    2004 Maserati Coupe 4200 front and rear shocks

    The regular shocks of the 4200 are yellow. The electronic ones are silver/black and will have wires dangling above them on the front strut towers. If its not a GranSport, a conventional shock will have a “PWR” button in place of the “Sport”. GS have it marked as “Sport” regardless.

    GS is part of the facelift series so it has the newer style. Eurospares lists the exact cutoff by production number.

    WTB: 4200 spyder manual

    The issue with that are the secondary parts like the pedal box and gear lever. On an E46 M3 those parts are a dime a dozen being shared with the regular 3 but in the 4200 it is unique to this platform.

    Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio - who owns one and is it epic?

    Yea its literally the same unit so they dont have the iDrive style dials in them, at least from the L405 onwards I’m not too familiar with the prior gens.

    Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio - who owns one and is it epic?

    The facelift ones have the screen off of the Range Rover. Older ones have a different one which I assume is the bad one.

    Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio - who owns one and is it epic?

    Do you have the pre facelift or the post facelift XFR? I’ve used a late model XFR for a while and its screen while not amazing was ok. The XFR is a great car and I think one of the best sport saloons, however its really more like a 4 door GT car and its really more like a really fast luxury...

    I need a new RH Gransport badge

    Try calling new model wreckers in Australia, this part is hard to find but I managed to buy a set from them.

    Alternative parts, what everyone needs to know...

    Had I known about this place earlier I wouldn’t have bought the bushes and sent the wishbones there. For that price a complete replacement of all bushes and ball joints is not bad.

    David Beckham and Maserati

    Rapping about money is also a bit out of vogue because of the prevalence of Marxist and socialist ideologies among the newer generation over there.

    David Beckham and Maserati

    The Maserati image differs between regions. Maybe in the UK and Europe its mostly seen as a gentleman driver (in the vein of Aston Martin) but I know in America its generally seen as a boy racer/playboy type car. Granted this mostly applies to the newer stuff like the QPV and GranTurismo onwards.

    David Beckham and Maserati

    Jodie Kidd is different as she was a proper petrolhead and had already owned a 4200 prior and spoke highly of it in Top Gear, I think this was before the GS came out. She also raced the 4200 and eventually she got into an MC Strad if I’m not mistaken.

    I bought myself 4200 GT

    If the cats were already gutted what I did is empty all the OEM ones and install a sports cat center section and locate the lambdas there.

    Alternative parts, what everyone needs to know...

    While the 166 vents fit they are a slightly different design with the vents being more rounded and having an indent on one of them. The Fiat Barchetta ones are a closer match, although they do not come with chrome rings I believe. That being said there is an alloy/chrome rings set being sold...

    Brake shoes

    Alright then. Anyone know a compatible part for the late model brake shoes?

    Brake shoes

    Good to know, mine is a late model year so I’d have to run the later types. Anyone know if the above mentioned Borg and Beck set is for the old or new design? The old ones are compatible with the 550/355 set.

    Brake shoes

    Anyone have a link for the 4200 shoes? I'm also not sure whether a handbrake shoe set is for one side (2 pieces) or the whole car (4 pieces) https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/249561012?iid=232642431389 Also are they the same across the entire production run? Eurospares is giving two different part...

    Ferrari 456 on the up ?

    I’ve grown to like the 612 but its looks will always be a bit off... in most cases it looks like an overweight 599. The 456 in comparison looks svelte and understated and has more of a classic Ferrari look, stylistically its also fairly differentiated from the contemporary 550 but as I said...

    Ghibli Cup

    For £65k or thereabouts I’d look right past the Ghibli Cup and go the Shamal. Nothing wrong with the Cup, its just that the Shamal is a whole lot better.
