    Attention all guitarists

    I neither got around to learning an instrument, but I made sure I got my kids had a go at it; not for a career just so that they have had the experience. They played the violin for a while, their choice, I was hoping they would pick the guitar. My son also used an iPad app for a while and he...

    Dehumidifier

    45-55% relative humidity, needs to be almost well sealed for that as safrane wrote. Edit: never pull the plug on these and try to not let them stop abruptly. Always power off so machine can run and let the desiccant wheel dry/cool down.

    Wife's Cooling Foot Spa.

    Reminds me of my trip last year, wife got foot wash in every right handed curve. Was a semi blocked cabin air filter box in my case. The fusebox got a bit damp and the info center suffered a few blackouts but no noticeable long term effects. When cleaning it up, the carpets did smell of coolant...

    I’ve bought a cheap Maserati

    The AC drain - seems to the first job for all new 4200 owners. It should have been mine, but I only got the AC re-gassed the day before a trip to the continent and then found out about the blocked drain when the fan housing dumped out water on every fast right handed curve. Check the sound...

    4200 rear seats

    Can almost answer that one. Last summer mine (early teens) were OK in the back for a week long trip to the continent in the back of my 4200. When they were smaller they fit into the back seats of a Porsche 928 with booster seats, and that one is more cramped than the 4200.

    Garage Dehumidifiers

    No consumables in a Maeco. Also, don't turn them off from the socket - only from the off button; the desiccant wheel needs to cool down first, otherwise the thermal fuse blows. If your garage is fairly dust free check/clean filter at the back once a week, dust can get sucked into the pores of...

    Garage Dehumidifiers

    I use this one for shed and garage, I get about 2-3 years use till they break. These will work if garage gets cold, compressor type (at least the cheap ones) can freeze up in winter: https://www.meaco.com/dehumidifier/home-dehumidifiers/meaco-dd8l-dehumidifier-is-a-which-best-buy Should be...

    GS noise - what’s closest to a F360 / F430 sounding exhaust

    Not going to get the flatplane sound, but going x-pipe and no back boxes does make it "noticeable". Here the link to a sound file (the 4200/GS Hybrid Sound File one) in a post from Rockits (made before I got the car from him).

    Aircon Leak? 2006 4200

    Does it drip a lot more on fast right hand curves? :) Do taste test and if clear water (plus carpet dirt) try this one: https://www.sportsmaserati.com/index.php?threads/aircon-clean-out-pollen-filter.222/

    Summer Road Trip

    Great road trip, much better than my quick hop over to Germany and back. I used to live in Andalusia, would love a long road trip all the way South.

    The 4200/GS Hybrid rides again

    I got going on drying out the car, getting out the pollen filter, and removing and cleaning the little black tube. As expected, water in the pollen filter airbox, but not a lot debris in there, also nothing in the black tube. Blockage was higher, closer to the drain. The outlet and tube bend...

    The 4200/GS Hybrid rides again

    It does, and gets better with higher revs. Should do, as it is just the cats, steep X, and the rest is all straight out.

    The 4200/GS Hybrid rides again

    Fair enough, I take that point. My air filter box does seem to be able to levitate. Definitely need at least new mounts, maybe more.

    The 4200/GS Hybrid rides again

    Thanks for the welcome. Fettling is a need, but also a great counter balance to an office job. Part of the factors that makes it possible to own cars like the 4200.

    The 4200/GS Hybrid rides again

    Thought I would write a quick update after almost 3 weeks of ownership of the 4200/GS Hybrid. For recent history see here and here. Pre purchase inspection was a crawl underneath the car, chatting to Dean who was very honest about the car, and reading the old threads about the car. That is the...

    The 4200/GS Hybrid Is Back....Opinions & Thoughts On Next Step???

    Back box valves that is - not the other kind found in amps. Single ended big tube valve amps - yes very low WAF

    The 4200/GS Hybrid Is Back....Opinions & Thoughts On Next Step???

    Valved would be way to go. Would also mean I could use the car early in the morning without waking up my neighbours. Also, as is said in the home audio circles - valved would have a higher WAF. My wife was moderately embarrassed this morning dropping her and my daughter off to music classes...
