    Maserati I guess doesn't quite have Aston's challenges....

    Since Aston Martin Lagonda listed this time last year, basically everything has gone wrong for the luxury carmaker. The share price has tanked (albeit that it has ticked up a bit over the past month), demand in the automotive market has stopped dead, and the company has been burning through cash...

    Is this right?

    I recently read this in an article from 2018, presumably this is the ZF gearbox but is this in the 2017 onwards only model? "Maserati has added an excellent new function to the transmission – a downshift mode whereby electronics automatically blip the V8 and skip to the correct gear when the...

    First impressions on Larini X-pipe

    Have just installed a new Larini X-pipe on a GTS Automatic post 2013 model. The burbles have definitely become more apparent. Sound is louder in Sport Manual, it wasn’t my aim but it is.

    McCarrolls Maserati Sydney

    Have to say everytime I go to my dealer I've had a great experience at McCarrolls, Artarmon service team. Adriano and team have been very easy to deal with and if ever there's been a mistake it's made in my favour. No one has asked me to say this but thought good service deserves recognition.
