    QPV - Alloy Wheel colour code?

    Slight curveball here... wheel repairers called up just a second ago saying that one of my rear tyres has suffered damage to the sidewall, a 'chunk' is missing, and there's a nail in it as well!! I asked if it was holding air in... and they believe so, but would only put it back on as an...

    Grill repair

    I'll be selling mine eventually... but I doubt you'd want it as I repaired it, only to find that my repairs didn't withstand :( I have resolved to purchasing a new one... eventually.

    QPV - Alloy Wheel colour code?

    I think Devonboy was doing his best to belittle me, and his retort may also have been construed as an attempt at humour... however, he has failed yet again ;):D The chock BTW is because the parking brake seems to get a bit 'stuck' when driving off, particularly when it's rained overnight...

    Time for the before snaps... all in a very bad state (it wasn't me... honestly). Dropping her off this afternoon, very excited.

    Good shout. I take it your wheels aren’t on original paint?

    QPV - Alloy Wheel colour code?

    It’s mad, but I also agree with your presumption... only way to find out I guess would be to go to a main Dealer, but there’s no chance I’ll be doing that!

    That faux fur throw was bought a few years back I’ll have you know. My darling wife bought a job lot of these from eBay when I was out of commission earlier this year after a hospital op :)

    Having been through this twice in the last year, my understanding is that superficial damage that doesn’t affect the integrity of the car (but in the eyes of insurance remains ‘uneconomical to repair’, the car is written off, bought back by the owner) is then classified as Cat N?

    An old magazine I've read, that I couldn't chuck into the paper recycling - I'm sure someone here would appreciate it, particularly the in-depth feature on the Integrale. Free to a good home - just PM me you're address and I'll send it over. NB. Faux-fur throw I'm sitting on is not included.

    Thanks Andy... With a bit of research, here's what my car looked like when it was up for sale some years back: And here's how she looked for the previous owner: For me, the original colour is a little too 'bright' and the way they are today, just a bit too dark. I think the below picture...

    Really sorry to hear this Alan, I know how much you wanted one of these cars - this is terrible luck. Hope you get it sorted, and that the ensuing process isn't too painful nor arduous.

    Levante

    I'm on the fence with this one... in the right spec and with bigger alloys, they look glorious. I saw one parked up in Reigate high street a few months ago and I couldn't help but think 'niiiice'.

    Thanks rs. I wonder if I email Maserati themselves whether they'll be able (and willing) to help... EDIT: I've emailed them, let's see what they say!

    QPV - Alloy Wheel colour code?

    Hi gents, I have the multi-trident design wheels below... but they've been refurbed at some point in their lives to a much darker chrome. As they're badly curbed, now is the perfect time to restore them but also get them back to their OEM-spec colour of Dark Chrome, as per the brochure excerpt...

    Black 2015 Ghibli just outside of Coulsdon... I was in the QP, and despite pulling up next to him at the lights he was adamant that he wasn’t going to make eye contact...!
