dealer would need to be stupid to actually sell me car as well, that would happen if they think they are above the criminal justice system in the U.K. and just take what they want!

    Confession of my stupidity

    I have already written to them stating that I am rejecting the car. I don’t really want to keep the car purchased, given the longer I keep it, the harder it may be in rejecting it. By bringing the car back to them within 7 days of the purchase, they have no legs to stand on in any legal...

    Confession of my stupidity

    Yeah, they have both cars and my money! Please let me know if anyone is looking for cars up north - 5 hours away from London. Not even sure why anyone would think it was ok to keep both cars and money and get away with it? Greed I guess.

    Confession of my stupidity

    Hello fellow Maserati enthusiasts, I need to confess that I have done something so so stupid. Stupidly, I trusted a used car salesman and traded in my Stradale for another (well, just because I wanted the colour and carbon combination). Long story short (well, I will try to make it short), I...

    Main dealer service history - is it important?

    Any good Maserati specialist near GC Motors that anyone would recommend?

    Main dealer service history - is it important?

    Exactly what the salesman told me, but I am worried about the lack of brake fluid change, no lambda sensor change, poly v belt ...etc as Zep had mentioned earlier

    Main dealer service history - is it important?

    Good Good suggestion, was thinking exactly that, there is no way for me to proceed based on the salesman’s words.

    Main dealer service history - is it important?

    This is what they have done for the 4 year major service - looks suspiciously cheap in my opinion. Salesperson claimed that they are an authorised Maserati servicing centre, but I am not sure if the service was done according to manufacturer standard. It cost me 3k+ when I serviced my GTS at a...

    Main dealer service history - is it important?

    More importantly, would you buy a car that was serviced by the dealer selling the car? Looking at a stradale from GC Motor, and the 4 year major service was done by GC Motor itself, a little bit concerning, they are not even a specialist! What do you all think? Should I be worry? Or should I...

    Am I crazy?

    You have made me feel better now, maybe I am not crazy, but just obsessed with the Maserati!

    Am I crazy?

    I see, a bit like webuyanycars trying to pick on every single imperfection on a second hand car so that they could knock down the price further. I will be walking away if they try stitching me up like that - Nothing to lose really, because I have already got one. Although I do like the colour...

    Am I crazy?

    Black with the same interior as the white one, minus the carbon kick plate and centre console around the 1 and R buttons. Outside, it does not have the carbon pack, I guess it makes little sense as you can hardly see them on a black car.

    Am I crazy?

    Well, provisionally... provided they could move the carbon fibre instrument cluster. Wrapping is not my cup of tea, I like my car nice and shiny, and just love the white/carbon contrast(but without the naked carbon fibre bonnet).

    Am I crazy?

    I have always had an obsession with a Stradale in white with all the carbon fibre bits, but simply could not resist the opportunity to buy Stu’s Stradale back in November. Now that one came up at GC Motors (anyone had any experience with them?), link here -...

    Granturismo instrument cluster in carbon fibre

    Hello all, can anyone advise if the carbon fibre instrument cluster is single piece, or is this something that can be replaced with carbon fibre without replacing the speedometer?

    Has anyone viewed this Stradale?

    https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/maserati/granturismo/maserati-granturismo-4-7-mc-stradale-semi-a-2dr/9482682 In fact, maybe someone in this forum who used to own it?

    Back in the game.......

    Congrats Stu, wow you bought 2!! This shows how difficult it is to replace a Maserati Granturismo, not many other options out there to give you the same driving emotion and pleasure at this price level, and not as shouty as a Lamborghini or Ferrari. Why are all your Maserati black? Not that I...

    Not a good Sunday

    So sorry to hear about it, and even more so seeing the photos, just not nice seeing a damaged GT, even more when it is a Stradale. I am sure your insurance company will probably argue that she is also partially at fault. However, it is probably unlikely for you be the non fault party given you...
