    Fm help. Aerial / antenna location

    Ever since I fitted my carplay/androidauto system I've lost FM on the standard radio. Hasn't really bothered me as I use tunein radio on the app. I'm going to the top gear filming on Wednesday and need FM to hear the broadcast so need to sort it. (I'll probably take a hand held radio anyway to...

    Brake caliper colour... Red vs Yellow - at last the correct answer!

    :eek: WHITE! :mock8: I know quite a few of you will absolutely hate it, but for me, I think it suits my particular car much better. There is nothing else red or yellow on the car and I thought the white would tie it in with the light interior and brighten the otherwise very dark wheel...

    Disconnected Navtrak = Transmission Failure 'Go to dealer' ?

    It was raining today, so I decided to do a couple of little jobs on the GT-Sport. One of which was to disconnect the Navtrak as I suspect it's draining my battery. Once removed, I went to fire it up and got 'Transmission Failure go to dealer' up on the dash and the car wouldn't start. :eek...

    Oops, I did it again - Another Granturismo MC-Shift

    So I'd had my 2011 Granturismo MC-Shift about 14 months. I absolutely loved it so wasn't actively 'looking' but as I'm sure a lot of you do, I had a browse on auto trader and pistonheads from time to time to see what comes up and look at the current market etc.. My car was black with black...

    Found a cheap boot spoiler for Granturismo S that fits.

    As above, I was looking for a boot spoiler for my GT-S that wouldn't break the bank, as the original ones and more well known makes are silly prices for what they are. I was after a copy of the sport MC or strad. Done some searching on here, and US sites, and couldn't really find any...

    Carbon fibre wrapping- dash, door and rear quarter interior trim pieces.

    When looking to buy my GTS, it became apparent that finding one with the exact spec I wanted, would have taken a very long time. I decided to concentrate on the big things colour, gearbox, history etc, as the little things could be sorted afterwards. One of which was the colour of the trim. My...

    DIY Service Video - GranTurismo

    Came across this the other night. A good little video clearly showing how to carry out basic service tasks on the GT, worth a watch. I won't be DIYing all my maintenance due to service history and resale value if I did, but will carry out interim oil changes etc.. I don't feel leaving things...

    USB for music. Max size?

    As above, I think I'm going to utilise the USB in the glove box (2011 GranTurismo MC-Shift with the full function USB slot) for my music needs, as from what I've read its the easiest way to listen to the music I want and retain the use of the steering wheel functions and have the albums, artist...

    Nissan GT-R Black Edition ’59 Plate with SAT NAV. Litchfield Stage 1 - 590BHP

    Unfortunately this has to go to make room for the Maserati. The wife won't let me keep both, apparently we have better things to spend the money on :( So after 3 years owning this amazing machine, it's time for someone else to enjoy it. Anyone fancy a bit of all season fun? Nissan GT-R Black...

    So following on from this thread https://www.sportsmaserati.com/index.php?threads/newbie-seriously-considering-a-gt.18527/page-3#post-649239 I definitely want one. I'm VERY close to pulling the trigger on one at a dealer, but before I do, I thought it worth while asking on here if anyone is...

    Newbie seriously considering a GT

    Just thought I'd say hi. I've joined the forum hoping to find a bit of info/and or buyers guide for a GT. I'm at that point where I've been working hard all my life (so far) and feel I should treat myself to a new motor. I've always been a petrol head but have only had a modest budget to...
