    Ignoring my own advice

    As someone who has always been firmly in the "Onwards and upwards and never look back" camp I now feel like I have let myself down. It's been nearly 5 years since I sold my leggy but lovely Grigio Nuvolari Cambiocorsa and moved to Porschetures new, but at every Silverstone Classic meeting...

    It can't just be me. Can it?

    Ive had my 4200CC for three years now and I have enjoyed every minute of it. It has afforded me the privilege of lapping Donington, Oulton and Silverstone for the centenary events. It has taken me on 2 spectacular Euro trips taking in the Alpine passes, Maserati, Lamborghini and Ferrari...

    Silverstone Classic question for club members

    Was going to book 2 tickets tonight with the club deal but having just completed a house move and after much swearing and tipping the contents of countless cardboard boxes all over the floor, much to the distress and disbelief of the other half, I have located every club newsletter since I...

    Cure for depression

    I had almost reached the point of clinical depression after having read every one of the 200 odd pages of the centenary thread with some of you lot banging on about what a hoot it was. Then to add insult to injury, some thoughtless ******* started a centenary photo thread just to further remind...

    Monaco trip pics

    Following my post last week, explaining how my windscreen had cracked 3 hours ahead of setting off for Monaco, I am now back and am so glad I took the risk to still take the Maserati. The original crack was about 4 inches and thankfully this remained static until meeting an epic pot hole in...

    Absolute disaster!

    Tonight I set off for Monaco on a road trip planned to the nth degree over the past 12 months. I gave the car a thorough check last week and have fitted my new backboxes and a couple of tyres. Finished cleaning and packing the car this afternoon and decided to fuel up ahead of setting off, to...

    How can it be?

    When I bought the 4200 last year, the seller explained that the reason for sale was that it had been languishing in his garage as circumstances dictated that he hardly had time to use it but he had put it through an MOT prior to offering it for sale. In doing this, he must have been informed...

    Can anyone recommend a good leather treatment?

    I have decided to attend to the scuffed driver's seat bolster as my eyes are drawn to to every time I open the door and it's starting to bug me. There are loads of products out there but has anyone actually used any of these treatments and been impressed with the results? The photo makes it...

    Tyres again!!!!! Sorry.

    I apologise in advance for starting yet another tyre thread but I am due to replace both fronts on my 4200. When I joined the forum last year, much praise was being given to the Falken 452 as a realistic and cost effective alternative. It seems that these have now been superseded by the 453...

    Dash illumination and that clock

    Nearly 4 months into ownership but last night it struck me that it was the first time I have used the car in the dark. 03 4200. I noticed that the top RH 1/4 of the speedo is not as illuminated as the rest and also the centre clock does not illuminate with the lights on. I found an extremely...

    Indicator issue

    I've had my 4200CC for nearly 3 months now and sent it away for a service and general check over and the car now drives like a dream. I only have one niggling issue which I thought I could live with, but I am now finding it annoying. When I use the indicators, it takes about 180 degrees of...

    A couple of 4200 spec questions

    Hi I keep seeing cars avertised as facelift cars. I can plainly see that sometime in 03 or 04 the alloy wheels changed but what were the other changes in spec? Why do some have what look like cup holders in the centre console and some have an ashtray and lighter? Was it an option? I can...

    iPods, tyres, keys and a NIT????

    After a month of ownership, I think I have managed to find my way around the car (03 4200) and have even mastered silky and consistent camboicorsa gearshifts! I was really unsure about this gearbox during my first drive but I now think it's great. A couple of questions. 1) Without wanting...

    Finally bit the bullet

    Hi everybody, After almost 12 months of deliberation involving an unhealthy amount of time trawling for online info on sites such as this, I finally grew a pair and bought my new baby last week. Its an 03 Cambiocorsa in Grigio Nuvolari and is everything I expected it to be It...
